Hi I'm new to Ubuntu I have the exact same problem with connecting to the internet as EmilyRose had 3 weeks ago but there was no reply in that thread relating to her first problem (??) Having read loads of stuff and not really understood it, I think I have to edit some files that I'm unable to view? I'm using GnomePPP and thought that correctly entering the required feilds would've sufficed. The Zoom 56K V.92/V90 modem for linux dials out, connects but has a problem authenticating and hangs up. What am I doing wrong? any help is greatly appreciated.
