Cool Setting up pppoe over router on Slackware-Current

How can I setup pppoe over the router on Slackware current? I have setup a WAP network on the other computer through the easy setup tool that linksys provides, but it can't find the internet connection. I am using a linksys WRT54G router. Thank you for your time.

If you refer to these instruction,, it's pretty straight-forward; you connect the Ethernet cable from your modem (be that DSL, cable, or whatever you have) to the router jack marked "Internet" and you connect a second Ethernet cable from any one of the router jacks marked 1 through 4 to the Ethernet jack on your system. Then open a browser and configure it with your ISP account login and password as shown in the instructions above.

If you did not set up your network during installation, you can either set it up manually using a text editor or you can, as root, execute the netconfig utility; in either case, the file containing the network configuration is /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. You may want to set your server address to something like, the gateway address to (that's the router), and chose either fixed-IP or DHCP as you prefer.

Your machine(s) need to know the router's address, the gateway address, (which is by default) but they do not need to know anything about PPPOE (that's the router's job).

Hope this helps some.
