I agree.  PPPoE is not this user's problem.

I'm not sure what's going wrong here.  If nobody else has any bright ideas, I 
can boot a Kubuntu CD on my laptop and try to play with it.  I can set up a 
similar environment with a choice between a wireless router and an ethernet 
cable.  I wound up pulling Linux back off that laptop though (unfriendly 
hardware), so it will take some tinkering to set this up.  Else I would have 
just gone ahead and done it, and shared the results, rather than writing 
about what is possible.
