Is anyone out there could recommend a reliable ADSL modem if they use RedHat9 and AOL for internet access.
I've been using BT voyager ADSL modem connected to a network interface card to configure RedHat9 for internet access but no chance.
I think the ADSL modem is not compatible with either RedHat9 or the ISP does not support it.
don't just use a modem. buy an adsl router with ethernet connectivity and just connect to that on a local network. this is then guarenteed to work and you ISP will have no idea, or interest, what operating systems you are running internally.
I've done just that. I got myself a LINKSYS ADSL Router but still no chance.
Fiddled with all various config files but for some reason I still can't access the internet.
The error I get is when browsing the net is 'Unable to resolve the site name'
I am happy to try another ditribution / brand new hardware.
well that sound slike you've not brought up your local ethernet connection properly, which has nothing to do with the isp or the router... what does the output of ifconfig say? how are you starting the ethernt connection? what card do you have?
why would you possibly think that? ethernet is ethernet.... there is no hardware compatability that could exist...
so what happens if you ping google.com? does the name resolve? can you even ping the router? what does your "route" command say? what is the contents of /etc/resolv.conf? are you using DHCP or static addressing?
If I ping www.google.com the answer would be host unreachable.
Yes I can ping the router
/etc/resolv.conf does not have an entry for the router bu did not think this is essential because I tried to attach the modem directly to the NIC and tried mozilla but I get the same result.
