CONNECTING TO DSL WITH PCLINUXOS 0.93a


I was running the livecd of PCLinuxOS 0.93a Junior. I tried to connect to the internet using tkpppoe - it's gui based but it failed to. I opened the terminal and typed pppoe but still no lack. It only displayed garbages (in ubuntu, pppoe works).

Finally I typed 'pppoed-setup', it prompted for username, pword etc. Then, I typed (after running pppoe-setup) 'pppoe-start' and presto! I am connected!

To stop the the connection type (on the terminal) 'pppoe-stop'.

This guide works if you're dsl connection requires username and password.
If your ISP configured your dsl-modem to automatically connect and they configured your username and pword in the modem, this guide may be unnecessary.
