Am trying to get dialup working on ubuntu but am having some trouble
here is what I did:

1) downloaded gnomePPP all settings are current except my modem is not detected, tried all drop down menus and pressed the connect button but its not working

2) downloaded the appropriate driver (intel536ep-intrepid_3-Philippe.Vouters_i386.deb) for intel modem model 90/92V

3) driver installation was successful, went to gnomePPP and its not dectecting my analog modem.

what should I do?
your help is greatly appriciated!:p

Most folks don't use dial up. I will see if I can help.

First off, what kind of modem do you have? Hardware or Winmodem? Internal or External?

Another thing that I would like is the result of the command lspci . Just copy paste the bugger. Lets see if we can find your modem.

This is real interesting. You have a winmodem and a modem controler in different locations.

I assume you are dual booting, could you tell me with what and does the modem work there. I see that there has been some issue with drivers for XP.

I have a fairly busy day today, the cows are out 10 miles from here and need sorted out and I have a frozen water source here to sort out.

I will be checking in as often as I pass the house here.

You will get a lot better service out of a hardware modem under any OS. I changed the winmodem out of this box for a USR5610c and increased the speed by at least 25% and connection reliability by about 80%. The winmodem would not stay connected well. That was under Vista. I never got it going under Ubuntu because the free drivers for conexant modems only give a 14k modem and that just seemed silly.

I think we can sort this out though, we will need some research on the controler and I am on that now.

Give a little info on your computer. What are the specs and who made it. Your controler is listed as supported, at least on some computers.

Give a little info on your computer. What are the specs and who made it. Your controler is listed as supported, at least on some computers.

my pc specs:
AMD athlon 64 2.2 GHZ (Overclocked)
1GB RAM
80GB hard drive(Ubuntu)
60GB (Windows xp)
Graphics card: ATI 9250 pro 128MB Diretc X and 256MB OpenGL
DVD-RW DVD-RAM speed 24X LG
Modem: Intel 90V 92V (intel536ep)

I bought this computer in 2005, however it was build by an independent computer store not dell, hp etc
I have the drivers for both ubuntu and xp but the modem is being detected only by xp.

ranch hand, thank you for your time:D

Why don't you try downloading scanModem and trying it. I will admit that it did nothing for me but they have a new version and it might.

It is on the linmodem site which deals with connexant but it might be worth a try. I would run a search for scanModem directly as the site is slow to navigate. They have directions for using it when you are downloading in a dual boot.

It may tell us where your modem is to be detected by what needs to detect it.

I think I may be being silly or slow. What port is the modem on in windows? This will give us an Idea where to look in linux.

An ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) modem driver: snd-via82xx-modem
provides Low Level support enabling contact with the modem hardware.
For all BUT Conexant chip soft modems (using hsfmodem software)
complementary High Level support is through a Smartlink utility: slmodemd

Download from http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/
the package SLMODEMD_gcc4.2_alsa1.0.17.tar.gz having a compiled slmodemd. Unpack under Linux with:
$ tar zxf SLMODEMD_gcc4.2_alsa1.0.17.tar.gz
and read instructions therein. But briefly, the modem is setup with command:
sudo slmodemd -c YOUR_COUNTRY --alsa modem:1
reporting dynamic creation of ports:
/dev/ttySL0 --> /dev/pts/N , with N some number

Completed candidate modem analyses.

The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.3.2
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.3.2



Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.3
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/build

However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in /usr/include/ .
For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.
Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
In not included on your install CD, search for them at http://packages.ubuntu.com
or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.


Compressed files at: /usr/src/qc-usb.tar.bz2


If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

A modem device/card may be disabled at bootup, due to a variety of causes.
Look at the bootup diagnostics record dmesg.txt and try to garner some
understanding from it. Attach it to your query to discuss@linmodems.org
Possibilities therein are too diverse to be automagically processed by
scanModem. A line including the PCI
bus slot 00:11.6 of your modem, and "disable" or "disabling" predicts problems,
though sometimes corrected later in the bootup. Similarly a line with "@"
in the interrupt (IRQ) for your 00:11.6 slot is predictive of problems.

