I have tried all the very possible ways in Ubuntu 11.04 to connect to the internet with Tata Photon Plus; but I am unable. I don’t know why so. It’s very complicated. Please help me.
1) Install “wvdial” if you do not have it already. To install wvdial, use the command:
sudo apt-get install wvdial
2) Next, plug in your Tata Indicom USB Modem.
Now, create a dialer for your modem with the command:sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf3)Edit the wvdial.conf file by issuingsudo vi /etc/wvdial.conf4)Your wvdial.conf file opens on issuing the above command. It should look like this :[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = AT+CRM=1
Stupid Mode = 1
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Phone = 0
ISDN = 0
New PPPD =
Username = internet
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 96005)Now you have to edit the file. Put “internet” in place of and . Do not change any other auto-generated entry. Place the appropriate phone number in place of 0. It is #777 for Tata Indocom.That should complete setting up your dialer. Now, to dial a connection, simply executesudo wvdialIn case it still does not work, add the lines:Init3 = AT+CRM=1andStupid Mode = 1http://techie-buzz.com/how-to/how-to-connect-tata-photon-whizplug2surf-with-ubuntu-linux.html
