Mandrake 10.1 with SpeedTouch USB Modem


I'm trying to get linux Mandrake 10.1 to connect to the internet, Using the Control Center failed, even though it recognised the Alecetel USB modem. I then attempted to install the correct drivers myself, they installed fine and i got them configured right and then this happens when i run speedtouch-start:

Modem hangup
Connection terminated.
using channel 1892
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/3
sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x7f <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0x4df82b61>]
Script pppoa3 -vpi 0 -vci 38 finished (pid 9728), status = 0xff
Modem hangup
Connection terminated.
Couldn't get channel number: Input/output error
Couldn't get channel number: Input/output error
Couldn't get channel number: Input/output error
using channel 1893
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/3
sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x80 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xa890cbb6>]
Script pppoa3 -vpi 0 -vci 38 finished (pid 9746), status = 0xff
Script pppoa3 -vpi 0 -vci 38 finished (pid 9747), status = 0xff
Script pppoa3 -vpi 0 -vci 38 finished (pid 9748), status = 0xff
Script pppoa3 -vpi 0 -vci 38 finished (pid 9749), status = 0xff
Modem hangup
Connection terminated.

This happens over and over again, (channel 1,2,3...1893 and would continue)

Can anyone help.

I had exactly the same problem, and despite the advice here and on the Net, I ended up going back to my ISP and exchanging the Alcatel with a SpeedStream and blowing about $20 on an ethernet card.

That was back on Mandrake 9.1, and I was hoping that the issue would be resolved by Mandrake 10.
