Hi everybody,

Somebody here with experiences with adsl-wanadoo-france-speedtouch?

I wanted to help a friend to migrate from WinXP to Linux. Installation of openSUSE 10.2 on his Dell went without any difficulty, but I can't get this !*%# speedtouch "modem" to connect to wanadoo ADSL...

The first problem is already that I don't understand, why a ADSL line needs a "modem" and not a router or at least a ADSL Network Terminator. Well, with XP it kind of works, so I guess wanadoo has a very special kind of ADSL?

So I  went to
http://en.opensuse.org/Speedtouch_330

(and not to http://en.opensuse.org/Speedtouch_330_PPPoE because the above looked shorter and easier :-) )

and went thru the steps described there. Finally I clicked KInternet to connect. Here again I don't understand why I need KInternet, as I used this last time some years ago with my analog modem... However, KInternet recognized the "modem", tried to connect, and then the connection died with the message "a modem hung up the phone (exit code 16)".

So this is all I achieved and after googling for hours now I am competely confused.

I find different information and have no clue, which one I should follow, like, for example, the said Suse-page says VPI/VCI Numbers are 8.67 while http://www.linux-usb.org/SpeedTouch/faq/index.html#q12 says it's 8.35.

AIUI, this information is specific to your ADSL supplier and their equipment. You'll need to find Wanadoo France's technical configuration page, either with google et al, or phone their tech support to find out where it is (or get the information from them). Also have a look at the bumph sent to you when you signed up for your ADSL connection.
