what do I type at the place for "default: # or name_of_service_provider" in
my ppp.conf file. and also what do I type for the "set ifaddr" field in the
ppp.conf file. and where do I type the IP address for my ISP provider or the
DNS for my ISP provider or the telephone number for my ISP. There has to be
a place where I need to type all this information or else how is the xDSL
modem is going to contact or connect with my ISP. Any help will be helpful.
