u can try this link to see if u have got this far with ur set up yet...or in a terminal window (as root)u can use the adsl-setup command, u will need the user name etc...that ur isp should have given u. Ur connection should be pppoe. U don`t say which version of linux u r using but u will need the pppoe client installed....rpm -q pppoe to find this out. When u post a question try to give a bit more info to make it easier for people to help u :-)

As I said in my previous post u will need to open a terminal window and as root
su (enter root password)
adsl-setup
this will then prompt u for information to set up your connection.
when it is complete u can use
adsl-start/stop to connect to the internet.
