    My 3Gdongle connects OK, via the pppdScript which I morphed from
    dial-up days: .......
    pppd lcp-echo-interval 300 lcp-echo-failure 44 connect '
    chat -v "" ATZ OK\
    AT+CGDCONT=1 OK \
    ATM2DT*99# CONNECT "" TIMEOUT 99 ' \
    /dev/ttyACM0 460800 debug crtscts defaultroute usepeerdns
    ---
    But for a FixedWirelessTerminal and a different ISP, I can ping, but
    get <host not found>, using ....
    pppd lcp-echo-interval 300 lcp-echo-failure 44 connect '
    chat -v "" ATZ OK ATX OK ATM2DT#777 CONNECT "" TIMEOUT 99 ' \
    /dev/ttyUSB0 38400 debug crtscts defaultroute nopersist\
    : name "***" password "***"
    ---
    /etc/resolv.conf is:
    # Generated by dhcpcd for interface eth0
    nameserver 196.207.32.83
    ---
    but I'm not sure that that's used or even valid.
    And I need the 2 systems to have their own <pppd script>.

    What are some <openDNS> IP's,
    and how do I 'script' the pppd to use my chosen DNS?

    ==TIA.

    Can't help with the pppd connections, but the openDNS servers are:

    208.67.220.220
    208.67.222.222

    Thanks !! That works when I update /etc/resolv.conf with your
    supplied IPs.

    Apparently the working ISP version was not using my perhaps
    [by now] invalid IPs.

    Wheezy's menu/form for setting up pppd is not good for
    unusual configurations, and understanding the details of
    pppd is too much.
