I set up the driver for my lan card ... it worked ... I could ping my own ip ... then I set up my own ip address ... I could ping the sify gateway, so I @$$ume the adapter is working fine :)But when I use the sifyconnect application, I enter my username and [email protected]$$word, but it just stalls after that ... I can just exit using the CTRL+C combination ... can any1 help me here?

have not tried the sify broadband client for linux till now. but i think the indian linux community has released its own version of linux client that works better than the official version. i will try to find it out. :)

It would be great if you could find out ... I tried without success ... btw, i'll try setting up the normal client for now, but I have a small query ... in the netconf section of linuxconf ... I entered my ip, subnet mask in the Basic host information, and my DNS search order in the appropriate section, but where do I enter my gateway ip? Sorry for the n00b question but there isn't much I know about networking or linux ...

Ok ... for the first time I opened up a web page in lynx ... but it was just the local server ... whenever I try to go to google or someplace it gives a "Remote host not found error". Now as I dont run XWindows (I run just in console now) ... I have no other way to check if its working :(

Nah ... even ftp didn't work ... so basically I can just connect to my local server ... must be a problem with their client ... it seems quite buggy ... hmm ... quite like their windows client :)
