I need help in the connection adsl

I got to configure my adsl and the interface PPPoE is connected after adsl-start, but it doesn't carry her paginates in the browser, nor I get to use the net.
In the net icon the tap marks entrance and exit of packages.
In the browser it is configured to detect definitions of the proxy, but he says that I didn't get to detect.
I am Portuguese and I used these steps here to configure the net in portugal.
I only had to change the firmware and to use the tap0, instead of the tap1.
It was the only way to get connected with the servant, I already walk to try more than 2 months and only now got to connect, but I am not to get to navigate.

Thank you for the help.

Configuring a Speedtouch modem in Mandriva (or the old Mandrake) should be simple... Drivers are build in, one only needs a floppy with the firmware. So far the theory. I've tried hundreds of times, never got it to work.

Have you tried this:

Have a lot of fun

many complain for the same problem, adsl is the largest failure in the linux

Because it is true the theory is simpler than practices her even so, here in portugal, we have to use vary interfaces to get to have internet through the adsl, read this:
In PORTUGAL the service ADSL is used on PPPoE and PPPoA, and don't only remain PPPoA.

But I already got the access following the steps described in the link that I mentioned. He already appears linked after adsl-start and the outburst script it also works and I receive an IP.
The problem that appears I think provoked by the mandriva, because I don't get to carry paginate, or other scene of the net; marking that he doesn't have connection with the proxy. The mandriva is to fail with such basic scenes.
It will be that somebody could find out what is the tap, pppoe, pppd, proxy, things of this gender, because I don't have a lot of notion as this works.

thank you for your attention.
