I cannot tell for sure if you're saying that it USED to work and now
doesn't, or if you're saying it has never worked.

1) Routing problem
Does "route" when run as root show the default route? Is it correct for
routing stuff out to your ISP ?

2) Nameserver problem
Does your dialup provide automatic name server definitions, or do you
have to configure that manually? Either way, is it correct?
