"No network protocols running"

Occasionally I get the message below when trying to connect with a USB modem to my ISP

What is this telling me ?
Is my ISP not providing the service at the time or is this something not running on my machine which should be ?

Anyone know?

Is it a dialup usb modem or one of those 3g modems? What software are you using to access the modem? How is the software configured?

It seems the driver is not up to par, whatever you're using. Maybe it just needs to be tweeked. Or it could be the signal is not strong, from your end or from the ISP.

Give us more info, and, we may be able to help you more.

t is a 3G modem from Huawei Model E160E
Signal strength is 7.7 from OPtus in Australia
The software is the dialup script of Puppy Linux 5.31 and most times it connects almost immediately

What might help is what message will I get back if the ISP is not able to provide the service for some reason?

It seems like LCP has negotiated connection, but NCP protocol cannot configure network protocol like IP or IPX, so LCP protocol terminate connection. Check your PPP protocol configuration, make sure that user login and password are correct. Contact also with your ISP, maybe his router has invalid configuration.
