Pres. It's an external modem hooked up to a serial port it sees it as ttyy0 on Com 1. Its dialing alright and the ISP is picking up then it drops me.
Peacedog, Thanks for that link I think I can troubleshoot from there. I called when I was setting it up and the fellow said he thought they authenticated using PAP but he wasn't positive. Need to call again and get a solid answer from them. I think that's my problem not having what I need to get authenticated by my ISP. Thanks for the info guys. Just been doing this for a couple of weeks now and this is the first big problem I've ran into.
