Unhappy Internet Connection Problem with KInternet


Guys,
I'm trying to connect to the internet using the KInternet application in SuSE 9.1 but after a while the connection terminates and the modem disconects.

I have to mention that both my modem and my internet account works perfectly under windows.

Is ther a setting that I must do in the application's configuration?

KInternet seems to be the only connectivity tool under SuSE 9.1 Personal. Do you know another way or tool that I can use to connect to the Net?

Cheers,
Faethon

Dialup or broadband?
Have the drivers installed? Properly?

Unfortunately, this is irrelevant.
Another tool - might try KPPP - although I dont think SuSE has it

Dial up.
I suppose that the drivers have been installed correctly, yes.
Kppp works but SuSE 9.1 Personal doesn't provided anymore.

Download/Install it from here
Those aren't distro-specific (some of them) - one of them might work.

Thanks my friend, I will try it.
Actually I was trying to install it few minutes ago. I downloaded the kppp professional from the KDE site but I get a diff file out of the tar which I don't know how to install it.
I'm gonna try the rpm version now.
Thanks again
