Tell us more about the modem. Is it external or internal, serial or usb?

What distro are you using?

Have you tried

pppconfig (from the command line)

What does "no luck" mean?

The chances are you need a driver for it.

If you run

lspci

you should be able to identify the chipset. You'll then need to google for:

linux (myChipSet)

and download the driver.

They were lying! The compatability they're refering to is probably of their drivers.

OK, so I was wrong.

First of all, ln -s ttySS14 doesn't make any sense as a command.

Maybe

ln -s /dev/ttySS14 /dev/modem

would do it.

If it's not maintaining a connection, it's generally because you're using the wrong authetification. Generally it'll be PAP.

It's probably not the issue.

You might try pon to create the connection, poff to break it, but run pppconfig first.
