    Mandrake 9.2 internet problem

    Pleas help me !

    I have installed Mandrake 9.2. At the installation I have configured the internet connection. After the installation I could connect to the internet and use kmail as well.
    After restarting the PC I couldn't connect to the internet.
    Linux detects correctly that the connection type is ADSL, but it doesn't connect to the internet.

    I have reconfigured the connection.

    It sends the message when I try to connect to internet:
    The system doesn't seem to be connected to the internet.
    Try to reconfigure your connection.

    Despite of reconfiguration it can not connect to the internet.

    If I reinstall the system I can again connect to the internet, but after restarting the PC it is again impossible to connect to it.

    How can I solve the problem ?

    what happens when you try to connect.
    do you actually ever get a connection
    do you get any error message
    reinstall the system, you mean linux? you modem drivers? or something else?

    Had the same issues

    logged in as root <---first thing....Second created a profile for the internet connection <----took a while to figure that one out, and then through the control center did the same thing I had been doing through the setup before...Just started working...When I was first having issues was because I was manually setting up the connection...USE THE WIZARD...It worked...Now if I could just figure out how to get to the logs remotely and be able to actually attach to the box remotely (think i locked it down toooooo tight!) I would be happy..
