Emerson, your last two posts reveal that you do not understand. That being the case, please resist offering bad advice.


Timoshenko, you are trying to configure your computer as a DSL modem, but the external DSL modem is the DSL modem. What you want to do is connect to it. Therefore, you would configure SUSE for connecting to a LAN. The DSL modem is a device on the "LAN" and once you connect to it, things should work. I hope that makes sense.

Yes. You are correct. I do not understand how his connection works, thus cannot help and will shut up.
And please read post #8 before proceeding with your good advice.

Please excuse my ignorance but all I know about my modem is that it is a black box with named LED's. As to whether it is in any mode at all I do not know.

OK, the black box with LEDs is an external modem.

1. What Linux distribution are you using? (SUSE, Fedora, etc.)
2. What type of cable connects your computer to the modem? (Ethernet? USB?)
