Having problem with wvdial


I have Micromax mmx300 usb modem. It works on XP. But when I tried to use it on Fedora 14, this is what happens:

Code:
[root@localhost Prashant]# wvdialconf
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Hi, I use a 3G usb modem, I have 2, but use only one.

When I started wvdial was recommended, it never worked for me. (No offence intended, it obviously works well for many, as I have read.)

I wonder, are you able to get the dns addresses, gateway address, speed (etc) for your device and ISP?
(also the kernel module-name required) mine uses the option module.

if so you may be able to set up the device without wvdial.

The config files are in
/etc/resolve.conf (for dns's)
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts (for ifcfg-ppp0, chat-ppp0, ifup-ppp0 script pin-ppp0 (password, empty on my system as it is governed by the sim card)/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.conf, /etc/sysconfig/network, /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0)

I was fortunate to have a version of M$win and was able to check the config files there, like netstat /an (-an for unix like systems) and route -n (/n for M$win) and a bit of web searching came up with the goods, But I had to load it from /etc/rc.local to initialise it at boot.

I hope this give you an avenue to search for, I have no idea about your type of modem, but if you'd like to see these config files I have listed, just ask.

Regards Glenn
