Hi, I've tried, but can't seem to figure out how to get this working.  Yes,
I'm a newbie.

I'm running Woody, and made the following config file with pppconfig

# This optionfile was generated by pppconfig 2.0.10.
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/debitel.net"
user hurschler@debitel.net

Rerun pppconfig and make the above line read:
user "hurschler"

All you have to do is enter your ISP "username" when asked, not your E-Mail address as you did.

remotename debitel.net
ipparam debitel.net


It looks like your modem is working OK and getting the necessary info from your ISP (IP, DNS, etc). I suspect that the error noted above is resulting in you not automatically logging in to your account at your ISP, via PAP. If you just put in your login name (username) that you use when you are asked by pppconfig and your password, then PAP will automatically log you in. Do select PAP authentication. Also you can check the current status of your "username" and "password" by looking in the /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file near the bottom. I suspect it will have your E-Mail address listed in the first column... this should be your username enclosed is quotes. Re-running pppconfig with the correct info should clear this up.

Normally, not being able to contact various hosts around the internet with lynx or konqueror indicates a DNS problem. You can usually tell this if you can "ping" hosts by IP number but not by name. I really don't think this is your problem here, but if you continue to have problems after making the above suggested changes, come on back with the results of a "route" and "ifconfig" command after you have established the connection.

Is the connection terminating by itself or did you terminate it in the above log extract? If it is terminating itself, then it would add more support to you not really getting logged in, IMHO.
