I've read a lot about it on the Web, but I've only become more confused with each thing I've read. I have written to the GRML list but haven't heard anything.
I think you'll need to provide more details before anyone can help
you. Who is your internet provider? What modem, brand/model? What type
of connection does your provider use, bridged, pppoe/pppoa?
Since grml couldn't establish the connection automatically, I'm
guessing very likely that your modem doesn't hand out dynamic
addresses. In that case, I'd suggest installing the pppoe package
apt-get install pppoe
and reading /usr/share/doc/pppoe/README.DEBIAN.gz, which will tell you
what to do to configure it. This suggestion is tentative, since I
don't have answers to any of the above questions.
