...and avoid the additional clicks and "reading configuration file" banners associated with pupdial. Tested on Puppy 4.1.2, 4.3.1 and Wary 5.3.9

1) Set up your initial dial-up connection for your mobile modem, etc. using pupdial. Make sure the connection works.
2) For Puppy 4.1 and probably 4.2 - simply run the wvdialshell-script found in usr/bin. A window will open and wvdial will connect automatically without any further input. To disconnect, just close the window.
For Puppy 4.3.1 and later - the contents of the wvdial configuration file found in /etc will have to be changed first because the lay-out changed from earlier versions. Add the details of ISP1 ie. Number, name, password to the default section and run wvdialshell as above.

I made a tray button linked to wvdialshell for easy access. You can of course also make a symlink to wvdialshell in your start folder in which case you will automatically connect at startup.
