Answers
  • This is a tedious process.....
    plz try the followings....select the dsl module from the yast network devices section. This module consists of several dialogs based on one of the following protocols: ppp over ethernet (PPPoE) ; ppp over atm (PPPoATM); capi for adsl & point-to-point tunneling protocol.
    In the dsl devices tab of the dialog, there is a list of installed dsl devices. To change this, simply select it in the list and click edit. Or if u don't see then u have to manually add the dsl device.
    This kind of conn is based on PPPoE or PPTP requires that the corresponding network card be set up in the correct way. Hope, u did the same earlier by configuring the card by selecting Configure Network Cards. In the case of a dsl link, addresses may be assigned automatically but not via dhcp. It is better to assign a static dummy address for the NIC, such as 192.168.10.1 following the subnet mask as 255.255.255.0, Note that, If u r configure stand-alone workstation, don't touch the default gateway and leave as empty.
    Again in dsl conf dialog, select PPP Mode and the NIC to which the dsl modem is connected (like eth0). Then use activate device to specify whether the dsl link should be established during the boot process. Click enable device control for less privileged user via kinternet utility. In the next dialog select the country & choose from a number of ISP operating in it. The details of any subsequent dialogs of the dsl conf depend on the options settings. To use dial on demand on a stand-alone workstation, also specify the name server (dns server) and ask ur ISP if they support for DDNS.

  • Are you trying to connect to your DSL (ADSL) account via your PC which is directly connected to a DSL modem? If so, is the DSL modem a model with an integrated router or just a basic modem like a Speedstream 5200?
