Network Manager - Mobile Broadband (vodafone) Problem

Hello,

I'm having some problems with my PCMCIA mobile Internet Card (HUAWEI E870) on network manager (with Gnome ppp it works fine, but require root privileges).

Now I tried to use the new Network Manager functionality, but can't figure out why it's not working. I went to "Edit connections" and set up the basic settings for "Mobile Broadband" (Number, Username, Password).

If I try to connect it fails and the syslog says:

Jun 21 12:01:16 localhost NetworkManager: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) starting connection 'A1 broadband'
Jun 21 12:01:16 localhost NetworkManager: <info> (ttyUSB0): device state change: 3 -> 4

Jun 21 12:01:18 localhost pppd[9011]: Connection terminated.
Jun 21 12:01:19 localhost pppd[9011]: Exit.

Does anyone know what "<WARN> impl_ppp_manager_need_secrets(): Cleared secrets, but setting didn't need any secrets." means and how to correct it. I searched on Google but without success.

Thanks for your help!
