Hi,

I'm trying to set up an ADSL connection in Mandrake 9.1.

I can't ping to the (Ethernet) ADSL modem and suspect I've a routing
problem.

I've a single, on-board Ethernet card, connected to the ADSL "modem" (ECI
270 PR).

It's a dual-boot system, and, as the ADSL works under WinXP, I've extracted
from it the following parameters.:

1.. Eth card IP (static): 10.200.1.1 (mask 255.0.0.0).
2.. Gateway 192.117.102.51


I've set up these parameters in Linux yet I can't ping my modem (Response:
destination host unreachable). My ISP claims the modem IP should be
192.168.1.1 but I can't ping to this IP either. Pinging to 192.117.102.51
doesn't go through either.





I'd appreciate your help.



Thanks in advance.

to solve my problem.
