comment Setting up a PPPoE internet connection in Ubuntu 12.04
I don't seem to be able to delete the one wired connection but I changed the settings on the DSL connection but I was unable to establish the DSL connection even after rebooting. It asks for DSL authentication and the password and username my ISP provided aren't working.

comment Setting up a PPPoE internet connection in Ubuntu 12.04
Thanks David, I followed those instructions and my system now recognizes the modem; however, I still can't connect to the internet. Should I try adding my PPPoE information to the wired network "ifupdown(eth0)"? Nevermind, it seems I can't edit that connection. Any advice on how to proceed?

I clicked the Network tab and found no DSL connections to edit so I created one an filled in the PPPoE information provides by my ISP. After saving the connection, however, my computer still does not recognize the presence of my LAN cable and I am unable to connect to the internet.

I went to System Settings > Network and when I click wired network it says unmanaged and gives me a hardware address.

Also, I'm in Japan so my internet service is a little strange. Internet access and a modem is provided by one company while my actual ISP that provided me with a PPPoE username and password is a completely differeny entity. I don't know much about computers, but from what I understand I need to set up the PPPoE information on my PC and have internet working straight from the modem before I can setup my router.

My internet connection is fiber optic and since I ran sudo pppoeconf in the terminal, my computer hasn't been able to recognize the LAN cable from my modem.
