Description Panic 2001-08-02 18:29:34 UTC
Description of Problem:

Internet-Druid's Modem configuration sequence uses the "Provider Name" as
the connection name.  This is really confusing.  Further, it seems to want
you to choose a provider from the list, which only has German ISPs (bug#
50669).  This is also inconsistent with the neat Add->Modem tool, which
allows to choose the "Device Name" (bug #50672) which is really the
connection name (apparently).  If internet-druid is used to attempt to
create two entries with the same provider name, the first entry is overwritten.

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run through internet-druid
2. Try to figure out where the connection name is, or what exactly a
"Provider Name" does.
3. Try to use internet-druid to create two entries with the same Provider Name.

Actual Results:

Confusion about what the "Provider Name" box does and what it is for (you
can't leave it blank).  Confusion about a way to name the configuration.

Expected Results:

A "Connection Name" box, and a "Providers who require special
configuration" descriptor of some type on the "Provider Name" listing. 
Something that is straightforward.  Also, no configuration in neat should
be overwritten by internet-druid.
