I have eth0 connected to my adsl router and eth1 to my local network.
I configured my adsl with pppoeconf, logs shows me I am connected, and
ifconfig gives me ppp0 address too.

I you use a router to connect over dsl, this router will do the pppoe
connection for you. On your computer you only have to activate dhcp
(usually) or static ip via ethernet.

remove the pppoe package completly (including startscripts + config)


computer --> via "normal" ethernet  -->  router -->  pppoe --> isp

That is definitely the easiest way, but I for one would like to know how
to do it the "difficult" way.  The easy road is not always open.

Then why are you connecting through the router? How about:

ISP --> Eth0 -- Eth1 --> router --> home lan

This way, your computer with Eth0 and Eth1 connects to your ISP via ppp0 and Eth1 is on your home lan. You can then use the router as a switch or a router. But you will need to do dns masquarading in your computer connecting to your ISP.
