    i would like to inform your users, there is a gui tool in ubuntu for connecting.
    goto synaptic and install gnome-ppp . you might have to put in the modem device manually.
    Also once you have found the vendor id and device id, you can simply add the following to /etc/modules
    usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfffd
    the above is for the usb Zte MG880 modem from Reliance. Your vendor id and device id may differ. The usb modem should automatically be detected in subsequent boots

    svsreddy,

    there is no software available for huwai data card that comes with reliance connection. Thats the reason for this howto. If you are looking for windows drivers/softwares, go to this link

    how to setup Reliance data card in Ubuntu/linux:
    ————————————————-
    FIRST connect ur usb Reliance huwai data card to ur system(Laptop/Desktop)

    Step1) make entry in /etc/wvdial.conf as below

    cat /etc/wvdial.conf

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    ISDN = 0
    New PPPD = yes
    Phone = #777
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Username = **********
    Password = **********
    Baud = 460800
    stupid mode = 1

    step2) now run “wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf” as root from command prompt

    Your output should be like below:
    –> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56
    –> Warning: section [Dialer /etc/wvdial.conf] does not exist in wvdial.conf.
    –> Cannot get information for serial port.

    ATDT#777
    CONNECT 230400
    –> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
    –> Starting pppd at Mon Jun 23 23:24:47 2008
    –> Pid of pppd: 6799

    –> pppd: �[08][06][08]�[10][06][08]
    –> remote IP address 220.224.135.112
    –> pppd: �[08][06][08]�[10][06][08]
    –> primary DNS address 202.138.103.100
    –> pppd: �[08][06][08]�[10][06][08]
    –> secondary DNS address 202.138.96.2
    –> pppd: �[08][06][08]�[10][06][08]

    step4) now you should able to connect to web

    I am trying to use Reliance ZTE CDMA 1X Modem MG880 with Ubuntu 8.04.
    I tried steps as given below. (I am new to Ubuntu) Please help me to make this work.

    santo@santo-notebook:~$ cat/proc/bus/usb/devices

    bash: cat/proc/bus/usb/devices: No such file or directory

    So I tried sudo gedit /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh

    and made changes like

    # Magic to make /proc/bus/usb work
    mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
    domount usbfs “” /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
    ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
    mount –rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

    santo@santo-notebook:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start

    sudo: unable to resolve host santo-notebook
    /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh: 67: -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644: not found
    ln:
    creating symbolic link `/dev/bus/usb/devices': File exists

    After this I restarted my HP notebook.

    santo@santo-notebook:~$ cat/proc/bus/usb/devices

    bash: cat/proc/bus/usb/devices: No such file or directory

    santo@santo-notebook:~$ sudo wvdialconf

    sudo: unable to resolve host santo-notebook

    Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf’.

    Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

    Modem Port Scan: S0 S1 S2 S3

    Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program?
    Did you configure it properly with setserial?

    Please read the FAQ at http://open.nit.ca/wiki/?WvDial

    If you still have problems, send mail to…..

    santo@santo-notebook:~$

    When I tried lsusb command it is listed as Bus xxx Device 013: ID 19d2:fffd
    I even checked in Administration > Network as given here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4929133#post4929133

    It looks like the USB modem is not even getting detected by Ubuntu 8.04. The same modem works in Vista.

    Please help me to resolve this.
    Thank you
    Santosh

    Santosh,

    have you tried the following command already, if not please do so.

    sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfffd

    Once done, run this to verify usbserial is been actually loaded

    sudo lsmod | grep usbserial

    Once you do that, positively drivers for your device would have been loaded. it would be great if you could run the following commands after you do above steps and paste the outpur here,

    dmesg | tail
    lsusb

    thanks,
    gourav

    Naveen,

    refer to the following doc
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

    you could type in the same command prefixed with sudo if it denies you permission otherwise.

    e.g.

    instead of vi wvdial.conf
    use
    sudo vi wvdial.conf

    Reshma,

    try running ‘lsusb’ instead of listing /proc/bus/usb/devices

    Hi Gourav !

    I try to install a Huawei modem EC325 on Ubuntu 7.1

    I continue by editing wvdial.conf; with sudo vi wvdial.conf

    But after to have edited it with the command “wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf”,

    Can you help me, please ?

    her is the problem,

    ————
    WvDial: Warning:
    Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied
    WvDial: –>
    PAP (Password Authentication Protocol) may be flaky.
    WvDial: Warning:
    Could not modify /etc/ppp/chap-secrets: Permission denied
    WvDial: –>
    ——————-

    /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets do not have permission to be written by anyone except root. you could verify it using ‘ls -l /etc/ppp ‘

    what you need to do is to run wvdial with root permissions, preferably using sudo,

    e.g.

    sudo wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf

    alternately, you could change permissions of these files using chmod and make it writable by other users, which is dangerous though. if you do this, you should revert back permissions once you dial wvdial for the first time.

    this can be done as,

    1. sudo su

    2. chmod a+rw /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
    chmod a+rw /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

    3. wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf

    4.
    chmod a-rw /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
    chmod u+rw /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

    Gourav, it’s allright ! Now, working without any problem.

    Can I put the speed up ?
    Bauds, are they link to the speed ?
    I wrote Bauds : 115200
    Can I write : 460800
    230400, is it my real speed ?

  19. Gourav Shah
    December 4, 2008 at 8:59 am

    Roman,

    115200 is alright. that is the connection speed used for negotiations, but you wont actually get that speed. the actual bandwidth that you’ll get with this connection will be much lower than 115Kbps. even if you change those parameters, you wont see much difference.

    if you want to check your bandwidth, use this tool http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest . It would give you an accurate information on download and upload speeds. You could ofcourse try bumping the connection speed to the above numbers, and let me know if that really boosts your speed :) , chances of which are rare in my opinion.

    Hi Gourav and Roman,
    I got a very similar authentication problem that I cannot find a way out. There is no problem connecting to the provider using the same account from XP. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated.
    The output follows:

    exit code = 19 indicates the issue with authentication.

    check /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets files and make sure they are properly configured with your username, password etc.

    I am on Ubuntu Meerkat edition. Simply plugged in my huwei stick, opened network connections. And used the tab ‘add new mobile broadband’. And Ubuntu took care of rest of details. (It gave me to choose my service provider from a list of indian mobile broadband operators). I just had to punch in my reliance HSD number.
