  1. DSL...how to set for ddbl click and avoid cli

    Hi all
    New (brand spanking) to linux
    I can get online using cli now, but would like to know if there is a
    way to do this with a shortcut and doubleclick. As well, can I set up
    a separate dsl provider that I use when one or the other is down?

    Using Ubuntu 8.04

    Thanks
    Gary

    Backup DSL issue is non-operating system specific.
    My own solution is a load-balancing router (I use a Draytek Vigour 2910VG)
    and 2 Draytek V100 modems which act as a pppoa <-> pppoe bridges for the
    router, so same router can go DSL or Cable without any problems or "double NAT"
    issues.

    You can specify both broadband connection to be active all the time or have the
    back-up connection (Wan2) set to "connect on failure of Wan1" I have mine set
    to route all VOIP traffic over the back-up PAYG dsl connection (Wan2) with
    everything else going over Wan1 main "unlimited" connection.

    Again, getting on-line is down to modem/router and not anything to do with the
    OS you are using.
