"Stupid Mode" in wvdial
As shown in my previous post,
I could use my Blackberry's 3G connection to connect to the Internet over bluetooth.
However, there was a problem.
Everytime I used
wvdial to connect to the internet, wvdial would pause for a long while, then print:
Don't know what to do! Starting pppd and hoping for the best.
before starting pppd and connecting to the Internet.
This was troublesome because I suspend the EeePC often, and everytime I wake it up from sleep I would have to wait a long while before internet access would be available.
Thankfully, one additional line in
wvdial.conf fixed this:
Stupid Mode = 1
And the problem was solved since wvdial would start
pppd immediately once it connected to the ISP.
Problem solved -- by making wvdial stupid.
