hi everyone

i have ubuntu 10.10 and a 3g usb modem. my question is how can i connect to internet from the console window and not gui. for gui i just need to configure the modem by entering providers nsme and the plan. also /etc/init.d/start networking or simply start networking wont work. i guess it works for wired network
thanx to all

I've looked everywhere, and I honestly don't think there's a TTY utility to configure 3G modems(without considerable difficulty). You can connect to the internet with the 3G modem with the GUI, then use Alt+F1 to switch to a TTY.

Something in linux that can be done with a GUI but not in the CLI? I don't believe it (unless the software is proprietary). I'd check the man pages for the program you use to connect, it should have CLI switches in there for connecting without GUI. I'm not certain since I don't use a modem myself.

I checked the man pages for the network-manager CLI interface, and there doesn't seem to be any way to access networ-manager's interfacing with PPPoE. There is a CLI interface for that, but the OP said they tried it and it didn't work for them. . . :confused:

Any other kind of interface can be brought up easily:


sudo service network start

It's the 3G modem that has me stumped. . . :/

i guess sudo start networking also does same as the command you gave

Yep, they're both interfaces to Upstart.
