I ve got the following situation here.

  1. I am in Japan
  2. My girlfriend signed an internet contract with NTT "FLET" and I want to connect to that before my neighbour finds out how to set up a password on his WIFI.
  3. I am using Ubuntu, and the guy on the service line never heard of Ubuntu before.
  4. I ve got some kind of router that doesnt even have a reset button. I followed the companys instruction until it came up to insert and install a CD, which is of course not working for Ubuntu.

I tried to manually edit the DSL but it only comes up again and again asking me the Login data, Password etc. and doesnt connect in the end.

Obviously it keeps trying to connect. Each 30 sec I get a popup saying that the wired internet is disconnected. This however just happened after I followed a link among the replies here that stated this command might work.

sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

change the line managed=false to managed=true

Save, stop and start network manager:

sudo service network-manager restart.

Which it didn't

That s what I get for ifconfig

@wallalone if you're using a pivate wifi without the consente of your neighbour, I pretty sure it's illegal in almost every country in the world, concerning your problem, what is the type of connection ? does the box just sympli offers a dhcp connection ? –  Kiwy Mar 13 at 8:20
    
well as a nice saying from my home country says: legal, illegal, scheissegal... I will however refrain from misusing it. I just want internet on my own. We didnt sign that contract in vain. However, concerning the type of connection, I am not quite sure, it s all in Japanese. But it might have something to do with DSL and pppoe. –  Wallone Mar 16 at 14:32
