"unable to read a valid proxy configuration script"


i am not able to access internet from linux. i am using MTNL`s broadband internet facility which is working fine on windows xp. i am using a DSL-502T ADSL Router of D-Link company ver. 5.20. i also have its driver CD, it has a setup.exe file which i am unable to run in linux Enterprise server ver 4. So i want to know how to install this driver, after which i hope the problem will be solved. Before trying to install the drivers when i tried to access google from Konqueror web browser i got an error message saying "unknown host , unable to find host google.com" and in the left top corner of my screen i got a popup message saying "Unable to read a valid proxy configuration script".
Thankyou.

Dear Adish
Hi You need not to install Dlink Router(ADSL) in your Linux if u are accesing it from Network Card but if u are accesing it from USB then u have to download DLINK's compatible driver from the internet. I hope u r accessing it from Network card below are the step how to configure ur ADSL Connection in linux

1 Connect ur Dlink modem with ur Network card

2 Give IP address, Gateway IP address and DNS IPs of same series in ur linux as per u have given in ur Dlink modem by issuing this command
# netconfig
say ur dlink modem has 192.168.0.1 (Class C) ip
then give 192.168.0.2 to ur Linux machine

3. And after defining ip in ur Linux machine restart ur machine or simply issue this command

#service network restart
It'll restart linux network services

4. Then issue this command to make ADSL Dialup in ur Linux
# adsl-setup

5. follow the steps after finishing again restart the network services

6. Now issue this command to activate the adsl connection
# ifup ppp0

to deactivate it issue
# ifdown ppp0

7 Now Issue this command for making sure is ur connection working or not.
# ifconfig
or
# ifconfig ppp0

The above command will show u the ip address of ur network card(eth0 or eth1) and ip of ur ppp0 ie ether dynamic or static depend upon ur isp

Best of Luck
