/edit: adsl modem connects, but disconnects again after some minutes

I finally managed to install my ADSL USB modem. I can authenticate (chap), and i get a IP-address from my isp, but the weird thing is, i'm not connected to the internet. I can ping the server IP-address, but that's all. Does Someone know what i have to do? :/

fixed it allready, was my resolv.conf
But now there's something else: i'm able to connect, everything goes fine, can ping, etc. But from the moment i try to connect to a ircserver or go to a site, my connection gets interrupted, and the modem disconnects: . Does someone know what can cause this?

Roy is correct, you still need to provide username and password to the router.

Check out the following free PPPoe client software:

Roaring Penguin PPPoe

Hopefully it will work where you are in Europe, if not then
find out what the actual PPPxx protocol that is being used
for client ADSL.
