    ADSL connection


    Greetings! I just installed Slackware 11 kernel 2.6.17.13 and it's kernel modules and headers but I can't get it to connect to the internet. My NIC connects to a router/modem and no other boxes share this connection. I am using ADSL that uses a DHCP protocol.

    This are the info my ISP gave me;
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.240.0
    DHCP Server/Default Gateway: 122.2.96.1
    DNS: 58.69.254.133 and 58.69.254.71

    This is my resolv.conf
    search pldt.net
    nameserver 58.69.254.133
    nameserver 58.69.254.71

    This is my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
    # Config information for eth0:
    IPADDR[0]=""
    NETMASK[0]="255.255.240.0"
    USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
    DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

    # Default gateway IP address:
    GATEWAY="122.2.96.1"

    My ifconfig -a
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:1D:08:0B
    BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:7470 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:14 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:532744 (520.2 KiB) TX bytes:5188 (5.0 KiB)
    Interrupt:11 Base address:0x2c00

    My lsmod
    tulip 46240 0

    My dmesg
    tulip0: MII transceiver #1 config 3100 status 7809 advertising 01e1.
    eth0: Davicom DM9102/DM9102A rev 64 at e0c82c00, 00:08:A1:1D:08:0B, IRQ 11.

    I also added these lines in lilo.conf
    append = "ether=irq,ioadd,eth0"
    append = "ether=11,0x300,eth0"

    And still no connection I don't know if I missed anything, I hope someone can advise me what to do because I'm really struggling to get this box online. Thanks in advance

    Was the router already configured and working
    before you installed linux on your computer?
