Fix the internet problem first then have a look at

Also installing mplayer is usually a good idea.

Start a terminal and type  "sudo pppconfig". 
Enter the ISP details.  You may need to try a few different devices
for the modem...  


for a start.

After you get that working type in a terminal or "run application" dialog
(started with alt+F2 ) 

"pon" to connect

"poff" to disconnect

Or write a toggle script and make a desktop launcher

PIDS=$(pidof pppd)
if [ -z "$PIDS" ]
exit 0
