View Full Version : eth0 FAILS
5th April 2004, 02:02 PM
When trying to activate eth0 it fails in Fedora 1. I am new (actually an old user who has forgotten everything) to Linux and am about to give up so this is my last ditch effort. I am using an Adsl modem and my IP is dynamic. I am trying to activate the connection via DHCP. Should I be using PPPOE (and how do I do this)? Network sees my NIC card fine so I know this isn't a hardware problem. Please help.....

Yes I believe you should be using PPPOE. Did you create the interface using the redhat-config-network applet? It has an option for xDSL modems. What does "ifup eth0" at the console tell you? Did you see anything in your kernal log? (type dmesg at console).

No. Where is the config utility located? I will type dmesg at console next time I log in. I'll let you know what I get.

O.k. I found the config utility and set it to xDSL. Curiously it wants to use dialup instead of DHCP by default. Is this correct? Also, when I type ifup into term I get this message "./ifup configuration for ppp0 not found". Do I edit this file? If so, where is it located? And what do I edit it with?

i have the same problem here. the file is in /sbin.

same problem here. ppp0 displays a status of "active", but i still cant access the net.
quick question: do i need to activate the ethernet connection of the nic i'm going to use for xDSL?
i'm using a VT6105 RhineIII VIA NIC.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

If on router: /usr/sbin/system-config-network.
(check /etc/resolv.conf for valid ISP ip)
If you want direct adsl connect: /usr/sbin/adsl-setup

You can do the following steps:
1) adsl-setup // config your adsl connection
2) adsl-start or ifup ppp0
