D-Link ADSL router/modem and SuSE Linux configuration


I have one "simple" problem. Here it is:

I want to configure my SuSE 9.2 box to use D-Link DSL-502T (router/modem) for Internet connection.

At the moment I am able to connect to Internet when I set router work mode to "bridge".
I did configure DSL connection using YaST2 and KInternet.


How can I configure my Linux and router/modem to work in PPPoE mode and not simple "bridge" mode?

When I try to connect this way I get following error: "Couldn't get channel number: Transport endpoint is not connected"

###############################
If I am correct ( and please correct if I am wrong ) I should do following:

- configure work mode of router/modem as PPPoE (which includes setting username and password on router)

- configure Linux box to use network card only? No DSL or any other setup here, only plain DHCP client setup?

- network traffic and requests should go trough NIC to router and PC should not know anything about modem?

- when everything OK, router should set up connection on its DSL interface and PC should be connected?
################################

Can someone help me with this? Thank you!

Greetings.

you really don't need all that (pppoe, kinternet, blah) if you use the ethernet port, the router has a dhcp server in it, so configure your lan card for dhcp auto detect and point it at the router.

I did try that.

I configured my PC as DHCP client and I do get IP address (192.168.1.2) from router, and that router IP from LAN side is gateway for PC, but I am not able to connect to my ISP when router is in pppoe mode. If I switch to "bridge mode" I am able to connect to ISP, but that is exactly the way I don't wont to connect. I would like that router takes care about authentification etc...

OT:
I was able to connect in bridge mode, in Win using connection wizard, in Linux using YaST connection wizard, and using rp-pppoe, but I would like to use pppoe mode...

P.S.
One more question, is it possible that ISP blocks that kind of connection and forces to use only modem with one client for this service package and multiple clients connections for more expensive package?? I am aware of ICS but that requires one machine to be up so the other machine can access internet...

Thak you for your response,

Greetings
