Maybe PPPoE?

Fixed, thanks!

Wow, "Network Management now supports PPPoE", that's the only thing that was holding the students from my campus to move to Linux...

Pretty late but better later than never...

I used PPPOE to connect to internet more than ten years ago, it required a little configuration (at the time, I think it was done running adsl-setup or so) but once done it was rock solid.

Wait a sec, is it able to make a PPPoE connection over Wireless?

No possible yet because we need to filter which kind of connection can be associated to each kind of network interface. Until my commit only serial interfaces could be associated to DSL connections. Adding wifi is as easy as adding a line in the source code, but I need to know for sure all the possible combinations to prevent problems.

I do not have access to any DSL connection, that is why the change took to long. I need people to test and report the problems.

If it helps, there are scripts for PPPoE over Wireless.
I write a command, in
(K)Ubuntu: "pppoeconf"
Fedora: "pppoe-setup" for configuration and then "pppoe-start" to use it

Being the one who wrote about PPPoE in the summary I have to admit it wasn´t exactly clear to me, but for specifics I'd like to point to the bug report: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=204170

Currently I am with Mageia (Cauldron, the future Mageia 2) My system is in French. I have Skrooge 0.9.93 and it is impossible to import a .gsb file contrary to what you announce. In the window and in the drop-down menu every other formats are proposed but NOT the Grisbi one. And when I try to write the path to the file and click on Open, I get an error:

[ERR-5]: L'importation du fichier « /home/fred/Documents/Comptabilité/Jacques.gsb » a échoué

then at the following screen if I click on "Historique":

[ERR-5]: L'importation du fichier « /home/fred/Documents/Comptabilité/Jacques.gsb » a échoué
[ERR-8]: Contenu XML non valable dans le fichier « /home/fred/Documents/Comptabilité/Jacques.gsb »
[ERR-4]: Mauvaise version de document Grisbi. La version doit être >= 0.6.0

No way to import a Grisbi file finally? Or a bug? Thanks.
