Slackware and ATT DSL


I have AT&T/Yahoo DSL. How do I make it work in linux? I'm using Slackware, so I've run netconfig, but still no go. Your help is much appreciated!

Does the interface show up with as root;
ifconfig

if your interface is working you can just do

##dhcpcd interface

i used to have yahoo and that worked for both eth and wireless connections.

ifconfig -a
Code:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:18:F8:08:DF:C5  
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:5 Base address:0xa000 

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:D8:A2:57:A6  
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:4 

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:512 (512.0 b)  TX bytes:512 (512.0 b)
ifconfig normally just shows "lo".

dhcpcd eth0 didn't work. It sat there thinking for a minute and exited.

Here in winXP, I have the following info, though the IP address is useless since I have the cheap dynamic service:
Code:
physical address
00-11-D8-A2-57-A6

subnet mask
255.255.255.0

default gateway
76.200.78.5

dhcp server
192.168.0.1

dns server
192.168.0.1

wins server
n/a

ip addres
76.200.278.4
I should also mention that when I run netconfig, hostname is icarus, domain is zeus.net, type of service is dhcp (as opposed to loopback and static), and the server to connect to thing is 192.168.0.1 .

I should have realised eth1 was the right card. I just assumed eth0 would be the onboard nic.

What does adding "up" to "dhcpcd eth1" do? I didn't see it in the man page.

Huzzah for first post from linux! Thanks!

huh? I'm assuming it works, so hurrah!
adding up to dhcpd doesn't do anything, do you mean ifconfig? oh, and the post of the info from windows showed the MAC address used to connect, so you just compare that to the list, and you get the connected device.

Hah, that explains the lack of manpage information!
