telephone dialup configuration to surf the net


I have managed to connect with telephone dialup. DNS is loaded but I cannot surf the net.

I use openSUSE 10.3 and Linuxant HSF driver for Conexant modem. I should configure the Internet connection?, What Device Type and Module Name?

What error messages do you get when you try to surf the net?

The problem should be that the system does not know it should use the modem to be connected to internet. how I configure the connection?

Then I do not need to configure the network to use internet through the modem?

I remember that had the wireless interface (wlan0) raised but turnned off. Perhaps only I should turn off with 'ifconfig wlan0 down'?, isn't my computer usual and I can't test it.

I do not have a copy of 10.3 but if similar to 10.2 use YaST and install kinternet or the modem dialer gnome. I use the kde so not sure of the names. Once the dialer is installed you can configure your dial internet connection from there. There should also be a driver in your repository for your modem. You can check your modem from clicking on networking in the left panel of YaST and on modem.

The configuration was correct. Only was necessary a patience so that the modem threw to run.

Thanks.
