This sounds somewhat similar to the problem I had last week, couldn't connect
to web sites, couldn't ping. After you connect do a netstat -nr to see if you
have a default gateway. If it is different from the remote ip assigned to you
then you need to change it. You can see the remote ip in /var/log/messages and
you can change it with
route add default gw X.X.X.X ppp0
maybe ppp0 will be something else for ISDN connections, I don't know since I
don't have ISDN but the rest might be of some help.

I'm trying to get Mandrake 7.2 to connect to Eircom.net via my Eicon ISDN
(internal) adapter. I can connect to both Oceanfree and to the free Eircom
service, but I can't get the connection to the Eircom subscription service
working (the 1891 number). When I use DrakConf to connect to Eircom, it says
that I'm connected to the internet, but trying to access a web page in
Konqueror or Netscape just hangs. Trying to ping www.eircom.net hangs as
well. When I go into DrakConf again to disconnect, then I get the
"unresolved host name" error messages.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

I started out with nothing... I still have most of it.
