I'm trying to get my laptop working (Slackware 8.1, kernal 2.4.18) with Verizon DSL... it is behind a router, which it seems to be able to access just fine, as it can get an IP address and it can interact with the other computers on the LAN.
The service here is not ADSL, and the PPPOE program I used did not work. When I called Verizon the first time, they linked me to http://www.chasms.com/chasms4/linux/dsllinux1.htm
, which is relatively useless as I don't have KDE and the control-panel function does not work (I assume it's KDE independent).
Unfortunately the help Verizon gives is useless... so assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
