Reliance Data Card in Ubuntu 8.04

Reliance data card ( Huawei ) works really well in Ubuntu, and getting it to work is very easy.

All that one must do is to plug in the USB modem and edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file:

Step 1: Edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file by typing in the following lines

[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

The username and password generally would be the Reliance number.

Step 2: Run (as root) the following command from terminal:

wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf

The output will be similar to the following:

--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56
--> Warning: section [Dialer /etc/wvdial.conf] does not exist in wvdial.conf.
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT#777
--> Waiting for carrier.

--> pppd: h?[06][08]p?[06][08]
--> primary DNS address 202.138.103.100
--> pppd: h?[06][08]p?[06][08]
--> secondary DNS address 202.138.96.2
--> pppd: h?[06][08]p?[06][08]
