Unhappy Creating username and password authenticated network connection


Hi guys,
This is my first post in this forum and I'm quiet new to Linux. I have a broadband internet connection which needs username and password authentication to get connected. In windows it was possible to create such a connection for my DSL modem but how do I do it in Linux. Please guide me through it.

Thanks

Welcome to LQ

I use rp-pppoe for my ADSL connection. You can download the sources from the site, but your distro probably already has a package for it. Setting it up is as easy as running (as root, in a terminal window) pppoe-setup and answering the questions.

Thanks

Thanks dude for that tip....I got connected.
Instead of pppoe-setup, i used adsl-setup and answered questions. pppoe-setup was not working for me here.
Thank you again.
