With this group's fabulous assistance, I have my HP Pavilian 8280's
IPW3945ABG wireless card successfully accessing the internet when I take it
out to the library, etc.
However, from home, I want to be able to at least connect via PPP on the
built-in modem, but I cannot get it to even see the modem, apparently.
(FWIW: Windows XP does see this modem and connect OK.)
I was using the GUI for setting up the network, but was also playing around
directly with the wvdial.conf file and running wvdial; I believe that the
problem is that I am not selecting the right device, but no matter which
one I keep getting told "Can't find modem" or the like.
Has anyone used dial-up modem connectivity here?
I am trying fedora core on a Toshiba Satellite (A105-S4334). I think I
have added support for the wireless hardware device (Intel 3945ABG),
because it is recognized by iwconfig and scanning with iwlist locates
multiple cells, however trying to activate it claims there is no link
present and to check the cable. Am I missing something that must be
manually configured (outside of the system-config-network gui)?
I am pretty certain the activate worked one time, so I restarted the
system to see if it would come up during start up and I have not been
able to reconnect.
