Hi Alessia,
this problem has nothing to do with your graphical desktop environment
(aka Xfce). Rather, you should ask this question on a mailing list or
forum that belongs to your distribution (i.e. debian, ubuntu, fedora

As a short overview, configuring a dsl modem directly is either very
simple (just plug in and get an address over dhcp), but often involves
some configuration for authentication with tools like pppoe.
