Re: Ethernet modems under Linux?
MMM...I see u dont want USB modem,right?, if u want one, go to http://
www.flashtux.org and look the database of drivers,there are many
modems USB u can get (like ALE 070, ALE130 and others)...but if u
want modem for ETH0 (its better), u just need plugin the modem, if u
have adsl u need download the rpppoe script to configure ur adsl, If u
are using Slackware just do it:
u need put ur username,pass, DNS1,DNS2, and maybe other date, and
I think there are many distros with this script to configure ADSL,
