I've been trying to set up my internet connection and router with Ubuntu 12.04 and I've been having some issues. I am currently trying to connect directly through my modem using the PPPoE username and password provided by my ISP. I ran
sudo pppoeconf and input my information but was still unable to connect.
Furthermore, my computer is now unable to connect to my wired network and upon startup spends about 5 minutes configuring network options before allowing 60 seconds to complete its task and eventually booting without all networks properly configured.
I am new to Ubuntu and Linux and any beginner friendly help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I am still unable to connect to the internet and I've grown to accept that Ubuntu won't successfully interface with my Japanese modem, but I was wondering if there was any way to avoid the 'configuring networks' delay on boot that I have been experiencing.
