Need help with PPPoE ADSL connection for Mandrake Linux 9.1...


My ISP is Bell Sympatico HSE, and I have no clue how to get online...lol

I have an NVidia Rhine II NIC and I connect through a hub that is also used by a Windows ME (my sister's) and a Windows XP (my parents') conputer.

Try this. It may help.

Start thingy then Configuration then Mandrake Control Center. Root password. Click Network and Internet then DrakConnect. You should be able to walk throught the setup then. You basically just tell where the net is, which port, and it goes from there.

Hope that helps.

Hmm...That was the first thing I did, and it wouldn't let me connect.

Does anybody have the information I need to provide to connect to Sympatico HSE?

Sorry, links. Have to

http://hven.swarthmore.edu/~burns/HSE_Linux.html
http://www.linuxcompatible.org/forum...opic.php?t=710
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=71233


I put the best one on top. I hope that will help. If not check the others. I use dial-up so I have never had the pleasure.

Hope that helps. Post back if not.

Oh, how did I find that. www.google.com/linux and searched for Sympatico HSE. That's it.

Later
