There are many good articles on how to get your DSL set up with PPPoE.
Since writing this article, the FreeBSD Handbook
covers this topic rather well so perhaps you should read that first.
These links appear to work for most people. However, I would never get logged on
properly, and was continually plagued by a Attempting to Redial message by the pppd.
The solution was simple. In addition to using the Sympatico solution, I added
ifconfig_rl0="inet 0.0.0.0 mtu 1492"
to the /etc/rc.conf file solved everything. (where rl0 was my NIC)
You may or may not experience a message from the kernel saying:
module_register: module netgraph already exists!
linker_file_sysinit "netgraph.ko" failed to register! 17
but everything should work without a problem anyway.
