This isn't urgent for anyone but you. Don't flag your posts as urgent, we all volunteer our time to help. Also, be descriptive in your subject line, not just "help me it's urgent".

What is a BSNL card?? What manufacturer? What happens when you boot the machine? Do you get an address at all? What are you plugging it in to, a home router, or is this in a business environment?

Post the results of "ifconfig -a", and "lspci", and perhaps someone can help you. Also, if this is a new installation, you might want to consider going to the latest Fedora, which is 9. That may solve any potential driver issues you might be having.

If you are looking for help urgently, then you need to start by giving your threads decent titles that summarise your problem. You also need to let us know what you have tried and where exactly you are experiencing problems.

Given the OP's profile I'm guessing maybe something to do with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd who are apparently India's No 1 Telecommunications Company. But just a guess and it doesn't really shed any light on what the OP's problem is. Apart from an apparently unfamiliarity with the word please.

You can see a tutorial at -->articles --> newbie

Basically you need no drivers. Remove the USB cable and use the ethernet part alone.

In Fedora you can set up a new DSL connection or configure the modem as a router.

Where do you get BSNL NICs??!

AFAIK you will need BSNL Modem + an ethernet card
