Redhat 7.3 and ADSL routing to home network, help required.


I have a system running redhat 7.3 and 4 other pc's with windows xp on. Currently one of the XP machines is running ICS with the alcatel speedtouch modem on an ADSL line. Basically what I want to do is move the ADSL line over to the linux system and still allow all the other pc's access to the internet.

I've managed to install the modem and obtain an IP from the ISP, but no data transfer. I tested it with the wget command, could that just mean a dns problem?

I don't even know where to start with setting up the linux system as an internet gateway, could anyone point me in the right direction?

Currently it is only running samba and half-life dedicated server.

Thanks in advance,

Daniel Head

who is your service provider?, and why kind of DSL service is it?, is it PPPoE, for example?

if you want to do what you're saying, you should obviously know that you need 2 ethernet cards in your Linux box, so that one card is connected to the modem and the other to the Hub...ohhh wait a second, I just realized you have that ugly green DSL modem that looks like a fish, and that is, unfortunately a USB modem, ok, then never mind about the two ethernet cards.
Okay then, just answer my first three questions, and we'll go from there.

Thanks for your responses.

zLinuxz, I have RADSL supplied by BT Openworld, and will hopefully be changing to Nildram in the new year. It is PPPoE.

2 other points, I am looking at upgrading to redhat 8, I already have the first 2 cd's, and issues regarding that? Also, I am thinking of getting a PCI DSL card, it says it is fully "linux ready", are there any potential problems regarding that?

Thanks a lot,

Daniel head

Danners, you should make sure to get a Linux compatible Ethernet card.
And yeah, you can upgrade to 8.0 if you want,
