I have an old PC which I want to use for internet browsing. I tried using Puppy Linux (version 4.3.1) for the same but have not been able to connect.
I connect via PPPoE. My network card is RTL 8029b which is automatically detected by Puppy Linux. However, the LED indicator on the MODEM designating LAN connectivity stays off. This post is being typed from the same PC running XP, so there are no connection issues.
I am a complete newbie with Linux. Can somebody point me to instructions? I will be willing to give any more information if required.
My modem is a Huewei Smartax MT 882
