BT Openworld ADSL connection problems.
I am a very basic Linux user running redhat 8 dual boot with XP Pro.
I have a bt openworld connection through a USB INTEL AnyPoint DSL 3240 modem.
I cannot connect to the net.
I can see the USB device in Linux and I have used the network config wizard to configure an the device as ethernet hardware eth1 (eth0:0 and eth0:1 are used by my NIC for my apache setup).
I then tried to configure an xDSL conn through the wizard but I just get an error after about 3mins of trying to connect saying PPP error.
Following some advice I ran
dmesg | grep -i usb
hoping to see something like
CDCEther.c: eth1: blah blah
but this was not in teh returned text. Instead I had some messages about no driver claiming my USB device.
Does this mean I don't have the correct driver for my modem?
Even though the KDE control centre can see the modem and loads of info about it. Make, Model etc.
Any help at all would be appreciated as rebooting in XP just to surf the net is really bloody annoying.
