    Setting up ADSL


    Hi I am new to Linux, and have version 10.1 of Suse. I am trying to setup my Netgear DG834GT wireless router to work with Linux. Each time I try to set up my wireless card using PPP over atm I get the following message

    These packages need to be installed:
    smppd
    ppp
    pptp
    linux-atm-lib.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    As a first step, why not install those packages?

    Use YAST to install them.

    The problem is all but one is installed, linux-atm-lib wasn't in the library like the others how would I install this from cd-rom it's a tar.gz file, what directory does it need to be in.

    The rpm package is supposed to be on the DVD.

    Then again, I know nothing about Suse, better wait for someone else to answer.

    What I know is that setting up a ppp connection is just a mather of typing pppconfig in most distro (once you got the right packages intalled).
