huawei k3565 connection problem

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello everyone i bought a modem (huawei K3565) and I cant get it to work. the problem seems weird and on betavine.net I found a couple of people who are having the same problem but no one really came up with a solution to it. I will try to describe the problem step by step. I installed both umtsmon and vodafone mobile connect card driver for linux from betavine. after several unsuccessful tries I managed to find the proper apn on betavine which is PPBUNDLE.INTERNET now I can get both umtsmon and vodafone to connect (the modems blue light keeps lighting which suggests it is connected). however as soon as i open firefox it says it is offline and whatever i do (file-work offline) has no effect on that. interestingly enough when I try to start skype it works and I can call! yesterday late at night it seemed like i got the solution. in knetwork manager I tried to connect with all the necessary details and it did. then I could use everything. but the next day in the morning I try it knet doesnt even start connecting with the same details like yesterday. there is no response whatsoever. I am not a complete linux noob I have been using it for almost a year now but I am definitely not an expert and this problem seems unsolvable to me. I assume its something with ppp (whatever that is, ok maybe i am a noob btw I run opensuse 11.1 do you reckon upgrading to 11.2 might help? I really need to come up with the solution quickly because I am working on a project which requires constant internet connection. If i cant get it done in a couple of days I will have to go back to windows. so please any help is very much appreciated thank you so much (Distributions)
