    Alright, I recently setup Mandrake 9.2 and it's giving me some fits when it comes to connecting to the internet. I'm on dialup, using a US Robotics 0726, confirmed working Linux modem, and it dials up to the connection no problem, but when it comes to authenticating the username and password it doesn't work. I know my username and password is correct, and as a matter of fact tried a family member's u/n and password with the ISP they were with and it wouldn't work either. Also tried all 4 methods of Authentication (PAP, CHAP, Script-based, Terminal-based). So I'm basically out of ideas here, any help would be appreciated :)

    *Also, I've tried it under root and my normal login, dual-booting with XP Pro, Full specs in sig :)

    :cheers:

    What's your ISP? I found it pretty much impossible to connect to Net Zero when I had to use dial-up recently. I didn't try incredibly hard, but I couldn't even connect without the software in XP, much less Linux. Might be the same with your ISP. Can't help you beyond that though.:( Still getting used to Linux as it is.

    Well one is TDS Telecom, a midwest US ISP and then just a local based ISP. I've never had any problems connecting to either.

    Thanks :)

    what software are you guys using to connect?
    kppp?
    is yes then add a file named kppp to /etc/ppp/peers directory. add following line to the file
    [code:1:8ccf323840]plugin passwordfd.s[/code:1:8ccf323840]

    I've had a similar problem with Suse But I could'nt even get the damn thing to emit dial tone much less verify if the User name /password was correct.

    Any thoughts on this?

    was it an external or internal modem?
    if external did you check what port is modem connected to and what port is the dialling program using?
    anyways, imo all dial-up users should try wvdial. it is a great tool and deals with most of the troubles by itself.

    Internal. And are you sure that wvdial comes with Suse 8.2?

    Also This is the same modem I using right now So I don't think its a faulty modem,but more like you said a configuration problem.

    Internal Modems usually require a bit of effort on the part of the user.
    you should go to
    http://www.linmodems.org/
    http://www.linuxant.com/
    http://pctelcompdb.sourceforge.net/display.php
    ^ the last link is for PCTel modems that most of Dell PC's come with.
    i have never tried SuSE thus i can't say whether it comes with wvdial but you can always download and install it your self :)

    Well Mandrake 9.2 has wvdial, but I got it all going alright with DrakConnect, I screwed something up and had to reinstall Mandrake and it worked, and as a matter of fact I'm in it right now :)

    Also, no effort whatsoever on my part besides typing in my ISP stuff (My modem is fairly good for Linux I've seen)
