Yes, I have my username and password... I had everything working on a
windows box until that box went kaput.

Now I've been trying to get it to work on Linux, first unsuccessfully with
a LEAF distro, and now with this debian distro, I am using it's packaged
pppoe which seems to be a packaged roaring penguin.

Right now it seems like a routing problem or something, of course since my
connection isnt responding to anything, I'm nto sure whats up.  "route -n"
produces nothing for me. ifconfig -a does produce something, I seem to
display some rx and tx bytes, but I dunno.. I'm pretty much a clueless
newbie here.

Any additional suggestions?
