You can configure the PPoE connection using in a terminal the pppoeconf command (run as sudo). Follow the steps and your settings will trigger the connection on. After every reboot you have to run pon dsl-provider command (as sudo) to establish the connection. Even the connection will be on, Network Manager icon (on top left side of your screen) will be as you are not connected. At least this behavior is on my computer. I can live with this.

Good luck.
