strange connection problem

hi again
I`m having a connection problem that i don`t know if i can explain ?

for some time now when i`m connected ,everytime i want to go to a site (any site) ,sometimes i`m inside (connected) reading or writting something, i get the usual message: could not be found . please check the name and try again . this morning i tried several times ( after being connected ) to acess pages and i simply couldn`t. right now i`m having 0.1 (max. 8.0kb /sec) rate a have a low flat line on kppp statistics , can you tell me please if this could be a modem problem ? i query the modem and it was alright . i also phoned my provider assistence and they told me to do a ping ( for some reason they refused to help afterwards saying they don`t give linux assistence) this is the output taken now ( part of it )

PING ( 56 octets data
64 octets from icmp_seq=0 ttl=249 time=631.1 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=1 ttl=249 time=170.6 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=3 ttl=249 time=149.2 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=4 ttl=249 time=209.7 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=7 ttl=249 time=169.9 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=8 ttl=249 time=180.0 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=9 ttl=249 time=170.3 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=10 ttl=249 time=169.5 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=11 ttl=249 time=129.3 ms
64 octets from icmp_seq=12 ttl=249 time=199.1 ms

BTW forgot to say that when it happens i try for at least two or three more times and then i get it to connect to the site i wanted . thank`s for any help , i really feel miserable cause i spent a lot of money on this modem (us robotics 56K fax modem) thanks again

Well you are trying to play a music CD or accesing a ide-cdrom drive when connected to the internet ?

i don't know if i have got what you mean exactly or not
anway,try these steps:
make sure that's /etc/resolv.conf is configured correctly
nameserver DNS-IP-# //get it from your isp,don't tell them that you are using linux,if they ask about the os,you know how to behave just ask them about the ip of the DNS of the isp.

-if you are using konqueror with kde3 it has some problem like that, i don't rem the error message,it just needs from you to press on the hyper-text link more than 2-3 times to follows it.
