I've got the same problem, I think. I have eth0 configured and when I dial
up, the modem seems to connect, but then it doesn't seem to do
anything. I've tried setting the gateway by hand, like
route add default gw ....
and in the netstat the gateway seemed to be there, but it wasn't doing
anything anyway. Is that the same in yours? And does anyone know the way
to do that automatically?
