Can't connect to internet using RedHat 9.

Hello. I have a Westell DSL modem connected to my computer through an ethernet card. But for some reason --probably due to my ignorance-- i haven't been able to successfuly connect Redhat 9 to the internet.

I've fallowed the Documentations instructions step by step of how to connect to the internet using a DSL modem, but when i try to 'activate the connection', i always get a message saying that connection had failed or was unseccessful.

With all this said. Can anyone explain with a similar set up or with the knowledge of how to, explaim me, how they were able to connect to the internet or what command is needed to be type in the terminal to start the connection or anything?

Thanks in advantage.
