Hello. I've just started using SBC Yahoo DSL with my RedHat 9 OS and
I'm finding the DSL connection to be (almost always) somewhere between
excruciatingly slow and comatose. My browser (mozilla) might work
fine for 10 minutes or so, but then it will freeze in the process of
resolving a host or transferring data. I try ping and dig and get
this sort of response:
; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> support.sbcglobal.net
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
(So yes, I have problems with lynx also.)
Has anyone any idea why this might happen? Any suggestions about how
to fix it, either each time it happens or once and for all? SBC
customer support tells me that it takes 10 days to optimize the
connection, but "no servers could be reached" doesn't sound to me like
an optimization problem.
I've tried editing resolve.conf and the various ifcfg-eth0/ppp files.
My changes last for a while and then the files revert to their
original form (on boot, maybe).
About resolve.conf: am I stuck with SBC's nameservers, or could I
experiment with some other ones?
Thanks in advance. I'm pretty much a newbie, so feel free to spell
out exactly what commands I should be using....
I am trying to setup my SBC Yahoo DSL with Redhat 9 but all I can do is ping google.com and also ping 188.8.131.52 . I am using a speedstream 5100 ADSL modem. I can reach the modem configuration page thorough my browser and connect to the internet.
I tried the Internet Configuration Wizard but don't know how to set it up. When I try to open a webpage in a browser, Mozilla, Konqueror or Lynx I get a timed out error.
I am also a Newbie, If you could explain step by step how you got your SBC Yahoo DSL connection working under RedHat Linux, I would very much appreciate your help.
