Internet access via Voyager 105 on Suse

I have just installed the ECI driver for a Voyager 105 modem, using the eciadsl-usermode-0.10-nortek-alpha.tar.tar file to do so. I then tried to get access to the internet but without success. Can anyone please explain how I can put this right?

I will explain carefully what I did as I am completely new to Linux and I may have made some elementary errors.

At the end of the installation session, this line was on the screen: "You can now run eciadsl-config-text (as root) to connect to the internet." I switched to "Run Command" on the KDE kernel, entered my root password and then entered eciadsl-config-text. Nothing happened.

ECI's installation instructions, however, say that the following command should be issued at root in order to make a connection: eciadsl-start | tee log.txt. So I tried that instead, again with no result.

It occurs to me there may be any or all of three mistakes in the configuration I made. I would appreciate some guidance on this. They are:

.bin file. The specification of the Voyager 105 modem on this (ECI) website shows it to be synch03.bin but the installation instructions were unclear on this point and I entered synch01. Was this a mistake?

PPP interface. The modem's driver for Windows shows RFC2364 PPPoATM NULL Encapsulation with a modulation of G.DMT. I couldn't see any way to enter PPPoATM in the Linux configuration and ended up with PPPOECI. Is this correct?

User and password. For most purposes I use the e-mail username and password which my ISP first gave me seven years ago. However, the username, domain name and password are all quite different for using the internet via ADSL on Windows. I don't know why that is so, but I entered the ADSL ones in this configuration for Linux. Was this right?

If any of this was incorrect, how can I correct it? Do I have to go through the whole configuration again? Would I have to uninstal the driver first? I'm not sure how to do that. Or can I amend individual parts of it? If so, how?

Sorry for such a long posting, I hope someone has the patience to explain how to put this right!

You have to issue the eciadsl-config-tk or eciadsl-config-text in a console. This site may be of some help:
You may also want to read the documentation on eciadsl's website.
