    it sounds like in that case you need to run
    Code:
    pppsetup
    . A quick search looks like a program called PPPoE willl be necessary, but slackware *should have* installed it.

    if that doesn't work you might try running rp-pppoe or pppoe

    Actually I use DSL, it looks like that's for dialup. If that's true, I could have worded that better.

    I ran pppsetup and I'm pretty sure it's not it.
