Open the terminal from applications and type

sudo pppoeconf

Your modem should be switched on during this procedure.
It will ask a list of questions. The defaults worked fine with me. So just keep pressing enter.

It will then ask your user ID and Password. Type them in and finish configuring. Once done you will be connected to the internet.

It worked fine for me. Hope the same for you as well.

Good luck.
