Sounds like a pppoe protocol connection. I believe Ubuntu comes with a gui called "network-manager" that provides a nontechincal way for users to configure their network connection.
Have a look in the menus in the panel on your desktop, or even for an "network" icon directly on the panel.

Cheers,

If you are using broadband internet with user and password required, pppoeconf command on Ubuntu will allow you configure all the settings that you need. Run the command as root and enter the information needed.

sudo pppoeconf
