I am having a problem connecting to wired connection from router. I used to have 11.10 where I tried to establish DSL connection. I tried it doing through the terminal using some pppoeconf commands.

When I reboot my system, under the Ubuntu loading sign, I saw messages like configuring network; wait 60 seconds more for connection, etc.

Then after 2-3 minutes, Ubuntu home screen appears. When I tried to connect with my wired connection, it always says disconnected even if there is a wired connection.

Then I went to network and tried to connect from there, but I was unable to do so. The wired connection button turns off.

This problem didn't get solved and I also couldn't find a way to undo the settings done from the terminal, so I formatted 11.10 and installed 12.04 but still, the same problem arose.
