Service provider supply me user id and password


My internet service provider provide me user id and password. how can i use this in Linux?
I type above 3 commands into terminal window
Code:
ifconfig -a
lsmod | grep ppp
route -n
I get following out put into terminal window :-
Code:
shivcharan@shiv-Super:~$ lsmod | grep cdc_ether

shivcharan,

Thanks for that info. It was a little bit more complicated than I was expecting. It is showing 3 different ethernet interfaces. One of these might be your ADSL modem. I am going to ask for help from other people reading this thread, but first, I want to ask you whether you have any ethernet interfaces on this computer, and if so how many. Also, your ouptut got a little broken up wrt lines, so I am reposting it below with those straightened so others can read it more easily.

@anybody else reading this

We've established that the driver, cdc_ether, for this device is getting loaded automatically, so the ADSL modem is recognized. As I understand it from googling, this device (when using USB) will communicate over PPPoA (not PPPoE). So far no *ppp* modules have been loaded. But I am not certain how to interpret the output of ifconfig. There seem to be 3 ethernet devices, one with what I think is an alias (I have never worked with aliases on interfaces). I am wondering if that is perhaps the USB device masquerading as an ethernet device. Any help interpreting this is appreciated.

Here is the previously posted (post #16 ) output with newlines straightened out:

I will try. I was hoping somebody else with more experience would jump in here and help as well.

I see you have two ethernet interfaces. Are these both used for something else? If not, as stated earlier it might be easier just to use one of those for connecting to Huawei MT841.

I also note that (what I believe to be) your ethernet interfaces both have the same IP address. Are these two ethernet interfaces bridged together? If not, I would think having the same IP address would be problematic. Could you tell me what these ethernet interfaces are connected to? As I understand it, the Huawei MT841 device out-of-the-box has an IP address of 192.168.1.1. My guess is you can change that (once we can get you talking to it), but initially I think you are going to have to not have those two ethernet interfaces using the 192.168.1.x subnet.

Just to be sure I know what device the Huawei MT841 is, would you disconnect that device, reboot your computer and then post the output of ifconfig again. With the Huawei MT841 disconnected, I think this time you should see only eth0 and eth1.

I need to read up on interface aliases and PPPoA, so don't panic if I don't post back immediately.

When you have the ADSL modem running with MS Windows, would you post the output of the following commands (from a terminal window)?

Code:
ipconfig
route print
In WinXP you can get a terminal window: Start -> AllPrograms -> Accessories -> CommandPrompt

OK. Enough of the preliminaries. Lets try to get you connected ...

I want to get rid of possible conflicts from eth0 and eth1 (which currently have addresses on the subnet we will be using for your ADSL modem). So:

Code:
sudo ifconfig eth0 down
sudo ifconfig eth1 down
And I want to make sure the existing default routes don't get in the way, so let's get rid of them. Same thing for the routes for the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet, because that is what you are going to be using for your ADSL modem. Keep giving the following commands (individually) until they (both) start giving you errors.

Code:
sudo route del default
sudo route del -net 192.168.1.0/24
Now I'm going to basically follow the instuctions you linked to earler, making changes for your different setup and using the same IP address you have with MS Windows. Type the following:

Code:
sudo ifconfig eth2 192.168.1.10
sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1
You will then need to add addresses to the /etc/resolv.conf file. Your reference page describes it this way:

Quote:
4. Enter the address of some DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf. These DNS adresses are provided on BSNL's instruction manual.
Code:
 $ sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
The entry will be of type nameserver 61.1.96.71, where the IP will be the one provided in your BSNL Broadband instruction manual.
Make sure you get the address(es) from the manual. Don't use 61.1.96.71 (unless that is what the manual says) ... that address is just an example. If you prefer, you can get the DNS address from your MS Windows software instead of from the manual. If you click the network icon (looks like two terminals) in the (MS) system tray, one of the tabs will list DNS addresses (probably 2 of them).

If you are not familiar with or don't like the vi editor, you can use a different editor. For example, to use gedit, type sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf

At this point, I hope you can talk to the ADSL modem. Quoting again from your reference:

Code:
5. Access the router's management interface via a browser by
       typing the address 192.168.1.1 . The admin username/password is
       admin/admin
   
     * Set the connection type to `PPPoE'. On my MT882 box, this comes
       under `WAN Settings'
     * Enter your user name and password (username is of the form
       xyz@dataone)
     * Reset the router. It will take 2-3 minutes for the box to come
       up again
I am not sure how in this process the appropriate ppp modules are supposed to get loaded (including pppoe or pppoatm). We might have to visit that issue next time.

If you are unable access your modem through a browser as described above, see if you can at least ping it:

Code:
ping 192.168.1.1
A successfull outcome will look something like this

Code:
user@box:~$ ping 192.168.1.1
PING 192.168.1.3 (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.801 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.888 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.862 ms
This will go on forever until you stop it with Ctl-C.

EDIT: You probably don't have to actually enter any settings on the ADSL modem since you have already set it up with MS Windows. But at least make sure you can get it to display in a browser.

Sorry for late response;
I fallow all your given steps.
I successfully ping 192.168.1.10 but fail to ping 192.168.1.1 and also fail to connect to internet.

You aren't running a firewall are you? (By default, Ubuntu does not use one.)

Please post the output of:

Code:
ifconfig eth2
route -n
Just to make sure your ADSL modem responds to pings, would you try pinging 192.168.1.1 from MS Windows? It works just like the Linux command except output stops after 4 lines.

The routing table is OK and the interface is up and has the correct address. However, I noticed that no packets were transmitted, but there were a number of errors:

Code:
TX packets:0 errors:68 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
I'm hoping there are some error messages that give a clue about this. I am not sure how experienced you are, but if you feel comfortable doing so, look through /var/log/kernel.log for error messages that might help. I suggest you ping 192.168.1.1 first so that new error messages will be at the end of the log. Post anything you find that looks interesting.

If you aren't comfortable doing that, ping 192.168.1.1, and then post the output of

Code:
tail -n 20 /var/log/kernel.log

shivcharan,

I don't know what is wrong. I have reread the readme file in the zip file you posted for download, and it definitely sounds like we should be able to ping your modem at this point. Maybe the cdc_ether driver is buggy. The CD had a patch for the driver in the 2.4 kernel, but I doubt that would work with the 2.6 kernel. But maybe something still needs to be patched.

I have been on the manufacturer's site and it is not particularly friendly. They won't give out information to "just anybody" (like me!). Maybe you should contact your ISP to try to get more up-to-date information than what was on the CD. (The readme file was dated August 2004!) If they want to know what kernel you are running, you can get that info from

Code:
uname -r
You could also take techwatcher's advice and try Mepis. I don't hold out a lot of hope for that since Ubuntu seems to be detecting the device fine and presumably Mepis is running essentially the same kernel code. But who knows? Maybe it would work.

Once again I ask whether you have considered using this ADSL modem from an ethernet port. My understanding is it can use either USB or ethernet, and you have two ethernet connections on your computer. And that page you linked to indicates this has been successfully used with ethernet. I have not seen any report of anybody successfully using it with Linux using USB.
