http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have a problem with dial-up internet connection on fedora 17. Unfortunately I live in a rural area where dial-up is my best option. On fedora 16 there was no problem with dial-up. In fedora 17 I used system-config-network to set up the modem and write all the relevant files. I amended the configurations, to allow user control of the modem etc. The configurations that I used were the same as those which worked perfectly for fedora 16, and earlier fedoras. I amended the files: /etc/wvdial.conf /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-IspProviderName I checked the pap-name and chap-n (HowTos)
