    cannot surf or ping my isp even though im connected

    i refuse to accept that my problem does not have a solution. someone please help. the problem simply is that even while connected i cannot surf or ping my isp. my hardware is a huawei E156G usb modem. new clues: the system time gets changed and set back by 6hrs once i connect the modem. also wondering if its possibly ipv6 issues or maybe my isp does not assign me an ip address? its works ok in windows. nb i really know nothing about the ip part.

    There are a few threads mentioning problems with the huawei modems. Several are marked [SOLVED] - though I see you've found them. Check ifconfig -a (from a terminal) to see if you have an IP address.
