SIOCSIFMETRIC: Operation not supported



I have got a modem with a MD5628D-L-C chip. I have downloaded
Intel-536ep-451.tgz from intel and installed it on Debian woody.

'pon' diales now, but I cannot use the connection.  I get:

Dec 16 22:27:22 p4 pppd[400]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0

Dec 16 22:28:01 p4 diald[197]: Closing down idle link.

What does it mean and what should I try next?

Thanks a lot for your help, Robert.
