Today I figured all over again for the nth time, how to go online using a tata indicom cdma modem.
I was using the usb modem and following are the steps to do the same.
- Install wvdial
- edit /etc/wvdial.conf to contain the following
Init2 = AT+CRM=1
Modem Type = USB Modem
Phone = #777
ISDN = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Username = internet
Init1 = ATZ
Password = internet
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Baud = 115200
stupid mode = 1
3. wvdial as root
To install wvdial
in debian – apt-get install wvdial
in suse – zypper install wvdial
If your OS does not load the driver for your modem
To load the driver for the modem
and you will see something like this
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 1b7d:070a
then do a,
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1b7d product=0x070a
Note that the vendor and product values are from 1b7d:070a in the above line with 0x appended.
Hey Antano how you doing. Had a great time listing to you and Cliffton talk at the camp. I have uploaded the pictures in facebook.
Thanks, somehow I thought the kernel has been ‘optimised’ for the acer one in such way that it does not support the USB modem. Will probably try to install the onelinux some day and see how it works. Marko
da best. Keep it going! Thank you
The article is usefull for me. I’ll be coming back to your blog.
