I have a wired PPPOE connection (a wire comes straight from my windows and connects to CPU).

This is how I connect in WindowsXP dual boot:

enter image description here

Tried with sudo pppoeconf and put my password and username.

I tried wired connection and even DSL connection but nothing works. The funny thing was that when I try to call the internet provider they said: "If you are using Linux you must able to solve the problem by yourself".

Somewhere I read that someone edited the ppp.conf file and put in ACNAME= then something like this f10-suhar. I don't know why but it has worked for him.

sudo pppoeconf connection has been set, but it keeps on opening a window with my username & password and asks to connect, but nothing connects.

Did you try to create it using Network Manager? See this answer: askubuntu.com/a/153030/114818 –  Aditya Apr 30 '13 at 13:53

no ppp.conf file is there in etc/ppp but can other files are there –  pankaj Apr 30 '13 at 14:26
    
@Aditya i have PPPoE as mentioned above i tried "sudo pppoeconf" got connected but could not disconnect using poff. Also, after reboot i could not connect directly. "pon dsl-provider" also failed, ping 8.8.8.8 showed , "network was unreachable" So i tried "sudo pppoeconf" again n i was connected. Evey time i have to go through these clinches to connect. Any solution? –  pankaj May 5 '13 at 12:09
    
the key was sudo pppoeconf , but its not a good way to connect, . connection often fails –  pankaj May 18 '13 at 9:51
