Huawei E220 HSDPA modem doesn't read DNS with Knetworkmanager


I have a weird problem on my laptop. Everything works okey on PC though.

I’m using kNetworkManager on my OpenSuse 11.2 on PC.
Everything works fine there with the following settings:

  1. Make a new GSM Connection in kNetworkManager and enter settings there
  2. Edit etc/sysconfig/network/config file and set …DNS_Policy from “auto” to “”
  3. Enter openDNS to /etc/resolv.conf (nameserver

It works like that on my PC.

I did the same on my laptop. The modem connects fine, but the DNS’es ain’t resolved. So skype etc will work, but no pages will open in Firefox for example.

What else should I need to do to make this work?

It’s weird it works the SAME way on my PC, but doesn’t on my laptop. EEEK
Any help greatly appreciated

Please have a look on your Laptop: What is the content of the file /etc/resolv.conf ? Please report (you can omit the comment lines).


I finally game up on knetworkmanager on my laptop.

After 2 days fight i figured out how to connect through wvdial custom script and kinternet.

ifup is still on top.
I configured modem through yast.

The problem with ppp was in username and password.
The username should have been * and password should stay empty.

After these changes, modem connects, dns are read and it works perfectly :slight_smile:
