    Seems People are allergic to terminal usage.
    steps to connect in bridge mode in Fedora or most NON-Debian/Ubuntu Distros are like this:
    1)In user groups add your local user's secondary groups as wheel,dip,dialout whatever.
    2)open a terminal ,login as "su" -give root password -or in case "sudo" give your password:
    3)run pppoe-setup
    follow the instructions.
    select NOT to start automatically on boot
    4)after completion ,you can start net connection by '/sbin/ifup ppp0 up" and stop by '/sbin/ifdown ppp0 down'
    Good Luck All
