@christino plz do u have a workaround for ppp link error, since the reinstallation of win i've been encountering that problem anytime i try to establish celtel connection on my pc so am stuck to opera mini
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 1:30am On Dec 12, 2006
i don't know nada about this PPP stuff o, but i just use the network setup wizard to set my connection up, never encountered it.

okay, try this:

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue: 1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.

NOTE: For Windows Server 2003, click Start, point to Control Panel, and then point to Network Connections.
2. Right-click the appropriate dial-up networking connection, and then click Properties.
3. Click the Networking tab, and then click Settings.
4. Click to clear the Negotiate multi-link for single link connections check box (if it is selected).
5. Click OK, and then click OK.
6. Double-click the connection, and then click Dial. • If this procedure resolves the issue and you can establish a dial-up connection, you do not have to follow the remaining steps in this article.
• If this does not resolve the issue and you cannot establish a dial-up connection, go to step 7 to continue to troubleshoot this issue.

7. Right-click the connection, and then click Properties.
8. Click the Security tab.
9. Under Security options, click Allow unsecured password in the Validate my identity as follows box, and then click OK.

@christino i did that but still the same error. could it be a location problem?
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 10:44am On Dec 12, 2006
Ha, can't really say o. I doubt if it is, did you change location? but if your phone is connected wot's stopping your PC?

try deleting that one and using the network setup wizard for dial up connectivity. you should be ok in no time.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 5:45pm On Dec 13, 2006

Re: Ubuntu Linux by esquire(m): 3:25pm On Dec 22, 2006
i did not check the forum until this morning but i did the upgrade i wanted to do i did it on wednesday. What i did with the repository was i changed all dapper to edgy. But sadly the cafe have no UPS and i made a mistake of not going 2 d place with mine Nepa interrupt power after the download reaches 78% my guestion is this is there anyway 2 rescue a broken download and make it continue without having 2 restart the stuff but i must confess the cafe is very fast. Looking forward 2 hearing from u guys. Cheerio
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 6:04pm On Dec 22, 2006
