Topic # 16284 2-Oct-2007 19:40

Hi folks,

Who can help me solve my LCP authentication problems with my new Motorola V3xx and my MacBook Pro? I am using Ross Barkman's Motorola HSPDA scripts and the APN information provided by Paradoxim here. (I have also tried different APNs as listed by Fei, to no avail.)

I am a complete novice in this area (and most others), although I did get GPRS working nicely on my Nokia 6230...

Can anybody shed any light on how to fix this?

My log is as follows:

Okay not much at deciphering logs so gonna ask some questions.

Im guessing your using USB cable?  Make sure your V3xx isnt in Mass Storage mode and make sure its in dial modem mode when connected by USB.

Thanks for your reply, Mikal! I have been trying USB cable and Bluetooth and the result is exactly the same. The USB connection on the phone is also set to "data connection".

Basically, I don't think the problem is with the laptop communicating with the phone or the phone being able to communicate with the network; I think the problem is that the PPP authentication is not working for whatever reason.

My next step is to try and get it working with Windows and see if that helps me tweak the script I have for the Mac.

Okay just to double check on your connection details when you go into network configuration in system preferences whether you pick USB/Bluetooth all fields should be empty.  Under the PPP Options the only tickbox ticked under Advanced Options should be
-Use TCP Header compression

assuming you have got it from a vodafone store it should work out of the box with ross barkmans script. I did it with a V6 maxx esentially same phone as yours, after a little research with his scripts.
Only issue was bluetooth preferences becoming corrupted due to mac OSX Yell and preventing me from dialing.

Ahh, therein lies perhaps my problem: Mine is a Malaysian import. Time to get flashing, methinks.

Do you mean edit the settings in the Web Sessions menu on the phone?

FIXED! Thanks everyone for your input. Turns out the Vodafone Customer Services monkey hadn't provisioned something properly at their end, and the Solutions Support guy has now fixed it. All hail Ross Barkman and his scripts, because they really do work straight out of the box -- as long as Vodafone gets their bit right...

Not excellent for HSPDA, but not bad I suppose...

When you are in an HSDPA area you get a 3+ icon along the top of the screen rather then the standard 3G icon

This is what I am getting right now over Bluetooth. I am in Milford on the North Shore of Auckland. Last night's result *was* also HSDPA, but I suppose these things fluctuate.

That looks a little better, this is what I got over USB with 3G+


Speedtest

I think the top speed is supposedly about 3.6MB/s down?

I am also in Milford and the highest speed I have managed fom speedtest.net on my V6 was 2.5mbit down - I am near Carmel College if that helps. My phone jumps betwen 3 cells and Miliford (Near Civic Video/Air New Zealand I beleive) seems to have the fastest throughput.

I can't try for you right now as my V6 has no Flex on it but if you'd like I can try some Vodem speed tests later for you to compare to
