i am having problems setting up my Speedtouch 510 ADSL modem/router.i had no problems with the USB modems of Alcatel/Thomson, but this one is different. it connects to my ethernet card and i have no clue how to connect to internet. the modem's IP is set to 10.0.0.138 & mine should be 10.0.0.140 i read somewhere that i need pptp in order to make it work? did anyone manage to make this thing work. are there packages for pptp? any help will be appreciated.
thanks a lot.
Did you installed the drivers? (pacman -S speedtouch)
Also there is a pptpclient PKGBUILD in AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?d … s=1&ID=287
Those are only for the user-mode USB modem drivers, so that won't work.
Reading the specs it is also a dhcp server, so just use a normal ethernet setup with dhcp. Any ADSL setup needed must be done on the modem, probably through the webinterface.
thanks for your help guys,
here is what i did so far.this is my setup in rc.conf:
eth0 10.0.0.140 netmask 255.255.255.0
i installed pptpclient & set up the password in /etc/ppp/*-secrets.
now i can ping 10.0.0.140 & 10.0.0.138. when i try to connect through
it seems fine,but then i have no internet access.
i have no clue how to use the modem as dhcp server.
i hope this helps you,so you can help me!
Your ISP should have information on how you can connect. PPTP isn't used that much, and hopefully you don't need it. Your modem has a webinterface, go to http://10.0.0.138 and configure your ADSL. You don't have to do anything else than connecting to the modem on your Arch pc, the other configuration must be done on the modem.
