Check this out. When I ran tail -f /var/log/messages while I logged on ppp0 and logged off I got:

I'm beginning to wonder if this might not be a problem with pppd instead of my smlink driver. Anybody have any ideas?

Allright!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I clicked on KPPP in my menu and then clicked the "configure" button. Then I chose the "accounts" tab and highlighted my ISP. I then clicked the "edit" button. I then chose the "dial" tab and clicked on the "Customize pppd arguments" button. I then added "nobsdcomp" and "nodeflate" to this interface (Thanks "jumpedintothe fire" at JustLinux.com). I then clicked the OK button in each of the interfaces that were open and then clicked on the "connect" button and guess what?

Ladies and gentlemen, I am typing this response using dial up.

Thanks to all of you who helped out. Maybe someone else can benefit from this.
