Hey guys, just thought I'd mention my input. I had been in communication with Razak sorting out this problem before there was a thread created, so I will post what we are doing for the benefit of the community. After much deliberation, I established that Razak was infact using Dial-up instead of ethernet connections, which is why the trouble was there in the beginning. I have never attempted dial-up in BackTrack, but am just about to look into it now. If there are any others who have already done it, I would appreciate if you post some instructions, as I won't be able to test it without actually having a dial-up account (which I don't have). However, if no one else has, I will endeavor to explore this and come up with an answer, which I shall post here.
i have a router call HomeAcces, if any one think is the router problem, i am going to change it to D-Link.
and i have a broadband connection:adsl connection
i am tring to connect to the internet, i go in to the console, and type ifconfig eth0 up, it said KDE connection established. But why can't i go on to ff, when i go on their, it said server not connected. I just need some help. pls some one, and i have some linux experience now, i am using Ubuntu now.
pls some body some how answer or help me, plsssss.
i am sorry, my connection is not broad band, infact it is vpn or dial up, and i have read some post and i have a question what is wvdial, i have google it but still don't really get what should ido. My connection name is call adsl, PPoE connection, VPN or Dial up, so if any one can me through pls post or pm me.
The commands will be slightly different, ie. you can leave out the command "sudo".

thanks for all the help and suggestions, i have changed my router to d-link broad band and it worked, i used d-link the router and the broad band connection had successfully worked, and now i wrote this post in a linux distro call backtrack3, and thanks for every body, especially phoenix.
No worries. To the rest of you - it may not seem like I've done much on here, but just to clear up any confusion, I helped Razak over MSN before all this, which I believe is why he is thanking me. But yeah, at least it was a router problem, and nothing more sinister.
