How to connect using chestnut-dialer
I'm trying to connect to the internet using vodafone datacard (dongle) on vector linux 7 (standard). WICD does not help to connect 3G datacards. Can anyone walk-through how to connect using chestnut-dialer? Or is there any other way to connect? Thanks for the help in advance.

The default on VL7 is WICD. WICD doesnot help when using 3G datacard (dongle) There is no gnome network manager.

Ah, so. As this is a Slackware forum I looked right pass you are using Vector Linux.

A couple of years ago when I was traveling more I used Chestnut Dialer to connect to the 'Net via my cellphone. Worked like a charm.

Perhaps you can find the information you will need in one of these threads:
