/etc/network/interfaces wvdial method
I am using wvdial to connect and that works fine but I need to activate my internet connection on bootup. Apparently, the file in /etc/network/interfaces is supposed to do that automatically but does not.
my interfaces file looks like this:
can anyone tell me the correct syntax to edit the file for the wvdial method??
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
iface ppp0 inet ppp
I googled and checked the man pages for interfaces network, which handles the ifup and ifdown commands. I was told that any connection setup in /etc/network/interfaces with auto will be brought up on boot automatically. If I replace 'lo' with wvdial would that be the corrrect syntax????
Anyone have the same problem getting internet connect at boot up?
