DSL connection just not working with 10.2 Slackware...


I have no idea what to do to be honest... I have tried and tried, and Im near ready to give up. Can any one give me a walk through, or walk me through setting up an internet connection with Slackware 10.2

What hardware are you using?
Is it using a USB or Ethernet connection from modem to computer?
Or is there a router between the computer and modem?

And, does your ISP require PPoE? Check what your ISP requires, too.

Plus, can you post the results of both:
Code:
lspci
lsmod
That will give us an idea if the hardware is working or not (first step) then software (2nd step)

Can you post the output of these commands?
Code:
lspci
Code:
dmesg | grep eth
Code:
ifconfig -a
It would make us clear with nearly all the common facts about the problem.

Alright, you have got 2 nic cards and as per the output of the ifconfig command, we see that both of them have their drivers installed. I expect to see eth0 too in the dmesg command too. Anyway, let's proceed.

I am assuming that you get your ipaddress from you internet service provider through their dhcp server.
I am also assuming that your eth0 is connected to the dsl modem whereas eth1 is used to connect to your local area network.

First of all, we will configure /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. Look in this for a section similar to the code below and make the changes indicated in red color. The text in blue color are just hints from my side.

Code:
# Config information for eth0: Hint:Use ur real ipadd/subnet
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

# Config information for eth1: Hint:Use ur local ipadd/subnet
IPADDR[1]="192.168.0.1"
NETMASK[1]="255.255.255.0"
USE_DHCP[1]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[1]=""

# Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY="eth0"

Now, we will edit your /etc/resolv.conf You might need to consult your isp to
get these values. Replace X.X.X.X with the ipaddresses of your dns servers
Code:
search yourispdomain.com # hint - your isp's domain
namserver X.X.X.X        # your primary dns server
namserver X.X.X.X        # your secondary dns server

Now, restart your network
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart
And there u r done.

now, if you wish to share this connection with other users on your local area network,
run these commands. Remember, these rules are lost on every boot. So, if u want the connection to be share automatically, add these lines to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file
Code:
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
If you find any part of the above confusing, please feel free to ask.

Then we need to configure only eth1 in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

What is the local ipaddress of your router?
Do you want to use a static ipaddress for eth1 or through a dpcp server?

You need to edit this file by using a text editor like "kwrite" or something. And to edit this file, you must be logged in as root
