I had Pardus 2011 x 64 successfully installed on this machine and connected with no problems. For various reasons I then wiped the drive, installed first Windows 7 x 32 and then Pardus 2011 x 64 as a dual boot.  Both processes were without fault.  Windows connects fine but Pardus does not.  On first run I entered my DSL details as required but on saving, the tray icon turned to a red cross and all options apart from VPN are now greyed out in the Network Manager.  Also tried a live Mint disc and this connects fine too.

Any ideas please?

Any ideas please?
Maybe System Settings > Network Settings > Network Connections > select Wired > select   your Connetion (interface) > Edit > ...
will do the trick Grin
( do not forget to mark "Connect automatically")

Thanks for responding but there is nothing there.  Everything is greyed out and therefore cannot be selected.  It was all there after I completed the install and it accepted my details, then on saving everything disappeared.

This bug. http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=16436 In the release, there is no package pptp-client. Connect to networks VPN (PPTP) is not possible.

Download and install this package. http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/stable/i686/pptpclient-1.7.2-6-p11-i686.pisi

If and when this fails to connect to the Internet - You can try this script, it also contains a binary pptpclient http://cables.org.il/ik/cable.tar.gz

It's my fault, I rarely read this forum, I think could help immediately. Sad

Thank you for posting this but I can't afford to install again and not be able to connect, and I'm not proficient enough with Linux to explore other options. 

Funnily enough, the latest KDE live versions of Fedora, Suse and Kubuntu all behave the same.  Gnome based distros all connect without issue as does the test version of Mageia and the KDE versions of PCLinuxOS and Mandriva 2010, so it looks like back to Mandriva for a while.

I guess this will probably be solved in time with some updates. And I suppose Pardus 2011.1 is not so far away to:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardus_%28operating_system%29#Release_history

Maybe one or two months if look at previous releases.
Then you could try Pardus again. Or look how the bug report progress.

(If you want add some comments there to)
