I've been trying, for quite some time now, to setup a Linux box
to use my 9110 to dialout and connect to the Internet using wvdial
(the wvdial.conf that I'm using is at
http://www.linux.ie/download/connectionscripts/wvdial.conf and I use
"#wvdial 9110 dol" to try and get a connection).
pppd does get started each time, but with no tangible results - I
suspect this is because I have Stupid Mode set to 1. But when I do have
Stupid Mode set to zero the connection gets dropped immediately.
Afterwards, if pppd gets started, ifconfig lists only the loopback
device and the networkcard.
Now, the 9110 does not support _hardware_ flow control.
It does however support software flow control, but I'm not sure if
I might be right in having crtscts left enabled.
I've tried turning off flow control support on the 9110 and disabling
crtscts in /etc/ppp/options.conf and then trying all over again, but
nothing gets any further - still no connection. Investigating this
further with "pstree -paG" shows that wvdial launched pppd with crtscts
mentioned on the command line. I can't find a way of stopping this.
can anybody spot where I'm going wrong?
