    [SOLVED] Antix/T-mobile help


    I posted this on antix forum and was directed here.

    I am having a problem with connecting to the internet on Antix M8
    . I'm with t-mobile broadband, and have a Huawei E160 usb modem. I have tried using Umtsmon, with not much luck.

    It finds the modem, but requires authentication. When I try to disable authentication, Umtsmon tells me that I should have root priveliges.

    I then log out, and try to log in as root, at which point antix login page tells me "Failed to issue login command" I have been using 'root' for password and user. I have to reboot and Antix defaults to demo.
    I have also tried the other dialup program in Antix,(gDial I think.) this just gets stuck on 'sending password'
    I am sure there is something I am not doing right, if anybody could help me I will be grateful.
    Thanks

    I would suggest reading the post linked to below, and then posting the info that it tells how to find.

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wir...tart-here.html

    Without this info, we can only guess at the best way to fix it.

    root password

    Ive tried logging out and logging in as root
    username="root"
    password="root"

    "failed to issue login comand"

    Antix detects my modem, logging onto tmobile uk is the problem.

    "It finds the modem, but requires authentication. When I try to disable authentication, Umtsmon tells me that I should have root priveliges."



    Anyway,I'll follow the steps in 'wireless-start here' and post the results.

You will be asked for your root password and the the app will open will root privileges. For terminal apps use su then type root password, from there on you will be running the terminal as root.




    Problem solved, Antix connected to the net.
    Once booted, menu-run <gksu umtsmon>
    create profile in umtsmon, unchecking authentication.
    run provider wizard
    connect......bingo
    Thanks everybody.

    I shall now close this post.
