Connectivity issues

Postby aaronsasmor on Sat Apr 20, 2013 12:40 am

Hello: My name is Aaron and I have just become a Linux user. I am in China so few people know much about it. I teach English at a private college and the IT fellows here have not been able to help me solve a connectivity problem. In order to use the college wired connection to the internet I have to go through the local college intranet. This I can do through the normal "wired" connection set up. However, to get to the internet I have to use an (adsl or dsl) set up. It seems that linux will only allow one connection at a time. Can someone direct me to the proper forum for the answer to this problem. Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
