Broadband Wireless connection

By kotomaditra ·
I'm from Madagascar and I need help with my Internet connection. I can't get access to the Net with linux and I'm using a Broadband Wireless connection (I'm linked with my ISP with antenna.)

Parameters are correct (IP, Mask, DNS) and network cards are detected and working,

But connection doesn't work with any linux distros (FC2, KNOPPIX, Mandriva, etc.) ; with windows XP, there's no problem.

Thanx for your help !

tell linux that your internet connection is a network connection explicitly.

do not tell it you are using a specific device other than the network card.

I've seen someone fighting to get online with a cable dsl connection, as they were trying to configure a network card connected dsl modem as an internal device.

it is a simple network connection unless the modem for the connection is plugged into a slot on the board.

Even I have the same issue while configuring for FC2 distro but after installing the proper drivers everything worked fine.

Follow this link to configure the net

List of DSL modems supported by Linux

hey try to have DHCP with Linux. It may work. And if its not working then just configure your LAN card don't do anything else with Linux. It should work.

Good Luck. Whatever the solution works with you don't forget to share with us.
