      You could look into wvdial.

      Try, as a test, "wvdialconf testconf", this will put some minimal
      information in a file "testconf" which you could then post to the list.

      Hi, I did what you said Scott and here are the results: 1) first I typed wvdial and this was the result [root@localhost root]# wvdial -- WvDial: Internet

        Hi, I did what you said Scott and here are the results:

        1) first I typed wvdial and this was the result

        [root@localhost root]# wvdial

        --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
        --> Warning: section [Dialer Defaults] does not exist in wvdial.conf.
        --> Cannot open /dev/modem: Input/output error
        --> Cannot open /dev/modem: Input/output error
        --> Cannot open /dev/modem: Input/output error

        2) then I did the second thing but it stays at "USB15" and it doesn´t
        create the file, I got this directly from the shell

        [root@localhost root]# wvdialconf /root/D*/testconf
