The ol-connect and the network module of the Onebase Portal provides options to connect
to different types of Internet
Static IP Network
For connecting to a Static IP network, you need to know your static IP address, gateway, DNS address and optionally Broadcast and Netmask addresses.
If your ethernet driver module is automatically loaded by the kernel, then you should see your ethernet port displayed by the ol-connect program,
if not load the appropatiate ethernet module for your card.
Usually Onebase automatically activates a dynamic or DHCP network on bootup, incase if it is not then find and load your kernel module for your ethernet card and include it
in the /OL-boot/config/rc.setup file.
ADSL with pppoe
This option should be selected only if your network uses pppoe, ol-connect -adsl provides information on how to setup and connect to such a network
If you are using KDE, then use kconnect which is a more sophisticated program, otherwise use: ol-connect -dialup which provides fairly direct information for
connecting to internet. You may have try different port to know at which your Modem is connected.
Use the network module in Onebase Portal for configuring and connecting to a wireless network. You should first install the windows*tm driver for your card using ndiswrapper
if a native linux does not exist.
