LinuxMint17.v2, Mate DVD Edition, does not
support dialup internet out-of-the-box.
This is due to an ommission or removal of the local-repositories

At time of writing, this forum has reduced attachment size to 50Kb, so
this prevents me from posting a new instruction set for LM17.v2.
Anyone looking for latest LM17.v2 instructions are welcome to send me
a PM, with an email address to send .pdf's.
(The PM service on this forum does not allow file-attachment.)
The instructions have been split into 3 parts, total file size for all 3 combined, is ~1.5MB.
Your patience is appreciated.
