help plz! cannot seem to stay connected


I am not sure what is wrong but my pppoe adsl connection seems to be reconnecting constantly. I dont have this problem in windows. I am using rpppoe in redhat 7.3. My connection seems to be renewing itself automatically for some reason. Any ideas?

try this ...


tail -f /var/log/messages


then you will see the messages as they are written to the file

if you want more verbose messages put debug in the config file.

When you installed RP PPPOE, there was an option to configure the idle timeout. If you set that to 0, automatic idle disconnects shouldn't happen.

that's the same thing,

but is it disconnecting only when you are idle or all the time.

what I did with mine was put a command in rc.local like this..

ping -i 30 111.111.111.111 > /dev/null &


using your isps gateway server ip instead of 111.111.111.111

well I had a problem and had to re-install. Last time I made the ppp0 interface in kde under internet configuration. How can I create the ppp0 interface from the shell? I tried running adsl-setup but it doesnt craete it nor does it create a pppoe.conf file.
