    Unable to browse through usb modem

    Hello Ubuntu Community!

    This is my first post after I've been using ubuntu for last 10 days now. I'm having issue getting my Nokia e71 work(as usb modem) on Ubuntu installation. I'm using wvdial to connect to the internet using the device. It used to work flawlessly until 2 days ago. I'm now able to connect to the device but unable to browse through it.

    The cellphone shows me as sent/received data as 0B/0B.

    Any ideas?

    The DUN part of Nokia E and N phones seems to have some build in flakiness. Instead, i use Joikuspot to use the phone as a wireless accesspoint.

    Also, rebooting the phone or loading a web page on the phone seems to revolve the issue.
    What? I'm not allowed to say fsck? Then how is i supposed to help people fix their filesystems?
