Talking Mandrake 8.1 and ADSL


I'm running Mandrake 8.1, and I'm trying to connect to my Direct TV DSL internet. This uses an ADSL gateway, which with NT you can hard code the IP address and it connects to the internet without any additional software. Mandrake cannot find the gateway or the internet. I called Direct TV and they said it should connect with the hard coded IP, but it is not. I can ping 127.0.0.1, and I also have a NIC for the internel network with I can ping everybody inside the network. I should be able to "ping the gateway" as well, but Linux cannot see the gateway at all. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I have Direct TV DSL (formally Telocity) and I have no problems. M DSL modem assigns my static IP address via DHCP, yours does not?
Compare the output form ifconfig with all interfaces up to the output of ipconfig on Windows NT. Make sure your subnet mask, gateway and bcast addresses are the same. Also check your routes, make sure your default is the external interface.

Code:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
dsl-216-227-XX- *               255.255.255.252 U     0      0        0 eth0
localnet        *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 eth1
loopback        *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
default         dsl-216-227-XX- 0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

Thanks man, that actually helped. I didn't know there was a default adapter. When I tried to ping the gateway it was pinging with the internal IP address which I just noticed this morning. I wan't sure how to change the eth1 to the default adapter so I switched IP's and Subnet's on the two adapters and it worked. Thanks for the tip.

And for the static IP. If you call Telocity's tech support they will give you the DNS numbers and the gateway to use as a static IP. You can probably just figure this out anyway with the ifconfig, and just hardcode it. They don't care, actually they told me that they give you a static IP and they don't care what you do with it.

For future reference:
Code:
route add default eth1
