OK, absolutely new at Linux, installed 16.04. How do I get dialup going with it, since that is all I have available?

the package you are looking for is called wvdial... to install it open a terminal and type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y wvdial, type your password (no characters will be displayed) and wait till executed.

for further information you can also have a look at this site: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wvdial


if you want to use a graphical interface gnome-ppp is a way to go... open a terminal and just type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y gnome-ppp, type your password (no characters will be displayed) and wait till executed.

you can find more information to configure a dialup-network at the ubuntu wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/SetUpDialer
