    I have a Mandrake 10 (currently official, but upgrade from CE where the same
    phenom occurred).
    I use ADSL (rp-pppoe) to connect my PC (single, stand alone PC) to the
    Internet and KDE 3.2.
    I launch the connection by starting my PC (I don't leave it powered all the
    time) and afterwards issueing 'adsl-start' (as root) from a terminal
    In about 80%, I get connected within 2 seconds.
    In the rest of 20%, rp-pppoe times out, after about 1 minute, without
    establishing a connection. Repeating the 'adsl-start' command (several
    times) won't usually help. However, waiting about 30 minutes always help
    and, after a wait, I usually get connected within 2 seconds.
    I am using 750 Kb/Sec rate, and during ALL the time, my ADSL modem remains
    synced as a rock.

    How can I analyze, and solve, my connection problems?
