    I need to connect multiple computers to the internet through one computer using a UMTS modem (USB 3g dongle on

    I have followed the instructions on the following link and still had problems:

    Namely:– (so the forma might need updating ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    The Problem

      I have added the USB modem to the list of networks. It has connected and the auto-update page updates with dates from September 2011. [PPP0 on USB0]
      (I notice in the log file that it says it is defulting to ip

      I have chosen “yes” to the boxes suggested (connect automatically and default route)

      My other computer ( ) is connected to ETH00 (ZSbox of ip )

    [anyone know where im going wrong?]

    I have also trolled through the forum and not found much to help me.

    Thanks in Advance


    If it’s connecting and updating the text then that’s the hard bit done ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Have you set the gateway in ZS to and made sure that your client is using this as it’s GW and has the correct DNS.
    I didn’t have any issues getting a three dongle running (other than needing to add the dongle settings to the config file. Just gave the zeroshell box an ip, set this as the gateway, set the dhcp up and then added the ppp0 device. In the logs I’m sure it assigns but states it won’t replace the existing gateway.


    And just to clarify, what should the client DNS be set to, ( ?


    you can either set DNS to run through zeroshell, or set it to google/openDNS is google is openDNS

    Might be worth having a quick read up on basic networking, like NAT, Gateways, Subnets, DNS and so on as this will make what zeroshell is doing a lot easier to understand and help you troubleshoot.
