I am using UMTSmon to connect a hauwei mobile broadband USB stick to Internet
It connects and I get good speed and brows all over the place no problem BUT
If I log in as Root and start umtsmon from the gui menu it starts identifies the net work as 65501 which is correct and shows signal strength plus network number with the word UMTS in the window.
I click the connect button and it opens a small window with bar graph saying setting up ppp0 connection then puts he network number +signal strenght and the word UMTS back in the window.
A panel appears at bottom of screen advising that network is up etc etc
If I click on umtsmon as a normal user it asks for the Root password which is a nuisance that I can tolerate. Umtsmon starts and displays correct network 65501 plus signal strength plus word UMTS
WHEN I CLICK ON CONNECT BUTTON all that info is taken off the window and it says searching.
other info like Signal strength shows N/A However the system is actually connected and I have full access to the internet. I minimise UMTSmon window to the bottom bar where it happily stays with the words SEARCHING but otherwise no ill effect. it never stops searching no mater how long I leave it.
Can any one guess why logged in as root user and connecting as normal user, after giving root user password is different and how to I fix it ??
