Re: ADSL problem...

apt-get install pppoe?

ADSL modem use either pppoe or dhcp.  Since your ISP
gives you a software package, I assume it is pppoe.

My rule of thumb is as follows:

1.  PPPoE if a username/password pair is required to login.

2.  DHCP if no software/no login is required to use the

Good luck.

I only received software for winblows and I really, really don't want to have to install that rotten OS on any of my machines as I'm afraid that it's festering leprosy may affect the rest of the network.

With an *average* turnaround time of 6 months to get an adsl line installed, I'm afraid technology might have moved on by the time they start to figure out that other OS's exist!
