    3G Tethering Blackberry using Berry4All - troubleshooting

    My blackberry works tethered to my Windows Machine using the following parameters:

    Code:
    Disable IP Header Compression
    Make sure TCP/IP Properties (Advanced) "Use IP Header Compression" checkbox is NOT checked. To verify this, do these steps:
    Quote:
    1. Start Menu->Network Connections->"BlackBerry Modem"
    2. Click Properties Button
    3. Click Networking Tab
    4. Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
    5. Click Properties Button
    6. Click Advanced... Button
    7. Disable "Use IP header compression" checkbox
    8. Click all OK buttons to close all dialogs
    Also make sure you clear all these checkboxes, if you see any of these checked:
    Turn off "Enable Hardware Flow Control"
    Turn off "Enable Modem Error Control"
    Turn off "Enable Modem Compression"

    Using Karmic 9.10 I can tether it on 2G (EDGE) using the standard Berry4All (ppd scripts)


    Code:
    ian@ian-minihp:~/bbtether/conf$ nano rogers
      GNU nano 2.0.9                   File: rogers

    ipcp-accept-local

    noaccomp

    pap-restart 20
    lcp-restart 10

    noccp
    novj
    user wapuser
    password wap
    name wapuser
    #debug debug debug
    # does not exist in all pppd versions (osx)
    #replacedefaultroute
    
    connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f conf/rogers-chat"
    Normally it connects and PAP authorizes then just terminates connection giving the error
    Code:
    Could not determine local IP address
    so I googled it http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/ho...s.phtml#cndlia

    and it said that it is having trouble providing a local IP, so it suggested adding the following line:

    Code:
    10.0.0.1:
    And it no longer terminates and successfully stays connected with a remote IP even. But I cannot connect to it.

    The chatscript is working great - it is the pppd script that has some issues.

    I am trying to connect to Rogers in Canada (similar to ATT)

    are there any ppp guru's out there? How do I get a local IP?

    Re: 3G Tethering Blackberry using Berry4All - troubleshooting

    Which version of berr4all are you using? I could get tethering to work 2G/EDGE only with the newest version. After trying the version people suggested in the comments it no longer works. It is erroring out with your same error. I'd suggest removing it completely and reinstalling the newest version. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck on Rogers with the Berry4all on 3G/HSDPA.

    Thanks

    Hii..

    Try switch back to 3G after the connection is established at your BB phone.

    Its work for me.

    Any update on this?

    I've tried with a Bold 9000 and a Bold 9700 without success (on 3G).

    I too am able to connect on EDGE, but 3G gives me the
    "Could not determine local IP address"
    error.

    Connecting on EDGE and switching to 3G does not work for me. It either stays on EDGE speeds or disconnects completely.

    Could not determine local IP address
    Remove the novj option.
