Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) Beta has been released. I have already downloaded i386 architecture base ISO, download speed was very slow with my Reliance Netconnect Broadband+ (Say, around 20 K/s). But for am64 architecture base ISO, download speed is like anything, check this screen shot.

    @Hardik, Good to know that you got it working in 9.10.
    I was using 9.04 and yesterday upgraded to 9.10 Beta from update-manager. After that I am not able to get my Reliance Netconnect Broadband+ working. When I first inserted , it asked me to specify country, service provider all that just like we do in 9.04. But after that also it didnt connect.
    I went and changed username/pwd to my number which i had done in 9.04. but no success.
    any tips?
    also how can i change to 64bit version from current 32bit?
    your early reply will be really appreciated.

    @ Suyoug,

    Not it’s giving problem after latest update. It’s suffering with this bug [1]. I hope that should solve before released. For time being you can use gnome-ppp. It’s working out of the box.

    Reliance broadband+ is working fine and haven’t faced any problem with it though. Removing the deivce and plugging back until you see the USB devices should help you get connected. If ppp dialup is not working, quick solution is to use wvdial.

    @Hardik, Thanks for reply but I installed final release 9.10 today and have same issue.
    Not able to connect with Reliance Netconnect Broadband+, I have USB startup disk of 9.04 and connection works there as well as in Windows 7 which is dual boot on same laptop.
    Not really getting clue why it is happening, also I tried to check Ubuntu One for back up but may be its still not up for 9.10, kept giving me message that client has new version ….

    Yes, it’s having problem, But you simply configure the gnome-ppp for time being. It will work out of the box. People are already working on that bug.
