    How to start [Configure] BSNL Broadband connection on Ubuntu


    Step 1:
    Go to your Network control panel.
    Follow steps : Taskbar >> System >> Administration >> Network.

    Step 2:
    Then click on the Unlock button and then it will ask for Administrative password, Enter your Password. and click Authenticate so that it will unlock the locked features.

    Step 3:
    Click on Wired connection and then its properties, it will show you “Connection setting tab” select “Automatic configuration (DHCP)” from the list and click OK.

    Step 4:
    Select Point to Point connection, and go to its properties. It will pop up the pppo properties.
    Check the “Enable this connection”, and select “PPPoE connection type” and Enter the account data (Username and Password)in specified boxes,

    Step 5:
    Go to Modem tab from same Window, select the Ethernet interface (Generally the eth0)
    Go to option tab select all check boxes. and then OK. and close.

    Now everytime you want to connect to net, just click on LAN Icon on taskbar and go to Dial Up connections and click on Connect to pppOe via modem and get connectiviy.

    So now just start your Firefox and start browsing the internet from your Ubuntu.

    Note: This guide is for LAN connection only, and not for the USB connections as many modem manufacturer doesnt provide drivers for Linux versions.

    Dont u see the two computer icon in the taskbar?

    Also i would advise u to install the latest Ubuntu 8.10, on which ADSL connection setup is really easy..

    U can also checkout How to start [Configure] BSNL Broadband connection [Dataone] on Ubuntu Linux. | TheChetan.com

    I am providing the links so that u may go through them to get an approximate idea of what is happening and to make u understand the basic ideas..

    Well since internet is not configured properly, i doubt whether u will be able to download the update from Ubuntu servers. Else i would suggest downloading it from Get Ubuntu - Download, request a CD, or buy on CD/DVD | Ubuntu

    Default bsnl connection error / ubuntu 8.04 / pppoe

    Hi,

    I tried the 5 steps stated at the beginning of this thread but it has not worked for me. Diagnostic detail:

    * After the five steps, even after trying /etc/init.d/networking restart, I could not connect using ‘Connect to ppp0 via Modem’.
    * Using BSNL DataOne with Siemens C2110 modem
    * Using Ubuntu 8.04
    * Find attached the output of ifconfig, /var/log/messages, /etc/init.d/networking restart...

    Please advise.

    Thanks in advance,
    Prakash

    My blunder: I was giving the wrong password and so, I was getting a ‘CHAP authentication failed’ message in /var/log/messages. Also, I had to enable roaming mode in my office wireless connection.

    I suggest PCLinuxOS/Mandriva for newbies, I was able to connect to net in Ubuntu 8.10 (live CD not installed) without any problem. Why I am suggesting these 2 is the set up (control panel) is very much wizard driven like windows. For people shifting from windows this is very useful and handy. People like me and others already replied to this thread can easily setup the same on any system. But for newbies it is totally a different environment.

    I am using linux for a long time now. I have used almost all the popular distros before Now stick to mandriva as it has all the necessary pkg I wanted and simple to configure. (I have already shifted to linux in both office and home full time. Note: I DON'T PLAY any game except chess). In fact I can use any of the distros but selected mandriva as my children also have no problem in using the same. They use for online games, science, maths, etc. without any problem.

    Most pepole suggest Ubuntu as this even need not be downloaded they will send a CD on request. Of course the CD is enough to do all the day-to-day work as all the necessary software are already present. But configuration is not that easy like mandtiva/pclinuxos (pclinuxos an adaption of mandriva).

    Many think I am forcing mandriva, but I have no such intension but for newbies I recommend these.

    There are different ways to set up .
    1> First try ping your router that is http://192.168.1.1 in the browser.
    2>If you are able to ping then you have to enter your user id and password and do the setting on the router.
    3> Else Find your network icon which is on the right hand side, 2 joined computer icon right click on it . Try giving some static ip to your machine so that you can access your router ,that you can do by right clicking on the network icon then edit connection ,then in the wired tab add your new connection with static IP (do all these thing when your are connected through Ethernet cable)
    4> After this you shold be able to ping your router. If you are able to ping your router then you can able to use your internet .This is how i have done it . I am using ubuntu 8.10 on my laptop and 9.04 on my desktop.
