Hi Rob,

These settings took quite a long time to work out, i've actually edited
the entry name to make it ubuntu-uk mailing list friendly - as I found
it somewhat frustrating.

I'm actually using a three mobile phone rather than a dedicated dongle,
but i would expect the settings to be the same.

[Dialer three]
Init1 = ATZ
Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","three.co.uk"
Modem Type = USB Modem
ISDN = 0
New PPPD = yes
Phone = *99#
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = guest
Password = guest
Baud = 460800


Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
