View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I connect dsl & wired connection with NM?

September 1st, 2010, 05:22 AM
Hello Everyone:

The situation is I have one machine just installed 10.04

yesterday, and I plan to take it as FTP server sharing files

via LAN and WAN as well. But after setting up all network with

Network-Manager, I found that my dsl connection will

disconnect while my wired connection was connected.

my network-manager setting process is:
1.wired tab:
2.DSL tab:
enter the username and password that my ISP gave me.


after my googling

I fix it with pppoeconf and edit the /etc/network/interfaces

auto dsl-provider
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
provider dsl-provider

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static


Because my Ubuntu server has normal user(don't know how

to use Terminal), I want to get all setting done with mouse

clicking by using the default applet.

So, does anybody know how to setup LAN and DSL connection

via Network-Manager only to let them connect at the same
