    SuSE modem detection


    At the moment I'm only trying the SuSE live eval cd on this computer, I want to make sure everything (especially the internet) works before installing, especially after what happened when I installed it on the other computer

    Anyway, I went into the YaST DSL config thing, and it looks like my modem has been picked up (what looks like my zoom pci modem and another network device are listed under "already configured"). So I entered my provider (plusnet's) details.

    It finished all that, I ran kinternet dial up, but nothing.
    kinternet log:
    Code:
    Status is: disconnected
    trying to connect to smpppd
    connect to smpppd
    status is: disconnected
    interface is eth0
    
    status is: connecting
    pppd[0]: plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded
    pppd[0]: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.3 compiled against pppd 2.4
    pppd[0]: plugin passwordfd.so loaded
    status is: disconnected
    pppd[0] died: pppd options error (exit code 2)
    Any help fixing this would be great!

    Thanks

    exit code 2 means: An error was detected in processing the options
    given, such as two mutually exclusive options being
    used.
    go to /etc/ppp/peers folder and cp ppp ppp1 and then mv ppp1 kppp
    that may work!

    Thanks, but I got up to here: /etc/ppp/peers, then the files you mentioned didnt exist.


    Anyway, I just tried again, I went into the suse hardware config thing and pushed configure for the modem. It went through the little options (i left them all default, is there anything I need to change there? I've forgotten what all the settings were though. Something about ethernet, then some other choices, i take it this should be ethernet) thing, then said it was done.

    I went and configures the internet provider, for which network card to use it only gives me one option, "eth0". Anyway, next to that is "configure network cards". If I click it my zoom modem is there as configured, but it doesnt appear in the dropdown box.

    So I went ahead, tried connecting, only this time I get:


    Code:
    Status is: disconnected
    trying to connect to smpppd
    connect to smpppd
    status is: disconnected
    interface is eth0
    
    status is: connecting
    pppd[0]: plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded
    pppd[0]: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.3 compiled against pppd 2.4
    pppd[0]: plugin passwordfd.so loaded
    Timeout waiting for PADO packets
    Check your setup and network cables then try again
    pppd[0]: Unable to complete PPPoE discovery
    Status: Disconnected
    pppd[0] died: connection terminated at peers request (exit code0)
    Again, if anybody could shed some light on this, eternal gratitude and another suse installation for me

    and exit status 0 means:Pppd has detached, or otherwise the connection was
    successfully established and terminated at the
    peer's request.
    do you have a dsl connection?

    I am using yast's network cards/dsl setup and kinternet to dial up... I havnt seen "kppp" anywhere.

    I dont really understand what you want me to do with the /etc/ppp/peers folder, sorry.
    I have a dsl connection, with plusnet. Do I have to do somethig to make it sync (when i connect to windows a little icon flashes while it sync's, and i'm not able to dial up until it has).

    Thanks for your help

    using kppp program (there is in the installation cd's).there you can find terminal commands (init strings) and you can query modem(see if it is recognised by suse)
