The modem I'd like to connect with is a Bewan ADSL Ethernet model. This modem works as I use it with XP. I previously had a Mandriva and it was working fine. As a matter of fact, there is a wizard in Mandriva where you just select your ISP and the type of your modem, then you just give your identifier and password and everything is set up.
I ran an ipconfig with XP and I got 192.168.0.1 with a submask of 255.255.255.0. Under XP, I have a ppoe connection wich keeps my identifier & password.
At the first boot with Mint, I had two entries in the connection menu : one is my ethernet card (a.k.a. "wired") and the other one is "modem". As I've mentionned, I've screwed the settings of the Ethernet card.
Basically, what I need is :
- find the settings of the "wired connection"
- find the settings of the "modem connection".
Unfortunately, it looks like I've destabilized Mint (because of the local loop?) and when I play around with the network settings, I'm unable t orun the control panel anymore, and I cannot shut down.
Sorry, Boo, for continuing a previous post : I thought it was more convenient to have one thread with posts dealing of the same topic. I won't do that again!
Thanks in advance
