    for internet i am using GPRS connection through data cable on N70 in Xubuntu 6.10
    everything is working fine but there is not any network monitor through which i can see data transfer status or i am connected or not. i have to see phone indicaions in that case. default network monitor doesnt seem working. there is one field for Network device for which i dont know what to fill :-(

    if i leave it blank, nothing happens. if i fill anything the error is
    Code:
    Xfce4-Netload-Plugin: Error in initalizing:
    Interface was not found.
    earlier in ubuntu i was using bluetooth dialup, there was modem monitor which shows whether you are connected or not, though it was not showing data transfer.
