Step 1. Write the following in your /etc/wvdial.conf file, save and close:
Baud = 460800
Init 1 = AT+CGMM
Init 2 = AT+CMEE=1
Init 3 = ATE0
Init 4 = AT^HS=0,0
Init 5 = AT+CFUN?
Init 6 = AT+CLCK="SC",2
Init 7 = AT+CPIN?
Init 8 = AT+CLCK="SC",2
Modem Type = USB MODEM
Username = idea
Password = idea
APN = internet
Step 2. Add the following lines to your /etc/network/interfaces file:
iface ppp0 inet ppp
It would look something like this (only the encircled part is important):
Step 3. Restart the network services by the following command:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
Step 4. Go to System-> Administration -> Network. You'd see something like this:
Uncheck the 'Wired' connection (disable it). Now go to the properties of Point to point connection do the following settings in the respective tabs:
- Check on 'Enable this connection'
- Connection type: PPPoE
- Username: idea
- password: idea
- Ethernet interface: eth0
- Check 'Set modem as default'
- Check 'Use the internet service provider nameservers'
- Check 'Retry if connection breaks'
Step 5. Again restart the network connection (step 3).
Step 6. Plug in your Idea Netsetter in one of the USB ports and run the following command in your terminal:
$ sudo wvdial
That's it .. if everything's fine wvdial would show your new Local and Remote IP address for the idea connection.
