Is your ADSL modem connected via usb, or via an ethernet cable? Which kind of modem is it?

Also, check out this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/interne...odems-adsl-usb

Hello, when the hardwere was detected properly, you only have to start a ppp connection, tis should be very similar to a modem connection. For instance KPPP is such a tool for this...
Maybe this helps a little bit.
