i've not long got an o2 dongle, and it's fine but i have a question to ask if anybody can help. while on site today i got very board and so got my lappy out and did a bit of surfing. now it was bit on the slow side as it was only in a gprs area. now that gave me a thought, we have sites/equipment throughout the country and quite a few have gprs modems in that we can dial into to see what is going on....blah blah blah
now i created the network connection and to my surprise it connected (wasn't sure if it would). when i got home i thought i'd give it another go. but it won't attempt it as the modem without the connection manager defaults to the strongest signal which happens to be hsdpa.
now my question is this, is there a way to make the dongle (not specifically o2 but any) run gprs without running the connection manager? and if there is.......how?
mods: feel free to move as it's a bit of a multi-category question
