Has anyone been able to get QNX Neutrino online with ADSL?  I've looked around the net and tried a few suggestions posted on QNX boards, but I still can't connect.

Specifically, the ADSL I have is with Magma (similar to Sympatico) where your IP and settings are dynamic.

 I am a newbie to QNX so maybe it's something simple I am missing.   Any help is appreciated!

Tried PPPoE (PPP over ethernet)? I dont know it PPPoE is included in QNX from start...
Might be helpful.
Dont know much about qnx either, but if it as simple as in linux, it should be no problems.

I found 6.2 of qnx worked better with a dial up modem than 6.1 might be better to get that if you have 6.1 it seems to be improved . .not sure how to set up the adsl modem though. i have used qnx a little lack of software downloads was the only thing i have found with it. ;-)
I once had an amigaone xe but sold it .

I am using PPPoE, and it is included with Neutrino 6.1.0.  I tried the command line version and get the same type of responses/errors depending on what parameters I give it:

* nothing happens (no output), but when I Ping a site, I get the error: no routing info available (ping ip number)

* the system gives an "unable to configure dhcp error"

* the system complains about the gateway (which is what my isp told me to use)

Question:  what is a Service Name?  Qnx asks for this in the network configuration.

no way, its far more like BSD,FreeBSD,NetBSD,Gentoo or Unix

It took me 4 hours to get my netcard installed so I could use my cablemodem to connect to the internet (all finally worked)
BUT then I made the huge mistake of rebooting....

On the brite side, QNX was smooth and swift and ran mozilla
wanted; NONfunctional A3K keyboard wanted