Possible corrections are:
1) Within the boot up BIOS, change from a Windows to a non-PNP/Other Operating System type.
Instructions for accessing BIOS are at:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/resources.html within: Additional Resourcces.
2a) Add an option "pci=routeirq" to the kernel boot up line.
Here is an example paragraph from /boot/grub/menu.lst :
title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-26-686
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-26-686 root=/dev/hda7 ro pci=routeirq
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-26-686
savedefault
2b) Same as above, but use "pollirq" instead of "pci=routeirq".
3) Within some BIOS setups, IRQ assignments can be changed.
4) On non-laptop systems, moving the modem card to another slot has helped.
5) Blacklist as many drivers as possible. See
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-eighth/msg01593.html
6) Sometimes upgrading the kernel solves the problem.
7) Sometimes downgrading the kernel solves the problem.
8) Sometimes changing the Linux distribution solves the problem.
9) Get unloading.gz from http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/linmodems/
This script unloads excess drivers which may be competing for resources.
Before trying to set up the modem, do:
$ gunzip unloading.gz
$ chmod +x unloading
$ su - root
# ./unloading
Or for Ubuntu related Distros
$ sudo ./unloading

All right, I'm back.

I see that scanModem would not have done me any good either.

I got gnome-ppp and tried it - worthless, uninstalled it because I was afraid it might screw up my connection. It is the gui for wvdial which didn't work for me then and does not detect my modem now.

I tried minicom again and it thinks my modem is at ttys8. In reality it is at ttyS0.

I am very sorry that I led you on this merry chase when what we need is the windows port. I did not think about it because I am now windows free. Once again I am sorry.

What you need to do is print out these instructions and try them. I believe they will work unless there is an issue with the modem controller.

Go first to your network manager applet and click on it. Click on Manual configuration. When the box comes up click on the hosts tab. The results will be grayed out but readable. I think that your local host will be 127.0.0.1 and the next down with your computers name on it should be 127.0.1.1. What ever those 2 are use them in pppconfig.

To get there, go to Terminal and enter sudo pppconfig and follow the directions for a new connection. Make sure you have all your connection information written down. Will be the same as under windows. The telephone number that your modem uses for example.

Make sure that you check everything before you save the connection and make sure you do that before hitting the exit command.

Your connection will still not work.

Go back to the network manager applet and repeat that up to when the box shows up. Unlock it with your pass word.

Ignore the tabs and click on the point to point connection and then on properties. click on enable this connection. Leave the modem as serial. Enter phone #. enter username and password.

Next tab:Modem Enter ttyS2 (you need this in pppconfig too). Set volumn at loud (you can reset this later if it bugs you).

Next tab:options. Check them all. You want them.

Click on OK.

At this point, if your drivers are right, and the modem controller is not a problem, you should happily hear your modem dialing.

Check on your system monitor (/system/administration/system monitor) to see if there is input output registered within a few seconds or if your modem redials after about 90 second and then you get some IO.

If so, you are connected. If you cursor over the network applet it will tell you "No Network Connection" it lies. If you click on it you should get a dial up connections option that allows you to disconnect and connect.

Firefox will need to be enabled to get on line as it will be set to work off line and you need to go to file and down next to the bottom uncheck that. After you update there is a fix for this that I will reveal (I found out today) when you report back that you are online under Ubuntu.

ranch hand thank you for trying. I guess there is no solution to my problem, maybe in the future there will be a fix.
I wanted to use dialup because I was thinking to downgrade my service to dial up since its $3 per month and I dont use the internet for large file downloads, I just surf the internet and thats it... am a basic user:):D
best regards

ranch hand
January 6th, 2009, 05:29 AM
Did you try it. I think it should work.

The ttyS2, btw, is because the 4 ttys that work for modems under linux are ttyS0 through ttyS3 and correspond to ports 1 through 4 under windows. As you are on port 3 under windows the modem should be on ttyS2 under windows.

If the directions weren't clear just ask and I will try to make them planer. Don't be scared of the terminal, it is your friend. Windows has one too, it just isn't as friendly.

I also had this problem on my toshiba laptop.
I installed slmodemd and gnome ppp and still could not connect.

