unable to connect to internet
I installed, compiled and booted kernel 2.6.9 and now I can't connect to the internet. My connection is ADSL from a laptop with no router or anything too fancy. I compiled pppoe in the kernel (tried compiling in and as module) and the network card also as module. The connection is configured with pppoeconf with no errors, but no connection either. I don't know what the problem could be.
ifconfig only shows eth0 and lo but it should also show ppp0
I have no problems with kernel 2.4.27 only 2.6 kernels.
