Description Carson Lewis 1999-12-10 17:40:40 UTC
Please no newbie bashing but I cant get on the internet. Is it my service provider, MSN?(no bashing, i just dont wanna change till i get dsl in 1 month, to much hassle with emails) The modem connects fine and when i type route everything looks ok, but when i go to use the connection to access any part of the internet i can't. I'm new to Linux universe and Like it alot better than Win98 but i use Windows for Gaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I can't tell from your description, but my best guess is that DNS is not getting set up properly, which is a bug in initscripts. Upgrade to our latest initscripts to fix that bug. Upgrade rp3 and ppp to fix other bugs at the same time.

This bug has not been touched in over six weeks. I can only assume that Michael's suggestion fixed the problem.
