Internet on fedora 9
I have just registered to your forum. So a very very .... good morning to alll....:)
I have just installed Fedora 9 (Currently I don't have the Fedora 13 DVD) & a XDSL modem which is connected to the LAN port. My connection is a broadband one from BSNL.
I have created a new device/connection as System->Administration->Network->New->XDSL Connection and provided my username & password.
The very first time I switched on my Modem everything was fine , the Network Manager automatically get connected, though there was something like SeLinux AVC denial beside it.Then I have activated the eth0 & XDSL connection & easily get connected to the WEB.
But the very next time I restarted the system the above procedure is not working at all.....
And I am at the mercy of Windows, :(because the same modem works fine in Windows....
I will be very obliged to you people if you please get me out of this trouble , because I am tired off the viruses in the Windows......
I think Selinux is where to look. Open your firewall configurator. First:

i think selinux is unnecessary for most desktop users, just a firewall and common sense should be enough
that said, you will have less hardware problems if you use latest fedora (13) unless you have a specific reason not to upgrade
