View Full Version : [ubuntu] dialup and firefox

May 15th, 2008, 06:02 AM
I have been trying to figure out how to make Firefox automatically dialup. I am putting a machine that I am going to give to my sister. I has been using my broadband connection but my sister uses dialup. With the help of modemscan (a great program) I got the machine dialing and hooking up to my isp. I setup wvdial and also gnome ppp (same thing I guess) and found that after I connected with gnome I could open Firefox, set it to online (comes up in offline mode) and it takes off. I cannot find a simple way to make the dialup the default (I think this may be the problem)

In any case. Is there a way to define the dialup as the default. I noted some scripts to remove the 10/100 but I am not sure just how permanent that might be and, I am sure, dsl will be coming in time.

Thank you.......
