now you have to explain that.

either you have a wlan router in your roof that´s connected to your ISP and
your computer does 'usually' dhcp (via wireless) or that´s some kind of an
technic i haven´t heard of until now.

When you connect to that 'router' via 'normal' wireless (dhcp) then you
shouldn´t configure pppoe on your computer.

I have used the following pppoe settings (translated to your setup) for years:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto dsl-provider
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
provider dsl-provider

# added by pppoeconf
auto eth2
    iface eth2 inet manual
