Can't connect to the internet with DHCP

Recommended Posts

I found one problem -- the etc/hosts file had only one entry,

localhost, and it was mapped to sympatico.ca!

 

I fixed that and rebooted, but it still isn't trying.

I don't see any BIOS errors for pppd, but i sure would like to

slow that screen down!

 

Here's some ifconfig info the way I got it off the mcc Manage

Connections dialog:

 

adsl(ppp0)
IP  
	DHCP
	No IP@
	No mask
	DNS Servers: 199.43.182.6 & .5

	dhclient
	Assign host name from DHCP @
	DHCP host name: sysmpatico.ca
	DHCP timeout: 5
	Get DNS servers from DHCP

	Start at boot

I mean Linux start-up msg's which occur right after what used

to be called the BIOS msg's.

 

Yes, these are in /var/log/messages!

Thank you, that will be a big help.

 

The only possible deal breaker I see is:

-- ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on at.

-- pppd[5335]: unrecognized option 'No'

-- ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on at.

-- pppd[5282]: unrecognized option 'No'

 

How can I get these msg's to windows?

i.e. can I format a file on my flash drive that

will be readable by XP?

I do not think I can help you further since I use DHCP and have no experience with what you are trying to do.

 

One thing that does come to mind is that the use of a gui may make your configuration task easier. Was there not a package that looks like rp-pppoe-gui also? This would likely provide you with a gui to configure rp-pppoe.

 

Maybe a new post with rp-pppoe in the title would attract some pppoe expertise from the board.
