"The key problem in hooking up a PPP link to an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) is that the ISP's seem to compete with each other

connecting to an ISP is discovering which technique is actually
being used by the ISP in an orderly way. Since few of them know
anything about Linux, and since few of them even understand what
technique they actually use, this procedure should allow you to
set up without their help, or to understand what their help
means if it
