This is a very much an India-specific topic. My apologies if I had posted this wrongly in this forum.
I recently uninstalled Fedora Core 3 and installed XandrOS 3.0.1 Open Circulation Edition - to entice my Dad to switch over to Linux. I found the distro really wonderful but for one nagging problem.
I have BSNL broadband Internet connection and I could not configure it in XandrOS. But I had successfully configured the same in Fedora Core 3. What am I doing wrong here? Any ideas from XandrOS users?
All I did was to create a new "PPP-over-Ethernet" connection and during the process, XandrOS correctly detected my RealTek Ethernet Card too. I supplied my Login and Password and when I try to Connect, I only get a "Connection Failed" dialog popping up. Nothing wrong with the Service Provider as I am able to connect through my Win2K (I have dual boot of XandrOS and Win2K).
Also, while booting up, XandrOS says "Bringing up eth0 Interface (pending)". Does it have anything to do with the failure?
Do ifconfig from a console and you should have eth0 listed. If it's not listed then there is a problem with the loading of the driver. You would then need to check your log files - /var/log/messages or syslog as root. The configuration for the network interfaces will be in /etc/network/interfaces.
First make the connection wizard and then go to connect to the Internet and then properties> protocol and hardware> PPP stettings > Authentication and then select chap Authemtication and you would be able to run your Bnsl broadband on your xandros machine.
