that dpkg -C brings you back to the prompt means that everything that you
have installed is properly configured as far as installation is concerned.
what remains is the question of how what is installed that is user
configurable is actually configured. the best i can do is to send you the
configs that render my machine functional for net access, so here goes:
Modem = /dev/ttyS1
Baud = 57600
Init = ATZ
Init2 = AT S11=50
Phone = ************
Username = benfoley
Password = ****************
Dial Command = ATDP

these are, to the best of my knowledge, the only significant config files
relative to hooking up to the web. the other possiblility is that your isp
may have some quirky setup condition that you've forgotten to include.
