You can use the same thing for eth0. Is the DSL line connected straight to your computer from the modem or do you use a router?
it wont autostart at bootup unless its controlled by network manager applet....i use a adsl modem
but that is not my problem at all.
my problem is that firefox always goes to "work offline" mode and add/remove software says that i m not connected to the internet
as an alternative i m using yumex, but i want everything to work perfectly.
