Most probably your username and/or password is wrong (the connection was correctly established, your authentication had no success).

Check them, check also the home page of your provider whether they changed something (happened to me only recently...), and have a look at the protocol, there is PAP and CHAP, use PAP as requested by your provider.

According to your last post you got one before:

"pppd[0]: Remote message: Authentication failure"

which simply meant that you are not authorized to connect (with the password and username you used). Please post the new (error) message from your provider.

Yeah, well, it says it all. But first

this: you are dialling before the line is up. Go to yast and there to modems. In the popup dialogue you will find a checkbox labelled like "Wait for signal from Carrier" or some such. Check that and finish the dialogue.

To your original question notice this:

...
PAP = Password Authentication Protocol

So from the point of view of your provider your login-combination of password and username is invalid.

Gah, I'm fighting the same battle and have not won (yet).

I called kppp from a terminal then (as root / after su, or one has to set the permissions in /usr/kde3/share/...). You will have to set kppp up (give it the necessary parameters) but then you can monitor your connection and modem to find out whether they work and when you have a connection you can start your browser and highjack the line as a substitute until the time you get Kinternet working as it should.

[Addendum]
My problem was the stupid mode which must be set to yes.
Why don't you toggle the PAP / CHAP authentication and the mode for an experiment? That's 4 settings to try, perhaps one works ... and please post your solution .
