im using SpeedTouch USB modem for my adsl connection
the problem is in order to get online
i have to be root and type these commands

modem_run -m -f /mgmt/mgmt.o

then i have to wait for the USB lights to be green

then i have to

pppd call adsl

i was wondering if there is anyway i can make these commands run at start up when i boot without having to be root, lets say. i can just boot with my user account and not having to type them
or is there a way i can use this commands as user

You could probably place them in your rc.local file to run at boot time..

Speedtouch ADSL

Hi mate,

I got the same speedtouch adsl modem.

I added the line :

/usr/sbin/stusb start&

to my rc.local file, and it works fine.

Put a lock above it also

touch /var/lock/subsys/local

that will sort it.
