    I am using paradiyne router. this router is connect through a Ethernet Lan card by my PC for connecting me to Link dot Net. I am not using any dialer for connecting to this internet. As i start my PC my internet connection start working in Windows XP Professional. Help line agent of my internet provider don't know how to configure there serves in Ubuntu.

    While in Windows xp, help line agent of that company helped me in changing IP and DNS settings in Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box. The IP and DNS setting I use to connect to my Internet are shown in the following figures.





    After these settings my broad band Internet service works smoothly on my Windows XP Professional PC. Now i wanna configure it in Ubuntu as well.

    go to system->administration->network-> eth0 properties->Select Static ip( instead of roaming mode or dhcp).. and as ip address enter 192.168.1.10 .. gateway as 192.168.1.1 ..click on ok.. and close all windows.. you might need to reboot.. post results after this
