Im not the original on this thread, But I too have been unable to get my Internet connection to work under SuSE 9.1 on my AMD 64 box. My first guess would be that the original poster has a winmodem and needs to install drivers specific to the winmodem. However, I do know that an issue does exist with SuSE 9.1 and perfectly good controller based modems.
My modem is a pci modem from Actiontec. This is a controller based modem, not a winmodem This modem works fine under Gentoo , debian, and Win XP on the same machine for all uses.
Please note that I said my internet connection does not work under SuSE. The actiontec pci modem is recognized and set up correctly under Yast. I can use the modem with minicom with no problems. However, the normal Yast set up connection and the Kinternet front end fail to establish a ppp connection with my isp.
I had opened a ticket with SuSE when I first installed 9.1, but my support time has long since past. Both SuSE and I have failed to solve the problem directly. I play with things like the acpi setting and lcp-max configure settings every now and then, but I have not yet found the conflict.
Everything works well in other distros, and I have configured a script to work from minicom to log me in to my isp and negotiate a connection using expect for when I use SuSE.
I have tried an external modem, and it does not show the same errors, but I need my serial ports for other devices. Since I have a script working, I am not in desperate need of a solution. If I ever figure it out I will e-mail SuSE with my original help ticket number and let them know what I find.

Hi, I have been unable to connect to the internet ( had to buy another PC for that)
Duh? That doesn't sound right, somehow ... what is the nature of your internet connection, and your problem?
