Comment 1 Ngo Than 2002-01-07 08:56:09 EST
could you attach your /etc/wvdial.conf?
Comment 2 Richard Keech 2002-02-20 20:01:02 EST
system currently has an empty wvdial.conf.  I can't be sure if this was the
case when the problem originally occured.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-04-03 05:43:49 EST
should be fixed with 0.9.21
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-11 20:43:20 EDT
Can you try the version at http://people.redhat.com/teg/neat/ ? (Currently 0.9.24-1)
