Not a dialup user myself so I use the Network Manager applet to see activity. If I click that icon and select the configure button, the display that pops up lets me activate a modem connection. I would think that means I can use a modem for my network connection. Perhaps the Modem Monitor does something similar and creates the LEDs we used to have on standalone modems. Perhaps nice but not necessary. You should report your problem to the Edgy team.
