ADSL - VPI/VCI Settings


Hi, Total Linux newbie here, SuSE9 went in like a dream, found all hardware including: Conexant PCI adsl Modem. configured and used suggested VCI/VPI setting of 0.38 for a BT line - but will not connect, it seems to be this setting that is the problem. By the way Linux seems to be hard work but I really want to give it a go, all the new jargon is very confusing, please keep it plain and simple.

I think the VCI/VPI setting you should use is mentioned in the manual of the modem.
At least it was in mine.

The vpi number is 0 ans the vci number is 38 for a bt line.

If you cant connect try a different synch bin file, all available from flashtux

hops this helps

If your entering the number into a vpi/vci field, put "0,38" without the quotes

or if asked individully then enter seperate.
