Alcatel Speedtouch 330

I am completely new to these forums. Over the weekend I have acquired the infamous Alcatel Speedtouch 330 USB Modem and am trying to get it working under Vector Linux ( A slackware variant). I am sorry for yet another alcatel thread but i have tried everything else.

I have had the modem working perfectly under mandrake 9.1. However, when trying to install it in Vector I have had some problems. I have succesfully installed the Benoit Papillault's linux speedtouch drivers and have followed all the instructions on the site.

I have managed to load the microcode and the modem falshes sucessfully and the modem does connect with 'pppd call adsl'. However I cannot seem to connect to any websites using mozilla. Here is the output from running 'ifconfig ppp0' MORE than 20 seconds after running 'pppd call adsl'.

bash-2.05b# /usr/local/sbin/modem_run -m -f /usr/local/lib/mgmt.o

bash-2.05b# pppd call adsl

bash-2.05b# ifconfig ppp0
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr: P-t-P: Mask:
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
RX bytes:3558 (3.4 Kb) TX bytes:54 (54.0 b)

My chap-Secrets, pap-Secrets, options and adsl are all set up correctly as far as I can gather. I have also created a symbolic link in /etc/ from /etc/ppp/resolve.conf

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

I have read to do this somewhere.

I hope someone can help me. I have given as much information as I can think of. I have searched the internet many times and found nothing.
