I don't know the FritzBox SI (there are meanwhile so many AVM hardware
devices available), but if it simply acts as the DSL modem and does not
the dial-in (authentication) itself, you then will have to make a PPPoE
connection with Fedora. Use system-config-network and setup xDSL.

As AOL user you _must_ set MSS to 1400, else no traffic will happen. To
do so edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 and set


To when setting up the xDSL activate "synchron PPP".

You will too have to care for specific with username and password. As
you are German please see
