    Linux - PPPOE

    I installed Mandrake recently, but I cant seem to get the net to work.

    I am messing around with different configurations, and it connects, but I get disconnected after 2 min max every time.

    Its a vague explanation, just wanted to know if anyone has every encountered something like this, and suggestions?

    I remember doing something with PPPoE a few years ago... now the windows computer in the network takes care of it all. It isn't too difficult to set up.

    If you get disconnected, perhaps you're not connecting properly? Dirty line? Or maybe your ISP was just goofing around for a few hours.
