  1. Folks,

    I installed kubuntu on my laptop but can't for the life of me figure out how to get the dumbarse of a thing to connect to the net via dialup.

    You don't want to hear how boring life is sitting at work without net access.

    I also need to be able to get it to connect via my mobile, that would be even betterererererererer than dialup but one hurdle at a time.

    I know it's a long shot but if anyone is in the Windsor area that can drop in and fix it for me before I smash it i'd appreciate it.
  2. Fear not my pretty's.

    I have managed to get the blasted thing to connect via BT to my mobile phone.

    Now I can start an IRC session but I have no other connectivity.

    Any clues?
  3. Can you run:

    sudo iptables -L

    and post the results?
  4. yeah, but not as good as i used to.
  5. Keep at it, you'll get there
