Ah, right. pppoeconfig is for a setup like mine - I have an Alcatel
SpeedTouch Home, and run the PPPoE software on my Debian firewall

If your Zyair thing runs the PPPoE bit, you almost certainly want to
configure the network card connected to the Zyair thing as "dhcp", and
it should (in theory) just work.

This stanza in /etc/network/inferfaces should be close to right:

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

Replace `eth0' with the right Ethernet interface for your setup. :)
