Is there any difference in speed while using USB port than pppoe ?
My isp says the speed is anywhere from 256 kbps to 2Mbps dpending upon the net traffic.
And I am using pppoe right now but wud like to test USB.
do lsusb to find wheather the usb router is recognised and open your netork-settings manager and set the ip-configuration, save and re-boot your system. now you have setup your system to use the usb port in your router, check the settings by ifconfig -a and setup pppoe as usual and go online.
Yes ! On connecting the modem to USB port I got this in lsusb:
Bus 4 Device 2: ID 1110:5c01 Analog Devices Canada, Ltd (Allied Telesyn)
Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
But , as I said earlier I don't have the static ip details.
varaahan i think you are confusing with usb interface and ppp. better understand both are different. usb interface in the router is a alternate for the ethernet interface, it cannot work as pppo-a interface which is provided in usb-adsl modems. insteda pppo-a can be configured inside the router not in the usb-port. forget about pppoa as bsnl doesn't use that meathod and pppoe is only used in bsnl and is not slower than pppoa in any means. just plugin the usb cable in your router and system and do dmesg in the terminal it will give you idea about how it is connected. now open your network-settings and see if any new ethernet interfaces has been detected. configure ip-settings for the new eth interface and re-run pppoe-setup to use the new eth inerface thats all you have done.
netconfig will not show any ethernet interface, use "ifconfig -a" to display all available network interfaces, typing ifconfig will only display working network interfaces so use -a option to show all interfaces. post also the output of dmesg command after you plugin the router cable in your system's usb port.
