    How can one set up Dial-Up connection in OpenSUSE 10.3


    Hallo!I have been trying to set up a dial-up connection using HUAWEI FWT Wireless Modem telephone in my OpenSUSE 10.3.The dial-up connection works perfectly in Windows but Linux cannot
    even detect the modem in the sysinfo:/ page.

    I have tried to configure the modem from Yast->Network Devices->Modem.In the Modem Parameters Dialog,I configured as below

    Modem Device as /dev/modem/.I have also tried the /dev/ttyS0 option

    Dial Prefix :None.I have also tried the #777 call number

    Dial Mode as Tone Dialling.

    In the Select Internet Service provider Dialog,I have entered the Custom provider as Telkomwireless.

    In the Provider Parameter's Dialog,I have set the Provider Name as Telkomwireless,Phone Number as #777 Username as telkomwireless and password as telkom.

    I am also not sure as to whether to use KnetworkManager or Kinternet.I have tried both options.

    How can I solve my problem?In Windows the following settings work

    ISP Provider:Telkomwireless
    Phone Number:#777
    Username:telkomwireless
    Password:telkom

    Please respond to my inquiry as soon as possible and I will be infinitely grateful.Thanks in advance.

    Go to terminal and as root
    Enter the following

    wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

    Now open the /etc/wvdial.conf file and change the phone number, username and password as per your provider and append
    stupid mode =1 at the end.

    Remove semicolons, if any, in the username and password line
