Re: Thomson SpeedTouch ADSL Modem
The model of the refered modem is the grey Thomson Speedtouch USB ADSL
Modem 330, which i haven't described previously.
I want it to work with the default debian sarge install. There's a
package which provides the necessary module but then I have to
download and then load the necessary firmware, which I did. The
problem is that i can't seem to get a network interface to connect to
it. I have a set of scripts i have to put in /etc/ppp/peers and then
call the connection by issuing pon adsl or pppd call adsl.
I heard some other interfaces have to be configured instead of ppp0,
interfaces like nas0 or tap0.
What's the difference between calling ppp0 or the mentioned interfaces ?
I'm running around google to set the connection and I have a few
tutorials to configure the connections in other linux distro's like
fedora, SuSE or RedHat, but not debian, which happens to bem my
Another thing: What's the difference between PPPoverATM and PPPoverETH
( pppoatm, pppoe) ? And what's the standard for Portugal, or both of
them can be used ?
Best regards to you all, TIA for your concern,
