Unhappy cant conect to the intertnet

I firnally was able to install Linux Xandros 3.0 on my dell inspiron 5100.
Im running windows and linux in the same computer, but i cant conect to the internet using linux.

I tried to manually input my network IP setting also to use the xandros internet wizard but i cant still conect to the internet. Im using dial up.

If it's a Dell, I can guarantee it uses a Winmodem. The difference between a winmodem and real modem is that in a winmodem, everything that can be emulated with the drivers, is. Since Linux doesn't have the drivers, you would have to say your modem doesn't work in Linux.

That said, the OSDN has an answer to everything. Google for linmodem or "winmodem linux". Basically, you need to find out what chipset you modem uses, and get the proper linux driver for that chipset.
