  1. Can't get KPPP to work for dial-up Internet connection...

    Hello!

    I am trying to get my dial-up Internet connection working since I
    currently do not have broadband service (used to). I am using KDE
    v3.3.1's KPPP to set up my dial-up Internet connection with
    EarthLink (ELN) in Debian v3.1 (sort of outdated by a few weeks).

    I am a newbie to Linux, so I might be missing or overlooking
    something. DNS is automatic since I want ELN to provide the
    information automatically. I can connect, but I cannot get
    anywhere on the Internet.

    /etc/resolv.conf seems to be updating correctly with domain
    earthlink.net and nameservers (207.69.188.187 and 207.69.188.186)
    when I am online.
