Connection Problem

I have problem with Ubuntu 9.04. I ordered CD and it shipped to my address, and I installed it.
I have ADSL Connection,so i opened Terminal and type "sudo pppoeconf" and i installed connection.Internet was working.I updated my system and I had to restart computer.After restart,internet wasn't working.

Can anyone tell me what is the problem?

Did you try pppoeconf again after the update and restart? If so, did it give you any error messages? You might reboot again and right after your system comes up, go to a terminal and type
dmesg | less
and see if there are any error messages there from the reboot process that look related to the connection failure. That might provide a clue....

The "sudo ppoeconf" in a terminal is for setting up the connection. Once the connection is set up correctly, and you seem to have completed that step, you should use, in a terminal, "sudo pon dsl-provider" to start subsequent connections and "sudo poff dsl-provider" to stop those connections.

You can read the details in the Ubuntu help section on "PPPoE Modems" by clicking on the white question mark in the blue circle.
