    3G/UMTS problem creating connection with wvdial


    Hi,

    I want to connect my EEE PC to german provider eplus via the 3G/UMTS-USB-Stick Huawei E169.

    I have managed to get the pre-installed Xandros detecting the stick duely. However, as soon as I want to connect using the tool wvdial, wvdial gives back the following:

    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56
    --> 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: *99***1#
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    --> Timed out while dialing. Trying again.
    --> Sending: *99***1#
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    --> Timed out while dialing. Trying again.
    --> Sending: *99***1#
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    --> Timed out while dialing. Trying again.

    It seems the stick is initialized correctly but for some reason the carrier doesn't respond.

    This is my wvdial.conf:

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    #Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet.eplus.de"
    #Carrier Check = no
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    Baud = 460800
    New PPPD = yes
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = *99***1#
    Password = gprs
    Username = eplus
    Dial Command =
    #Auto DNS = 1

    Can somebody please help?

    Regards,

    Allister

    3G/UMTS problem creating connection with wvdial

    I have a similar problem with Vodaphone 3G fusion card.

    The wvdial.conf is:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud = 115200
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 =
    Init3 =
    Area Code =
    Phone = *99#
    Username = eplus
    Password = gprs
    Ask Password = 0
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Compuserve = 0
    Force Address =
    Idle Seconds = 300
    DialMessage1 =
    DialMessage2 =
    ISDN = 0
    Auto DNS = 1

    If anybody has some hints - I'd appreciate

    PIN-Code

    Hello Folks,

    don't know if you still have your problem but in case it helps anybody, I just had the same thing myself. In my case the "Invalid dial code" was because the modem actually was waiting for the PIN code of the phone card. I solved it by firing up the manager program on Windows and deactivating the PIN.

    Perhaps it's also possible to pass the PIN as an init string.

    Hope that helps
    Mike

    And you need the "Dial Command = ATDT" as in the second posting!

    You can find a working configuration here:

    Vodafone UMTS Karte unter Linux - www_guddl_de_umts-ubuntu-linux_html

    [- Stupid rule about posing URL -]

    Short Englisch version:

    /etc/wvdial.conf

    1 [Dialer Defaults]
    2 Init1 = ATZ
    3 Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    4 Modem Type = USB Modem
    5 Baud = 460800
    6 New PPPD = yes
    7 Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    8 ISDN = 0
    9
    10 [Dialer umts-pin]
    11 Init3 = AT+CPIN=xxxx <= replace with your PIN here!!!
    12
    13 [Dialer umts]
    14 Dial Command = ATD
    15 Carrier Check = no
    16 Phone = *99***1#
    17 Password = egal <== provider dependend
    18 Username = nochmalegal <== provider dependend
    19 Stupid Mode = 1
    20 Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","web.vodafone.de" <== replace with your provider APN
    21 Dial Attempts = 2

    To set the PIN start with

    wvdial umts-pin

    Connect with:

    wvdial umts
