Hello Giampaolo, Thank you for the information. Since my file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 contains the line LINUX_PLUGIN=pppoatm.so, the problem is that the file is simply not invoked? It explains why the module pppoatm is never loaded automatically. Where does one invoke the line /usr/sbin/pppd unit 0 user xxxxx remotename ppp0 linkname ppp0 defaultroute persist maxfail 0 holdoff 30 ipcp-accept-remote lcp-echo-interval 12 lcp-echo-failure 5 plugin passwordfd.so passwordfd 3 connect true plugin pppoatm.so vc-encaps 0.8.35 ? > > Check that this is your case. > > >> >> ...omissis... >> >> Things are certainly more easy with OpenSuSE and Mandriva. > > Thank you for the information: I didn't know OpenSuSE and Mandriva did > support pppoatm.

The problem is the firmware, which is not loaded automatically (though Mandriva Ppowerpack seems to see to this too). But once the ADSL line is up, the configuration via a gui is very straightforward under both OpenSuse and Mandriva. Now I must admit that this is my first try wth Fedora and the installation DVD seems to be a bit buggy. My experiences with Ubuntu are not all to pleasant too. In fact someone had to write explicitly an usbadslmodemmanager package to get things going there.
