Do that then, once you are "connected", type:


if you get no packets back, it's a problem with your ppp settings. If 
you do get packets back, type:

ping www.yahoo.com

if you get no packets back, it's your DNS settings. Look at 
/etc/resolv.conf - you should see at least one line like this:

nameserver ip.address.of.nameserver

If you don't add such a line (or two) with valid nameservers. Your ISP 
should give you such settings. If they haven't, you could use:


but only temporarily - it's a Worldcom/MCI nameserver and might not live 

Oh, and set a hostname. (see man hostname).
