But my god that kernel recompilation looks extremely difficult and surely i'd be well out of my depth there. Is it possible for me to recompile it whilst following his advice on an Open Office document? Because otherwise i just wouldn't be able to remember all that.
that's exactly what i would do. print out heema's instructions so you have them at hand.

post back & let me know how you made out, any progress or failures.

also, can anyone recommend a suitable ADSL Modem / Router compatible with Linux and Windows (all should be though).

It will need to split a 1mb connection to 2 PCs and a hardware firewall onboard is preferable. It needs to connect to the 2 PCs wirelessly. An ADSL modem integrated is necessary and it must support PPPoATM protocol.

Lightbulb Mandrake Linux 9.2 / 10 and Conexant USB ADSL Modem

I'm just a Mandrake Linux 9.2 user and I'm writing this message connected to the net by a Trust 235a, one of the USB ADSL modems that use the Conexant chipset...

Buying an ethernet ADSL modem should be the best thing to do, but the cheapest one is buying a USB ADSL modem... xxvm1's Origo asu-8000 doesn't work on Mandrake, so here are my suggests!


Intro

If you have a look at http://dsl.linux.it/DSLChipsets you can see that Origo asr-8000 is supported by Conexant USB ADSL Modem Linux Driver (cxacru - http://sourceforge.net/projects/accessrunner ), but if you have a look at your modem manual you can see that Origo asu-8000 uses Conexant chipset too. There is also a proprietary linux driver for Origo asu-800 ( http://www.wellgroups.com/wellftp/dr...u-8000-src.rpm ) but I don't know anything about it, just that you have to rebuild the package.


Mandrake 9.2

There are other ways, but I think this is the simplest one. You have to download the 19.4 MB rpm with kernel 2.4.22-26mdk from internet (Attention! Not the latest update, 2.4.22-36mdk, but exactly ...26mdk, that you can find searching the web), install it as usual, reboot your machine with the new kernel (a new option should have been created in lilo: "2.4.22-26"), install all packages related to ppp, atm and usb and install the cxacru-2004-01-23.k2.4.22-26mdk.i586.rpm package (if the new kernel is ok you can uninstall the 2.4.22-10 one), configure etc/cxacru, /etc/ppp/options files (as described here: http://cxacru.altervista.org/eng.html - I've deleted "synch" in options configuration, but maybe it's different for you) and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets, /etc/ppp/pap-secrets files (add the line: USERNAME[PressTABhere]*[PressTABhere]PASSWORD[PressTABhere]*), try to connect as root typing cxstart.sh and to disconnect typing cxstop.sh. The new service will connect you to the net every time you boot your system and will disconnect you every time you turn off your pc.

Recommendations. Be sure that your ADSL line is up , that you've installed all needed packages,
that you have set the pppoatm.so path in the options configuration and PROTOCOL_MODE, VPI, VCI values in cxacru.


Mandrake 10

There are two precompiled version of the kernel:

kernel-2.4.25.2mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm
kernel-2.6.3.7mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm

upgradable, for security reasons, to:

kernel-2.4.25.7mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm
kernel-2.6.3.15mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm

I've found only one precompiled version of the Conexant USB ADSL modem driver, for Mandrake 10 kernel 2.4.25.2mdk:

http://www.lugasti.it/Documenti%20e%...i686.mdk10.rpm

So if you want use kernel 2.6 and the cxacru driver you have to follow heema's howto:

Now my dsl connection works fine with Mandrake Linux 9.2, but when I'll feel ready I'll try to follow your howto to upgrade from 9.2 to 10 (or to shift to another distibution).

I'm sorry for my English.
I mean my connection is working for a month, since my dsl line went up, but with Mandrake 9.2 (following the steps I've described): I haven't shifted yet to Mandrake 10 and so I haven't tried yet your howto (but I'm sure it's good!).
I posted my message just to tell xxvm1 how I've solved a similar problem using only rpms.

Bye
