Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have ISP who gave me username, password, and authentication type for PPoE and provide ethernet cable wire home to home for accessing internet. Now my problem is how to configure it for wired connection. I must tell you my ISP is not DSL or ADSL but ethernet as I mentioned earlier, so when i look for PPPoE setting under wired connection it isn't there but I can find that option under DSL which ask for username and password and authentication type for identifying user.

Like in windows under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center when we choose the option of Set up a new connection or network then the option of

Connect using DSL or cable that requires a user name and password 

and ther we go done in window but where does this option comes in UBUNTU.

Please help me out, what am I should I do because i tried with all the inputs under DSL also and when I connect the link never establishes so please help. It would really be appreciative.

Thanks a lot in advance.
