In this blog post I'll show you how to configure PPPoE dialer for DSL broadband connection. Remember to connect to the Internet using DSL connection you must have a Ethernet card which is also known as Network Interface Card or NIC and a DSL modem. Your NIC card will usually be recognized by Ubuntu Linux and will be called eth0 interface. Now to configure PPPoE dialer for DSL broadband, boot Ubuntu Linux and log into your user account. Open a terminal window and follow the following procedure.
