Creating DSL / PPPOE Connection in UBUNTU

I have internet connection (worldlink-512kbps, cable net) shared with landowner and flatmates through wireless router. I recently created a PPPOE (Point to Point Protocol Over Ethernet) dial-up connection on my laptop to use whole bandwidth during load-shedding.

Creating DSL connection in Ubuntu is extremely easy.

In ubuntu open terminal and run command:
$sudo pppoeconf

Just accept the defaults and make sure you give the right username/password for the connection.

For using the connection just created
$sudo pon dsl-provider

For stopping connection
$sudo poff

To stop all processes:
$sudo poff -a

You can check the connection log using this command
$sudo plog
