Hi Guys

I installed Ximian Evolution on SUSE 9 personal all looked okay I sent a test email it worked I then rebooted my system to see if my ADSL still work and it did surf the web for a bit then rebooted again internet still worked so shutdown. The next day started my system no internet as i connect through billion 4 port ADSL router I powered it off and on no go. Now as I am new to Linux and still have heaps to learn I checked some online forums and doc's but have not found any idea's or help with this problem. I like SUSE and have found it very good OS but I have checked all the network settings and all are the same as before Evolution was installed. I know I have over looked something and yes I have my internet set for direct Connection not as ADSL modem as I found needed to be set to LAN. Any ideas for this newbie as until I fix this it's windows for the net for now.

Do you use PPPOE to connect to the internet?

If so, you have to install the adsl modem.

Is your modem ethernet or USB?

Do you have a external cable/dsl router, or is the computer conencted directly to the modem to the phone line?

Hi Guys

Yep modem is installed it's a external billion 5100 4- port router pluged into my network card and phone line and PPPOE is set, but this is the strange thing I started Linux system and the internet is back up now no changes have been made from yesterday The only thing I can say that has changed is the router was left powered on. If anyone has had this happen before ? and I was online with window yesterday so I dont think it was ISP problem or a problem with the Router thanks for the quick post.

I meant to say that if you use PPPOE .... AND IF the ADSL modem is connected directly to the Linux PC, then you have to install the modem in linux.

If you have a router between you and the modem, you only need to install a normal LAN connection ... since you are connected to an ethernet port on the router and it is doing the PPPOE.

Glad you got it working.
