sending at commands over pppoe?


I'm using fedora core 4, have a ethernet modem. I ran adsl-setup and modem connects pppoe fine but I want to know is it possible/how to send hayes modem AT commands before/during PPPoE establishes? Do i do it in some custom chat script? at the moment this is what comes up in "ps aux | grep pppd"

Ss 05:30 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd pty /usr/sbin/pppoe -p /var/run/pppoe-adsl.pid.pppoe -I eth0 -T 80 -U -m 1412 ipparam ppp0 linkname ppp0 noipdefault noauth default-asyncmap defaultroute hide-password nodetach mtu 1458 mru 1492 noaccomp noccp nobsdcomp nodeflate nopcomp novj novjccomp user username@myisp.com lcp-echo-interval 20 lcp-echo-failure 3

So why do you need to send AT commands to an ethernet modem? I could be mistaken but I doubt the modem will recognize an AT command.

im not an expert in hardware stuff..but i know u can send at commands to a serial modem..like hayes at commands. I have a ipwireless modem, i know there is a usb driver for it but i just wanna know if it is possible to send a AT command string over ethernet. With the AT command I will be able to retrieve modem RF signal conditions, battery level..etc..would appreciate if someone would point me to the right direction...

Here are some wireless tools that I think is what you are asking about.
See man pages for iwconfig, iwspy, iwlist, iwpriv.
