    dialup w/ pcmcia 56k + Lan Card

    Ok i have one of those Lan + 56k cards from linksys and it works great. but i want to use 56k on it. But i have a few questions. first of all.. i know (i think) when im ready to set up my dial-up stuff i type 'pppsetup' as root. ok this works. i put in my phone # and stuff. now when it comes asking which device is my modem i get confused. thats problem #1.. next it asks me all these in depth questions about my ISP. like is it PAP or CHAP or something? i dont know this, i mean i guess i could email them.. but for most people what is the default. and then assuming that you guys help me set this up (which im confident you will cause u know everything) .. how would i dial-in and start my 56k connection? heh. another note.. im on slackware 8.1 on a laptop running blackbox. very slow computer.. just need dial-up. LAN works great, so 56k should have no problems. if you have AIM.. you could IM @ thatboysabin if you want. i might be away but leave a message.. ill reply. anyways.. i didnt know what section to put this in.. so here it is. Thanks guys for any help.

    whether your ISP wants to use PAP or chap i don't know, that'll be you job to find out.

    you can check these out though:

    you may also find this to be usefull:

    i believe the reason that the lan is working so well and not the 56K is that eth0 may be initialized on boot, where your PPP is not. i forget the exact command to bring it up, but it is something like /services/ppp up, but i will look further into that. (i am not on my home pc at the moment)

    goodluck

    there are full howto's right here. If you get it working, maybe try writing an OMP for everyones reference.

    look at section 4.4.3 for dialup info.
