I dont have a router, but am unaware abt "lspci, ifconfig, ifconfig -a".


I have a normal telephone line and using windows I just dial the Number provided by the service provider and get connected. I even dont use a username and password to get connected in windows.

I tried to connect through the System > Network. But I couldn't make a progress as I was clueless about Fedora.
Pls help me with this..

can you call the isp and ask how to get a linux machine on their network ?

Now you say that a number is dialed to get connected. For 'DSL' (digital subscriber line) you use lines that are pairs with your telephone lines;

excerpt from 'DSL';

DSL can be used at the same time and on the same telephone line with regular telephone, as it uses high frequency bands, while regular telephone uses low frequency.
By what you say now it looks like your are using a dial-up modem. Which is it?

Hi,

I suppose I use a dial up modem and note a DSL line. Its a normal telephone line and I connect it to telephone to make calls and plug it in laptop and connect to net ( through windows ).

I tried calling up the provider but they are even confused abt Fedora !!
