Network Configuration problem



This morning I was able to access the Internet from both computers (RH7.2 and Win98) at home using LinkSys DSL router (BEFSR41).
Then I decided to change some very trivial things like hostname and domain name from RH network configurator. Now my RH cannot access the Internet anymore :(


Through the LinkSys router interface, I set up:

- the router IP address 192.168.1.1 (this was the default)
- Obtain an IP Address Automatically (this was the default)
- enabled PPPoE

On my RH7.2 box, I did the following:

- Through Internet Configuration Wizard, I created an xDSL connection using my login name and password to my ISP.
- Through Network Configuration, I set up the local hostname (redhat), domain(WORKGROUP), ip address (192.168.0.1), subnet mask (255.255.255.0), and default gateway (192.168.0.1) for this machine. eth0 is also set up to be activated when computer starts.


- installed PPPoE (downloaded from Roaring Penguin)
- At first, ppp0 started fine when I typed 'adsl-start' and I was able to connect to the Internet. Now I cannot start this anymore. I get an error when booting
Bringing up interface ppp0: ..........TIMED OUT
/usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 194: 2488 Terminated
$CONNECT "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1


My kernet IP routing table looks like this:

Destination    Gateway     Genmask        Flags  Iface
192.168.0.0    0.0.0.0     255.255.255.0  U      eth0
127.0.0.0      0.0.0.0     255.0.0.0      U      lo
0.0.0.0        192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0        UG     eth0


My Win98 is working fine and I am able to connect to the Internet.


I am not sure if I am giving enough info to describe my problem. If I am missing something, please let me know.

Could any of you please give me some hint why my RH box cannot access the Internet anymore? I tried to figure this out by myself. But it is too hot at home w/o AC and I am kind of exhausted after trying all day long today.
