November 4th, 2008, 12:51 PM
I'm a new Ubuntu user, I was using Windows XP. My ISP has given me a Modem. Modem brand name is Paradyne, It might be a local modem.
Is there anyway to connect Internet using that Modem?
Please help me.
Thanks in Return

any idea if your connection is DSL or cable.. in windows xp, did you require a dialer to connect to the internet or does it work as soon as you switch on your modem?

if it's a usb modem, then it should be no problem, just have network manager dial the number. if network manager doesn't work, try gnome-ppp.
