I’ve been playing around with some cobbled together pppd � chat scripts to get my Novatel Wireless U630 working under Ubuntu, with a Vodafone UK Data SIM (I think most of the problmes come from VF UK’s DNS Servers being broken in some odd way)

  I just kick this off with a &#8220;pppd debug vodafone-U630&#8221; in a root terminal window.

  PPS The Windows based Novatel tool is able to tell me all sorts of into about signal strength etc, as is the 3rd party tool MWConn, I wonder are there any specs around that would let us get similar info in a non-Windows environment?
