I have recently subscribed to my local DSL service. However, I have done pretty much as far as my capability reaches (I'm a SuSE Linux Newb), with regards to hooking up my box to the net. I have a Shuttle mobo, mod. AN35N-Ultra, w/ nForce 2 chipset, 10/100 ethernet on-board LAN. Linux OS I'm using is Suse 9.0.
I know my router is working fine, and my computer recognizes the on-board LAN, but I can't hook-up to the damn 'net. The DSL service provider doesn't support Linux, so they can't help me in the instillation, but they said that ANY OS/platform should be able to dial-in. I've tried YaST install for my DSL service and net-card config, so far, the computer recognizes that I have a distinct ethernet card specific to the system, but YaST installer doesn't recognize it. Also, YaST can't seem to know if I am connected or whatever; it can't tell me if I'm even able to connect. Kinternet is not working for me.
Also, the DSL providers said that I need to hook-up to the net first, so that I could get my login and pass setup, but again, YaST installation asks for a login and pass to hook-up the DSL. So I am in a friggin' catch-22; need to login to the service to setup DSL account, but because of software needing login and pass to hook-up to the service...arrgh!
So any input upon this quandary I am having would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
