DSL Connection in Ubuntu

         In Ubuntu 17.04 LTS, DSL connection can be done easily, by making new DSL connection from network connections menu in top right as seen below.

      which you have to give username and password (if required) and then you’ll be connected without trouble.
       When coming to Ubuntu 17.04 LTS, the same thing you can do, but you won’t be connected.. oops.!

       Okay, Here is a method to overcome such a uncomfort situation. Follow the steps one by one, (if you are a power user of linux, you can skip one or more steps based on your system configured methods, others follow all steps):

  1. As usual from the top right connections options create new DSL connection. But don’t connect.(obviously now it wont connect anyhow)
  1. Open terminal window or Ctrl+Alt+T.
  1. Type “sudo -i
  1. Enter your root password
  1. Then enter the command “pppoeconf”

  1. The process starts to detect. Then some series with questions with “Yes” or “No” will arrive. Click “Yes” for all. But not for Boottime autoconnect , asked in the last.Now you’ll be connected with internet.
  1. If you leave at this point your indicator in notification area alway shows connceted symbol. So some actions needed.
  1. In the terminal type “gedit /etc/network/interfaces
  1. In the interfaces only the following line should be there, delete all other

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

  1. Now save and close.
  1. Then in the terminal type “gedit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
  1. In this make sure managed = false
If not make managed to false. Leave other code as it is.
  1. Now restart your system once. You would probably connected to your DSL by your dsl connection created in step 1.
