wvdial problem in fedora

i have a cdma data card to connect to internet. i searched net for how to. and then i edited my wvdial.conf as stated. but the problem is when i do wvdial on terminal, it seems that net has been connected, as it says something about primary dns, secondary dns local ip etc. but i am not able to browse the net. when i pinged google, i got this error "unknown host"
the dialer tool in fedora was no help.

When you say that you pinged google, presumably you tried something like

and not

If you try 'ping-by-ip', does that work (which would indicate a problem resolving the name)?
