if you are using ppp, then issue the following command: /sbin/route -add net default ppp0 provided that it is your only modem connection.
ask your isp the ip address of the dns server, add the following line in your /etc/resolv.conf file:
nameserver your_isp_dns_server_ip_address
check your /etc/host.conf file, it should be like this
order hosts, bind
multi on
There is no reason why this would not work.

Thanks my friend..

i got connected as directed by.u and also under stood that the problem was the default gateway which it was taking to be from the eth0...

so it worked other way also when i tried by issuing the command
ifdown eth0 and just connected
but now i have the doubt that if i use the modem connection and want to connect thru other linux m/c's thru the network then how should i configure...?

Thanks in advance...
