Welcome to ask.fedora. Before we can properly troubleshoot your connection, we need to make sure that it's really PPPOE, because that's a protocol from the earliest days of DSL. Do you really have to log on to your ISP to use your DSL connection, or is it supposed to be always on?

Interesting; I didn't know anybody used it any more. What happens when you try to connect? Have you asked your ISP for advice or suggestions? Back when I did tech support for an ISP we used to have customers try to log on manually to find out what errors they were getting. Does your connection allow for this?
