    There are two modes of connecting in BSNL Broadband.

    1) U double click an icon and get connected. If u establish connection like this, then u are said to be in bridged mode. In this case the OS authenticates your username/password

    2) U simply switch on the modem and u get connected without double clicking any icons. If u establish connection like this, then u are in PPPoE or router mode. In this case the router authenticates your username/password.

    If u configure your connection to work in PPPoE mode, then u can do minimal configuration in Linux and get connected easily.

    Which mode u want to configure? pppoe or bridge. If pppoe is considered configure ur modem first. For that 1st assign ip address to ur ehthernet port (usually eth0). This u can do from gui (administration->network) or u can open the file ifcfg-eth0 found in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Once ip is assigned u can fire firefox or any browser and using 192.168.1.1 configure the modem in pppoe. (not necessary if it is already confired under windows). Once the ethernet and modem are configured u should be able to use the internet.

    If bridge mode is considered u can set up the same by running rp-pppoe (file attached in case not already available in ur distro.

    NOTE I use mandriva 2008 (redhat based simple configuration like win)

    if you wish to have a static ip address then yes.. if not leaving it to DHCP is good enough..
    and yes ppoe mode is always better in linux..
