New US Robotics modem won't dial; browser won't find web pages

Post by Gibson Nichol » Fri, 06 Sep 2002 20:55:32

I've got a successful connection with my new US Robotics modem (model 6510B)
using the debug option of the dial configuration (in Red Hat 7.2). It gets a
good PPP
connection.  However, I can't connect using the
PPP dialer.  It won't even dial. How do I get the dialer to dial?

Also, even when the dial configuration debug gets a connection the browser
won't find any web pages (when I've connected using debug).
I've added the domain name server IP address to the configuration.  What
else can I do to get the browser (any browser) to find web pages?

1. US Robotics 28.8 won't work!

I've just replaced my 14.4 modem with a USRobotics 28.8 and have
been having some bad problems.  Whenever I try to access the modem,
nothing happens, but I get an error message in my /var/log/messages file
that says "pppd [215] tcgetattr: I/O error".  Seyon and minicom are
also in non-working order with this modem.  It *does* however, work with
win95 (unfortunately).  Is this a modem that is known not to work with
linux???  (I've tried two kernels so far, but get the same
message---1.3.74 and 1.3.89 both don't work)

Any Help is greatly appreciated.
