Smile Linux RedHat 9 Mozilla Internet Connectivity Issues

I am running RedHat 9, and am having Internet connectivity issues using the Mozilla browser. Basically, the problem that I am having is that I cannot connect to the Internet in Linux lately for large portions, in fact most hours, of the day. The problem is not my modem, because I am still able to connect in my WinXP account using IE. I do not know if there is something that changed in my Linux network configuration or if I need to upgrade Mozilla, or if it due to RedHat not supporting Linux anymore.

I noticed when I logout of Linux and the connection is down, there are many error messages regarding that the network provider is not communicating or cannot be found.

Thanks in advance guys.

There may be a modem driver problem or other kind of configuration problems. Please copy the errors you get and if you can, look into your /var/log/messages and try to find messages about your modem (those about connections will start with 'pppd' at the beginning of the line after a timestamp).
