    problem with ppp daemon using sierra wireless aircard 312U

    I am in rural Australia trying to connect to the internet with a sierra wireless aircard 312U. Telstra is the ISP, ubuntu 10.10 64 bit OS. Have tried many suggestions from webpages before coming here. Have tried connecting with wvdial. Had no joy with the network manager, am almost connected using wvdial. However, I cannot get online. Here is the terminal output:

    steven01@steven01:~$ sudo wvdial
    [sudo] password for steven01:
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ

    ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    OK
    --> Modem initialized.
    --> Sending: ATDT*99#
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    ATDT*99#
    CONNECT 21000000

    Have looked at man pages and messages file. However, I'm stuck here. Would love to become a better informed Ubuntu advocate. Can anyone help me. Thanks in advance.

    Try pppoeconf in the terminal.

    Code:
    sudo pppoeconf
    Its pretty straight forward.
