Great Nico.

I also just figured out my problem... actually I emailed the author (Graham
Inggs) of the PPA and he helped.
'iwconfig ib0' will show Signal Level:0 if the ib0 interface is not up,
meaning 'pon dsl-provider' won't connect.

You have to then explicity bring the ib0 interface up with
'sudo ifconfig ib0 up' before 'pon dsl-provider' will connect.

I've updated the Iburst wiki:
with all this info.

He also informs me that...
"PPPoE support for wireless devices in NetworkManager is coming...
... so hopefully we'll have this integrated with the Network Manager soon.

Now I just want to get the device to automatically connect when plugged in,
so you wan't need any scripts.
I had this working previously. Will post back with howto.
