setting up internet on net install


I can't install debian using a net-install since I can't set up my internet connection first before downloading the package.

I have a dsl connection with a username and password, how do I set it up before configuring the package sources?

Thanks!

Simple. Just download the first or the first two CDs, install Debian and get a working system (including X11 and the desktop environments) and then configure your network.

A workaround and not a solution, but this might be the easiest way for you.

What device are you using? What kind of connection do you have? Static IP or DHCP? Ethernet modem/router or a USB modem? What is the model of your device and so on...

More information is required, please.

Hi!

I have a dsl connection with a username and password.

I was able to set it up using pppoeconf, but I'm still having problems with it. I can't connect, can't ping..

I'm positive I did everything right during pppoeconf. I entered the same values I do when I configure my network on Libranet installation which worked fine for me before.



anything I should check?

You can "su" to root and do "ifconfig -a" to see what interfaces are up and active (receiving packets).
