    You could use kinternet (kdenetwork3-dialup package) or gnome-ppp. There is also a kde4-kppp dialer package available as well. If you install via yast software magement tool, it will take care of other required dependencies including ppp and smpppd packages.

    yeap, kinternet and ppp and smpppd are installed.. i just downloaded the xp drivers to my ambit modem... do i need to add the drivers or does suse 11kde4 have linux drivers i can use, where are they and how to install? also adding these modem packages arent going to conflict with my wireless setup?

    thanks

    nothing connects, just one lightning bolt from kinternet icon...
    all installed. kinternet, smpppd, ppp.. smpppd is on in Runlevel 3 and 5

    i didnt add any drivers was hoping suse 11 kde4 did that..

    kiniternet log

    Your modem device is almost certainly a soft modem, requiring a proprietary driver to be installed first. In many cases, a linux driver does not exist, so often they are unusable. However, if you want to check out if a driver is available, this scanModem utility is worth a shot. Read this Ubuntu howto first. Good luck.

    scanmodem.gz worked but too much info for my new suse user brain

    if this helps i found my chipset, 00:09.0 125d:2838 103c:0020 Communication controller: ESS Technology ES2838/2839 SuperLink Modem
    Chip Description: Maestro-2 PCI audio accelerator
    class =0780
    pci dev= 125d:2838
    subsys 103c:0020
    irq 11

    Unfortunately, you need linux drivers. In many cases they don't exist. You're better off purchasing an external (usb) modem, making sure it is on the opensuse hcl first.
