Puppy 4.0 won't connect to ISP, PPP problem

Puppy 4.0 worked fine for two months with a dialup winmodem. Now it dials and connects, then says PPP was killed (signal-11) and PPPd error. I obtained an external serial modem today and the same thing happens.
I put the Puppy CD in and booted into RAM. At dialup it then says PPP daemon has died (exit code=16).
Please help me figure out this problem.

firstly the real puppy site has a dialup forum if you still have probs

if you need to post there pls include more info on chipset or suspected chipset of windowsmodem or details of your new modem etc

2) Either click on Setup icon/connect to ...dialup....OR
open a terminal and type command (with root powers)


which takes you to same gui config box....near the RH corner you will see a button called test and probe...redo it pls if no correct modem is detected at your com port

if you need to setup setserial first see this site

In simple terms, if you have set or not set correctly the termianl (com port) your os can not talk to the external device
