Normal users cant use wvdial to dial a ppp conection, at least not by default.

Here are the perms you should set:

chmod +s /usr/bin/wvdial
chmod +x /usr/sbin/pppd
chmod +s /usr/sbin/pppd

Also make sure that

/etc/resolv.conf
/etc/ppp/options
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf
/etc/ppp/peers/wvdial

are readable by users.

Other way to do this, in a more controlled enviroment is to set up a group called "dial" or "dialout" and give this group the above permissions.

If you can't access the Internet through your dialed connection, backup your /etc/resolv.conf and make a symlink from /etc/ppp/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf.
