PPPoE connection problem under Debian Testing

Currently i use openSUSE but the 6 months release cycle is starting to bug me a bit so yesterday i have tried Debian Testing daily snapshot created on 20-11-2010, using KDE desktop(i`m a KDE fun).

All goes well until i try to make a pppoe using KDE`s module network manager. I created the pppoe connection with user and password but i got 2 problems:

- after i have created the connection she doesen`t appear along with "Auto eth0" above the button manage connections
- the pppoe connection is not established (both password and username are correct)

I know that i could use pppoeconf or ceni for that matter, but i`m new to debian as i where new to openSUSE 4 years ago and i`m still learning, so please don`t tell to use them i just want to know if there`s a way to use network manager from kde 4.4.5 to establish a pppoe connection (you could name it the GUI way, no worries i like using the console as well)
Under openSUSE i have a program called qinternet that helps me with pppoe connection is there something similar under Debian ?

PS: sorry if the subject was opened somewhere else, but i did not find it to post my problem there.

You could try using Kppp. It allows all kinds of configurations.
