Being a complete novice at all things Linux; have just purchased a Eee PC 4G for my wife.
Tried to use her E169 Huawei HSDPA USB Virgin Broadboard Stick in the new computer & it does not register as modem and nor can I get it to even get it to configure at all.
Failing this I attempted to set up my E220 Huawei HSDPA USB Modem Optus Broadband; I got it to register as /dev/ttyUSB1 & /dev/ttyUSB2 but when it came to connection it failed. Tried to register it as a DIAL UP & LAN type modem.
Have attempted to get help from OPTUS & VIRGIN - that was a waste of time.
I have read most of your comments - but I feel I am missing some vital point (excuse my ignorance).
Can anyone assist with this matter?
you need to see pppd log files in /var/log/messages
or switch pppd to debug mode and see.
just use KPPP if you can
