Gnome-ppp disconnect problem using an external usb modem for dialup
I posted this on the official Linux Mint forum but I guess no one there had this problem as I received no replies:
I am using gnome-ppp to connect to the internet through a dial-up connection using an external usb modem.
The problem is that when I use the gnome-ppp interface to disconnect, it doesn't, ie, if I then try to re-connect by clicking 'connect', gnome-ppp returns a msg saying that it cannot find the modem.
I must reboot to reconnect.
Is there a way around rebooting to reconnect?
