I am deployed to Iraq and the Earthlink ISP here uses PPPoE to configure a connection to their wireless broadband. His english skills are pretty good and from what I gather, he's got a DSL connection that he's trying to connect me to. He showed me how he does it on a Windows machine but I can't figure it out on my ubuntu laptop. That windows machine didn't need any IP addresses or server names. It only used a username and password to connect. Of course a strong wireless signal detected was also pre-requisite.
I know my laptop works because I've had great success with it here lately, just not on the Earthlink service.I see their wireless is broadcast and I can connect to it. I just can't figure out how to post my credentials and authenticate.I don't see a way of entering my username and password because I don't know how to install (or configure) for PPPoE.I did use the pppoeconfig and got to the part where I add my username and password, but most of what's going on up to and after that, I do not have the knowledge base to use. So I figured that allowing the defaults and recommended settings would be acceptableYou'll have to forgive me if I've asked another dumb question here. I'm another one of those Linux enthusiasts who is learning and I'm just not willing to switch back to MS just to get internet while deployed.
I have an internet connection which requires pppoe setup to login with the specified username and password ip address is dynamic.Above are the screenshots for your reference for which I establish the internet connection.the pppoe settings can be done through "sudo pppoeconf" but for the screenshot No. 2.what is the procedure? I need to specify the service name for my internet connection.how to configure my internet connection.
i configured my laptop (running UBUNTU 10.04 LTS) for my broadband (bridge mode). I did that using PPPOE CONF command. Everything goes ok but only prob is i have to run this command and configure my net every time i restart my system. What i need is it should connect to the net whenever i use the PON DSL-PROVIDER and must turn off by using POFF..
i have a routed and a PPPoE type internet connection, recently i tried a thing in terminal with the pppoeconf option since the network manager has problems with connectiong to the internet with a pppoe DLS connection, or anyway in my case it does not work. Ok i did the pppoeconf thing i inserted my pass and my user and left the program to do its thing, ok it all worked fine but then i restarted my system and suddenly the network manager did not want to recognize my network it hat as options some weird ipupdown options for connection and when i tried the pppoeconf thing again it did not work. what could i do to reactivate at least one way my connection, if i understood correctly the terminal type connecting and the network manager are two different things. now i am using my router and it should connect but the network manager still does not see the connection.
I cant get my wired internet connection to work. The command 'dpkg -s pppoeconf' returns ' installed ok installed'. My connection is through a router which is probably in a semi-bridge mode and I need to dial a connection to get the net started. The connection Auto eth0 is setup properly with the correct cloned MAC Address (that of my laptop).
I've also executed 'sudo pppoeconf' and ran the whole series of steps which towards the end said that my connection will be set on boot. However, the net doesnt work directly and I dont know how to dial manually either. 'sudo ifup eth0' returns 'interface eth0 already configured'. I tried some 10-15 threads but none worked. Ubuntu is handicapped without internet.
I would like to know how to configure a pppoe connexion? I am testing version 11.2 on live cd but I can't manage to connect my laptop. I used the "green plug software", I filled all the blanks (I am not a total beginner because I have been using Mandriva for a year) but afterwards I can't select pppoe instead of eth0 What should I do?
I read on this forum NET INSTALL PPPOE - Alionet, communaut francophone d'entraide openSUSE et SUSE Linux that the only reason that I can't configure a pppoe connexion is because I am using a live version of 11.2 as result that it only recognizes an ethernet connexion and a modem (everything I said, is said in the forum I linked, but you'll have to read it in french )
I try to configure a pppoe connexion to Tl2, my internet connexion provider. I live in France. My modem is a Bewan ADSL ethernet 100, no need to configure it.
