    I did as you suggested Trinitron
    set it back to dialup
    rebooted
    test call
    set to network and entered the network stuff (even if it was there)
    rebooted
    tested

    It still dials the modem and logs in on that call even though it is getting its' data over the network.


    The addresses are now set to:
    Code:
            ip address       = 192.168.16.50
            ip subnet mask   = 255.255.255.0
            ip gateway       = 192.168.16.1
            debug level      = off
            daily call       = network
    Still dials with these network numbers.

    Any ideas anybody why it is dialing?

    Here in the U.S. I have to set my dial prefix to

    ,#401

    to get my (sent to me from UK by fellow Slashdotter:)) TurboNet card to use the intarweb,

    whereas ,#3xx would use an external modem plugged into the 1/8" 3-cond. jack serial port to make the call,

    and ,#2xx would be part of getting it to do PPP over serial.

    In other words, you need something more in the dial prefix than just a pause to get it to use something other than the internal modem.

    Is it different over there?

    TivoTrebor, I feel your pain!! :) I think you are struggling with a problem a few years back I gave up trying to solve. I tried everything I could from the tips in the various forums to get my Turbonet getting the updates on the 'net, but I gave up and stuck to dial up.

    However, like you, I'd now really like to get this working, so as to not load the altEPG phone line, when I don't need to (and for the speed, and I guess, to save myself a little bit of money in call costs).

    I will have another bash at this soon, and let you know if it is the same problem, or something else, and if it is, I hope you've figured it out by then... ;)

    Cheers,

    Matt :)

    I have crippled it!!!! :(

    I set the debug level to max which just seemed to produced loads of output related to the ethernet card. I don't think the problems there anyway.

    I then try setting the debug level to "test". This was a big mistake it has crippled the network interface. It comes up for about 6 seconds then goes down. :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    I will have to pull the disk and put it in a PC and edit the config files.

    I have not yet decided if I will re-image it but there is a lot of pressure to keep the existing recordings.
