First, ensure you have PPP configured.
Type `pppd' at the command prompt and see if you get garbage on the screen (it stops after a bit). If you do then go to second step, if not you will need to install PPP and recompile the kernel.
Second, I got this from someone after trying to connect unsuccessfully for three days, it worked first try.
This is what I used from my ISP and it worked good. Now all I have to
do is type ppp-on and boom, Im connected!!!
System Requirement : PPP Daemon (pppd-2.1.2 or higher)
