PPP-Widget - Working with 4.4 Kitkat
Hopefully this will help others.
My N10 stock 4.4, I put PPP Widget on and it appeared to not work, initially it was "no driver found", on searching the forums it was basically "tough". To make it works involves:
- The stock kernel from Google in 4.4 does not support PPP. Pick another kernel which does support PPP. Examples are tce-manta-krt16s_3_boot.zip. Many do.
- Disable Wifi before you connect, or have a Wifi static setting with an Internet-visible DNS server IP (e.g. 126.96.36.199). This is because PPP Widget on stock 4.4 will use the DNS settings from your Wifi, not over-write them when using the dongle, which in most cases won't work as they are the Wifi router itself's own LAN IP which is not accessible when on the 3G/4G dongle. If you don't want to disable Wifi then go to your router and make it offer up an Internet-visible DNS IP address.
- It will "connect" but not show any signs it is actually working, but it is.
I'm very pleased I got my Nexus 10 on both Kitkat 4.4 and get online with 4G dongle
