[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.
