I cannot see any posts from you on the fedora-list, which might explain
why you have not had any replies.

Don't keep reinstalling Fedora, it will not help. There is no problem
with the kernel either. You need to look at your network configuration
once you believe you are connected to the Internet:

1. Does your dialup IP appear correctly in the output of "/sbin/ifconfig
-a"?

2. Is your /etc/resolv.conf being set up correctly with the IP addresses
of your ISP's nameservers?

3. Is a default route being assigned correctly (what does "netstat -rn"
show?)?
