Connecting TMNet Streamyx Broadband while using Ubuntu

I write this because people have been sending me questions regarding how to connect streamyx broadband service on Ubuntu Linux. IMHO, this thing happened for two reasons

  1. Ubuntu has been shipping GNU/Linux for free
  2. Ubuntu doesn’t provide obvious way to connect to broadband

OK now, just cross your finger, open a gnome-terminal, and type :
$ sudo pppoeconf

and follow the step-by-step screenshot! Heh, i’m not being lazy to type the rest of the guide, I just don’t know how to write a proper one!

  6. rromie,

    Any broadband modem will work with Ubuntu (and the rest of GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, etc), as long as it is not a USB broadband modem.

    Pick a modem that use RJ45 connector, the one that plugged right to the network card, and you’ll be fine :)

    If you dont have a network card, then you better get a network card, typical price is RM25-RM45 (generic rtl-8139 type)

  7. Nice guide, I have tried Ubuntu too. However main drawback is that I haven’t got broadband yet, hence the apt-get took hours. Now I’m considering to get broadband, can you recomment a modem that will work in ubuntu? Thanks.
