TATA Docomo 3G USB Modem (India, Model: MF631) HSUPA connection issues
I have these set of problems on my Debian (KDE)
knetworkmanager detected and configured the datacard (TATA Docomo 3G model: MFE631).
But when I try o connect it doesn't connect on the first attempt. I have to manually disconnect and reconnect the modem, and also keep retstarting Knetworkmanager.
After 4 or 5 (if I'm lucky) such attempts, it connects. Sometimes I have to connect to my roommates wireless, and then on the next 1-2 attempts this starts working.
Recently, a new problem started. This might be more of a n/w issue though. The status is connected but I can't open any webpages. The request times out. Then I again
connect to the wireless and visit the pages, then I can again browse with the Docomo.
Any ideas on how to proceed?
Things I have/had tried:
TATA DOCOMO application doesn't even detect the device.
usb mode switch is working fine (I think).
I used to have a wvdial based thing working, previously. But then I had to configure a wireline also. After that, wvdial doesn't connect even after I replaced the old wvdial.conf file.
It connects and immediately disconnects. I can't post message now, as I don't a n/w disruption right now :).
I don't want to switch to Gnome, so most of the Ubuntu forums are out, they have Gnome/Ubuntu specific fixes. On Debian I'm still searching. Though I'm not even sure how to describe the problem.
If anybody here has any ideas, pls do help.
Thanks in Adv.
