Would google have taken too long for your urgent matter? And a better subject would've been "Unable to bring up pppoe link". Then a description of what you've tried, what you've googled, and what the results have been. See the link in my signature for more details on how to get a better response out of us who spend our time voluntarily answering your questions. If you're using the user-space pppoe daemon, try just 'pppoe'. If you're using the roaring penguin pppoe system, try 'adsl-setup'. If you can tell us which distribution you are using and which pppoe client you are using, we would be better equipped to assist you.

There are very few times I get riled up on here. If you had bothered to read my message, I did discuss possible solutions to your issue. You should be grateful that there are people willing to use THEIR time to help YOU for free.

Mhamad, people here volunteer their time and knowledge to help others. Calling your thread 'urgent' makes it impossible to see if it's worth looking into or not (or: I know the answer or not), so there's less probability to get your answer. Also, attacking someone who noticed the facts above is not a good idea and is not accepted. Especially when the person gave you answer.

What's funny is when you make a new topic is says right there "Don't use titles like Urgent!" or something along those lines! Is this going to be closed?

I'm glad that others seem to agree I wasn't wrong to comment on that one. It really does help us help others.

People on LQ are usually much better at being polite about answering newbie questions than anywhere else I've seen, but there are times when you have to draw the line. I'd support deleting any thread with a useless subject, but perhaps I'm too harsh. Mhamad people aren't trying to bash you, but please put some effort into reading how to post before you do so.

Also required would be some more extra information, such as, distro, modem, area of the world.

But i do tend to laugh at people who use the *SHOCK* headings for topics, mostly because i used to do similar things when i was a newbie. But you soon learn after getting flamed and bitched at constantly.

To Mhamad, google is your best friend, lq is your second best friend, but making new threads with stupid titles will get you no where on any forum. I'd suggest you start a new thread called "How to launch pppoe from console", and follow the advice given by Matir.

Maybe the mods should ban topics with "urgent" in the titles

I absolutely agree with Matir and other LQers...People don't even have to read "how to ask questions the right way" but just use their common sense.
