DSL upgrade issues
 
I just upgraded my computer to 9.10 and now I'm having trouble with
connecting to the internet using my Ethernet connected DSL modem

I searched around and found one possible solution by using sudo
pppoeconfig. This sort of works. Pidgin/Empathy will no longer connect
to their servers. The network icon also shows I'm not connected.
Ubuntu One shows I'm not connected.

After rebooting I also have to go through the whole thing all over again
from scratch.

Very, very irritating.

Any help solving this would be appreciated.

Keith

Have you tried dhclient from the command promt? or set eth0 to auto
connect in network settings.
What does ifconfig say?
