What sort of modem do you have?

Looks like a configuration problem. Try making a new connection from Gnome or KDE.

If you can dial out but get a 'missing server' message, that means that you have no nameserver defined. That looks as if you haven't set it up properly.

But if you can dial out, the modem works. That's a start.
