for some reason it's not logging you on at all... that error message basically says it can't connect. I'm lost my friend...sorry.

Maybe reinstall the RPPPoe and PPP packages just to make sure they're not banged up. Other than that I don't know what to tell you. Someone else?

should be: rp-pppoe-3.5-i386-1 and ppp-2.4.1-i486-3 both in "n" I'd remove the other packages first to give it a fresh go. I know that this isn't the normal way to do things, but I'm not sure what you have on that system of yours that's causing so many problems.

assuming you're using slack, go to pkgtool and go down to remove packages... choose the ones you don't want (rp-ppp and ppp) and then install the packages with installpkg. you can also remove packages with removepkg... Read http://www.slackware.com/book/index....rce=x4000.html

cheers.

don't know... there's probably a pdf of it somewhere. It may even be on the distro disks somewhere.

Hi,

I have the Speedtouch ADSL modem and it's seems I had the problem your having now. I solved it by running the netconfig utility and choosing loopback instead of Static IP or DHCP.
Maybe you should run the netconfig again after you got ADSL running if you have to setup a LAN. I'm going to try that now.

Type "netconfig" on the command line. Choose a name, then a domain name, then choose for loopback.
