PPPoE is in my roadmap, I have some past experience, but no ISP to test it now.
Would you like to be a beta tester?

So first of all we need button in Network section on interface to Switch proto to PPPoe - so it should change :
db networks set eth0 ethernet role red hwaddr 5A:E4:97:D9:C4:6F onboot yes bootproto none
After that it should be ppp interface page.
Finnaly we need to change /etc/ppp/chap-secrets - with user name and password from ppp page
