Description Van 2003-06-14 12:19:10 EDT
Description of problem:  I managed to make my Lucent modem work and dial into 
ISP and everything (by package ltmodem-6.00c.tar.gz), but somehow I couldn't 
load any webpage. I wonder if it has anything to do with wvdial or internal 
settings of linux for webbrowser to work?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. After successfully compiling, then loading modules and 
wvidialconf /etc/wvdial.conf, a working modem is ready
2. Dial into ISP with phone, user, passwd edited from wvdial
3. It shows fine till connection is established with an IP address assgined
Actual results: After IP address is assigned and showing connected speed, it 
stops. Then I attempt to open mozilla and try load some webpage, it shows 
error message (Invalid address name...) which means there's no internet 
connection at all.

Expected results:

Additional info: I wonder if should there be any interna settings in linux for 
webbrowser to recognize the established internet connection ? Appreciate your
