YOU Broadband must have given you a "device" which has two ports.

At the least, you must provide what your YOU device look like.

1. One port terminates the cable coming from YOU and another port must
an ethernet RJ45 port which connects to your desktop with an CAT 5/6
ethernet cable.   A snapshot of the same posted on
<http://imagebin.com> will help a lot to confirm what you are dealing

2. For MS Windows they must have given you a PPoE client.   A
screenshot of the Windows UI  posted on imagebin.com would also help.

3. With the above information from the Windows client, you can
configure the same from the NetworkManager UI under DSL click on "Add"
and you will get another UI window with several tabs.  Main tab has
the userid/password which would be the same as that in Windows.  Under
PPP tab you will have to select the items that are enabled in your
Windows client.  This is for KDE.  In GNOME NetworkManager applet
things may be laid a bit differently.

You may have to experiment with a few settings before you can
successfully connect.   I leave that as an exercise for you to learn
networking skills.
