setup internet on command line


I would like to know how I could connect to my adsl modem/router on the command line.

The network is running on dhcp and WAP.

It's easy to connect in the gui but I would like to know how to do it on the command line.

Furthermore where can I configure this to happen automatically on boot.

The command has changed to
Code:
pppoe-setup
you need to have the rp-pppoe package installed.

Thanks for the replies. This seems to recreate a connection to my isp. My router already creates the adsl connection I just want to link to my router through the wlan using dhcp.

okay in that case you need
Code:
system-config-network-tui
but it should work out of the box as your adsl router is a dhcp server.

I tried system-config-network-tui but my wlan is not listed. It is listed in iwconfig though.

Sorry u did not mention that u are using a wireless access point, am not sure if there is an easy command line tool for that as it normally works via networkmanager which is a gui application

Thank you for trying datopdog.

Is there anyone who knows if this is possible on the command line?

Yes it is possible but u will have to edit the files, as in the above link, there is no tool to do it for you.
