Unhappy usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 3165 Terminated

I really hope someone will help me bacuse this problem is driving me crazy!
I want to setup my network connection which is a Wan Miniport one!
When i try to activate the device i keep getting this error:

usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 3165 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" > /dev/null 2>&1

I am a complete begginer in Linux but i was looking around in the services list an i noticed a service called "dund - ...., PPP over RFCOMM Services" which i could not start. Are those 2 related in some way or i am completely wrong, doing a stupid question

I really hope someone will help me with this thing!

Thnx for ur time spent reading my problem!

What's a WAN miniport? I can't even find a good answer using 'google' (maybe I should use MS search ... hahaha)

That RFCOMM stuff is for Bluetooth.

Since I have no idea what a WAN miniport is and you haven't told us anything about your setup, I really can't say any more.

Just talking a guess here. Miniports are generally virtual connections. Best guess is that your internet comes over bluetooth(RFCOMM) as PPP, which feeds to the virtual port so that it appears(to the OS) like a regular wan connection. So, yah I think they are connected. No idea how to fix it.
