Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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?
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.
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 V22.214.171.124, TCP/IP-IP address 192.168.1.10, Subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.1, Preferred DNS server 126.96.36.199, Alternate DNS server 188.8.131.52, 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.
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!
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.
