    if you've already got your ethernet configured (netconfig) then it should already have all you need. That is if you're connecting thru a gateway hardware (another PC, a router whatever).

    or are you do you want to do PPPoE for your aDSL?
    if so try.. adsl-setup
    then adsl-start

    Have you tried both cards? Make sure that the eth that is up is the one that you are connected through
