Setup of ADSL modem connection problem


Hi all folks,

I am doing net-installing Debian 3.0 with Sarge-CD. I have been trying several days to solve my problem on Internet connection. The PC is connected to broadband via ADSL modem, dynamic IP.

The box can connect to broadband but cut off from Internet. 'ifconfig ppp0' proved connection to broadband but

# ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com
impossible.

Any folk on the forum can shed me some light. TIA

B.R.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

I installed a Debian (testing/unstable-3.0) box with 'sarge net-install' CD. The installation was successfully. Since this is a 'testing/unstable' version there are still some problems. I am going to remove it soon and reinstall it the second time

B.R.

Some tips

Hi!

If you cannot ping a host then try some of these (commands included with -...-):

1) Can you ping your own Ethernetcard/IP address?
2) Look at your routing table with -route-. There must be a default entry
3) Look at your firewall with -iptables -L-. It should be wide open until you have solved your problem... (every chain should have accept status)
4) have you tried to look if the hostname resolution works? Try -dig www.yahoo.com- or -host www.yahoo.com-
5) if not then look at your /etc/resolv.conf. There should be the entries of your provider DNS servers in it (you can see them when you look at /var/log/messages during connecting with ppp/pppoe.

Hope that helps.
