Old-timers may remember I asked about this a couple of years ago,
allthough I used Windows for the Internet connection...
Well, I've finally managed to get my ADSL connection working with the
speedbundle-1.0.tar.gz and the linux-2.6.0-test5 speedtch module (yes I
have the USB Alcatel 330). It requires the modem's firmware to be
downloaded to the modem and a patched pppd. Connection is made via ATM
and seems very reliable now that it's up for about a day.
Anyway, I've copied & pasted the "Masquerading router" script from BLFS
for some basic firewalling and to allow the networked Windows laptop to
connect via my machine. But I can't get it to work...!
#ip route show
22.214.171.124 dev ppp0 proto kernel scope link src 126.96.36.199
192.168.0.0/24 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.0.2
default via 188.8.131.52 dev ppp0
The windows XP box has a static IP at 192.168.0.3, default gateway + DNS
server point to 192.168.0.2 (the LFS box). But when it tries to access
the internet, it just says "blah could not be found".
Can anybody help me?
