Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge

1 Answer

Trying to get online with Linux

I have an ADSL2 connection with Optus Australia and have recently installed Ubuntu Linux (Gutsy Gibbon) on a separate drive. Of course, Optus only supplied an installation disk for Windoze. I have managed to get Linux to recognise the net connection and it is picking up my IP but I can't configure the PPPoE to access it as every time I try to run the pppoeconf file to set it up, it returns an error message that it is unable to communicate with the modem and cannot proceed. Any suggestions please

    thanks for trying. I have solved the problem. The IP given on the CD to access the software built into the modem was incorrect. I found the correct IP and reconfigured the setup and all is working perfectly now. It was set to "Optus Bridge" and I changed it to NADT and that fixed it. It also now runs at full maximum speed instead of about 1/4 speed as it was before.

    Little things... All I have to do now is learn how to make linux sit up and dance :p

I use knoppix v3.3 (linux) to test a hardware part (1cd only, not the latest, but the fastest) boot from cd.
http://www.knoppix.org/

Test your system with that first.

Thats just a half part of the problem, but after that you have only 50% left. (I am not a linux expert, but I can use that CD easy)

How to install my veo stingray into ubuntu


Many users are switching over to the Ubuntu operating system, which is a type of Linux distribution, in order to work on their computers. Often people will need to use their webcam in order to meet with others online. Fortunately, you can install most webcams onto Ubuntu, and they will work just as well as they do on Windows or Mac systems

Set up the webcam in a place where you will be able to see your face on the screen. Connect the webcam to your computer. Ubuntu should automatically recognize your camera. Test your camera by using Cheese. Open the console and type "Sudo Apt-Get Install Cheese" then press "Enter." Cheese should then install onto your computer. Run Cheese. If your webcam appears and the image comes in fine, your webcam was configured properly. webcam in ubuntu

How to install linux operating system


Hello
A free software operating system based on Linux was created and it was named Ubuntu. It offers all services needed by ISPs, mail servers, DNS servers, FTP servers, MySQL servers, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, and Firewalls. Red hat, Apache and Ubuntu are Linux software distributors. Ubuntu is widely used because it is free and you don't have to pay any licensing fee. Updates are also available for free and accessible online.
To install Ubuntu Linux software you can use the program "Wubi."
The first thing to do is to download Wubi to your desktop and then run the executable program. Then choose the drive in your computer where you want your installation to go. Wubi will place a file on your local drive. It will use this drive as a virtual hard drive. Most often the C drive is used for this purpose. Choose a bigger installation size to allow installation of other programs and storage of data. Choose your language. Type in your username and then your password for security reasons and for your installation to proceed. You will use this for logging on to your computer, installing programs and making changes to the system. Once you click "Install" Wubi will start to download the installation files. When the installation files have completely been downloaded, you have to reboot. Restart your computer. You'll see on your screen a prompt that asks you to select the operating system that you like-whether you like to boot Ubuntu or Windows. Choose Ubuntu. This will complete the installation of your Ubuntu Linux OS. Another way of installing the Ubuntu Linux software is by using:
An Ubuntu CD installer An Internet connection Everything you need to install Linux comes in one CD that provides a complete working environment. You can get the additional software you will need online for your installation. The available graphical installer makes installation easy and quick. Your computer will have Internet, drawing and graphics applications, and games after Linux has been installed.
Now your computer is ready to work to the max. You'll have it functioning the way you want it and enjoy its features as well. Working on a computer is as much fun as it is functional. You can now browse for information you need, play a variety of games and even listen to your favorite music and watch some videos.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU


I've had the Zen working fine on various versions of Ubuntu - it's worth upgrading though.

I heard the KZenExplorer isn't really supported that much, I tend to use Gnomad2, it seems the option of choice.

Hello there.

Nice to see more people using Linux and Ubuntu. For information on how to share your Ubuntu folder to linux, over file sharing click here

You basically only need to right click the folder you want to share, in Ubuntu, then enable sharing and when prompted to install services, tick the box called 'Install Windows network support'

Hope this helps.

Creative Zen uses MTP which is a Microsoft jobby. Gnomad will allow you to transfer files between Ubuntu and your Zen, and you should be able to find Gnomad under the Add/Remove option in Applications.

I'll make a full walkthrough and add it to my blog later today.

I posted a walkthrough for this on my blog here.

Basically Gnomad2 is the way forward. For anyone new to Linux in general, and Ubuntu specifically, the blog talks you through it. For those that have used it before, you know the drill - Add/Remove Applications, and get Gnomad from the Open Source applications.
