Question adsl help with Fedora


Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone can help me setup my dsl connection? I'm using Fedora, the book I bought came with 3 cds (RedHat Bible by Christopher Negus). The book does not much mention of setting up a dsl other then to say it's a good thing, it's fast, and it can be setup same as dialup.
I tried to setup my connection using the "Internet Configuration Wizard" but that never worked. I then did a google search and found that if I use the command adsl-setup it runs you through your setup. That worked lastnight but today I got the big goose egg. I used the /sbin/adsl-status command to find out if I was up and I was, I even had a WAN IP address, but when I opened a web browser nothing, I then tried the ping command and nothing. So, here's my info

I have two ethernet cards eth0 & eth1
my dsl is setup with eth0 that card is set as dhcp, my provider is earthlink, and they use pppoe and dhcp.

My other card is for the LAN which I'm going to setup as soon as I get the high speed up and running. That cards IP is private 192.168.0.x SN 255.255.255.0

Both cards are Linux compatible, I made sure before I bought them and they are both recognized and active in "neat."

Ok that's my story and I'm sticking to it, I hope someone can help this lonely soul sitting here for what seems like never enough time. My ultimate goal is to setup a home server for mail, web,etc.etc. I have a few domains that I'd like to try and host myself. If all works out I'll spend the booty and get a static address. First things first though.

Thanks in advance,
Jack

Did you try running adsl-setup?
check whether you have the rp-pppoe rpm installed.

I'll have to try, but the strange thing is that I was able to get on today. The only difference was that I pluged the DSL modem into the switch uplink port. I would imagine that, that shouldn't have made a difference but it's up and I'm writting using that connection.
What I did was log into the service,(being dsl using the xp machine) then I logged on using the Linux machine and they both came up. I have two WAN ip's. How strange in that? Maybe the problem is that linux cannot find the DSL modem on it's own? Now that the switch is in play it know the MAC address of the modem and routes accordingly? Any ideas?

I did not read your initial post well ... you did run adsl-setup.

Question

HI,

Yeah I ran the adsl-setp, worked, then it didn't, then it did now it doesn't work again and when I try and logon it's as slow as mollasses. I have no idea what I've done I don't know if it's me or this book that has lead me down what seems the wrong path. Since it worked a couple of times I went ahead and started to build my firewall script and well, I guess I have to head back to the drawing board.
If anyone has any pointers please write back and help would be most kind.

Thank you,

Jack

Just wondering if adsl-setup will work if the modem is a USB modem? My ones an unsupported modem (Prolink Hurricane 8000) and I have no other choice because it's the only god damn adsl modem available in my country!

Unhappy ppp0 doesn't activate

I have just installed fedora core 2 in my p2 computer(minimum installation, no gui).

I setup my adsl connection using /sbin/adsl-setup. I followed the instruction but my ppp0 connection doesn't seem to work.

when i run ifconfig, i only see eth0, eth1 and loopback.

I followed the same setup in my Redhat 9(which worked), but fedora doesn't.

I just don't know why ppp0 doesn't show up in ifconfig.

I configured the two ethernet cards in network-scripts

ifcfg-eth0
device=eth0
bootproto=none
onboot=no

ifcfg-eth1
device=eth1
ipaddr="192.168.0.1"
netmask="255.255.255.0"
network="192.168.0.0"
broadcast="192.168.0.255"
bootproto=none
onboot=yes

I would really appreciate any help.
