Na, its a Hayes external, I tried all the choices from the drop down menu but 
no luck.

I also noticed there is no option to add a type of Network Connection what I 
mean is under Network Configuration you can usually add stuff like say a 
modem, RHEL4's KPPP has the same problem you have so what I did was add a 
modem connection in Network Configuration put the user name and password in 
and use Network Device Control to fire up and shutdown the modem, works a 
treat! but as I cant seem to do this dirty trick under Kubuntu I'm stuck at 
the moment.

In KPPP have you got something like Scripts? say (I think) 
Expect ogin xxxxx (your login)
Expect passwd xxxx (your password)

I think thats where the problem lies I had the same issue with RH8/9 RHEL4 
thats where I learnt my dirty trick from.
