Connecting via ADSL/PPPoE

I am using SLAX Kill Bill edition. I have SBC Yahoo! DSL and a Speedstream 5100 modem. I have already tried the adsl-setup command, but have had no luck. Is this a browser error or something else?

I also have SBC Yahoo DSL and a 5100 speedstream modem, but with a hard drive install of slackware 10.0, 2.4.26

Assuming all of your connections are right, you should just be assigned (at least this is how it worked for me) an ip address by the isp. The only extra step that I had to do was run dhcpcd as root.

so i guess this would be my suggestion:
turn off the modem
open a console
run "dhcpcd" as root
turn on the modem
after a while (blinking lights are solid green), try ifconfig and see if you have a public ip address
test connectivity, ie "ping"

not the best solution, but it worked for me!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
