I have been trying for the past couple of days to set up my 330 modem by with no luck. I have searched the web & forums here but still no ADSL connection.
I have power to the modem ( two green eyes!!!!) but I have no idea how to connect or if even I missed installing some package (pppd ppp0a pppoe ???)
Can anyone out there help, I hate using Win to connect as it means I have little use for Linux

hhmm interesting. are you using the Thomson's driver for the Alcatel or the one with the speedtouchconf? can you go back to your default settings & then try with the SpeedTouchconf?
are you putting the right VPI & VCI settings?
you will find out if the modem is working when you run the SpeedTouchconf script & it will make your modem off & then on again. if the modem's light start blinking & then get green, that means that the modem is installed correct.
so far with my help. now i need more information to help you further!
well maybe you should uninstal the driver with Mandrake , cuz maybe something is wrong between the 2 drivers.
i know for sure, that the non-official driver works very good & it doesn't depend on the kernel.
can you tell me what happens when you run the SpeedTouchconf tool. do you get a message that you are online?
ok i cant find the other post i read before i signed up so i'll post it here, i've tried the eciadsl files, my modem (BT Voyager older version Feb 2003) gets the line setup and gets installed ok, just wont let me browse the net, i am a no0B to *nix so go gentle :P
so after you feel out all the information what happened? did the script told you that you are online? can you post what you get on the konsole? you installed the 330 driver , right?
are the modem lights starting to blink after you run the program? i need a lil more information!
