Default Sagem 800 problem with broadband and ISP

I am running Red Hat 9 using a USB broad band Modem ( using Tiscali as My

I have followed the instruction in order to connect to ISP and I am having

I have installed the driver and it worked- ifconfig -a indicated ad modem
was there under network interfaces.

I edited the adiusbbadsl.conf file ( /etc/analog/) and set
"Encapsulation=00000006" ( My ISP uses PPPOA VCMUX )

I also provided "VPI=00000000"

Which are the correct hex numbers translated from 0,38.

I also edited the chap secrets and Pap secrets with;

Username * Password

And the Options file;


I have started the connection and it seems to connect as I have a pppo
interface listed in ifconfig -a

If I ping the ISP Primary dns I get network unreachable. I used to get a
ping back before I removed the network card from the PC, but since this is a
USB and not ethernet modem it should not matter. and anyway the NIC was not
connected to anything.

anyone have any ideas?

Can you post results of "ifconfig pppo" and "route -v"?

Have you tried manually running dhclient or dhcpcd?

Anything in the messages file or dhcp client logs?
