connecting to internet
I am able to connect to internet in Ubuntu linux by following these steps:
1. In the terminal, type
2. A text-based menu program will guide you through the steps
1. Confirm that your Ethernet card is detected.
2. Enter your username.
3. Enter your password.
4. If you already have a PPPoE Connection configured, you will be asked if it may be modified.
5. Popular options: you are asked if you want the “noauth” and “defaultroute” options and to remove “nodetach”. Choose Yes.
6. Use peer DNS - choose Yes.
7. Limited MSS problem - choose Yes.
8. When you are asked if you want to connect at start up, you will probably want to say yes.
9. Finally you are asked if you want to establish the connection immediately.
3. Once you have finished these steps, your connection should be working.

4.2.3. Stopping the connection

But it does not work in Mandriva Linux. What is difference and how to connect to internet in Mandriva Linux. I am new to linux, So, Please tell in detail.
Hello and Welcome.
Can you tell us why you think it isn't working? Is your network card being detected? Does Mandriva have the PPPOE/ADSL software you need? Are you having a problem with the software?
Can you post the output of these commands please?
dmesg |grep -i firmware
**You might need to use sudo for these commands to work, or use su -
when i run lspci |grep net
it said command not found
I'm pretty sure the command is installed. Likely, you need to run it logged in as root, or prefaced with /sbin.
Hi anchitjindal07... do you have to use the terminal environment, or are you able to run a GUI? If you have Xwindows, then I would suggest sticking to the excellent system config tools provided in the Mandriva configuration menu. Setup and run the modem from there.
The Mandriva tools will often automatically install required packages etc. which may be missing... .
