I have had an Optus 3G wireless connection working up to 6 weeks ago, however am now getting "Failed to initialise the modem (dialuppppclientservice.cpp.896). Have made no changes to eeepc during this period. Have deleted and created new network connection but still having same error


What interface does the card use, is it USB? Have you gotten the card working on this computer in the past?

First we need to check to see if the device is recognized. When the card is plugged in, do the lights flash? Please open up a terminal and type lshw -c network and paste the output here.

It is my hunch that the PPP connection is not configured properly.

If you use network manager, you may want to try updating to wicd. It is not necessary, but wicd is updated more frequently and is more likely to support your 3g card. You can update by opening a terminal and typing 'sudo apt-get install wicd'. Whether you are in network-manager or wicd make sure you select PPP as the connection type.

If that does not work, follow the instructions here. Create the file and script as you see here http://freshfoo.com/articles/using_optus3g_with_linux.html

I apologize if I don't respond in a timely manner, as it is getting late here in California. I assume you live in the UK. Perhaps another guide can take over in the mean time.

Good luck.

Entourage frozen/blocked


If your running OSX you can kill Entourage from the command line which is much more powerful way of killing a task that won't shut down.
Another way to kill applications is to open a terminal window using the Terminal application. In the window type top -u, making sure that all the characters are lowercase and a space is present between top and -u. A list of the top processes will appear in the window. Identify which process you wish to kill and note the PID or Process ID for that process and then type q. Then type kill -9 followed by a space and the PID. This will almost always kill the process. If the system says you do not have sufficient priviledges, then type sudo kill -9 followed by a space and the PID. SUDO enables you to type in system command and it will prompt you for the system administrator password before executing the command. Type in your password and the system will kill the process.
