A problem with dial-up connection


I use Fedora core 6 as OS and installed HSF modem that work good. I haven't any problem with hardware. But using kpppd I'm unable to connect the INTERNET. It dials very good but waits a minute nothing happen (time out and %1 may NO CARRIER). using debug as pppd argument is useless. In windows XP I connect without any problem.
Is any pppd arguments needed or still needed configuration? I think hardware is no problem cause I can here modem that dialing!
please help:

I think you're using kppp gui. In kppp select configure and in the 'modem' tab select your modem and press 'query modem'. Let us know the result

well in query modem I got:

ATI: 56000
ATI 1: 255
ATI 2:
ATI 3: hsf (modem package number here)
ATI 4: CONEXANT HSF soft modem
ATI 5: B5
ATI 6:
ATI 7: 255

Note: I can hear modem dialing and when dialing my mobile via kppp, It is ringing so I think modem has no any problem.

Modem seems ok. You sure you have entered your account details correctly in kppp. Also make sure you have all the dependencies that needed by kppp. Is it preinstalled in the os?

Is wvdial working?

Well, wvdialconf works good and can find the modem in /ttySHSFO and in lsmod, hsfmodem items are listed. the account details are correct to. in dialing ISP I can hear the modem trying to connect the ISP but allways lost by timeout. Is any function for kppp argument needed. debuge argument is useless.

I think you meant wvdial is dialling and working properly. If not, try wvdial with sudo or root, as said wvdial needs root or sudoer

Why would he need a router as he is just trying to connect a 'single computer' using a 'dial up' ?

siaswar,

This is the configuration setup. What about the results when the modem is dialled that is, the command 'sudo wvdial'

Also please inform us whether your wvdial is able to connect internet or not

Here is the output for wvdial:
Code:
# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT9712222
--> Waiting for carrier.
ATDT9712222
--> Timed out while dialing.  Trying again.
--> Sending: ATDT9712222
--> Waiting for carrier.
NO CARRIER
ATDT9712222
--> No Carrier!  Trying again.
--> Sending: ATDT9712222
--> Waiting for carrier.
OK
ATDT9712222
BUSY
--> The line is busy. Trying again.
These three expressions (Timed out, No Carrier, Line is busy) happen one after another!

Please follow these steps, we are starting all over again

Connect your modem

Be root, or sudo (for all commands)

Command: wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

Then use any text editor and edit the /etc/wvdial.conf, according to your isp

Command: wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf

I repeated all steps again and again. But the problem is exit.
It seems I should reinstall the linux (A windows style solution!!!) but still I want to challenge it.

good, I really appreciate you for not giving up.

Can you post your wvdial.conf

Also please describe a bit about your isp

As you're using dial-up, make sure your telephone cables are ok. You can test this if you have a windows or other os box, make sure it's fine
