Description of problem:
In FC5 I have been able to connect to my ISP, but in FC6 Test 3 and FC6 Pre I
haven't been able to get it connect. Instead, after using pppoe-setup and then
either /sbin/ifpu ppp0 or /sbin/adsl-start, I get this:

/sbin/adsl-start: line 216:  3203 Terminated     $CONNECT "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1

The ISP uses the pppoe protocol for connecting. It worked before and I suppose
it should still be possible for it to work.

Joonas, which version of rp-pppoe are you using? It seems you are not using 
the rp-ppoe from FC6!

Could you please try with the rp-pppoe-3.5-32.1 and please use 
system-config-network to setup your DSL. Thanks

It seems the problem had something to do with my NIC driver, because I got it
working by changing to another NIC. I don't remember the exact model of the
card, but the kernel module it uses is named r1000, which wasn't included in
Fedora Core 5 or 6. I had got the driver I copmiled myself working in FC5 but I
guess it wasn't solid enough to be used in FC6. I hope the situation will
improve at some point, but until that I can now use the another NIC.

I tested with two versions of rp-pppoe. The one that came with FC6 test3/pre and
the one I downloaded from the web site of rp-pppoe. All the versions I tried
failed similarly, but I think the problem was with my NIC. Sorry for the inaccuracy.
