I am unable to connect to internet using my modem. I followed instructions to seek help at http://live.gnome.org/NetworkManager/Debugging and posted on http://mail.gnome.org/archives/networkmanager-list/2011-October/msg00194.html.

There was an initial response from the mailing list, but now its silent. What should I do in this situation? Do I go ahead and just file a bug at bugzilla.gnome.org?

Though I am competent enough to help somebody fixing bugs by providing required more information, I am not competent enough to try and help fixing the bug myself.
