DLink DSL-302G ADSL Modem & Linux


Hi All, I am trying to setup RedHat 9 as a internet gateway for my network but cant get my ADSL connection to work. I have 2 network interfaces installed in my system, eth0 which connects network and eth1 which connects to a Dlink DSL-302G ADSL Modem. My username and password is locked into this modem so iam unsure when I run adsl-setup in redhat weather i have to enter these details. On my ISP website it says its a bridge connection which i have know idea what it means. Has anyone had success with this modem and linux, if so how?

Hi Peter,

The D-Link DSL-302G connection to your first network card is considered the network link instead of ADSL link. Assign any IP address that is within the range (they suggest between 10.1.1.3 to 10.1.1.32), set the gateway and DNS server to your DSL-302G IP address and there you go

I have no problem using that configuration with any Linux machine that I have (the latest being Mandrake 10.0 and FC2).

Good luck!

Dwi

I have tried to find out form supplier and ISP but they will only talk windows prob's and all of the howto's don't get this specific.

hi 'more input',

based on my limited knowledge of linux i might see the following possibilities:
1. the ip address assigned by your isp (xxx.xxx.xxx.188) is used for your PPPoE and the other interface of the NB1400 will be free for you to assign.
2. in case the other interface )ethernet) has preset ip address, you can try connecting directly from your computer to the ethernet interface and sniff the transmitted package using 'arp' command. Normally if the device is connected directly and it has assigned ip address, the mac address will be captured by your computer's network interface arp-cache. This will be shown using the 'arp' command above. Once you know the ethernet's ip address (and normally is 192.168.x.x), then you can assign your computer's ip address with the ip address in the same range and subnets (normally 255.255.255.0)

Good luck!