Here's what I did:

-I located and downloaded sl-modem-daemon.

-The daemon will set up your /etc/wvdial.conf file, however after you intall and follow all the instructions with it, you may need to:
~$ cd /etc
~/etc$ sudo gedit wvdial.conf
and then manually enter your phone number, username and password.

-The sl-modem-daemon will default your analog modem port as /dev/tty/SL0.

-Enter this as well as your your baud rate (I can't remember but I think I used scanModem to find this) into your gnome ppp dialer.

-At this point it still won't work until you execute the command:
~$ sudo /etc/init.d/sl-daemon restart

-That's right, you have to execute this command (as root) every time you want to start the modem and then you can dial with gnome ppp

-I made an application launcher with this line that opens in terminal so I can give my sudo password, a little tedious but it works fine.

I think there's commands to enable it on startup but I don't know if this would cause a conflict with the wireless and ethernet drivers-----there's another subject I'm not sure but I think the only way my wireless works is to restart with the wifi switch on and the dialup modem started and then run the package manager-?-?-another post

ranch hand
January 6th, 2009, 07:52 AM
That is of interest to me.

I assume that you have a Smart Link modem. I searched and found the daemon in the Debian repository.

How on earth did you find this thing?

I located the info somewhere in ubuntu documentation, nothing else worked.
Once I made the modem work I almost changed my wife to ubuntu (she doesn't like ANYTHING new), but when I set her up for her first session a new bug appeared, sudden shutdown, power off right now, immediately with no warning.
So she's back on XP and I still have a split personality-dammit.
I'm in town right now but I have that documentation printed out at home, it is VERY useful and hard to find, I'll post back with where it's at.

The place where I found out about sl-modem-daemon......deb was here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/AlsaModem

After following these instructions I used this:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/SetUpDialer

I was unable to make a connection using the network manager so I used the alternative approach downloaded gnome-ppp on my windows side, I attempted alot of different things and was never able to get the dialer to accept my ph #, uname, and pword (invalid?) by editing them by hand into wvdial.conf. The daemon worked but only by using the restart command.

-----HOWEVER after getting the dial-up to work I began suffering from sudden shutdown, I posted here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1032778
after spending a few hours to get the wifi working it got worse then I lost wifi and on a restart both my wifi and ethernet drivers disappeared (rather odd don't you think) now my ubuntu will only last about 45 seconds to a minute before gagging and dying.
----MAYBE it was because I attempted to first use:
SLMODEMD.gcc4.2.tar
which almost worked but just refused to accept ph#, etc.
I then installed:
sl-modem-daemon_2.9.10+2.9.9d+e-pre2-5ubuntu4_i386.deb
which actually kind of works but maybe there's a conflict between the two?
I'm probably going to scrub the system tommorrow, start over, try to clean up my modem chicanery, if I come up with a clean way to make it all work I'll post.

-----PS any help at all with this fatal shutdown deal would be greatly appreciated Toshiba Satellite M35X, 1.5g celeron m, 1g RAM, Atheros AR 5004G WiFi, Realtek RTC8139/810x Ethernet

Sounds to me like you ought to invest in a real hardware modem. I went with an internal. Everyone seemsto think that external is the way to go. You really get a lot better performance.

Otherwise your search sounds a lot like my search for into on the cannexant that came with this box. Not fun when having to switch computers and burn everything to CDs.

My wife, I think, is a little more adventurus but it took her 3 weeks to want something other than Vista to my 3 days. Sometimes it is good to have someone there to slow you down and make you think.

You are still going to have to configure it in some way, but they are supposed sto be a little easier.

The modem should be supported by your kernal. I would check the discription of the modem you want and see what the people that make it say.

The Win drivers came on a CD with my USR modem and there were some handy installation tips and CLI commands for Linux, non of which really helped but did give some hints as to what to look for.

I did a little checking and found this site that my give you a clue to installing a usb Modem

<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/Setserial?action=show&redirect=setserial>

I copy/pasted the commands for detection and they installed/activated the needed files, did the checks flawlessly. Of coarse it failed. I don't have a sub Modem or the associated files. But it appears to work in Hardy and you need that tty address to configure the Modem to connect.

