View Full Version : [ubuntu] Broadband reconnect

November 27th, 2010, 01:32 PM

I have a doubt..I configured my DSL Connection as every time i switch on the system, the internet connection is switched automatically.

Now as i use it in Laptop, i dont shutdown everytime and i just lock it. So what happens is the internet connection is lost.. To get back the internet connection, i need to restart again..Though it was not a tough process, is there any other solution to workout.

The same happens when power goes off too..

I used Pon dsl-provider command, but the internet connection is not started.

is there any application like in windows i would give connect so it connects.

I hope i was clear

Since you are using pon, in /etc/ppp/options have you enabled the 'persist' option?

Thanks for the reply.

As i am new to linux, i am not sure of what u are asking about.. I just go to the terminal and type pon-dsl provider.
