If something is complaining about wvdial.conf then have a look at it, it lives very near the bottom of /etc. If it looks like mine:
- Code: Select all
New PPPD = yes
ie. empty, then that may be your problem, but if you have tried to configure Chestnut or Gnome ppp then there should be something in there because most of these programs are just front ends for wvdial anyway.
Of course if it is empty then your next question is going to be "What do I put in it?" and here is a whole can of worms. Swapping theories about wvdial.conf used to be about as common as variations on xorg.conf a year or so ago, but I thought (hoped) that had gone away, it has for me, but obviously not for you. I can only suggest that if this is the problem (and I don't know that it is for sure) then you do a google search for 'wvdial.conf' along with the model name of your modem and see what you get.
Good luck anyway.
