I'm guessing you have a dialup connection since your asking about a modem. The first thing then to connect to the net is to setup your modem.

We'll need to know your modem's model and then go from there.

Assuming you have a winmodem you'll need to install some drivers (Linux doesn't normal ship with modem drivers as they are propriotry code). Check out http://www.linmodems.org/ they should be able to point you in the right direction.

If you are sure that your modem is supported by Linux without drivers, please continue. Otherwise, download the scanmodem script and look at the /scan/ModemData.txt file it creates for you:

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

extract the script first then

chmod +x scanModem
./scanModem
