Hi … i use mobile broadband in opensuse 12.2. Networkmanager recognize my mobile broadband provider but still i can not have internet connection. Modem just work fine on Windows. In my networkmanage, “Connection state” said it is “not enabled”. How to enable it? Is it the issue? Sorry for my poor english.
Are you using KDE Network Manager? If so, my ‘Enable mobile broadband’ is unchecked, but does not influence connectivity with any of the devices I use.
You might want to check status via rfkill
You can use the NM CLI interface too. Do you see your mobile device listed here?
nmcli con list
If the UUID (eg mine is b2bcfdd8-9c99-43c2-a921-2e4d4c0aae50 ) is listed you could try something like
nmcli con up uuid b2bcfdd8-9c99-43c2-a921-2e4d4c0aae50
For reference, I get
nmcli con up uuid b2bcfdd8-9c99-43c2-a921-2e4d4c0aae59 Active connection state: activating Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/5 state: activated Connection activated
If you don’t get connected, you’ll need to diagnose further. You could open a console, and examine the system messages
tail -f /var/log/messages
then try connecting vie the network manager. Capture what is reported and post back here. Make sure you enclose the output with CODE ‘#’ tags.
