    I don't understand the question.

    When you use the ADSL modem, you get a feedback "connected", but you can't use your Web browser.

    Can you ping like that "ping"? Does the ADSL modem connection stays connected or are you getting disconnected after some time?

    Is there an option "debug mode" or "verbose" with your pppoe-setup?