I believe that item#180318448381 is a 5610 series modem. My USR5610c is definately not detected by my box, currently running on 2.6.24-22 (Hardy).

It runs great but takes about 3 to 5 minutes to configure using pppconfig first and then network manager.

They give a link for updating the modem in the listing and the update is for 5610 and mine says perfomance pro on the box.

It is a great modem but I never would have found the right tty address if I had not had Vista at the time to find the port on Win and translate that to ttyS0.

If I go to the ttyS0 file right now it will be empty. There is no modem listed in any file on this box. The bugger doesn't care. It works anyway. Network manager still shows "no network connection" if you cursor over it. If you click on the applet it does give you the option of connect/disconnect so I don't care if it thinks there is no connection.

It would be hard to send this if there weren't.

As my next box will never have MS on it, I really need one that will be detected. I may get some of the others and try them. That is why I have 3 installs of Hardy. I have 2 that I can break and still have a box that works. I am on wone of the 2 "play" installs now.

Item# 280300520604 has one USRWinmodem and a USR Hardware modem USR0778. It appears to be another member of the 5610 family. 5610a and 5610b may work. I don't know about this one.

I am sure that it will connect and work well but if it is recognized I don't know.

Any clues?

I do believe that Ubuntu "recognizes" your modem.

And keep in mind that ttyS0 is not a modem, it's a serial port. The operating system only communicates with the serial port. All of the "modem stuff" takes place in the modem (the whole point of a hardware modem) & the operating system has no concern or worry about whatever device is attached to the serial port.

I'm tuning in late but I thought I heard someone asking about USB modems. The USR5637 works perfectly in Ubuntu 8.04 & later. The Rosewill RNX-56USB works perfectly in Ubuntu 8.10, but not 8.04. (Not without grabbing wrenches & going under the hood.)

Oh yes, you can find it there. You just can't find any trace of it anywhere else in files that ought to have it.

Doesn't matter. The sucker works just fine. For that matter it works better than it did under Vista by about 20%. And at the distance I am from our providers modem, about 54 miles, 20% makes a big difference.

For what it's worth, I have a "nexxtech" (think it's just a generic circuit city brand) model NSFTMD1 winmodem that I got from circuit city for like $10 or so. It works great on 8.04 with the dell drivers from here (already unlocked to full speed) (http://linux.dell.com/files/ubuntu/hardy/modem-drivers/hsf/) and in 8.10 with the paid (or free if you don't mind 14.4k) drivers from linuxant (http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/). Hopefully dell will start shipping computers with 8.10 so they'll release drivers that work with 8.10.

After installing the deb package, just do sudo wvdialconfig, fill in your connection info in wvdial.conf and everything should be up and running. I tried using alien to convert the 64bit rpm to deb but it wouldn't complete the installation. So if you're on 64bits hardy you'll have to compile the driver from source but that's a fairly simple task if you follow the instructions.

Might be easier and possibly cheaper than trying to track down a working hardware modem.

Item# 280300520604 has one USRWinmodem and a USR Hardware modem USR0778. It appears to be another member of the 5610 family. 5610a and 5610b may work. I don't know about this one.

I am sure that it will connect and work well but if it is recognized I don't know.

Any clues?

You still have to do some work even if Ubuntu detects your modem.
But Ubuntu detecting your modem is a very important step.

As I wrote earlier, I had no problems dialing up to AT&T prior to July 2007 when I switched to Verizon DSL.

I am quite happy with the way this modem works the way it is. It grabs a good connection and holds it well. Did about 60Mb downloads last night and lost connection once, got it right back. All I run is Hardy and it gets along just fine in a sort of plutonic relationship with this modem.

It works, I don't mess with it. I need it too much to contact the forums when I screw up other things, something I am very good at

ranch hand,

You keep saying your modem is not recognized.

It is. The output of the lspci command proves it.

That is the first but not only step to getting dial-up working in Ubuntu.

You and I have the same modem.

Dial-up wasn't that easy in Windows either. AT&T gave people a CD for installing software as did Earthlink. In Linux, we don't have that luxury since those ISPs concentrate on helping the Windows users only. We the users have to do a bit more work.

