Connecting DSL as DHCP
If your DSL Connection is via DHCP, refer to figure 2.19, protocol selection. When selecting DHCP you may be prompted to insert one of the distributions CD's, probably Disk1 for additional software installation (DHCP client).
Insert the CD and click OK to proceed with the software installation. After all the packages have been installed, again the net card is probed and asks you, do you have another interface? Answer yes or no. I assume no, see figure 2.21 and click next.
Depending on whether you have another NIC or not, the next screen will be the following requiring the necessary information for the connection.
Note. Maximize the screen to see the buttons at the bottom.
Because this is a DHCP connection, you do not need to enter any IP address, just make sure Automatic IP check box is selected. The ISP's server provides the IP address dynamically.
The physical host name is automatically detected; you do not need to enter a Zeroconf host name here.
This is a direct connection, there are no Proxies just click next.
- Next the network needs to be restarted, select yes and
- Click next.
Once the network is restarted, you will receive a congratulation screen.
- Click finish
- Click on Apply or Ok
- Exit the control center
- Restart the system
After restarting the system open the web browser (Mozilla or Konqueror) and enjoy your high-speed connection.
