Bug Description

Currently if QA doesn't notice there is WWAN module on testing platform, the following tests just got failed automatically if no SIM card inserted. These are all auto tests, so QA could only find the failure and re-run them after all testing competed.

- mobilebroadband/*_connection
- ethernet/detect

Could you please add a test case to remind tester to insert SIM card and establish a mobile broadband connection before running related auto tests?

Also affecting the provider, as we would need to modify the whitelists

Elsa,

One question about this one:

I agree about introducing the SIM card as a hint, but the configuration of the connection (through env variables) should be done prior to the testing.

Why do you think you need to establish the WWAN connection before running the tests?

@Ara,

Now the steps for running mobile broadband tests in Sutton project are as following:
1. Insert SIM card into the micro-SIM-card tray in the computer
2. Set up a mobile broadband connection from Network Manager
3. Run mobile broadband tests from checkbox/plainbox

Without above 1&2 steps, results of related tests in step 3 just got failed. So from QA’s point of view, there should be a test case to remind QA do 1&2 steps. But if there’re env variables to set which could make step 2 automatically, that would be great.

Setting the following environ: GSM_CONN_NAME GSM_APN GSM_USERNAME GSM_PASSWORD should create the mobile broadband connection automatically.
