Default netcfg pppoe 'error sending pppoe packet: Network is down'

Hi

if I run (as root, there anyway still is no user) 'netcfg pppoe' I get 'error sending/receiving pppoe packet: Network is down'.
I never set up a wired pppoe connection manually before.

Cheers!

Ralf

PS: I've seen that there are 2 entries to edit and one might or might not be a typo. Perhaps I'm missing much more .

# If you are using rp-pppoe on a physically-inaccessible host, set

# to connect forever after pppoe-start is called. Otherwise, it will
# give out after CONNECT_TIMEOUT seconds and will not attempt to
# connect again, making it impossible to reach.

# Do you want to use synchronous PPP? "yes" or "no". "yes" is much

SYNCHRONOUS=no

# Do you want to clamp the MSS? Here's how to decide:
# - If you have only a SINGLE computer connected to the DSL modem, choose
# "no".
# - If you have a computer acting as a gateway for a LAN, choose "1412".
# The setting of 1412 is safe for either setup, but uses slightly more
# CPU power.

# OVERRIDE_PPPD_COMMAND="pppd call dsl"

# If you want pppoe-connect to exit when connection drops:
