speedtouch won't connect (ppp interface wont come up no matter what)

i was using speedtouch without problems before.

But ever since I downloaded the speedtouchconf configuration utility to see if I could improve the time it takes to bring up the modem, it doesn't work anymore.

I run the, which configures the files correctly and prepares the /etc/ppp/peers/adsl peer. I pass the right vci vpi numbers etc. I get the right microcode (the same I was using before) and it's correctly written to /etc/ppp/microcode.dat as it should.

so when i run the /etc/init.d/speedtouch start
it correctly executes modem_run and pppd call adsl, but I never get a ppp interface up, so it doesn't connect.


Now if I try to go back to the old style (without speedtouchconf, but just the regular driver setup), I run:

"speedtouch-setup" which sets up the speedtouch-pppoe peer successfully
"speedtouch-start" which runs modem_run correctly, and pppd call with the right peer. But again, the ppp interface wont come up. Here's the error msg that I get w/ "speedtouch-start":
# speedtouch-start
Starting ADSL connection...
pppoe: ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Session 0: No such device
Serial connection established.
Couldn't get channel number: Input/output error
Serial link disconnected.
Script pppoe -I tap0 -s finished (pid 1056), status = 0x1
Serial connection established.
pppoe: send (sendPacket): Network is down
and a lot more after that as it continues trying to connect in a loop
