How to authorize and connect with a wired network?

Postby houmie on Sun Mar 17, 2013 7:58 am


I have a satellite internet provider that requires username/password for a wired connection.

I can set this connection up successfully under windows but I fail doing it so in Linux.

Under Windows I setup a PPPoE connection and username and password and it works.

In Linux Mint 14 under wired network when I activate 802.1X authentication and use MD5, it doesn't succeed. Could it be that I need a PAP authentication type instead of MD5? Or how do I make it PPPoE friendly?

Many thanks for your advice,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
