How to configure ADSL PCI Internal Broadband Modem with Suse Linux 9.2 Pro
Firslty, I apologise if this is posted somewhere else already, but I have searched and not found a great deal relating to Broadband modems. I've also read this tutorial ... but that relates to dial up. I also found this : ... but that looks even harder!!
I have just installed Suse Linux 9.2 Pro and am trying to work out how to tell it to use my ADSL PCI Internal Broadband Modem. The Windows installation exe was much easier and I just put in the values I was told to into the program. But I can't work out with Linux. I can't get it to connect and am having to reboot into Windows every time to find out answers.
During the installation, the device is seen and detected under 'networking' - that much I do know. But I cannot for the life me work out how to give it the settings it needs. For example, I've tried the 'DSL' setting in the Control Panel. But when I click on 'Great Britain' no providers appear in the list. So i try to add Force 9, but then it asks for IP addresses etc which I don't know and was not given for Windows. I then put my username in and password but of course it doesn't work because it doesn't know where to connect. The windows one had settings like 'Modulation - G.dmt', 'Wiring Selection - Line Tip/Ring', 'ADSL Head End - Alcatel Network Systems Inc', Encapsulation Mode 'PPP over ATM', Of those settings, the only one's I've found in Linux are the Encapsulation Mode and the VCI (which I've put in as 0.38 on one line but I don't even know if that's correct).
Can anyone tell me, in simple terms (I'm a total Linux noob) what to do. As in, Step 1, open X located within Y, Step 2 enter the X details in fields 1, 2 and 3 etc. How do I tell YAST (or whatever) to get the modem to use the settings needed?
I really want to get into Linux but if I have to reboot and use Windows to use the net I'll never get along.
Thanks very much
