Ok ModelM I did that, and I can still log into the Dial-up IP but my web browser still cannot find websites.

I have looked at network settings and "Point to point connection" shows "type ppoe Ethernet Interface: eth0" but there is no mark in the box to the left of the telephone icon. If I check the box, the load icon spins for a few seconds and then the checkmark disappears.
If it means anything the "Wired Connection" box above "Point to Point has a "-" in it all the time but there is no wired connection.

Any more suggestions or is there anything more I can tell you that might help?
