Unhappy My modem dials-up, connects, but I can't browse

Hello I'm a newbie

I experinced a problem with my Internet connection.
I could connect to the Internet by means of dial-up but when I opened the browser nothing happened.
What could be wrong?
I probed this on both a RedHat 5.2 (kernel 2.0.x?) with the build-in Netscape and after that with RedHat 7.1 with the build-in Konkeror.
Thank you very much for your help.
Best regards

First, how you got it work or how you know it's working?

make sure it's working right, then check your broswer it's set to direct connection.
