Internet connection with KPPP dies (Modem HSP56MR)


Hi folks.


I'm running slackware 10.1... when I install the driver (slmodem 2.9.9 for smartlink modem compatible ) and setup kppp with to connect with my ISP it connects perfect. But when I just finish and shutdown the pc and later I start it again and try to connect to internet, the KPPP dies ... or sometimes it just give "no dial tone" message...

1. I totally sure that there's dial tone.
2. I suppose it's the modem driver .. but in Slck9.0 never had this trouble.
3. When KPPP dies and I restart the driver, the symbolic link goes to /dev/pts1 up to dev/pts4, etc.
4. Is there any other internet connection program that I can use ?... I tried wvdial but when I install the wvStreams libraries some error appears... and I red that wvdial won't work on slack.

Thanks if any of you can help me ...

I used chestnut-dialer ( available from sourceforge ). Can you check the moden under windows? I've had the same error caused by the jack on the modem lead comming loose.

wvdial and wvstreams from http://www.linuxpackages.net/
works well.

Still need config as per http://www.linuxlookup.com/html/guides/ppp-wvdial.html

Hi priller


I already check it on Windows... the modem works perfect on Suse 8.0, 9.1 and fedora 2 and windows . I haven't tried on Caldera because I used this distro for RTLinux.

I'm not sure what you mean with:

Hi WilliamS

I already tried to install wvdial ... also it requires the wvStreams lbraries .... I had some problems, here they are.
Code:
linking libwvqt.so... /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.4/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status 
make: *** [libwvqt.so] Error 1
The solution was to type ./configure --with-qt=no

it install ok. but when I tried to install wvdial I got this messages of error.

Code:
wvdialer.cc:98: error: invalid initialization of reference of type '    WvConfigSection&' from expression of type 'WvList<WvConfigSection>::Iter' 
wvdialer.cc: In member function `void WvDialer::start_ppp()': wvdialer.cc:1020:
 error: no matching function for call to `WvStream::WvStream(
int&)' /usr/local/include/wvstreams/wvstream.h:605: error: candidates are:    WvStream::WvStream(const WvStream&) /usr/local/include/wvstreams/wvstream.h:70: error:    WvStream::WvStream() 
make[1]: *** [wvdialer.o] 
Error 1 make: *** [src] Error 2
No idea how to solve this .. Right now I'm connected trhough KPPP, I found something "bizarre" ... after reboot I have to uninstall and install the modem driver to make the connection works... this is kind of annoying because sometimes you need to start quickly to do some important stuff. Also the modem driver is not stable as I would like it be. I guess I'll try with a lower version maybe 2.9.6 (That's the actual version of the slmodem driver that use on Suse and Fedora.)

Hummm if somebody has problems with this post it here ... I have done some extra steps for use of KPPP on Slackware 10.1


Thanks. and PS: The web page you suggest say somehing like ... download the rpm file ... I know that Slack has the rpm pakage included .. but does it work??

I had forgotten, but need to download the wvdial and wvstreams packages ( both .tgz) for 10.0. I'm also using 10.1, and they work with it.
The actual url is http://www.linuxpackages.net/search_...vdial&ver=10.0
and
http://www.linuxpackages.net/search_...reams&ver=10.0

Then just install as root by typing installpkg <name of pkg>
No .rpm or .tar.gz required.

Re: "PS: The web page you suggest say somehing like ... download the rpm file ... I know that Slack has the rpm pakage included .. but does it work??"

I included that as a guide as to what to do after install, as you need to run
/usr/local/bin/wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
to fill in your user stuff etc.

wvDial

Hi WilliamS

The install pkg of wvstreams and wvdial worked great, although I can't get connection with this...

It shows the Ip addresses but don't show the message "remote DNS ..... Press control + c for termination...."

I'm sure that on Suse just before the ips appears on the shell, a message sayig "starting ip-up script" appears .. and not sure if it's the exact message ... but i'm sure that something like that appears and on slack doesn't appears... finally I found the problem .. oh btw, the cable is not loose ..... there's something with the driver and maybe with the kernel ... I guess the installation does not write correctly the sysconf. file .... I'll be working on it 'till I solve this problem..

Thanks for the help and the website you gave me ... had helped a lot.


Sayoonara.

Might also try pppsetup (as root).
Any error message might tell you something.

slmodem driver

WilliamS

Are you using the same driver of smarlink?, because I just figure out that when I run at shell

Code:
 # /usr/sbin/slmodemd
Appear the comments saying that the modem in liked to /dev/pts/2 through /dev/ttySL0 and it's ok. but the modem doesn't seems to response.

Yesterday I was listen to music on the PC and when I uninstall the driver and re-install it again and run /usr/sbin/slmodem the sound raise up like about 15% of the normal volumen .. that's when I realize that something has to be with it ...

Do you have any idea of the exact commands to type just before run the modem with /usr/sbi..... ?

Regret, I know nothing about slmodem.
I have a hardware modem, and just installed wvdial as described. It worked.
In my laptop, I have a software modem (winmodem) and bought the driver from www.linuxant.com
