Re: Connecting ADSL
Hi Tim, I am far from expert in this arena, but I have PPPoE working
with my SNET DSL
connection. I think I used dialup to grab the following tarball
I also made sure I had ppp module and the modules for my ethernet cards
and then it was
a matter of filling in blanks. I wish you the best of luck.
You may also be able to google on YOUR PROVIDER, Linux and see if anyone
else has posted

Note that many ADSL modem do NOT support PPPoE which makes
them difficult to configure. I have read many
advice-responses to these thing, tried ADSL4Lin (which will
set up certain connections but not mine--first question is
for country and then local providers are presented and the
menus are in Dutch). To no avail.
The Eth0 is set up presumably correctly. I can ping the modem
(10.0.0.138) and the computer's IP (10.200.1.1/255.0.0.0) as
directed by the provider. What is patently MISSING is my
LOGON to the ADSL!!
How does one do this? Is the PAPsecrets thing the way and how
is this set up?
Apparently most Linux installations assume that the computer
is on a network that is always connected from a server.

I have no idea what modem you are running, but I had similar issues to start
I found http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/index.php?lang=en to be a fantastic bit
simple to setup (username, pass etc), type of modem, provider addresses
