I just pulled out my old modem and did a quick test to see what the
minimum required information to connect to my ISP was. Here is what I
came up with:

Protocol: PPP
Configuration: server
Access Number: <ISP number>
UserID: <username>
When closing, disconnect after 2 minutes <set it to 2 for testing>
PrimaryDNS: <set to ISP DNS server>
Domain Name: <blank>
Login Script: <blank>

Try logging in with the minimum information required and see what
happens. you may find that, like my ISP, you don't need to input the
domain name or a login script. That may solve the domain name error.
