No i don´t think so (haven´t used idle myself since i always had a flat rate).
If idle would have been set it would explain this error, that´s why i asked.
I have used pppoe several years and it has been very reliable for me.
So i suppose there are other problems in your setup (ISP).
When you get disconnected, what´s the status of the DSL-Modem?
(Usually it has some LEDs to show it´s status - it´s manual should explain them)
...and please post your /etc/network/interfaces.
