    ppp and my browser


    I have setup ppp and my connection works perfectly ie: dials up and does everything its suppossed to.
    But the problem comes when i try to use my browser, it just doesnt work, no data gets sent through my modem and nothing gets received (the lights on my modem dont flicker the way they should)
    so somehow my browser isnt sending its requests to the right place. I have used netscape, konqueror and neither work.

    this is a bit of a mistery to me! whats the catch?

    cheers

    I also did another: ping 202.27.184.3 which is my isps dns server
    and at the same time i had a look at my ethernet card's lights and the transmit light is flicking away sending the packets.

    it seems when i am pinging, the request is going to my ethernet card instead of to my modem (via the com port which it should be doing!)

    any ideas?
