checked in /tmp and nothing , i figure that it may be there when run from command rather than from gui
No, whether you run it from the command line or GUI probably doesn't matter. It gets erased when the system is preparing to write a new log.
If you want to see what a log looks like, check it while you are online...there had better be one there then!
Have the same problem with my sl5500 and gonna see if telemetric_au's trick of adding "noauth" into /etc/ppp/options will make a difference. I wonder where else he put it?
I was blaming Opera for my problems, but the same problem occurs when I run NeIC. My temporary fix has been to just kill the current pppd process to get the GUI to act properly.
