Configuring networks such as Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) or Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL), which are primarily used for Internet access, can be a hassle, especially when you are not using the same operating system. which the prescriptions were originally written. This article is the starting point for setting up DSL using Ubuntu Linux.
Step 1. Open Network Connections to configure network settings in Ubuntu
Go to “System”, “Preferences” "and select“Network Connections."
Step 2. Under the “Wired” tab, click on “Auto eth0” and select “Edit
Step 3. Click on the “IPV4 Settings” tab
Select the “Automatic (DHCP)” option if your network has a DHCP server. A DHCP server automatically assigns an IP address to your system. Click the "Apply."
You can also select “Manual” "from the Method drop-down list and assign the IP address, netmask and gateway manually. You will also need to assign a DNS server address. Click the Apply button."
Step 4. Check the IP address settings
Go to “Applications” “Accessories” and select “Terminal."
Step 5. Enter the following command in the terminal
“Sudo ifconfig” without quotes.
Step 6. Get new addresses
Ifconfig command will show IP address, broadcast address and mask address.
- If you have another way to access the Internet and do not understand what your ISP told you (or if they cannot help, because they offer nothing but help with Windows), use the IRC chat program (for example, MIRC or XChat) to connect to irc.freenode.net. Enter / join # Ubuntu and post your questions there. You won't find out the IP address for the DSL router, but any specific questions about Ubuntu should be answered.
- If you have an Ethernet modem instead of a router, you can use the PPPOECONF command and the wizard will guide you through all the steps to configure your PPPoE connection.
- If you have a Live CD, try booting from it. If it successfully configures the network connection, open System-> Administration-> Networking and write down the settings. Reboot with installation and apply these settings - they should work.
- These tips depend on the DSL router you get from your ISP. Some of them do not have an IP address and a different configuration method is required. Always check with your ISP to find out the best way to configure it without installing additional software.
- All internet companies are different. If these steps don't work, contact your service provider and ask if there is a way other than their configuration program to set up your DSL. If necessary, contact your ISP's Level 2 support or equivalent for a higher level of technical support.
