Hi Guys, I have recently applied for a MTNL DSL NU Broadband Plan . Has anybody setup this on a linux box . I have Debian Sarge Distro. I was using the pppoe setup from roaring penguin for my previous ISP (pacenet) . if someone could give me the steps on how to go about it . I plan on using the ethernet card for the connection . also Is it necessary to have your computer and phone in the same room ?.

well i don't think there is much to it. Once the dsl modem is setup u just need to configure the lan card on your linux system.....only dhcp needs to be enabled, that takes care of ip address/subnet mask/gateway/dns servers from the dsl router.

I have a MTNL DSL NU connection.I wish to cross over from Windows to linux,thinking of installing Mandriva.Problem is my ADSL is connected on a USB port,becoz the ADSL doesnt work when connected to the Ethernet port.I have a Intel 915GAV motherboard.I recently ran Knoppix 3.2 from a live CD and my onboard sound, ethernet card were not even detected.So, I,now, want to know if there is any way of knowing whether my ADSL will work on Mandriva when I have installed it on my Barracuda hard disk?
