Default uggh - 8100 & T-Mobile with Ubuntu 8.0.4

I'm close, I think.
I'm pretty new to Linux, so I'm struggling with that a bit.
I have the Blackberry plan through T-Mobile; I've been connecting via bluetooth tether and Win XP for about a year, so I have that working.

I'm really looking for:
1. What's my problem? (Not life in general, just this issue )
2. Can someone explain or point me to understanding this? Yes I want to fix it, but I also want to understand it.
3. Shouldn't noauth tell my computer NOT to send user / password?

So that said, I'm following SDNick484's directions (#41), bluetooth tethering
  • setup the rfcomm.conf (had to change to channel 1 based on spdtool)
  • do the bberry script
  • do the bberry_chat script (w/ tmo OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","","",0,0')

I'm thinking I may have an issue with the PAP, but not sure???

I tried this second but it's shorter, so in the bberry script, if I try:
user 'guest' # or "", and verified plain text
password ''
It gets most of the way through the connection, then I see (not verbatim)
rcvd PAP something user=""
sent PAP something user="guest"
something about a timeout
If I drop guest out of user, so I have user '' or user "", then it seems my computer is sending the computer name as the user name. My results from that are at the bottom, because that's a long post.

So, I have seen mentions that although T-Mobile doesn't need the PAP, but my computer might require it? I tried a lot of things last night, but didn't get a chance to test that.

Thanks for bearing with me.
