    Hi there
    I am using a Precise Puppy(LXPUP) on my laptop for the last few days
    I am quite amazed with the speed and responsiveness while using it.

    However I have a problem
    I can't for the life of me set up my DSL Broadband Connection(from BSNL India) for use with this OS.
    But I never did face any problems setting up my DSL connection on Lubuntu, ZorinOS, Mint and Windows 7, XP.
    all I am ever accustomed to do is give my username and password and the DSL connection is set up. :D

    My ISP(BSNL India) only gave me the following information
    User ID---- "id<myphonenum>_ecdrid"
    and an external Modem which connects to my PC via a Lan Port

    Here is what I do with Puppy
    1)Probe for my modem with Pupdial Internet Dialer (Puppy says, "Success the modem responds as ttySL0") exit dialer

    2)Start Wired/Wireless LAN---> Simple Network Wizard---->Click on eth0---->Puppy says "Successful connection to wired network 'eth0'.....Tick on set SNS as Default network tool"

    3)so I guess my Modem is being recognized and so is the Ethernet port

    4)Now I try and set up my Broadband connection using the "Roaring Penguin PPPoE"
    Give my user name, password, set interface to eth0(default), leave DNS info to blank, set firewall to 0.
    and after that is set up I finally press "Start", the PPPoE text file that pops up says that the connection is successful, however I can't browse the Internet.

    Please help me find a viable solution to this problem guys.
    if you need any info just ask

    did you put DNS without DNS it work work even get connected

    best thing what i do is i set your modem as router easy way work on all systems

    2n way is set your modem as bridge mode and then make a dialer on system

    which you are doing also you need to give DNS as well

    but in this you have to set everything for every OS you use :)

    set your modem as router you dont need to dial everytime if you need help please ask me
