First time VL user and I'm very impressed
. I haven't been this happy with a distro since I tried LinuxMint.
Anyhow, I'm having trouble with a dialup internet connection.
When I dial, I hear all the usual modem sounds and the dialer tells me I'm connected (and it seems to stay connected).
But when I open up a browser, I'm not able to connect to anything on the internet - I've tried firefox and opera and both are the same.
I tried to just ping some websites and I get nothing.
Few more details might help here:
It's an old Compaq laptop. Pressario 700 1Ghz Athlon, 256 RAM.
HSF Connexant modem <-<<< I downloaded and installed the latest Linuxant driver. I know it is limited to 14.4 unless I pay, but I just wanted to get it working first. The driver seemed to install smoothly with no error messages - the modem itself seems to be working cause it makes all the "normal" modem noises and authenicates password with my ISP.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
