Padre, if you can access your router admin through your browser, there's normally a way to assign an IP address to the computers on your network. Try that, avoid .98 and .99

You can change ypur pi IP address instantly when you boot your pi up by doing the following:

Type ifconfig and write down your current "Mask:" example it could be 255.255.0.0

Then type:

sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.xx netmask xx.xx.xx.xx

Where xx is whatever you want yout new ip to be and what your current subnet mask is. Just dont type in an ip thats already being used obviously :)

Type ifconfig again to verify your ip and submet mask are updated and correct.

DO NOT reboot the pi as this well revert the changes back.

Try loading up a dc browser and goto google.com.

If this works we can setup a static ip in the pi itself for u.

@kazade Shouldn't arping detect that the IP 192.168.0.98 is in-use and set a different IP for PPP?

Hmmm. That error is a different thing entirely. Does one of the lights on the modem turn off when you attempt to connect?

Try kazades suggestion of changing your pis ip with your router

Its important you arent giving it an ip thats already in use on your network. You could look for dchp tables on your router to see everything connect to your network.

Login to your router and click on dhcp reservation and select your deampi and reassign the ip and save. Then verify your ip has changed on your pi by typing ifconfig.

You might have to reboot the pi also after changing settings on the router.

Well thats very odd :/

Have you tried formatting and reflashing the sd card?

The only other thing i could suggest is we could modify a file on your dreampi to setup a satic ip address, then reboot it and see if it retains the static ip.

This guide provides step by step instructions on how to accomplish that

The "No answer on the phone line" error is unrelated to the IP address issue. If you're not seeing one of the lights turn off on the modem when you try and connect, then the problem is definitely the line voltage inducer. It's possible you have two different issues here.
