[opensuse] SuSE 11.1 Cell Phone Tethering

Hello Listmates,

I have run into a problem with tethering my cellphone as a external modem
since my upgrade.
Under knetwork manager in either KDE 3.5 or KDE 4.1 I don't have the selection
to start-up and/or configure a dialup connection. It appears this option has
been removed. How do I add it back in?

The tethering is my fall back connection when out in the field away from
normal wifi/ethernet connections under emergent situations. I'm not worried
about speed issues, just the availability for usage.

What I do get is on a USB connection it registers as /dev/ttyACM0 in knetwork
manager. But when I go to configure and connect, I don't get the handshaking.
I have verified my baud rates so that shouldn't be an issue.

I can use minicom and get the port to reply so I know the hardware and cabling
are fine making this a software and/or configuration issue.

I have tried configuring it as a modem under yast. It initially shows up as
the cellphone type. But when trying to edit the configuration, it shows it as
a separate modem (modem0) which still doesn't show under knetwork manager.

This is the first time since SuSE 9.0 that I have run into this issue and it's
stumping me.


Thank you,
