ethernet card


this similar thread was posted on other linux forums but ppls theere seem to be unable to help me .. and as for the long thread .. its because im trying to make my plm a bit more clearer and informative. im having some plm wif my ethernet card in my laptop ( i dunno if its onboard integerated or a mini pci ). under network configuration there are two devices ( eth0 and ppp0 <-- xDSL that i set up earlier ) anyway, i gotta activate eth0 before ppp0 (xDSL) right? so, after i did .. a dialog msg came up and said cannot activiate the etho card. well, i checked the hardware tab ..

Code:
description - 3c905c-tx/tx-m [tornado] type - ethernet device - eth0 status - ok
i assume that the fedora linux already detected it but cannot turn it on? i checked the ethernet card port .. its green light is on and the dsl modem is working fine. all i need is make the linux os recognize the eth card ..

to make it easier for ye to understand .. on winxp box i just create a new dsl connection, input my account and pw .. connect the cable line between both end of the dsl modem and ethernet card's port .. i click connect .. poof im connected. but in this case, its just that the fedora os cannot uh communicate with the etho? ;p help?

1. if you are using DSL (like myself) you have to enter 1st and 2nd DNS numbers from you isp and follow the prompt to enter your providers name, user id and password at the ADSL connection wizard

2. you do not have to active the eth0 to activate your DSL connection....ONCE you entered all the needed info from you isp then activate ADSL connection and if you want to you can delete your eth0

3. you can use the EDIT section to active device when computer starts and under the DNS tab enter you isp DNS numbers and done....

4. if you want to start fresh delete any connections you created (even the eth0) and a follow all the prompts from ADSL wizard connection and at the end you will do the Network Configuration (dns)

i hope this helps

Follow this:

Open your terminal(must be root) and run:
Code:
/usr/sbin/adsl-setupComplete all steps of this configuration script.
Code:
/usr/sbin/adsl-start &Wait a few seconds and you should be connected...
(If adsl-start doesnt't work, try adsl-connect)

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

after i followed theirs advice .. here it is .. what i did after /usr/sbin/adsl-setup

Code:
[root@localhost root]# /sbin/ifup ppp0
[root@localhost root]# /usr/sbin/adsl-start
[root@localhost root]# /usr/sbin/adsl-connect

NOTE : I replaced the ips num with "X's" due to security reason.

btw, after i typed "/sbin/ifup ppp0" nothing happened .. " /usr/sbin/adsl-start" too. anyway, the error msgs continued after the above msg .. like this;

Code:
Using interface pppO
Connect: pppO <--> /dev/pts/17
LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Connection terminated.
pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
repeating all over again ..

Hi.

Is your DSL modem connected to your Ethernet card? If so, you can completely ignore ppp0.

What sort of modem is it? (Manufacturer and model)

Dave

EDIT: Sorry, I appear not to know what I'm talking about (having looked into the differences between pppoE and pppoA (which we use in Europe)). Please ignore this post.

I'm really no expert and I certainly have never used Fedora but I noticed the lines:

Code:
/usr/sbin/adsl-connect: line 16: ipchains: command not found
Are you missing an important package here? Nowadays Linux uses iptables in preference to ipchains so it's possible the distro hasn't installed them. perhaps try installing ipchains.rpm and see if that makes a difference.
