SageM Fast 800 Broadband Modem ISP Problems
 
I am running Red Hat 9 using a USB broad band Modem ( using Tiscali as My ISP)

I have followed the instruction in order to connect to ISP and I am having problems.

I have installed the driver and it worked- ifconfig -a indicated adi modem was there under network interfaces.

I edited the adiusbbadsl.conf file ( /etc/analog/) and set "Encapsulation=00000006" ( My ISP uses PPPOA VCMUX )

I also provided "VPI=00000000"
"VCI=00000026"

Which are the correct hex numbers translated from 0,38.

I also edited the chap secrets and Pap secrets with;

Username * Password

And the Options file;

"username"

I have started the connection and it seems to connect as I have a pppo interface listed in ifconfig -a

If I ping the ISP Primary dns I get network unreachable. I used to get a ping back before I removed the network card from the PC, but since this is a USB and not ethernet modem it should not matter. and anyway the NIC was not connected to anything.

anyone have any ideas?

You have to modify file /etc/resolv.conf

it should have a line:

nameserver 212.23.23.45

where the number should be your ISP DNS server which is generally the fastest one available for your case

note:
in your case before the modifications the ping of an physical address should work, only the www.adresses.com won't work

feedback the results
