Connect to the Internet with Modem - Fedora 7

I just installed Fedora 7. I use an external modem to get online. I edited wvdial.conf to enter my ISP info. I seem to be connecting to my ISP, but when I start Firefox I can't get any web pages. Am I missing the boat on something really silly? Firewall and SE Linux are disabled. "direct connection to internet" selected in Network menu.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry to trouble anyone. I've solved it. I did not have an entry for the modem under "Network".
