Hello!

I am trying to get my dial-up Internet connection working since I
currently do not have broadband service (used to). I am using KDE
v3.3.1's KPPP to set up my dial-up Internet connection with
EarthLink (ELN) in Debian v3.1 (sort of outdated by a few weeks).

I am a newbie to Linux, so I might be missing or overlooking
something. DNS is automatic since I want ELN to provide the
information automatically. I can connect, but I cannot get
anywhere on the Internet.

/etc/resolv.conf seems to be updating correctly with domain
earthlink.net and nameservers (207.69.188.187 and 207.69.188.186)
when I am online.
