    Hello!
    Created an internet connection using wvdialconf. Launched it with the wvdial command.
    But Firefox does not download sites from the web.
    AntiX 17 did not have this problem.
    Tell me what to do with it.

    Maybe try this:

    connman-not-connecting

    Can you connect to the net using for example apt-get update or ping google.com?

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Nothing.

    Maybe you need to remove connman? Maybe it conflicts with wvdial?

    # apt remove connman
    # killall connman-vpnd
    # wvdialconf
    $ wvdial

    Does not work.

    There is also oFono that works with connman, but I don’t yet know how to install it to work correctly.

    I thought the computer connects to the web on boot-up, or at least mine does.

    Try starting wvdial and then reboot to see if it connects then.

    Of course, until you get a working internet connection going for long enough to do an update and install any missing programs, anything could be wrong, couldn’t it?

    Thank you for your advice.
    But it did not help.

    Forgive me if I make any stupid suggestions. I haven’t got much sleep this weekend. Anyway, I copied this from the Debian Wiki. It might help.

    WvDial is a program that makes it easy to connect your Linux workstation to the Internet. It is a PPP dialer with built-in intelligence: it will automatically detect your modem, and it can log into almost any Internet provider’s server without any special configuration.

    Frontends

    gnome-ppp

    Installation

    Installing wvdial with a package manager will use debconf and wvdialconf(1) to establish the /etc/wvdial.conf file, with the necessary connection values (i.e. phone number, username, password) supplied by you.

    To repeat the configuration process after installation, run dpkg-reconfigure wvdial.

    Usage

    Once configured, WvDial can be started/stopped using the pon.wvdial and poff.wvdial scripts or via the GNOME frontend. A wvdial method is also available in interfaces(5) for use with ifupdown.

    And this is the Arch Forum which is always worth a look. Lots of details usually.

    Yes, I know about wvdial.
    AntiX has gnome-ppp and umts-panel for working with this utility. Everything is working fine, but not in AntiX 19 🙁

    I agree, archwiki is a useful resource.

    Try removing the /etc/resolv.conf sym link to /run/connman/resolv.conf. Instead make sure it links to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

    and set up wvdial again
