I have a 3G modem (Sierra Compass 885). When I attached it on my openSuse 11.2, the Network Manager has deteced it. After that, using Network Manager, I configure the connection by filling the Dial number, Username, Password, and IPN. When I click OK the connection status always says “Waiting for authorization” and never connected.
Do you have any suggestion? :\ Any help will be very appreciated.
I had use of a Sierra Compass device up until recently, and used it successfully with kinternet dialling utility. You should be able to do the same with that, or wvdial if you prefer.
I remember messing with the hal fdi files, so that the device would be recognised by Network Manager, but it had the same symptoms as you described while trying to connect, so I gave up and treated it as high-speed modem instead. (That was with openSUSE 11).
