udev and ethernet connections

I think what may be happening over here is the network gets set up during boot up here including firewall and pppoe and then udev takes the whole connection down. In order to get out to the internet I've got to run dhcpcd eth0 and pon dsl-provider once I sudo into root account. I originally configured ppoe to bring the connection up at boot time but having things broken down this way by udev does offer some security advantages if I walk away from the computer and forget about it once logged in. What needs to be changed in udev so as to not break the connection? Also, another possibility might be to simply not try to connect to any network at boot up and have a user with sufficient privileges bring up the internet after login. How could that type of configuration be arranged?
