To anyone with an alcatel speedtouch, or usb/dsl gurus!
Am suffering with this thing. I run RH7 with a newly installed 2.4.16 kernel. pppoatm patches not needed so far as I can tell. Sarlib etc all done as per howto at linux-usb. Install pppd 2.4.0-2 using rpm when I plug in modem and start up pppd, I see this in /var/log/messages and the first few lines in the terminal.
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so loaded.
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: PPPoATM plugin_init
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: PPPoATM setdevname_pppoatm
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: PPPoATM setdevname_pppoatm - SUCCESS
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: pppd 2.4.0b1 started by root, uid 0
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: Using interface ppp0
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> 1.50
Dec 20 00:56:57 jimsdesktop /etc/hotplug/net.agent: assuming ppp0 is already up
Dec 20 00:57:27 jimsdesktop pppd: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
The speedmgmt module shows the following errors...
usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_BULK failed dev 2 ep 0x85 len 512 ret -110
preceding (timeout) error messages are normal
Modem initialised at 544kbit/s downstream and 288kbit/s upstream
The modem lights come on properly, but pppd clearly timesout the connection.
So I installed pppd-2.4.0b2 using rpm. Now I see nothing in the terminal, but same messages in logfile.
The config files are as per the howtos, my vpi/vci is 1.50, my username/password are as for my previous dialup
My interpretation is that this is a ppp problem, usb and the modem itself seem to work. I've searched the net without success, basically says this error is due to pppd config, but everything seems to be right.
Do you have any suggestions??
Just realised the log is with pppd beta but messages are the same:smash: :smash:
