I really need help for this issue . My empathy works well when I'm online using WIFI .. but it does't work when I'm online using wvdial. . in ubuntu 11.10, empathy works great.. any ideas to fix this??
It's because Empathy uses NetworkManager(NM) to determine whether you are connected to a network but NM itself cannot see the network connection established via wvdial. Issue the following command in a terminal to disable Empathy's dependency on NM for network connection.