Anyway, those modems being auctioned on eBay *should* work in Linux.

I don't think you understand. My modem is working fine. I could not be sending this if it weren't.

It just is not in all the files that it supposedly is in. There is nothing in ttyS0, for instance. This is where the modem is mounted. Wvdial to this day claims I have no modem. Once again, the modem is there and it is working great.

I just find it interesting that it is working when half, or better, of the files are not there. I think this says a lot about the robustness of linux in general and Ubuntu in particular.

I do NOT have a problem with my modem.

I actually think it is quite easy to get the thing to work under Ubuntu compared to MS. It is certainly easier to configure for your ISP. I use pppconfig and then set up the network manager with the same information - service provider, user name, password, host(s), location (ttyS0), and in network manager the preferences (all) - click ok and the thing dials and connects.

It dials on bootup which some people think is a problem, I don't. I like it to be up and going when I get in as the first job of the day is to check the weather. This is important to those of us that work out in it.

We did have a problem with FF coming up offline but they fixxed that with an option in the newest update.

Thanks for your concern but I really don't need help with the modem. I do wonder why yours was good out of the box and it took me about 2 weeks to hunt down the answers. It took that long because I had Vista at the time and could only get on line with it over a crappy connexant winmodem. About 2.9K on a good day.

I also find it interesting that I used the CD that came with the modem to install in Vista and it works faster under Ubunto. Vista would get up to about 3.9K on a good day and Ubuntu gets 4.4 on an average day. Yes, this is slow. We have the last line in our area and are 54 miles from from the providers modem.

Seeing how the boss died back in July and the cows ship out on the 13th, this job is coming to an end. I will probably be here until spring sometime when the "hairs" have their auction (another piece of american agriculture down the tubes). We bought a place in town and when I get there I will have access to ADSL and be about 5 blocks from the provider. I have a feeling that that will be a little faster.

I will not be removing the modem as I hope to go to another ranch job and they all are on dialup or satilite which I think is too pricey.

We need another computer so my wife has one in town. Her mother is across the street from the house we bought. We need to keep an eye on her. I think I will build one and send this one there. I want the dialup modem for backup even then and will just have to change the number.

This really is a lot of fun. I have not enjoyed computing for years. I kind of like the change.

I understand that your modem is working fine.

I am failing to understand some of the points your raise about your modem in Ubuntu.

wvdial is similar to an .EXE file in Windows, you run it to dial out. This is not a file that you edit.

Before you can run wvdial, you need to run sudo wvdialconf which generates /etc/wvdial.conf file. Are you saying that you don't have the file /etc/wvdial.conf?

Also, if you PC has a serial port at the back (it's a 9-pin DB9 connector) then your modem is most likely at /dev/ttyS1 with the serial port being located at /dev/ttyS0.

Because I re-installed Ubuntu 8.04 (didn't like Ubuntu 8.10), I just now did the above commands. Since you and I have the same modem, you should see the same thing.

Anyway, I am keeping my modem as the 3rd backup. My AT&T mobile broadband account that I use when I am at work is my backup.

The modem is on ttyS0. I had to move it to get it there because it was, origanaly at 5 which is where the serial is. Our kernal only supports modems from ttyS0 to ttyS3 so I had to move it.

This box had no serial port at all. I put that card in to have a paralell port for my old printer.

Wvdial, to this day, claims that I have no modem.

for your entertainment, here is my Wvdial conf contents:

[Dialer Defaults]
Phone =
Username =
Password =
New PPPD = yes

Basically wvdial is one way to get to the internet by modem. There are others.

If wvdial is the badge - we don't need no stinking badge.

Try that in windows.

I decided to try wvdial again. It has been several months and several updates sence I last tried it.

The good news is that it did not screw up my ability to connect which is what it used to do. I also once again have things in my /etc/wvdial.conf file.

It still works the same, it dials and the password will not go through, it tries a few times and then freaks out and the terminal crashes.

Basically, what I need to do now is reedit the file back to nothing so that anyone reading the thing does not read our password out of the file. This strikes me as a rather silly security hole. When you are done in pppconfig and close the terminal the password is not readable anymore.

