    If your modem is correctly set up in your system, you should be able to dial the isp to make a connection. You should be able to hear the modem send the telephone number signals and you should be able to hear the tones exchanged by the two modems for the handshake. If you are not able to do this, then the problem is in the setup of your hardware, drivers, etc.

    If you are able to do this, but are unable to connect in the handshake procedure, research wvdial. At the command line, enter
    Code:
    man wvdial
    to see what is required.

    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better
