adsl-start.......timed out with d-link router and


Hello to all... I am shiny new but feelin the freedom after too many blue screens of death.

I cannot get an adsl connection to work: I can ping 127.0.0.1, the router and google successfully. dmesg | grep -i eth0 output is eth0 oem i 82557/i82558 10/100 ethernet, mac address, IRQ 11.

lspci shows the above nic

lsmod eepro100 19252 1
Mii 2272 0

route -n
destination Gateway Genmask Flags metric use ref Iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 u 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 u 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 uG 0 0 eth0

Netconfig is dchp.
router assigning dsl pppoe through a static ip address
/etc/resolv.config has my static ip and dns for isp in them for nameserver

partitioning setup and install were a piece of cake, but the networking is really punishing me.

Help please?

so...you can ping ip-nr's only, or can you also ping names....like "ping google.com " ?
if you can ping, the network is ok.......
must be some config-error.

if you have a modem/router ( one side adsl----other side 2 or more eth. conn. )
then you don't need pppoe ( i never needed it... )

if you can ping names, your browser should be able to work also...
if you use dhcp, you get your ip-adress from your router.

in your resolv.conf you should have the adress of your router.
mine looks like :

------------
nameserver 10.0.0.138
search lan
------------

i think that info also comes from the dhcp-request.
what prob. do you have ?

direct from the newest slacbox in Miami

Thanksfor the help egag i had to edit the resolv.conf file.

Question? is the command adls-start under root necessary with this type of connection or is it for pppoe connections without a router?

I know very little about programming. if it is not necessary to run adsl-setup then i probably had an internet connection two days ago and i reconfigured this setup 30 times before I tried to open the browser or email.

maybee im, just a little too compulsive. Thanks again

i think adsl-start is not needed with a router/modem.
your modem keeps the adsl-connection with the external ip-adress to your ISP.
your pc. is then on a subnet with internal ip-adresses and that's pure ethernet

happy times....

You only need pppoe if that is the type of service provided by your isp

if your provider uses pppoe then install the rp-pppoe package (it may already be installed) and set netconfig to "modem or no internet"

then as root run "adsl-setup"

and enter your your dns servers and your user name and password

then as root run "adsl-start"
you will get "................connected"

then your browser or email can connect as usual

run as root "adsl-stop" to disconnect

if this works I have some simple scripts to connect and disconnect as any user, provided you modify sudoers

Well, if you don't need to share Internet with other machine OR if you have 2 NICs on your comp. I would advise you to disable router on the ADSL Router/Modem. And use your Slackware machine as router instead.

Then you will need adsl-start.

To do that you need to set your ADSl Router/Modem to bridge mode.

Just confuse you further

carboncopy......what are the advantages of that ?

i think keeping you pc behind a router ( on a subnet ) is more secure,
and using bridge-mode doesn't speed-up anything.
also it's very easy to setup.

The advantages comes when you use peer2peer software like bittorrent where there is a lot a lot of simultaneous connections. this really slows down the small box (modem/router).

oh,yes ...i see....
but i think that only counts for fast internet connections.
i have " only " 125 KByte/sec ( fast enough for me .. ) and i get that bandwith with bittorrent.
( on s subnet ).

at higher speeds i can imagine the router becoming bottleneck.
