Problems setting up an ADSL conection


Hello All.

Im trying to configure an ADSL conection using rp-pppoe in a Slackware Linux 10.0, but when I use adsl-start i get the following:

................TIMED OUT
/usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 194: 2384 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1

I think that the problem is in the configuration of the Ethernet card, because the configuration files (pap-secrets, resolv.conf etc., seems to be ok)
to be sure that the drive will be working I built a kernel (2.4.29) with suport for the driver compiled within (the driver name is 8139too)
With this, I think that the kernel is detecting the device, because when i do a:

# dmesg | grep eth0

I get the following:

eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xc4800000, 00:08:a1:63:59:7b, IRQ 11
eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8100B/8139D'
eth0: link up, 10Mbps, half-duplex, lpa 0x0000

If I do an "ifconfig eth0 up" and a "ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1 up" I get no output
and the following is the output of "ifconfig"

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:63:59:7B
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

And Here is the output of lspci

01:06.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)



My problem is that i can't make an idea of what is going wrong, so i cant no define a problem and due to that is difficult for me to google for an answer.

I have looked in the Ethernet-Howto, the ADSL-howto and in some post of different forums (including some of LinuxQuestions) and nothing had worked, so I would really apreciate help

Thanks since now

At first glance I do not see anything wrong with the ethernet adapter configuration. Usually there isn't any output when commands complete successfully.

You did configure your DSL connection via the adsl-setup script?
You have verfied that pppoe.conf contains the correct information?

Ok. I just made the conection run. As you said, michaelk it was not a problem with the ethernet. the pppoe files were ok, and yes, i used adsl-setup, but the problem were that the older pppd configuration files I had for my old dial-up conection produced some problems. I fixed it editing the adsl-start script to put it in debud mode, (that is how i knew which was the problem) and then, I deleted de old files. now mi conection is runing.
I post the solution of my problem thinking that it my be useful for someone

thanks for your help, michaelk
