Adsl


I would like to know if it's possible to use a terminal instead of net_monitor (im using mandrake 8.2) to connect?

And if it is, how can I?

Thanks

ok...you need to give a load more of information if you want some real help. Who's your company, what's your modem, what kind of dsl interface do you use to connect i.e. PPPoE.

Not that I am an expert on networking or anything, in fact, I don't know much at all about that. But with my ADSL, non usb modem, with a DHCP server, all I have to do is have my ethernet card configured, do a ifconfig up eth0 and I am on. No, getting on using any protocol, yes dhcpd, but that's just for the IP address. I open a browser, type and address, and it goes there. That's it. I am guessing this isn't the same for you. How do you do it?

well, i'm using mandrake so, to connect, I use the net_monitor. But, I don't know why but:
1- It doesn't want to connect half of the time
2- When I try to configure my connection to begin on startup, it dont work. so, I have to open the net_monitor, each time I open my session, enter root password and then it connects (half of the time).

Ok, it works but I would like to know if it is possible to use an other way than using the net_monitor because it doesn't work very well (for me). Are there other programs or command that I can use to connect?

thx
