DSL Internet Connection for Mandriva Linux




I am new to Linux and do not know, practically anything about it. Last night I installed Mandriva Fre-2008 i586 Linux and tried to configure a DSL internet connection. While the network card says that I am connected, I am not getting any websites. I have given the correct DNS and IP Nos which I used with the same connection in Win XP. Can anyone help with this? Thanks - mkaithalayil

Do you connect directly to your DSL modem or through a router? If a direct connection to the router and your ISP uses PPPoE, you will need to set up a PPP client with your DSL user name and password. I usually suggest tp-pppoe as it's easy to configure and you should be able to find a Mandriva package for it. This assumes you connect via Ethernet to your modem ... USB modems can be trickier.

If you have a home router that runs DHCP, just follow ronlau9's advice. You can get a cheap home DSL router for US$40 or so and are usually nice to have.

DSL Internet Connection

To ronalu's response, my response is as follows:

Control Center > Network and Internet > Setup New Network > Choose Connection > DSL > Select Network Interface > Realtek Semiconductor Co. Ltd. TRL-8139C/8139C+ > Select Provider > India > Any > Please select Connection Protocol > tried DHCP, tried Manual TCP/IP and tried PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) > Access Settings > Account Login (user name) . Account Password . > Connection Control > selected (Allow users to Manage the Connection) > Do you want to connect to the Network > (Yes) >
Congratulations, the Network and Internet configuration is finished > After this you restart your computer to avoid any host name related problems.

The above is the step by step actions that I had taken to get connected to the Internet. I tried DHCP, Manual TCP/IP and PPPoE. I am told by the Internet Provider that the connection type is PPPoE. Does this make any sense? Your help much appreciated


Thanks - mkaithalayil

You,re provider should know what type of connection he provide you with.
In the past when I use PPPoE my settings off the ethernet card was indeed PPPoE and IP dynamic , but at that time I only use Suse and that was all what suse need to know to make connection

Hopes will help you

all the best

Hi,

Setting up PPPoE on Fedora is quite simple. Here is a straightforward software which can do it for you, having a GUI. Get the RP-PPPoE rpm from here and install it. http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/pppoe. After you install it, run "tkpppoe" from the console. Rest of the settings are as simple as they are in windows.

Hope it helps...
