Hi, I'm using Fedora 19 with Gnome Shell and I tried to setup a PPPOE connection using my computer and my DSL modem and noticed the PPPOE configurations were missing from Gnome Shell network manager.

What happened to them? are they gone for good??? this seems to be a rather big loss of functionality :S.

Some of the NetworkManager plugins got split into separate packages for the GNOME components, like NetworkManager-foo and NetworkManager-foo-gnome.

Try this:

yum install NetworkManager-pptp-gnome

The problem is that the upgrade path wasn't quite correct, so users updating would not receive the new -gnome packages.

Thank you for your solution. I'll have to try connecting to my DSL connection to see if everything is OK but at least now I found out where to do this in Gnome-Shell.

I find it very confusing that it is under VPN (maybe technically you are running a VPN through the phone lines, but that is very confusing to the end-user...).

PPTP is not PPPoE. You need to run nm-connection-editor from the command line and then add a DSL connection. Don't ask me why the list of connection types you get in control-centre .. network .. add connection doesn't include DSL.
