Is this still a problem in gNewSense 3.0?

1. I've tested a few days, that practive works OK everytime.

2. Sometimes (rarely) NM connects OK during the OS startup. Usually I need poff -a / pon to connect.

More. Just for information how it behaves.

(Before these logs, I was logging out ouf GNOME into the gdm entry screen with login/password input screen.)

From the login and GNOME startup, NM tries to connect to wireless networks:

Then, pon dsl-provider:

Then, I issued pon dsl-provider and it connected quickly.

P.S. I always have `lock' option in `/etc/ppp/options'.

It seems that solution is to call "sudo poff -a", then to make sure "less +F /var/log/syslog" displays that pppd finishes all of its activities and ends, then to call "sudo pon dsl-provider".

This probably solves this strangeness issue.

I will see if this practice will have stable behavior everytime.

Without poff, I had several "permission denied" messages today.

Thanks for including the extra information. I don't use NM in this way, so hopefully someone else will be able to think of a solution down the line.

One more observation.

  • At deltah startup, no pppoe auto-connect occurs (despite that I have set it to occur, at pppoeconfig utility dialogs).
  • Sometimes, when I do "pon dsl-provider", it responds with "permission denied". When I do "pon dsl-provider" immediately after that, it says "auth success".
  • However LUbuntu's NM's pppoe connects happily everytime the system starts up. LUbuntu v.11.10.

After deltah bootup, all connects OK. After a hour of work, echoreq responses stop being received, and all disconnects.

This does not occur at neither lubuntu nor windows.

Now it says "permission denied" at syslog after "sudo pon dsl-provider". Though the user and password are correct.

However the NetworkMgr at Lubuntu 11.10 connects OK.

  • I left-click on Network Manager (NM) tray icon;
  • The dropdown menu contains only one item: "Manual configuration";
  • I left-click "Manual configuration";
  • I choose Unlock at the settings dialog (see the screenshot attached), choose a location which I previously saved (added), and tick pppoe checkbox (red circle on a screenshot).

P.S. Currently I have run pppoeconfig and setup all, and use a manual command-line "pon dsl-provider" to connect. It connects safely, without a 15 signal.

Where are you ticking that?

1) I check [v] pppoe in NM config applet
2) It auto-unchecks it
