    Ethernet adsl modem cannot connect to the Internet

    I have bought an ethernet adsl aztech 305E modem and I use RH linux 8.
    I have to NICs installed on my pc. Both are realtek. Eth0 is connected to the other pc and serves as a LAN. It is manually configured. Eth1 is connected to the modem and is used for internet connections. For Eth1, I set it to auto obtain IP add with dialup and to auto obtain DNS info from provider.After that, I setup an adsl connection (ppp0)

    I typed the ip address '' into the mozilla browser but the msg ' connection refused when attempting to connect to' appeared. Then i typed 'http://startmodem/' and 'http://login/' but the message ' could not be found' appeared.

    Then I tried the command line method. I used adsl-setup and then adsl-start or /sbin/ifup ppp0. But after a while,the message ' /sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 2433 Terminated $conncect "$@" 7/dev/null 2791 ' appeared.

    Do you know what the problem is? Is it an improperly configured NIC or ppp0? This ethernet modem also does not work in windows.
    Please reply quickly if you can.....thanks!!

    Can you post the output of "/sbin/ifconfig -a"?
