huawei modem cant connect to internet opensuse 11.2

Hallo!I have just upgraded from openSUSE 11.0 to openSUSE 11.2.In 11.1 I was able to use my Huawei modem to connect to the internet.

I have tried to configure my 11.2 to connect to the internet via this modem but I have been unable to do so.I have placed the following settings on the KnetworkManager

Conection Name:ZAIN

I have left the PPP configurations as default.

The connection is shown as active.When I type the following commands from terminal the results are as folows

JOEY-SUSE:/home/JOEY # ifconfig

ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr: P-t-P: Mask:
RX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
RX bytes:230 (230.0 b) TX bytes:257 (257.0 b)

JOEY-SUSE:/home/JOEY # ping
connect: Network is unreachable

JOEY-SUSE:/home/JOEY # ping
ping: unknown host

How can I resolve this situation?Thanks.

Sounds like you do not have the latest version of networkmanager/knetworkmanger installed. There was a bug that would not update /etc/resolve.conf with the DNS servers. The latest update fixes this issue.

If that doesn’t work you may need to add a static DNS server in /etc/sysconfig/network/config. Doing this does not affect your other network connection profiles. You can either use the DNS servers for your ISP or one of Google’s public DNS servers.
