openSUSE 11.2 + GNOME how to use ADSL to connect internet?
Could you be any less informative?!
Try describing your hardware etc…
I think I need a dial-up software like PPPoE on windows, so I can dial-up to connect internet using the username and password which the ISP gave me.
You need a adsl modem
A little like this
I have all necessary hardware, and I know how to dial-up using Windows XP, I am using Windows XP to post this thread. but I don’t know how to do this using openSUSE.
please refer to this link:
Windows XP - PPPoE DSL Connection
I need a guide like above link focus on openSUSE, thanks:)
So how is your ADSL modem connecting to the computer, USB or ethernet? If it’s ethernet then you should be able to configure the modem directly without the need for client software. If it’s USB, what is the modem make and model?
the ADSL modem connect to my computer using ethernet.
I don’t need to config the modem, I am using the ADSL modem to connect internet now, but I am using Windows XP now:(.
I know on Redhat, there is a adsl-setup, then I can input the username and password the ISP give me , then adsl-start, then I should can be connected to the internet, but how about openSUSE? where can I input the username and password the ISP gave me ?
I need a PPPoE client which can work on openSUSE
where can I input the username and password the ISP gave me ?
All this is done in the router, which should be permanently live. All you do is connect to it.
Whn you boot into openSUSE there should be an icon in the notification
area called network manager? If no then start the YaST configuration
utility and check under network devices, is is set to traditional ifup
and change to network manager?
In this utility (network manager) you can configure your pppoe
