I pinged my ISP with the response:
206.169.38.2(206.169.38.2):56 data bytes
The number is the number that I pinged.

I then went to /etc/resolv.conf, found it empty, and
entered the ISP numbers. I also went to
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf. It already had the numbers with
the lead "nameserver".

Then I tried kppp. It dialed, I heard the ISP response
and then got: 
The pppd daemon died expectedly
Exit status 1

On the terminal was additional information:
Warning: KDE detected X error (invalid parameter
attributes)8
Major opcode:42

The response to the pon command was the same as
before, it dialed, I heard the ISP response, but I
could not connect to the internet.
