I have recently switched from dialup to cable net. The service provider have configured my connection for Windows XP Prof but I have no idea that how to connect the internet using the same connection. What he had done in windows is as fellows:
He has established a local connection to its own network by assigning me a static IP address and the subnet mask.i.e.,
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Then he went to start -> setting -> network connections -> new connection wizard -> connect to the internet -> setup my connection manually -> connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password.
After giving the user name and password, he instructed me to first start the local area network connection as mentioned in step#1 and then run this connection.
This way I could connect to the internet but have no idea that how I could implement all this in fedora 7
. Please Help!
