can't connect internet with adsl usb modem

I have a problem to connect the internet with my adsl usb modem with pppoe. I have used adsl-setup to set configuration. The I've tried to connect with adsl-start and this said "Connected", but there is no real connection. pppd and pppoe are running, and I can connect my localhost after adsl-start is started, but whe I try something like "lynx default_url" browser says "Can't connect to the host". I've probed that in all browsers. Maybe the problem is, that my IP not static, but dynamic. My provider "T-online" changes my IP address every time, when I connect. Should dhcp run? Or may be am other binnary, that supports dynamic IP?

I'm using Slackware 9.1 distribution as second operation system. First is Win Me. I hope that somebody has a solution for this problem and can answer this.

For a USB modem you'll need a driver. I have an ethernet modem which can also be used as USB and it works a treat.
