Hello

I used wvdial and settings successfully applied by another geekzone user.  Unfortunately wvdial scans USB devices looking for a modem.  It causes my USB camera to stop working.  Also, although I got a connection to the network, I couldn't ping anything.

I have moved the T-stick to a laptop with Ubuntu desktop installed.  The plan was to get it working using Network Manager, then transfer the settings to the webcam server.

The latest version of Ubuntu Network Manager still only has inbuilt settings for Vodafone and not Telecom.  Telecom needs to be configured manually.  Attached are screen shots of the settings I have applied.  These don't work for me.  If anyone can spot an error, that would be great.


Below is the Network Manager log file.  I don't know enough about Ubuntu to figure out what the problem is.  It can't seem to identify the modem properties.

I just noticed your APN settings, give internet.telecom.co.nz a go or direct.telecom.co.nz (make sure you have got a firewall like iptables or firestarter running with the direct APN) - What kind of camera have you got?
