There's a little tool called pppoeconf that should be included on the netinst CD. Just apt-get install pppoeconf off the CD and then run it as root, answer the questions and you're set.

Demian : thank you for your post.
I already did that..here is what I get

plog give me this :

localhost pppd[891]:connect ppp1 <--> /dev/pts1/1
localhost pppd[891]:PAP authentication succeeded
localhost pppd[891]:not replacing default route to eth0
localhost pppd[891]:local IP address 200.113.46.76
localhost pppd[891]:remote IP adress 10.52.0.2
localhost pppd[891rymary DNS address 200.50.96.90
localhost pppd[891]:secondary DNS address 200.54.144.227

ifconfig ppp0 give me this:
ppp0 link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
Inet addr:200.113.46.67 P-t-P:10.52.0.2 Mask:255.255.255.255
UP Pointtopoint running noarp multicast mto:1492 metric:1
Rx Packets:72 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
Tx Packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
colisions:0 txqueuelen:3
Rx bytes:3448 (3.3KiB) Tx bytes:97(97. 0 )

OK..it looks like the connection to my isp is ok.. but when I ping www.google.com
I get unknown host
When I try apt-get update ...all I get are errors trying to connect to the debs in sources.list

Guess this is a DNS error..or what is going wrong..?? and what sugestons do you have to solve this ??

Thank you

Copter

Check the contents of /etc/resolv.conf. If there is no valid nameserver entry, add it by typing

Code:
echo "nameserver 200.50.96.90" >> /etc/resolv.conf
at the command prompt.

Looking at this it looks like that modem/router does the pppoe for you, and you shoud just be using DHCP on the client side.
