I see you didn't specify your question. You should specify what type of Vodafone modem do you have. In Indonesia, we now have as big database for tutorial (including Vodafone-bundled) installing any USB modem sold in Indonesia. – Ade Malsasa Akbar Jan 9 '14 at 6:22

Use "pppoeconf" command without double quotes in root. It will scan for every internet connection of your computer give yes when it provide dialog box and then after completing scanning restart your computer. Then , it will automatically connect to internet just click on web browser.

okay, thank you so much, I will try! – Nurul Wahyuni Dec 2 '12 at 12:48
after I do that, the output is "Sorry, I scanned 3 interfaces, but the Access Concentrator of your provider did not respond. Please check your network and modem cables. Another reason for the scan failure may also be another running pppoe process whic controls the modem". Then I restart and still cannot connect. – Nurul Wahyuni Dec 2 '12 at 13:04
