    Speedtouch 330 problem


    Hi
    I'm currently using this purple modem
    under Debian.Yesterday it works real fine.
    I was happy.
    Today can't work
    I've got a "LCP:timeout sending config request"
    So I did what they say in the faq:I suppress the pid
    number of ppoa3 in /var/run.
    Same results
    Does anyone have an idea?
    Thx.

    I cant say I've been able to find much about this. I personaly dont use DSL. but USB and a Network connection make for a headache.

    I did find this site which seems to do a good job over setup.

    If you have the option, sell that modem on ebay or something and by an ethernet DSL modem that complies with the PPoE standards.

    PPPOE = PPP over ethernet so basicly you can use any ethernetcard to use adsl. The software I use to connect with can be found at www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe

    Good luck
