    Stay away from US Robotics 5686 modems!
    Unfortunately it seems to be the model not to have.

    Hi...

    Ok, wvdial sees the modem just fine, however, how do I add my username, password and phone number to the config file? What is the exact command I need to put to do this?

    Thanks...

    Re: KPPP problems...

    Code:
    gksu nautilus
    navigate to /etc/wvdial.conf way down near the bottom of the directory...add your info. save the file. That bug report did mention something about ATDT vs ADTW or something like that...

    Any more problems, paste your wvdial.conf file here...leave out password/username.

    Hi...

    "gksudo nautilus" is for gnome, not KDE. The "kdesu konqueror" command is what I've just used it to enter my information. I found the command after another search on the 'net for KDE and KPPP related information.

    I'll see how this works and let everyone know. Thanks for all your guy's help!

    Thanks...

    Hi...

    Well, I've managed quite by accident to completely screw up the wvdial config file as well as deleting it afterwords, thinking the wvdial program would create a new one. Before I deleted it, it kept complaining about not seeing my login information even though I had inserted it and saved it.

    Now, I might as well reinstall the OS.

    Honestly, I'm trying VERY hard to restrain my temper! ALL I'm trying to do is set up a SIMPLE internet connection and because of bugs and poorly written code, I am unable to accomplish that in what is marketed as a professional grade operating system.

    Best Regards...

    running sudo wvdialconf will write a new file. Make sure there are no semicolons at the beginnings of the lines with your username/password etc. These are seen as comments. Dial-up is difficult in linux. If you get it going, you can do almost anything
    Maybe take a break...before you break something else!

    also. make back up copies of files you are editing, to prevent loss:
    Code:
    sudo cp -p /etc/wvdial.conf /etc/wvdial.conf.bak
    Then is you lose the file, rename the back up to the original.

    OK, that would explain it

    I've set up everything again and I'll give it another whirl. I'll post back with the results.

    Thanks...

    Hi...

    Ok, now my modem dials up but I keep getting a "NO CARRIER" message. What gives? All the information is correct.



    Thanks...

    Re: KPPP problems...

    can you copy/paste your wvdial.conf here?

    or try adding this:

    ATZ
    ATDT 555-1234

    where 555-1234 is replaced with the number you dial.

    check also that you're using /dev/ttyS0
