IPFire Fails to make ADSL Connection


Have you checked the Link status of you network cable?

If you don’t get a lease it is normal that red0 was disabled.

Check with “ifconfig -a”

go to console and Press ALT+F12 to see the systemlog (or use tail -f /var/log/messages over ssh)


Check the Syslog (/var/log/messages) or in the WebIF (kernel and red)


cat /var/ipfire/ethernet/settings


“eth0: link is not ready” but device is present

Looks like the cable is not connected or it is damaged. (No Link)

You can double check with ethtool.


sudo ethtool eth0
