I was just having the same problem. For me it turned out to be that I didn't chose The Authentication  as PAP. Also Make sure you have the DNS entry for your ISP is entered. My configurattion was a ZOOM 56K.

P.S. I am not an expert!!!! Maybe this might help.

1. KDE3 Initializing Services takes a looong time.

KDE3 takes an looong time to Initialize Services.

Comparing the number of items in the  ' /opt/kde3/share/services'  
folder with the items in the comparable  kde2 folder, there seems to be
quite a few more....145 compared to 90.  KOffice alone must have put in
a dozen files.  Are all these necessary considering I am only an
occasional user of KOffice?  If so, what other bloat can I unload?  Do
all these services running have an impact on KDE3 while it is running?
