Same problem here guys,
  NM can't connect to internet through DSL connections.

I've verified that DNS resolution works, though. Ping and web surfing does not.

Interesting thing is that a simple 'pppoeconfig' brings the connection up full and working. So it is not a hardware problem.

Let me know if you need any other information to sort this out.

Congrats for the wonderful work guys!

Indeed, it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.

After running pppoeconf, you can connect to internet with "pon dsl-provider".

At Bug #432205 there is an advice to run the following commands:
sudo stop network-manager
sudo sh -c "NM_PPP_DEBUG=true NetworkManager --no-daemon"

(I killed the nm-applet before and restarted it)

and connect to internet

this is the output:

Same problem here! I used Mint 7 and everything runs, with Karic - nothing! I've made no Upgrade, I've installed Karmic new, but nothing runs with DSL. When I use the Live-CD, nothing happens, too :-(

Greetings

I managed to fix the problem by adding some PPA, I even started helping people, now after an update I'm stuck again in the same problem, and "pon" doesn't work either, are we using a beta or a final release? I really need someone to yell at right now!!!

work for me. Yes, they are still a bit buggy, but I can connect trough nm and dsl ...
