Do you need to dial for the connection? Is it a broadband connection with adsl modem router? I suppose it is wired. Have you checked with hardware? Is the card detected?
And can you give information on how did you connect earlier on 8.10?

If its dial up broadband you can use sudo pppoeconf.
If not then you can just set the ip address, mask, gateway, dns information and that should be it.
