Problem with wvdial


Hi ... recently i install debian in my computer but since i can't configure my internet connection. I'm using wvdial to connect my computer and this is the output of the program:
debian:/home/mauricio/pctel-0.9.7-9# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ

--> remote IP address 164.77.137.2
--> primary DNS address 200.72.1.5
--> secondary DNS address 200.72.1.11
after this i type

debian:~$ping www.linux.org

and nothing hapend. By the way i got a PCTel Inc HSP MicroModem 56 (it's a winmodem of course). Please if you see something wrong o weird in the wvdial's output tell me please. For additional information just ask.

Already thanks!

that day when i test drive with debian i also meet such kind of problem
after i manage to remove the

sl0 Link encap:Serial Line IP
inet addr:192.168.0.1 P-t-P:192.168.0.2 Mask:255.255.255.255
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1492 Metric:1

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:10

then everything turns fine
hope this may help

in the wvdial's output there is something weird, look the line:
[...]
Async interface address is unnumbered astEthernet0)
[...]
i don't understand why that line appears

I think that your default route is wrong. Can you run "route" and post your Kernel IP routing table??.

Best regards

Also, those DNS servers arent working. At least for me they are not. Try and ping 198.182.196.56. If you can ping that, then it is a dns issue. If you cant even ping IP's, then it is something else.

Using command line pppd or wvdial you might want to look at /etc/ppp/resolve.conf

if the nameservers are updating there on connect then make the file a link to /etc/resolv.conf

ln -sf /etc/resolv.conf /etc/ppp/resolv.conf

If they are not then be sure to add PEERDNS=yes to the options
