How to : Dial-Up internet connection with Ubuntu

One of my friends ask me to make a tutorial on how to connect to the internet from Ubuntu using a dial-up modem. Here’s how to do it :

First go to System->administration ->Netwok, when a dialog appear, click Unlock, enter password.

Click Point-to-Point connection, then fill in the dialog with your dial-up internet account details, as shown.

Click OK to confirm your selection, and you are done.

Click the modem tab, put in your modem device port, typically it should be a serial device or /dev/modem

Hopefully this should be able to help you get on the internet!

  1. I am trying to follow your instructions for getting on the internet with dial-up using Ubuntu.

    The first thing you said to go was
    “First go to System->administration ->Netwok, when a dialog appear, click Unlock, enter password.”

    I find no Network to click on only “Network Tools”. Sure could use some more help. Thanks

  2. How do you get Ubuntu to recognize a modem? I just installed the newest Ubuntu os, but it did not recognize my Coxenant 56k modem. I’ve ordered a new modem that Linux is supposed to recognize? I’ll see if it works? In the meantime, are their any suggestions out there?
    Thanks!
