I've been having trouble finding any info that will help me with this problem....

Arrow I am running Mandrake 9.2 ( I'm pretty sure Confused , not at home and haven't booted Linux in a few weeks thanks to this problem Crying or Very sad )
Arrow I have a Diamond SupraMax PCI modem ( Conexant HCFPCI ) and have downloaded the appropriate drivers from Linuxant. ( I'm also having trouble figuring out how to get my drivers to load automatically at boot, but that problem is secondary. )
Arrow My ISP is Earthlink ( Doesn't officially support Linux but was nice enough to give me all the settings needed for my modem and PPPD and told me which files I needed to modify with what information. I can post those instructions later if necessary for scrutinization. )
Arrow I can verify that my modem is functional and accessible using the appropriate Conexant drivers from Linuxant.

I have tried to initiate a connection using KPPP and it shows normal indications of a connection ( host IP, local IP, and connection speed ). However, when I try to ping the server I'm dialed into, I find that there is no logical connection present.

I have tried to initiate the connection via terminal commands and it initially negotiates, authenticates successfully, and then drops the connection. ( Carrier Loss )

I am fairly certain that this is a protocol issue with PPP dropping the ball at NCP negotiation, but I have no idea how to correct it. If anyone can help me or guide me in the right direction, I would appreciate it greatly as I am still fairly new to Linux and dealing directly with network configuration at the protocol level. Please keep in mind that I have already read up on PPPD within the Linux manpages and have not found anything that would seem to indicate where, or if, this is going wrong within the settings supplied to PPPD.

Thanks in advance, though I'd appreciate it if this didn't become just another unanswered question here. Neutral
