Hi everyone, I am French and I just arrived in California. I am using a FC5 distrib on my computer and I would like to get a High Speed Internet connection like this proposed by AT&T with an External ADSL Ethernet Modem.But At&T claims that other distrib than Windows or Mac are not supported for their DSL connection. :-(Could I get some advices for the best solution for high speed internet with FC5?
Tell AT&T to go and fsck themselves. Order DSL service from Speakeasy -- http://www.speakeasy.net/home/lineshare/You'll get real Internet access, with a static IP address, and not some half-baked PPPoE, or DHCP crap you'll get from AT&T and other make-believe Internet providers.
They'll give you an IP address, netmask, and DNS settings. Plug that in when you're installing FC5, and you're done.
With a static IP address you'll be able to run your own web and mail server, something that you won't be able to do with telco toy DSL service.
