Marvin,

Up to the wvdialconf command, the text below was from the console -
after the wvdialconf command, the laptop froze - and I have attached a

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,


Ian

Sorry, no modem was detected!  Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?
