Re: modem diagnostic?
I hope you don't mind if I jump on this thread. I made the same mistakes
and now I need help!
I followed RunningLinux... I also used wvdial (and that works, dialing
up to AT&T here in Tucson, AZ). However, I need to dial other ISPs (this
is a portable). And they did not work with wvdial.
So, I decided to take a different path.
I removed PPP and then reinstalled ppp and pppconfig.
I ran pppconfig and created a profile.
Then I ran pon, I hear the dialtone, but it does not try to dial.
Connect script failed
abort on (BUSY)
abort on (NO CARRIER)
abort on (VOICE)
abort on (NO DIALTONE)
The script just cycles.
Thanks -- Randy
