Unhappy PPPoE: Can't connect to the internet


I have just installed Fedora Core 1 and I really like it. However, I am unable to connect to the internet by PPPoE.

I have setup the account using "adsl-setup" and "adsl-start". I can also see the ip address from typing "adsl-status".

However, I just cannot connect to the internet. Can anyone help pls?

do you try to connect to the internet in normal user mode?
what do you exactly mean by connecting to the internet?
does adsl-status say its connected?
do you have a firewall installed?
how is your eth card setup?

Fedora Core1: Can't connect to the Internet with PPPoE

I have tried to log on in both root and user modes.

adsl-status says it is connected to the internet and it does show an IP address that I normally see when logging on in Windows.

I have firewall installed as a standalone machine (option 1 in "adsl-setup"). I have also set to allow WWW, FTP, TELNET as trusted services in the security settings in the Control Center.

I have also have SuSE9 installed and I have set up PPPoE as in Fedora Core 1. I can logon to the internet without any problem at all.

Would you have any idea?

FC1 is buggy with 3Com 3c905 NIC cards.

Kudzu must be disabled, otherwise the ethernet card will simply not work.


/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 kudzu off

Does anybody have any ideas how to get this to work under Slackware? I have a Thinkpad 600 and while at first rp-pppoe worked, it stopped working after I ran netconfig. I have since reinstalled Slack, but I have the same problem. When I log on through the Windows side I have no problems, but no luck in the Linux side. Are there any other threads discussing this I have missed? Thanks.

Exclamation PPPoE connection in Fedora

I had this same problem, but your post #5 gave me the clue as to where to look.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
When configuring your connection using the xdsl config utility, the setup has you give the connection a nickname.

the nickname must be set as ppp0. (last digit - numerical zero)

the reason for this is that the ifup script (which makes the connection) is looking for a config file called ifcfg-ppp0, located @ /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0

any other nickname ex.. my-dsl, creates this file as ifcfg-my-dsl, and the ifup script fails to locate your xdsl configuration.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

This setting can be changed by goint to main menu> system tools> network device control> select your ppp0 device, then press the configure button> edit the device ppp0> reset nickname to ppp0. save and close. you may need to logout or restart the system for changes to reset.

In RH9 the nickname could be anything and the connection worked. minor Fedora bug.

Hope this helps

Talking PPPoE: Thanks arthur1968

I had much the same problem with my adsl not connecting. I do have a 3C905 NIC, and after typing in the command you posted, and rebooting, the eth0 and ppp0 connections started beautifully. THANKS!
