I've just installed Fedora 15 (with KDE) and I'm having problems creating a PPPoE connection.

First I tried using the NetworkManager.But if I create a DSL connection, it doesn't appear in the Network widget, so that I can connect to it. I've checked the option to connect at startup, and then did a reboot, but again, there was no connection.

After this I tried using pppoe-setup from Konsole. I followed all the steps, and in the end it had created the connection. The ppp0 interface was up and it had ip's assigned. I checked the connection status, and it said that the link was up, but there was no traffic in or out.

I'm pretty sure that I entered the data correctly. I've managed to configure this in Ubuntu many times with no problems.

I checked the Fedora forums and there were some people that reported similar behavior, but no one had responded to them.

somebody forgot to include pppo3 package in the release version. It was in the alpha version though. Find the package in the CD and install it.
