How to setup ADSL access?

Setting up ADSL connection is not yet fully supported under LinuxMCE. But there is a relatively simple procedure to get it up and running. I'm posting my notes (hopefully didn't forget anything important)...
- setup two network cards as normally
- run pppconfig (follow instructions on screen)
- go into database - this is the SQL query for the database to see the current setting:
select * from Device_DeviceData where FK_Device=1 and FK_DeviceData=32;
the data will look something like this:
you'll have to change the proper ethX in that string (eth1 in my case) with ppp0
4. put /etc/init.d/start_pppoe.sh and link it to /etc/rc2.d/S10start_pppoe
Content of start_pppoe.sh :
#!/bin/bash export PATH="/usr/pluto/bin:$PATH" . /usr/pluto/bin/pluto.func if -e /usr/pluto/install/.notdone ; then exit 1 fi Logging "server" "1" "$0" "Running 'start_pppoe.sh' ( \"/etc/init.d/start_pppoe.sh\" )" ifconfig eth1 up pon dsl-provider
4.a Alternative: Instead of doing 4 you can do following:
You could also simply append two lines
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up /usr/bin/pon dsl-provider
at the end of /etc/init.d/networking before "exit(0)", but I guess this will be overwritten by LinuxMCE. For me it works.
I hope that this will soon be easier to setup over web-admin page.
