You have two options for PPPoE as I understand from your question.
DSL provided by Network Manager. Just go to Edit Connections… in the Network Settings and you will see DSL on the last tab and Add the connection.
In your terminal type
sudo pppoeconf and follow the instruction and setup the connection. You can control the connection with
sudo pon and
I solved this problem by setting up a DSL Connection.
If someone looking for the PPPOe setup for Ubuntu 20.04LTS , h may not find that option in
Setting>Network as i have given a picture of my Ubuntu 20.04!
There is no option for DSL/PPPOe and i don't know why!
You can create using these commands :
nmcli con edit type pppoe con-name "interface_name"
set pppoe.username isp_provided_username
set pppoe.password isp_provided_password
Setup a manual Ethernet connection ..
Try the instructions for Mac OS-X (page 4.) for the IP address settings.
best guess on these settings for Ubuntu: (and you should enable 'Connect automatically')
