    Question How to connect BSNL broadband in Ubuntu 11.04?

    Hi all,
    My laptop is Toshiba Satellite L640. I was initially using ubuntu 10.10, in which i configured bsnl broadband as a dsl connection and configured the port using "sudo pppoeconf" command. It was working fine. Few days back I upgraded to 11.04 and net got disconnected after that. I am unable to configure and connect as before. Here are some outputs that could be useful. Can someone help me on this???

    Re: How to connect BSNL broadband in Ubuntu 11.04?

    1)Are you using wired?wireless? or both?Can you post the ourput of
    Code:
    sudo dhclient eth0
    when ethernet cable is connected.
    pppoeconf command is used when your modem is in bridge mode.It is always better to configure the modem in pppoe mode for an always ON connection
