I would connect the modem to the computer, is it a usb modem?
If it is, I would do the following:
1) Type in a terminal shell
$ dmesg | grep usb
I would look for device like usb modem
$ su -
# wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
This would scan modem ports to find the port that is needed to use so that you can make dialouts.
If a modem port is found, you will need to add some information to it so that you can connect to your provider. For instance I have the following one:
[olivares at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/wvdial.conf
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = USB Modem
Phone = #777
ISDN = 0
Username = MYUSERNAME
Init1 = ATZ
Password = MYPASSWORD.
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Baud = 460800
Carrier Check = no
Stupid Mode = yes
I use this to connect (as root user)
At the end once connected we see several DNS servers. Again open up a terminal become root(su - ) and edit the file /etc/resolv.conf and add those names to the file /etc/resolv.conf so that you can browse.
If you have questions, please let us know.
