A good source for information like this is the wiki, 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/.  I typed ADSL into the search box and got the 
page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ADSLPPPoE which, basically, echoes what 
Jason suggests.

Although if your internet is not working, pointing to the wiki may not 
be very helpful.... :-|
