Hello all,

I moved about 10 months ago, and well I never checked to see if cable or DSL was available at the new place (itís a good thing I will only be at this address for another 3 to 4 months). Well what I want to know what is the best dialup ISP with Linux or to be more a little more detailed what is a good dialup ISP for Suse 9.0?

Thanks

It does matter sometimes, if your ISP is using MS-CHAP or something like that for authentication. Make sure u call the ISP and ask them what kind of authentication they use, if its PAP or CHAP you are fine. Also, they need to support PPP. If they do, dont forget to get the DNS information from them.

No, netzero uses a client to connect to the internet and they do not have a linux client so it will not work.

i have had several isp's & have found out the more expensive are no better than the cheap ones. I could not get www.copper.net ($10/mo) to work with linux so i switched over to www.highstream.net ($9/mo) over a year ago & have been very happy with it. The instructions needed to configure for linux are on the website. I highly recommend it also because it is the fastest at loading web pages i have ever had in my 4 years online. As a backup isp on my Windows computer i use access4free, i don't know if it works for linux. I rarely get disconnected with highstream.net. They did have a couple bad weeks with alot of disconnects but they are rare. Very happy with them.
