Are you having troubles with your modem or just configuring the actual connection? What modem are you using? And when you plug it in does BLAG detect it?

I am using a speedstream 5360 that was provided by my carrier. BLAG did not detected it. When i fiddle with the setting it did blink several times as if it was sending and receiving packets or something.

hope this helps.


thanks

Hi there. What settings did you mess with? Did you get any error messages?

Open the terminal and type dmesg | grep eth

Then post the reading here.

Found this out there on Google. I hope it works because I will be trying it soon.

Found this at http://sclug.usc.edu/pipermail/usclug-chat/2003-April/002393.html

Looks as though this is a package called Roaring Penguin. If you have a router that your modem connects to it may not be needed, but if you connect your modem direct to the system, you need to use a pppoe client.
May be one in the repositories, but I haven't had to look for it yet.

Install the rp-pppoe package, run 'adsl-setup', answer the questions,
run 'adsl-start' and 'adsl-stop' to start/stop the link.

Do you think it will be the same as Mandrake? It would be cool if it is. I haven't used Mandrake since 9.0 and that was only briefly.

The package rp-pppoe comes with BLAG. It is most likely already installed. It provides the adsl-start command.

Here's a list of commands it provides:
/sbin/adsl-connect
/sbin/adsl-setup
/sbin/adsl-start
/sbin/adsl-status
/sbin/adsl-stop
/sbin/pppoe
/sbin/pppoe-relay
/sbin/pppoe-server
/sbin/pppoe-sniff

Note, these have "sbin" in them, so they may not be in your PATH. So you may need to run "/sbin/adsl-setup" instead of just "adsl-seutp"
