    When it says "Link is down" it means you're in offline modus. You need to start the connection again by issuing the command "adsl-start".

    Good luck

    "(can't read pppoe PID file /var/run/pppoe.conf-adsl.pi d.pppoe) "

    The PID file holds the process ID for pppoe, if pppoe isn't running there should be no PID file to read.
