Okay Im running mandrake 9.1 with an Athlon 2200XP processor. I do have a winmodem but have already found the correct rpm needed for it to work under linux from linmodems.org. The problem isnt with the modem working because it seems to. But the problem lies with even though it connects and my pass and username are authenitcated nothing goes anywhere. What i mean is that if i try to go to any website I get the error that the host cant be found. And if i try to use gaim it also gives me the same error.

I have tried a couple tutes involving winmodems and have tried kppp, minicom and wvdial to no avail. Any help is appreciated.
BTW my modem is a Lucent Technologies Winmodem
