Question Install Prolink H9601 ADSL usb modem in Ubuntu (Linux Mint 9) - Help Needed !!!


Hi,
I'm bit new to Linux world and recently installed a new Ubuntu version Linux mint 9 on my laptop dell d 830. everything's work fine exept for the internet connection.
i'm from Sri lanka and use SLT adsl connection. i have a Prolink H9601 usb modem with me and tried to install it.
i referred to some post here and followed the steps as below.

----------------------------------------------------
posted by harindu:

The linux driver for prolink h9601 is eciadsl(google it)
PM me if you have a problem!
install it and the download the synch.bin achive which is also there and extract it to /etc/eciadsl/synch
use the following parameters to configure
using eciadsl-config-text command as root
VID1=0915
PID1=8102
VID2=0915
PID2=8102
MODE=LLC_SNAP_RFC1483_BRIDGED_ETH_NO_FCS
VCI=35
VPI=8
FIRMWARE=/etc/eciadsl/firmware00.bin
SYNCH=gs7470_synch20.bin
PPPD_USER=(username)
PPPD_PASSWD=
USE_DHCP=no
USE_STATICIP=no
STATICIP=
GATEWAY=
MODEM=Other
MODEM_CHIPSET=GS7470
SYNCH_ALTIFACE=0
PPPOECI_ALTIFACE=0
PROVIDER=Other
DNS1=203.115.0.46
DNS2=203.115.0.47
then to connect enter these commands as root eciadsl-start.keep entering this command until an error comes telling that a process called eciadsl-pppoeci is already running.
then type ifconfig and you must see something like this(without any rx packets):
tap0
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr d6:ab:d9:99:f5:2e
inet6 addr: fe80::d4ab:d9ff:fe99:f52e/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:18395 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:19493 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:500
RX bytes:17577091 (17.5 MB) TX bytes:2835186 (2.8 MB)

if you dont see something like this then try eciadsl-start again until you see it.

then after tap0 appears
enter the command pppoeconf tap0
then it will scan some stuff and press enter for all those stuff enter you username and password when asked.after you are done ,
connect by typing pppoe-start
happy surfing
PM me if you have a problem!

-----------------------------------------------

i did the installation and created the script using "eciadsl-config-text" command and was success.

but when i run the "eciadsl-start" command it gives me an error as below.

-----------------------------------------------

oshan@oshan-dell-d830 / $ eciadsl-start

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asymmet...llation_issues
may be of some help to you. It describes the need for a splitter near the point at
which the telephone company network ends and connects with the wiring at the customer
premises. It may be as simple as that, I do not know.

Best wishes!
