I am using the smaller one Live CD Basic.... I did not try the Unreal
Tournament version. I will give it a shot next.

I wish I could help Shad, but I am not sure what to suggest. Did you tell us
which install cd you used? I use sympatico dsl and used the live cd with
unreal tournament on it for installation, and it went flawless.
If I remember right I used adsl-setup. I told it to get dns servers from
sympatico rather than typing them in manually. I also didn't use any
Some things to check (it sounded like you had checked already but maybe a
double check would catch something that was missed).
do you get an ip address from sympatico? /sbin/ifconfig look for ppp0
can you resolve hostnames? ping www.yahoo.com does it give an unknown host
can you ping your gateway? ping 64.x.x.1
can you ping anyone else? ping www.yahoo.com
are there any errors in the ppp error log? /var/log/ppp
does adsl-status tell you your connection is up? adsl-status
Are there any wonky messages in /var/log/messages or on the console?
Anyway, hopefully you can get it going.
