If you use monitor in redhat-config-network, it should work. It's a bug in 
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-06-02 19:59:26 EDT
Does not work with monitor either.  I can get the connection to work by connecting to my ISP and setting the default route to my ISP and dev 
ppp0.  Used the ip route procedure in bug #64574.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-06-24 09:56:44 EDT
is there any real traffic? can you browse the web? are you really connected?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-06-24 14:27:05 EDT
Yes I am really connected.  After the adsl connection is made I run ifconfig to
get the default gateway for my ppp0 connection.  I then do the following:

/sbin/ip route delete default
/sbin/ip route add default via xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dev ppp0

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the gateway address from ifconfig.
After this, I have access to the internet.

I have no problems doing:
# tcpdump -i ppp0

Hmm... strange..
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2002-06-25 04:50:28 EDT
"cannot get ppp0 to talk to ethernet card" - what do you mean by this? no ppp
over ethernet?
