After upgrading to kernel-image 2.6.8-2-686 and reinstalling my hcfpci
winmodem deb file, I can activate the modem, dial my ISP, conduct PAP
negotiations and get my local IP address and DNS servers assigned with a
real connection in process using wvdial as indicated by the online time
when I kill the process with cntrl C. However, no transmissions take
If I use apt-get update, upgrade or anything requiring data transfer I

I get URL cannot be found, check the name and try again. It's obvious
to me that the connection is there, but there is no communication
Am I dealing with a bug or is there an easy fix as there was for my
problem. The modem works fine when I bootup with my 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel
using the same configuration files on wvdial, pon, pap-secrets,
I'll appreciate any advice or suggested reading offered to solve this
problem. It's the only issue I know to have to get a fully functioning
system with the sarge kernel.
Thanks so much,
Hello again Leonard,
I'll take a few non-expert swings at this... :)
1) Confirm your connectivity with ping and traceroute to a numerical IP
address like 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11.
2) Your errors resolving urls sound like a "no dns" problem. Try $ host
www.debian.org , or $ dig www.kernel.org to see if you're getting
anything back from your dns servers.
Of course you've read the /usr/share/doc/... for the packages you've
upgraded and checked the bug reports for them?
