I have a USB phone modem E160X Huewi type
It is supplied by iPrimus in Australia and connects to the Optus mobile tower on about 900 Meg frequency.
Fedora 14 is giving me trouble in that it will connect regularly for a time , maybe up to a month, and then I'll boot up and it does not connect .
Using the network applet I try disconnecting and reconnecting , editing the settings , allowing mobile modems and not allowing etc but it keeps asking for my password.
I edit the settings and put the password in right and it still asks for it . I answer the password when it asks and it still does not connect , time and time again. I have had this on about 4 occasions now and once it disconnects I cannot get it started again even as root.
The only way I have found is to plug it into a windows machine where it works immediately and then next day or so put it in the Fedora machine and sometimes it works .
I'm suspecting the tower must close me off after x tries if my modem ties to connect without a password and some how the password is being dicked around by Fedora
Can anyone advise me on what happens during this connection and what may be wrong ?
