    Now I choose apt method ftp, and gives me

    >> Temporary failure resolving ftp.debian.org <<

    plog gives me:

    date time localhost pppd[1658]: CHAP authentication succeeded
    date time localhost pppd[1658]: peer from calling number 00:15:56:25:65:44 authorized

    What kind of internet connection do you have? Cable modem? DSL modem? Dial-up over a phone?

    Are you sure you need pppoe (PPP over Ethernet)? Even if your DSL provider uses it, it's probably transparent to you.

    But if you do need pppoe, notice a couple things from the log:
    1. CHAP authentication succeeded - apparently you got logged in
    2. not replacing default route to eth0 [192.168.2.1] - your default route isn't ppp0


    You can experiment with these commands (replace the IP address with the one your PPPoE link is connected to):
    Code:
    route del default
    route add default gw 213.250.19.90
