why dont you configure your modem/router as PPPOE dialing mode.
It will auto dial when modem/router Power on. then you have to connect to this device through LAN/ WLAN.
The advantage of this mode is that you can connect number of systems on this LAN, this device will work as gateway.
But if you want to configure your system/ubuntu machine as gateway or taking Static IP from ISP then you have to configure your system as gatway and your router/modem will work in bridging mode.

Wireless pppoe does not work in pppoe mode. You need to change it to Bridge mode to dial a connection from a wireless system.

Bridging wireless and any other connections is still kinda broken. No support for WPA/WPA PSK security at all.
