I am new to android but I was to fix PPP problems. I read how you can make changes in the build.prop file to fix it.
How exactly do I get to it? I tried searching my SD card for that file and couldnt find it. If someone could explain to me where it is located and how to get to it and how to make changes in the file, do let me know thanks.!!

prbly long winded, but simple method - install ASTRO file manager, browse to /system, long press on build.prop - Edit - Copy. Press on the home icon then Edit icon - Paste. Connect sd card, edit it, and paste it over from where you copied build.prop

Either make a directory like this:

e.g. E:/Android/root/system

and paste the modified build.prop in there.
