first we need to know what NIC you have, run the command 'lspci' as root and post the output.

problem : " Autoconfiguration IP Address. . . : 169.254.164.114 "

your windows machine has an invalid IP.
because it couldn't reach a DHCP server.

dont see how your windows can connect from those settings.. no proper IP set and no gateway... how are you getting somewhere.

try 'modprobe e100' then 'ifconfig eth0 up'. do either of these give errors or output? if so copy and paste it.

if not then they should have worked. then look with your GUI for your PPPoE tool to connect.

are you just connecting through your NIC and to a cable or dsl modem? try running the pppoe configuration/setup tool again and try connecting again.

Hi Nadroj,

When I have seen your Reply, I was very happy to know that there are people working hard to boost Linux Population. I think I have to contact my internet provider regarding this, which may be an expensive step.

But Now I give up, I think we are not going anywhere. I am switching back to Normal life.

Bye.

Thanks & Regards