I have a ppoe internet connection. I was easier and faster to configure it in Yast than in Windows XP. When The provider here sometimes goes through some problems and the connection may disappear and return at any unexpected moment. In Windows there is a icon on system tray that dysplays such information and I know when the connection is gone. It also allows me to try to reconnect manually. Where do I find these information on Opensuse here do I manage to reconnect. In Windows it was also possible to set the connection to re-dial automatically when it was out. It was very useful if it failed in the middle of a download, the system reconnected and the download manager retried until download resumed. Is there some way to adjust opensuse to reconnect automatically when connection fails or some software that does it? Furthermore, is there a good download manager that works in Opensuse that pause, accelerates downloads and retries when connection fails?
My father recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my new AMD dualcore, but we have not been able to access the net.we tried resetting the modem/router. Windows XP had no problem getting us online - why is it such an issue with Ubuntu?
i am having problem with setting up an internet connection on ubuntu plateform , presently i am running internet on xp plateform and want to switch to ubuntu plateform . i am connected to the internet through broadband connection by using modem. it's a dsl connection so plz tell me how to configure internet connection
i can't get a pppoe conection working over a wireless network,in windows I have to connect to the router first, and then put in my user and password to get connected, but i don't know how to do this on fedora, i get connected to the router through network manager, and ping is ok, but when i try to make a new xDSL connection i don't know how to make it work through the wireless network that is established and working with my router.
My network is windows pppoe. How can I configure it for Fedora 11? Is there any graphical configuration tool available for that? Also, ubuntu 9.04 logs into pppoe network after restarting as I've made some changes in /etc/network/interfaces. Is there any option available for Fedora 11 to automatically log in to pppoe network after restarting?
I have just installed FC11 from a DVD I created from an ISO.I also have FC10 (using here) and Windoze XP pro all on separate HDDs.I have not been able to configure my internet connection, when I try to create a new xDSL connection I get an error message; package needed 'rp-pppoe'.I don't now how to get the package without a connection.I have tried with and without Network Manager.
i am completely new to the world of Linux. But i want to learn it. My problem is , i cannot connect my PC to internet. I have a shared broadband connection which needs username and password to connect to internet. I don't know clearly but its something pppoe connection through wan mini port. or xdsl. I contacted my isp but in Our country (Bangladesh) a very few people use Linux or Ubuntu so they cant help me out. i searched many forums,, googled everywhere but cant make it working. i tried some command like "sudo pppoeconfig" but still dont understand. I know there are many people who know how to do this. My Pc configuration:
My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?
I want to create a broadband connection in suse 11.4 , in the windows the connection Properly works but in suse ...i recently installed qinternet , it runs the dsl connection , and shows this massage : " connected , connection established " , but no internet
I've been trying to use gnome-schedule to create a scheduled task that would dial my pppoe connection automatically. For this I used "sudo pon" command (after configuring the pppoe connection using pppoeconf ). Although the command gets executed, but then it waits for me to enter the password. I want it to be automatic & shouldn't require me/anyone to authorize it. Is there a way to enter this password automatically for the scheduled tasks?
Also, I'd like to use network manager, instead of pppoeconf, for the same purpose. How can I set network manager to dial a pppoe connection at scheduled time?
I'm trying to configure Iptables and I just want to block everything but http/https. However, my connection is pppoe, so I have the ppp0 interface. Pretty much every Iptables tutorial that I found don't teach how to deal with this kind of setup. I'm forwarding the ppp0 to eth0 and I could configure the input rules and they're working. After this, I need to configure the output but nothing seems to work.
The current working rules are: Code: Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 7858 packets, 5792K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 299 201K ACCEPT all -- any any anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:www 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:https 11 820 DROP all -- any any anywhere anywhere
Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 0 0 ACCEPT all -- eth0 ppp0 anywhere anywhere 0 0 ACCEPT all -- ppp0 eth0 anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 10791 packets, 1951K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination
I don't understand what those "state RELATED,ESTABLISHED" rules do. Also, I don't know if this rules are secure, because i'm very confused about the ppp0/eth0 interfaces.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
In Damn Small Linux? I have a dinosaur computer I need to use for something, and there's no ethernet port. But there is USB. On the internet box my ISP provided there's a port for a usb cable. But I plug it in and there's no connection. Tried Vector too. Is there a terminal command to make it work?
