set up DSL thru SWITCH - winXp connected to SWITCH too


hi, help me please...

right now I am using win XP -> switch -> DSL modem to connect to my ISP

now i want to be able to use the internet with my FEDORA too at the same time. Linux box was able to recongnize eth (i think, i pinged several times succesfully "something" prolly the modem.)

any help would be useful.... thanks and I have no idea how to use PPPoE, is there a built in programme? i cant find it anywhere.

configure the eth card with DHCP. The little black box that your ISP gave you will tell your card what to be configured to.

Yes you need to use PPPoE to connect to the internet using the same username and password. I do not use Fedora but there probably is an internet configuration GUI.

Once connected looking at the output of /sbin/ifconfig will show ppp0 interface with a valid internet interface.
