Unhappy Getting random timeouts using PPPoE connection only in Linux


Have been trying to figure out this problem since last week, after my ISP has changed the pppoe access concentrator at my location. Since then, I can't connect to their server using any Linux OS, while a windows machine works fine everytime without fail.

I tried contacting their customer support, but got the default answer 'Linux OS is not supported by them'. Looking at the log files, it seems to be a simple issue but I haven't been able to find out the cause.

a. Connection works fine everytime if I just reboot the machine to Windows, so it does not seem like an issue with the link. [Though I tried plugging it tightly to the port without any luck]
b. The pppd log looks similar if I try connecting using a DSL router (TP-Link TLWR740N, openwrt, pppd 2.4.5 rp-pppoe 3.8p), so it definitely seems to be some issue with pppd not being able to negotiate well with the new server.

===/etc/ppp/options===
Code:
asyncmap 0
noauth
crtscts
lock
hide-password
modem
debug
lcp-echo-interval 30
lcp-echo-failure 4
noipx
===/etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider===
Code:
noipdefault
defaultroute
replacedefaultroute
hide-password
#lcp-echo-interval 30
#lcp-echo-failure 4
noauth
persist
#mtu 1492
plugin rp-pppoe.so eth0

Tried all sorts of solutions from fiddling with ppp options to re-crimping the lan wire with a new RJ45 clip.. Can somebody please have a look at the files and suggest something?
