01micko,
Thanks for your positive report on a device that was tricky to get going. Although my first thought was that I did not need them, since you succeeded, but I would like to see how it all worked, because of that trickiness. Thanks for offering.

kultex: Thanks for that gem of a chart, and the details for part of Europe. I have added a pointer to your posting from a new item 7 in the main page.
Richard

hello Richard

here is what I did (much the same as previous)

-Modem was detected at boot and recognised as /dev/ttyUSB0
-Carrier check, Dialtone check, Busy check All unchecked
-Stupid mode, Auto Reconnect Both checked
-left Initialisation strings and Max speed alone
-I have no SIM PIN, so left it blank
-inserted ISP phone number *99#
-my username
-left password but I think any old thing should be there
-Inserted Wireless APN "VirginBroadband" (without quotes)
-added "-chap" option to /etc/ppp/options

Hello again Richard

Working great on my main box too in 4.3 Cool . Just as well too because I've blown my download limit for the month... still 10 days to go!

Two minor niggles.

1. I always check 'stupid mode' but pupdial does not remember my choice. Is that possible to implement?

2. I definitely need the '-chap' option in /etc/ppp/options (just inadvertantly tried without it Laughing ) or else the modem will not negotiate a connection. I recall you said you might try to squeeze that checkbox in the pupdial gui.

Are there other ISPees needing that option?

Cheers

Mick

kultex,
And alix_board,
I have now fixed pupdial so you can edit the wvdial.conf Init6-9 lines and have them be retained by pupdial. The patch is in the 4.3beta2 Bugs thread here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=340321#340321
I am also updating 3G_pupdial...-12 with it, for new downloaders.
Richard


Allright! Now i am back from holiday and i will try the new one a soon as possible!

01micko,
Thanks for reporting that the Stupid Mode setting is not retained. I will try to have it fixed for 4.3.1. Regarding "-chap", I have not seen any report of it being needed elsewhere. But I would like to request that Barry add a line: "#-chap" to the /etc/ppp/options file, to make it simpler for users (or pupdial) to edit.

I am not ruling out building such an option into pupdial, but I want to hear of more such options being required, so I can implement a comprehensive "fine-tuning" technique.

UPDATE 10/4/09: I withdraw my request to Barry, above in this posting, to edit the /etc/ppp/options file. I have implemented the "fine tuning" technique, so the edit is not desired. The implementation accomplishes the solution in a different way. See the posting in the 4.3 Bugs thread.
Richard

Could you also ask that the "115200" line in /etc/ppp/options be commented out, please.

This would remove any possibility of it interfering with the speed set in wvdial.conf by the current pupdial (as per puppy 4.3 final.)

PostPosted: Thu 24 Sep 2009, 12:45    Post subject: pupdial (4.3) + 3G mobile phone = easy connection  

rerwin,

Thanks for the new pupdial with the wireless extension. With it, connecting to Telstra's NextG network using my SAMSUNG 411 mobile phone as a USB modem, just works.

The probe function found my phone at /dev/ttyACM0.
Then enter the appropriate phone number and APN and click "Stupid mode" on, and "Auto reconnect" off.
Then click on "Connect to Internet", and it works, quite quickly.

Now that I have installed your latest fixed version into puppy 4.3, it works the next time as well, even after a reboot.

hi rerwin,

you helped earlier, and I had meant to post feedback, but obviously didn't Embarassed

ditto on both for me. without stupid mode, the modem eventually gets going (~5secs), but the setting isn't retained, and (also using Virgin) without -chap there is no connection.

Hi mcalex,

rerwin posted an updated pupdial on page 10 of the "4.3 final bugs and suggestions" thread which solves the checkbox issue.

Cheers

It just occured to me to test your new "-chap" solution for VirginBroadband, so I deleted the "-chap" option in /etc/ppp/options and it connected without a hitch. Smile (more good news for us mcalex Wink )

Cheers

hi rerwin, 01micko

new pet installed. wvdial remembers settings and /etc/ppp/options is now free of -chap settings. good stuff.

PS: remembering earlier problems with ppl being connected, but unable to access the web with seamonkey until changing resolv.conf or other dns issues, i had similar when i did a clean reinstall of puppy to 4.3. modem light was solid, but was getting 403s in SM until I changed "Configure proxies to access the internet' (Edit/Preferences/Advanced/Proxies) from 'Direct connection to the internet' to 'Automatically discover the proxy configuration'. After I shut down SM and wvdial and reconnected, all good. Apologies if the reaction to all that is 'well duh' Smile

eleanori,

What type of "wired modem" do you have, that it connects with Ethernet?

Can anyone help me regarding making HUAWEI Mobile Connect - 3G Modem (3 mobile broadband) work on hard drive install of Puppy Linux 3.01.
It is not hard to set up this thing using a dial up account...that is dead easy in Windoze.
I realize that I need to make puppy recognize the device as a modem, but everything I have seen so far seems to be for puppy 4.2. I do not wish to use puppy 4.2 (no offence meant, but I just don't like puppy 4.2).
I have spent a very long time working on puppy 3, as I have no programming experience or anything like that. I am just a stubborn old man who hates windows and am willing to spend time making things work in Linux.
Too many things do not work for me in puppy 4.2, & I wish to persevere with puppy 3.
Here is some info:
Manufacturer=HUAWEI Technology
Product=HUAWEI Mobile
VendorID=12d1 ProductID=1001 KERNEL-MODULE=usb-storage
If anyone replies to this, and needs more info, I will provide it.

Subject description: UK Vodaphone PAYG sucess!
 

OK, this has just taken me the best part of the day but in the end was ridiculously easy, so I'm posting it here in case anybody else wants to do what I've done.

Running Puppy 4.30, frugal install.

I'm using a Vodafone K3565 (Huawei E160) PAYG 3G dongle

What took me absolutely ages to work out was what to enter into the PupDial. So here it is:
Phone number *99#
User Name wap
password wap
Wireless APN pp.internet

Ticked Stupid Mode and was good to go.
If anybody's interested, I found the relevant info by plugging the dongle into my Ubuntu desktop - a couple of clicks later and I was online - it either know or auto-detected "magically" that APN wa pp.internet as I haven't seen that anywhere else.

So, hopefully this will save somebody else a lot of time.
Puppy rocks, and I'm very pleased - just wish it hadn't taken quite this long to find out!

Regards,
Jon

darwinev0lved,
Thanks for your straightforward how-to for you modem and provider. I am taken by your mention that ubuntu figures out the APN. I have a hunch how it might do that, and I think we can do that at least manually. There is a command to display the APN stored in the phone/modem's memory. I have provided the command in wvdial.conf as a comment that a user can edit to remove the "#":
Code:
#Init8 = AT+CGDCONT?
Try doing that before running pupdial (because it overwrites during its operation), then try to connect. The APN should appear in the pupdial log of the connection. I am open to ideas on using that info to make pupdial smarter.

Assuming the APN is in the modem, you might try changing the phone number to *99***1# (I think that's the right number of asterisks). That says to use the first number in the internal list of APNs. If yours is second in the list, use "2" instead of "1".

Idea: How about pupdial activating the Init8 line for a connection if no APN is entered? Your experimentation with Init8 would move that idea along. Thanks.
Richard
