Unhappy adsl via router connection problems


Hi,

I know there are a number of treads connected with similar problems but am unable to find an answer in them.

I use a router to connect to my isp, under windows xp there is no problem but I have tried puppy 3.01 & 3.98 and can get neither to work.

The blinkies flash intermittently when I request a page or site.

I have set up the fixed ip,submask,gateway and name servers(primary and secondary).

When my adsl was first set up there was a need for a username and password but i can find no such reference in the puppy setup.

I suspect I am somehow missing the obvious, any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks

JR

Hi,

welcome to LQ!

What is the network set-up in Windows like? How does the router (modem?)
connect to the PC?


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,

I am hard wired to my router(modem), the router being directly connected to my home phone line. (Router is Zyxel Prestige P660-61).
My ISP is Telefonica, Spain.

Have even tried bypassing router and using dialup via my Conexant D110 MDC V92, this just comes up with "no dial tone", yet through windows works fine.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 9300 M740 (1.73GHz)

Any clues much appreciated

Thanks,

JR

I suppose what I'm trying to find out from you is whether
Windows required any set-up, whether the device uses PPPoE/A,
whether it serves DHCP & DNS on to the network port and so
forth. Hard-wired to me means nothing?


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,

My apologies for wasting your time, this simple system is obviously far beyond my capabilities as I haven't a clue what you are talking about.

I'll crawl back in my cave where I obviosly belong and stick with Windows.

Thanks for your effort,

JR

Please don't give up quite that easily. All I need you to do is
check your windows' network settings, really, and post the result
back, and to tell me whether you're using an ethernet-cable or
USB to connect the modem to the PC.



Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,
I am connected to the router via an Ethernet cable.
The properties of my local area connection (Broadcom 440X 10/100 Integrated Controller-recognised by Puppy) are what I believe you have requested, are as follows:

The connection uses the following items, client for Microsoft networks (RPC servive-windows locator), QoS package scheduler, AEGIS protocol-IEEE 802.1x V3.1.0.1, TCP/IP-IP address 192.168.1.10, Subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.1, Preferred DNS server 80.58.61.250, Alternate DNS server 80.58.61.254, Wins-NetBios settings, default, enable lmhosts lookup.

I found a reference to PPPoE (RFC 2516) on the information from Telefonica my ISP, it quotes values of ITV:8 and ICV:32, I also have a username and password on the same documentation.
Can find no reference to DHCP.

I hope I got it right this time,

Regards

JR

Now, that's good news, because we have something to go by,
and bad news, because I've never had to use PPPoE and would
need to spend large amounts of time. However, chances are
that someone else here had exposure to this.

I'll be moving this thread to our puppy forum in the hopes
that folks there know how to do it. Best of luck!



Cheers
Tink

What you can do by is give the similar IP address to the Linux system with similar DNS entries.
I have faced this issue myself and one solution is to make the router dial itself automatically to connect to the internet as soon as it is powered on.
In windows it is possible to create a connection.
In RH there is a command adsl-setup that can be used to set up adsl connection but that hasnt worked for me atleast.
So, if you can make router dial itself, I guess you can browse the web in linux as well.
