    Setting up my ADSL connection


    The only reason I still got windows was that I could not connect to internet bcuz of my winmodem
    now I finally got my ADSL connection set up and now wish to use it, but ...

    well, to use my ADSL connection on windows I just connect my ADSL modem to my LAN card and set up the IP address, Mask, Gateway and the DNS addresses provided by my ISP and everything works fine

    How could I do those on slack?
    The only thing I could do with ifconfig is setting up my IP address and nothing more

    If you use dhcp try connecting with:
    Code:
    dhcpcd eth0 up

    No! I should give it the IP,Mask,Gateway,DNS and Alt. DNS that my ISP gave me and I just know how to change the IP using ipconfig!

    With a lan card, two ways: pure ethernet or pppoe.
    Pure ethernet: either u got a dhcp server or u configure ur card thx to ifconfig.
    pppoe: more easy, use pppoeconf then enter all the informations and rewrite correctly ur resolv.conf and it should work fine
