    Default Can't connect to Internet. [openSUSE 11.4 KDE]

    First: I'm using Linux (physical installed, no VMware) since 1 day now.
    I also have WinXP installed...

    The problem I can't connect to Internet

    I have a DSL/LAN Modem: Aon SpeedTouch 510 Ethernet
    I also tried to add a connection.
    I filled out Username, Password, IP, DNS, etc... with all the information, but I can't get a connection.

    The Driver CD is useless, because it's only for Win98-Vista

    Under XP, the connection says: WAN Miniport (PPTP)
    In Linux I wasn't able to find PPTP.

    Can someone help me with this.

    I want DELETE Windows XP, because I need the space...

    Does that thing dial on demand in XP, it's not an always on device?

    If it is, they are tricky AFAIK
    Most everyone I know that uses linux has a proper router

    Someone may know more than me, but I did have one of these speedtouch devices yonks ago and had to build a driver to the kernel.

    IIRC there was a folder on my CD with firmware to build the driver for linux

    the modem uses a dial-up connection VPN
    on the cd are only exe files and some installation readme's for windows up to vista