I installed 8.10 and can't get that wucker going because they changed the network manager. I also installed Mandriva 2009 and it configured the modem during instalation, very easy and smooth and it works. I don't like the rest of it all that well but modem support is great.

I will play with it a bit. KDE does not appeal to me. The rpm does not look as attractive as deb.

Interesting though and will learn a lot, I am sure.

For dial-up i've used KPP for a few years and it's the first thing i install if not included in the O.S. I love it, looks and works great. It is in Synaptic and works with genome also.

ranch hand
January 19th, 2009, 03:09 AM
That is interesting. I don't really like the look or feel of KDE, but I wonder if it is more modem friendly.

I have a n instalation of Mandriva2009 and it configured my modem during the instalation proccess. It does say that I need to get kppp-provider as there is a problem if the connection is lost. It won't redial, only dials on boot up. It must be using kppp though.

I have tried gnome-ppp and it does not work in 8.10. I may have the wrong version.

Kppp is in synaptic. I have no connection to the internet with the 8.10 instalation. This makes getting apps tough. I need to get in Hardy, where I am now, find a downloadable deb package, download, transfer the file(s) to the 8.10 partition, copy the dependancies, reboot to 8.10. Then I can pull up synaptic and check to see if the dependancies are met.

Kppp has 9 dependancies, 6 unmet. Of those 6, 1 has 25 dependancies, 17 unmet. Of those 17, 1 has 45 dependancies, I don't know how many are unmet yet.

Now some are duplicates. That 1/6 has 5/17 that are the same as the other 5 dependancies of kppp, so I get to kill more than one bird with a stone. None the less it will take days. I will probably whittle away at it.

In Mandriva I get the same result that I get in Hardy. That is that while I am connected, the network monitor, while showing connection speed, claims I am not connected. Hardys' network manager makes the same claim.

In Hardy, to configure a connection, sudo pppconfig, go through that, then congigure in network manager. Takes less than 10 minutes. After that you can connect/disconnect through the manager applet.

In Intrepid they have changed the network manager and it no longer works. I am tring to get wvdial to work (never did in Hardy) and I am having no luck so far.

Everybody needs a hobby though.

kppp is a gui front end for pppd and gnome ppp is a gui fronend for wvdial.

pppd seems to be the problem. I installed gppp as it is supposed to be the default dialler for intrepid, but not installed. Strange.

The poor thing has a nervous breakdown when used. Dials fine. Ends up with about a mile of attemps that all end up with the same error - can't use pppd.

As far as I can tell the info in wvdial is correct and I ran pppconfig and it is correct (has the same info as in hardy and that works without wvdial).

January 24th, 2009, 09:30 AM
OK. Switched to my playtime installation.

I put gppp on here too. Disabled the config through network manager. Connected through gppp.

I don't like it but it works and you can't comlain about that.

So, I would say that this is a problem with Intrepid ranther than any thing else.

I hope the OP is still with us because I have some good news and some crow to eat.

If you get rid of gnome-ppp and any other attempts that you have made to connect, wvdial works very well indeed. I am on Intrepid right now.

So thank you to all you folks who insisted wvdial works. It has never worked for me in Hardy, can't say why, don't know. Works like a charm here though if you don't go screwwing around with other things.

I don't know about the OP, but I am happy. I learned something (I really can, just knock my head on the wall a few times).

Now maybe I can get into real trouble with Intrepid. I broke Hardy several times after gettting connected. Just a kid in a candy shop.

Thanks again all, what a great bunch.

Just thought I should update this a little.

Gnome-ppp did not work because it could not get into the pppd files. Your user needs to be part of the "dip" group, what ever that is. This group does nt show up in my Users an Groups manager.

Just typing wvdial into terminal will connect you. It does not seem to be a very stable connection but it works.

Searching for gnome-ppp comes up with several bug reports.

<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-ppp/+bug/289575>

This page has the answer to joining the dip group. Run the


ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd

and you should get


-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273064 2008-10-16 03:51 /usr/sbin/pppd


Gnome-ppp should now work and it seems to reconnect when you loose connection and everything.
