Well I am very new but I am not a sloutch. Here is the deal I have a dual boot computer windows 2000/ mandrake 9.2.

I run my verizon through a HUB to the dsl modem whish is a westell 2100 I believe.

This is what I know and what I have tried.

Verizon uses PPPOE so I installed and used the PPPoe installer that comes with Mandrake 9.2 dvd that I have.

it seems to connect when I use adsl-status but when I try anything that has to conect to the net nothing seems to connect... (like kmail and koncourer)

My thought is it has something to do with the hub I am not sure why.

I hope some can help I want to swith to linux.
