set up DSL thru SWITCH - winXp connected to SWITCH too
hi, help me please...

right now I am using win XP -> switch -> DSL modem to connect to my ISP

now i want to be able to use the internet with my FEDORA too at the same time. Linux box was able to recongnize eth (i think, i pinged several times succesfully "something" prolly the modem.)

any help would be useful.... thanks and I have no idea how to use PPPoE, is there a built in programme? i cant find it anywhere.

configure the eth card with DHCP. The little black box that your ISP gave you will tell your card what to be configured to.

ok so i did that... how do i check whether there is a network created? or if I'm connected to the internet? this windows box is currently online, do i have to use PPPoE to connect the linux to the internet?

Yes you need to use PPPoE to connect to the internet using the same username and password. I do not use Fedora but there probably is an internet configuration GUI.

Once connected looking at the output of /sbin/ifconfig will show ppp0 interface with a valid internet interface.
