    No PPP over ATM connection using PCI ADSL modem!


    This is the story. I've got SpeedStream 3060 PCI ADSL modem which is properly identified by SuSE in Network Devices. My ISP (Pipex) provides PPPoA connection, but it is not detected by SuSE in DSL. I tried to configure it manually but unsuccessfully. There is an option for PPPoA, but I cannot establish connection.

    All the guides I have found are quite complicated for me (I'm a newbie to Linux). Can anyone help me with it.

    PPPoA is news to me. Are you sure that you don't mean PPPoE?

    This is the log entry:

    SuSE Meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg), Version 1.50 on linux.
    Status is: disconnected
    trying to connect to smpppd
    connect to smpppd
    Status is: disconnected
    Status is: connecting
    pppd[0]: Plugin pppoatm.so loaded.
    pppd[0]: Plugin passwordfd.so loaded.
    Status is: disconnected
    pppd[0] died: pppd options error (exit code 2)

    Could be the problem be with those "pppd options error"?

    I have to admit that I don't know that much about PPP -- I've never had a PPP connection since I got my hands on Linux -- and this is getting quite over my head. Let's hope someone a little more familiar with PPP can help out.

    Well, I've got a response from Mitchell Blank Jr. who wrote lanai driver. There is no driver for my modem. So I am thinking about a router, if I am going to use Linux. Am I?
