Bug Description

Precondition:
A 3G modem that provides 3G Broadband Internet Access service through Vodafone Greece is connected for first time to a computer running Ubuntu 8.10.

What happens:
After the user selects Greece as Country and Vodafone as provider, the Mobile Broadband connection is automatically configured and APN is set to "internet.vodafone.gr".

Current Postcondition:
The user is unable to enable the connection unless he goes to connections editor, edit the mobile broadband connection and change the APN to "internet".

Desired Postcondition:
The user is able to enable the mobile broadband connection with no need to further edit it.

Proposed resolution:
After the user selects Greece as Country and Vodafone as provider, the Mobile Broadband connection should be automatically configured and APN should be set to "internet".

Detailed description:
When connecting a USB 3G modem for first time in ubuntu 8.10 an utility is automatically started in order to help the user to set up a Mobile broadband connection. When the user selects Greece as country and Vodafone as the mobile broadband provider, the utility sets APN to "internet.vodafone.gr" that is wrong and results to connection failure if left as is. The right APN is plain "internet". When the user tries to enable the connection just after the setup process has finished, he takes a "connection failed" error message. The user has to go to edit connections, edit the mobile broadband connection and change the APN to "internet". After that the connection is enabled successfully. The file /usr/share/mobile-broadband-provider-info/serviceproviders.xml holds the default settings for mobile broadband providers per country. The section:

       <provider>
                <name>Vodafone</name>
                <gsm>
                        <apn>internet.vodafone.gr</apn>
                </gsm>
        </provider>

should be replaced with:

       <provider>
                <name>Vodafone</name>
                <gsm>
                        <apn>internet</apn>
                </gsm>
        </provider>
