Ok, from this it shows that you are using ppp to connect to the
ISP. This would mean wither PPPoE or PPTP as far as I know.

I don't know much about PPTP but if you use chap I think its pppoe since
PPTP uses a VPN. start by doing "ps ax | grep ppp" when connected, the
server used should probably show up there (at least for pppoe it should
show a line in the sorts of: /usr/sbin/pppoe -I eth0 -T 80 -m 1452)

If it shows up pppoe you will need the following support in you kernel:

and probably optionally (I never checked what happens without them):


That is under network device support->PPP...

ADSL should just continue to work after that with the new kernel. If its
PPTP, have a look at http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/, I am not sure
if you will have to patch you kernel for that.

In that case just ignore most of my previous discussion and go with the
pppoe option (I should read emails all the way through properly before
answering ;-)

This can take the load of running pppoe from you linux box and probably
the firewall if you don't have any special firewall demands, if you can
find the right interface to connect to and set it up.

You will have to change your local ip then to test this, and from my
experience with my modem (eci one) disconnect it from the internet and
disable PPPoE (/etc/init.d/ppp stop) it may make it change to a
different mode.

Then point you browser to that address:, and you
should get a setup page.
