    Hi.

    I’ve successfully setup zeroshell on an Alix6B2 with a Sierra Wireless MC8780.

    I can happily connect to APNs that do not require a username and password.

    How do I configure a username and password for APNs that do require those details?

    Italian mobile 3g operators do not use the username and password authentication that is only based on the SIM. Hence I cannot test this possibility. In any case, I think that the 3G connections with username and password just use the PAP protocol. In other words you could configure the pppd daemon to use it.

    When I created the 3G interface, a file ppp0.3G was created in the /tmp directory. If I add user XXX and password YYY to this file with the correct username and password and restart the service it connects. How can I make this change permanent?

    Could you post the file you have changed?

    When I created the 3G modem, the file ppp0.3G was created. The contents are in the section below. The log file at the bottom shows the connection attempts failing before the change to this file. The connection succeeded immediately on the next attempt after changing the file.

    I have change the username and password used in this email for obvious reasons. It would be great if the username and password parameters could be added to the 3G setup page.

    Thanks

    I agree it would by great to add this function to zeroshell, Polish operators uses password and user for authentication.

    Dear lechar

    Do you have any download speed problems when you choose port “/udev/ttyUSB2” as a data port?
    My download speed is limited to 1mb/s when i choose /udev/ttyUSB2 as dataport.
    You can check at “www.speedtest.net”
    If not, Could you please tell me if there’s any special configuration i need to do?

    Best Regards
