can't connect puppy to the internet thru ADSL
 
Hello All,

I have Puppy 4.1.2 installed on a USB stick (frugal)
and I can't connect it to the internet.

When I start it at work it detects the network card
and the LAN, and goes out to the internet with no problem.

At home I have ADSL modem and I am using "Roaring Penguin PPPOE",
I am giving it all the information it asks for on the "setup" :

* ISP username
* eth0
* on demand - NO
* DNS server address - tried with and without
* ISP access password
* Firewall - 0
* adjust configuration - y

I then click on "start" and after few seconds it says it is connected,
but I don't see any webpages on FireFox.

While trying to identify DNS problem I typed the ip address on the url line
on FireFox, but it didn't load any pages.

I could not ping any ip addresses on the internet.

I verified with my ISP that the addresses on resolv.conf ARE the correct DNS servers addresses.
I didn't write them there. Puppy wrote these addresses.
It writes them there even if I supply it with a wrong DNS server address during setup.
There's no ping to these two DNS addresses on puppy,
although I do get a ping from them on my Win XP installation
on the same machine (Hard drive).

Ping to the gateway is ok.

There's no problem with this machine what so ever when I boot
it to the Win XP Pro installation.

Following are redirections of ifconfig -a , route -n , and cat resolv.conf .


Any help appreciated,

Babypeng

I think there must be a mistake. your IP-adress and the PTP-adress should belong to the same subnet (but I'm not sure).

Another thing: if you deal with IP-adresses DNS doesn't matter. So if you cannot ping an ip-adress outside your network, there must be something wrong independent of your DNS-settings.
