Hi ,

First verify if ur connected to the internet ..... do ifconfig and u should see pppd daemon up an running ( if ur connected)
u should see the /var/log/messages file for reasons why u were not able to connect to the internet.


If ur not able to connect then write to me at vipulmb@onebox.com. with details about the tings u tried and the error messages u were getting and so on.

Regards ,
Xanthium.
