Madriva Linux Dial up problem
Hi I am a complete n00b here, but need help if you can. I have installed three versions of Linux and settled on Mandriva. I have tried various different dial up modems, and have even bought an external zoom serial modem. Linux recognized the modem, but when it dialed out it said it appears you are not connected.
I have set up a kppp session, and the modem dials out, and connects, but when ever I try to access web pages it says it cant, and I can't ping web sites either. Yet I know its authenticating cause it says there was a problem if I put in the wrong password. I have tried setting up DNS in the resolv.conf and am now comepletely stuck... any ideas please? would be most grateful.
