I'm not so sure but it seem that we both connect to the Internet the same way, i have an Ethernet card that connects to a dsl modem.
In order to get my connection working i did the following:
for the first question you can write any name you'd like to give to your computer, for the second question just say localdomain. for the third question choose DHCP, after that just say OK to the following questions.
if you see something like this then everything is going well:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:80:BA:4E:A6:96
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
as long as you see your HWaddr line you'll be ok
3.After that do
4.answer the questions according to you situation.
For the first question just enter the user name you use to connect to the internet in Windows (i.e email@example.com
4b. for the second question answer either eth0 if that is the ethernet card you use to connect to the internet with. In my case since i only have one ethernet card i use eth0.
4c. for the third question just hit enter
4d. for the fifth question answer server in lower case
4f. it now will ask for the password you use to connect to the internet.
4g. if you got a firewall already say 0 to the following, if not say 1
4h. no just say yes or y
In order to start your connection do
to stop a connection do
start your connection (i.e adsl-start) and after it says connected do
to check if you got an ip, if you see something like this you are in the right track:
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:225.98.456.26 P-t-P:95.959.959.595 Mask:250.250.250.250
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1492 Metric:1
The numbers you might see will not be the same as mine.
Now try to ping a site to see if it's working
ping -c 4 yahoo.com
after you ping yahoo if you see something like this then you can now browse the net:
