    How to create a wireless DSL connection in Ubuntu

    Hi All,

    Under DSL tab in network connection we can create DSL connections, but they only allow wired connections(eth0). I need to connect using wireless connection(wlan0). I migrated to Ubuntu recently. With windows I was able to connect with wireless connection. I'm sure there is a way to achieve this in Ubuntu as well. Greatly appreciate if somebody can help..

    I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 (using since 9.10)

    Please try this
    1)Run
    Code:
    sudo pppoeconf wlan0
    to configure DSL via wifi .Follow instructions.
    2)Backup your /etc/network/interfaces
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.bak
    3) Now edit /etc/network/interfaces using
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    so that it contains only these two lines
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    To connect DSL run
    Code:
    sudo pon dsl-provider
    To disconnect use
    Code:
    sudo poff dsl-provider

    Thank you very much for the quick response.

    I followed your instructions. After running

    sudo pppoeconf wlan0

    my /etc/network/interfaces file looked like following;

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    iface dsl-provider inet ppp
    pre-up /sbin/ifconfig wlan0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
    provider dsl-provider

    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet manual

    So I edited it as you had mentioned. After that when I run

    sudo pon dsl-provider

    I got

    Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
    RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.8p compiled against pppd 2.4.5

    How can I make sure I got the connection?

    ifconfig -a

    gives me nothing about a DSL connection.

    Then it should work.Please post the contents of
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf
    You may try editing this file so that it reads only
    Code:
    nameserver 4.2.2.1
    save and try if pages are loading
