Dial-up problems

I finally got my modem installed and working. Now my problem is, I can't log on to my ISP. My pppd and modem hangs after the message "Logging on to network". I think I've configured my modem and dialer (kppp) right. Any advice? Aside from kppp, what other programs can i use to dial-up to the internet in KDE?

This might be a problem with your isp, you could try changing to a different one to see if it works then.

If you still want a different dial in manager try "wvdial" which is commandline based but will help you to find the problem

good luck :-)

exactly what happened to me!
now, i just use the Network device configuration thingy under system settings..
and follow the wizard..
just type in the account info, and click activate.
you have to wait a while for it to dial! i didn't wait long enough, and kept on disconnecting it myself.. hehe

my kppp still does not work ..
