New to Linux and a stupid problem, after a net install of the Sid distro
of Debian in my office using my office's lan network (ssssh) I found
that I cannot make a connection to the internet at home where I used to
make a connection using 'pon dsl-provider' before.
Running pppoeconf finds a network card when in the dialogue a sentence
appears that says IRQ #233 is stopped (never saw that before, don't know
the reason). On the question if I want to use eth0 I press yes and
pppoeconf starts to 'concentrate bla bla on access bla bla' but than
tells me that it can not configure the network card.
What should I change in /etc/ network, interfaces, hosts, resolve.conf,
more (?) to make my 'pon dsl-provider' work again? Maybe somebody with a
dsl connection can post a copy of his/her network config, thanks in advance.
With best regards, Sander
