I would really appreciate some advice cause I'm totally lost. Thanx a lot!
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:
- CHAP authentication succeeded - apparently you got logged in
- 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):
route del default
route add default gw 126.96.36.199
