configure router-modem adsl

Postby Philippe » Fri Jul 15, 2005 6:50 am

hey!
not so long ago I posted for help with a speedtouch 330, ppl recomended me to buy a router. and so I did buy a router modem adsl.
I already configured the router's internal settings and works already on win.
Its a D-LINK DSL502T plugged on my ethernet port.
I tried ifconfig eth0 up in my mandriva LE2005 and i thought it should be able to browse imediatly... but not...

plz help!

Internet is the only thing keeping me from switching from MS to Linux

Thanx philippe

In MCC go to the network settings and set network to automatically get an IP, which the router will supply, set the gateway to the router's IP address and then restart the network!
This is of course theoretical as I don't have mandy sitting in front of me but it should work ;-)

i have a 504T and had the same problem if you are with wanadoo as i am you can email them and they will give you the settings,the problem i had was that wanadoo gave me the wrong username they said it was 1slipperyfish (troll)@wanadoo..blah but it was in fact 1slipperyfish (troll).wanadoo...blah :roll:
another thing is before you plug it in make sure your os is already running as sometimes mine can't log onto wanadoo if you turn it on before the os is up.
apparently most of ips use the automatic ip rather than a static one
