what version of Mandrake?

From what I remember of my own tinkering with Mandrake 9.1 and Mandriva 2005 LE it seems that it set itself up on my Actiontec modem. So what it sounds like is that it's a hardware specific problem. Or it's your modem settings itself. Perhaps you could try dialing up your modem (probably 192.168.0.1) and setting it up for use with a non-windows os. Just ideas.
