Hi All...

Well I finally broke down and selected Puppy Linux the other day, and burned a live cd to try out.

Although I'm a hardcore Windows XP fan - I love its simplicity. I don't have any problems booting up. But I am experiencing a problem with getting my ADSL modem set up and working. The Version of Puppy I'm using is the current distro (2.13) Perhaps theres something I'm doing wrong.

On the desktop, I clicked Connect and my Intel Pro /100 ethernet card was detected. A test of the connection seems it indicate it is a live connection. DHCP was selected to be automatically configured.
I tried browsing, and nothing happened. From there I went into their PPoE utility to set up my username and password information for my ISP. I tried both ways to get pri and 2nd DNS set up. (Automatic.. and manual input.) When I press the button to start PPoE, I get two green bars... but the sent and rec packets stay at 0 and 0 If I open the browser to surf to a typed in URL - it remains in the Loading state for several mins and nothing happens. There has got to be an easier way to config my Dsl than what I'm doing.

After a little more poking around online I found my solution.
