I'm trying to connect to a dialup service here in the Philippines. I used to use dialup in the UK and pppconfig worked fine for me setting up my stuff. Since moving over here I have moved to 2.6 and udev and now, for some reason, I just can't get my modem to connect - I'm not sure if it is my set up or the ISP
So here are my configs:
# This optionfile was generated by pppconfig 2.1.1. # # hide-password noauth connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/blast" debug /dev/ttyS2 115200 defaultroute noipdefault user "firstname.lastname@example.org" remotename blast ipparam blast # Options asyncmap 0 crtscts lock hide-password modem proxyarp noipx persist # This chatfile was generated by pppconfig 2.1.1. # Please do not delete any of the comments. Pppconfig needs them. # # ispauth PAP # abortstring ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT VOICE ABORT 'NO DIALTONE' ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' ABORT 'NO ANSWER' ABORT DELAYED ABORT ERROR # modeminit '' ATZ # ispnumber OK-AT-OK "ATDT4142020" # ispconnect CONNECT dc # prelogin # ispname # isppassword # postlogin # end of pppconfig stuff
And my logs are here, you'll have to compare errors and messages manually as i couldn't get them in one config
ack... it's been so long since I had to deal with dial up... did you try wvdial?
I found this when googling: http://www.linux.net.nz/pppconfig/ - it might be helpful
additional googling said that a similar messages listing was "pppd not connecting to the modem" but no solution was provided - are you positive ttyS2 is correct?
no - basically - i'm pretty sure!
it's com3 in windows - see it was /dev/modem before i switched to udev - it gets ok signals from the modem before it fails tho - and if it is not connect to the phone line I get a no dial tone error - so i am pretty sure it is right
random off-the-cuff idea:
different phone systems in the philippines? do they require different initialization strings? maybe try google in philippinese (I made that up, is that a language?) and check for ppp stuff
My main issue is not being able to hear the modem audio output - i think either ALSA is preventing access to the sound system or it's not configure (i think there maybe a kernel option)
If i could hear what the modem is doing i would have a much better idea of what is wrong. I have tried kppp as that has some more newb options like query and the modem is def in the right place and is def dialing but i dunno if the line is busy (frequently is) or there is some other error
so how can i fix the speaker?
Symptoms sound similar to a prob i had ages ago. have you tried swapping the modem/phone cable. you should at least hear the small relay clicking in and out when trying to dialup. if not, its maybe not even hearing a dial tone itself.
so how can i fix the speaker?
my system uses intel-8x0m for the modem, and intel-8x0 for notmal audio - if both are loaded, niether work... but each one works on its own
ahh - i have the same! Do you use your onboard modem? I am using a Psion Gold Card - i dunno what the module is for the integrated one.
Anyway, this AM i disabled all the sound modules, no alsa and i had PC speaker beeps back -you know the annoying tab complete ones? They are blocked when I use ALSA. So I tried the modem again with kppp and i could hear it dialing and following the kppp log i could see what was going on, and, after a few goes, I am connected and writing to you on ppp.
Now I just have to compare my kppp configs to my pppconfigs, which I am certain are the same - the initialization is the same phrak, then i can just use pon - problem is i really need the sound and the modem sound together so i can here what it is doing - any ideas?
ok - i finally found out that slmodem works with my Intel Corp. PCTEL 2304 WT V.92 MDC Modem (i added that for people searching later)
So now i'll try that modem too - both with the slamr and the intel-8x0m - i have always had the latter loaded anyway but now i hopefully have a daemon script that can actually make it work
