Where did you put the information that your ISP gave you? Usually, when
there is a problem resolving domain names it is because there are no
entries in resolv.conf, or the entries are incorrect. How are you you so
sure that you are actually getting a connection? If you run tail -f
/var/log/messages, the attempt the connection, you will see if the
connection is being made. Since the modem works fine with windows, the
other problem may be that it is a winmodem. Good luck trying to get that
to work, although there are some with drivers available for Linux.
