problems with dhpdcd


I guess that I shoul come to this forum, but I am not sure...

I've got a new adsl modem, since the other one had broke...
And when i try to run the same thing as I did with the other modem I can't get online... I run dhcpcd as usual, and when it is finished i still can't get online... Could it have something to do with the modem?

yeah perhaps

Try to reach your modem configuration
and see if it is dhcp on

But as i'm a newbie Does the modem is a routeur???
Is it connected via usb or ethernet?

On mine i had the same problem. I have put a static ip
to my eth0 because i have only one box and a routeur
on which i disabled dhcp
And then when i was entering domain name on my browser like google.com host unreachable it says
because my routeur had stopped sending me the precious information from the DNS of my ISP

Only http with real ip address was working
I discover it typing in a last hope the ip address of google. So i suggest you to try it!

I've tried different software... dhcpcd, dhclient... Well, not too many, but I don't think that i'ts a software issue...

I use a ethernet modem, and it recives the signal from the gw...

Also, when I plug the adsl modem into the phone network, the 56 k modem slows down so much I cant use it... Could this mean that the modem is broken?
