Modem Data Send/Receive Problem

Ubuntu 7.04. Dialup Modem connects but won't send or receive data. Modem works in XP. Tried using three different modems, 2 internal and one external. They all connect to ISP but will not load a web page, etc.
Any ideas???

I've not used fiesty and don't know the software you used to connect, but in a situation like this, one of the things to check is whether you have a DNS problem. Connect to the Internet, and, in sequence, try these three ping commands:

ping localhost
If the first two commands work and the third one doesn't, then you have a DNS problem. The ping is "successful" if you start getting a series of lines similar to this one:

64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=54 time=196.315 msec
These will continue until you manually stop the command with a ctrl-C.
