eth0 alive but still not browsable using internet-druid for pppoe xdsl (SBC) on RH9
Posted on 2004-08-17
I recently installed Redhat linux 9 on my PC and used a router and modem to connect to SBC DSL.
On booting I got eth0 automatically connected but when I kick off the internet wizard (also called internet-druid) and create the pppoe account using the username and passwd given by SBC and click the activate button the pppoe xdsl node stayed inactive.
Next thing i myself would check is /etc/resolv.conf to see if the DNS IP for San Francisco are set there.
Would like to solicit some advice from experts on this problem!
