OK. Then how do I get ppp0 into the routing table
Thanks for the help.
I am following several HOWTOs regarding getting PPPoE to work with an Alcatel USB modem.
All of them recommend that I set the default route as follows
route add default ppp0
This command fails for me. What do I need to do to get ppp0 into the routing table as the default route. Do I need to successfully connect first. This is sounding like a catch-22.
