I have a wired modem connection to ADSL under Ubuntu 10.04. Recently establishing a ppp0 connection to the internet started to take a very long time (minutes). During this time, plog shows lots of "Timeout waiting for PADO packets" and "Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery" errors. Then somehow I get through.

In a similar post, output of the following commands was requested:

cat /etc/network/interfaces & lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net & lsmod & cat /etc/resolv.conf   

So, here it is: (thanks for your help!)
