Telstra Clear BroadBand in Slackware

Enter details into netconfig command. Also edit addresses in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

This does not set up routing however. Use
route add default gw <gateway>
Now everything should work until you reboot.

To make the gateway permanent, you will need to add that line to rc.d - since rc.inet1 contained code that is supposed to make this happen anyway, I edited the top of the file to remove the case statements on the variable assignments.
