I have a adsl USB modem and am using the Eci Adsl drivers to connect to the net!!
I can connect and it works fine ..but i have the occasional problem!
for example i also have a XP box which i sometimes need to have the modem plugged into and when i unplug the modem and plug it into the linux box it boots up and then it doesnt load it
something like ... "Error enabling pp0 device - device not ready" even though it is plugged in
and so i have to shut down and unplug the modem for a few minutes...then plug it bak in and this seems to work !!! but this is all very time consuming and after all linux was meant/built to be on all the time wasnt it?
So i was thinking isnt there a way to manually activate the modem after bootup if it hasnt been picked up??
cos its really doing my nut in now lol
(this problem also happens when i disconnect by doing ifconfig ppp0 down to kill the connection! i have to restart afterwards!!!)
so i would really like a quick way to bring the modem bak up
