Reliance NetConnect+ on Ubuntu 12.04

After I shift to new area , [Future Homes at Kurunji Nagar] , I network connection becomes completely void.

  • BSNL Broadband and Airtel Broadband are completely not feasible as they clearly informed.
  • Vodafone IN shows coverage on my Mobile device , but it doesn’t actually.

I brother after a long quarrel comes down with a Reliance NetConnect+ . It works well with the stupid Windows7 in my VirtualBox but failed in Native Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS.

After did a long analysis on Google , it seems I need to install “gnome-ppp” but I have some other issues with “apt-get install -f “. So decided to ignore  “gnome-ppp” . And here is the final artifact on How to connect Reliance NetConnect+ on Ubuntu 12.04

  • Verify your MODEM detected in Ubuntu :

First command in ‘lsusb’ and make sure you find WCDMA device as in my case “Bus 002 Device 017: ID 19d2:fff1 ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM”

priya@localhost:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 017: ID 19d2:fff1 ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM 
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 5986:0190 Acer, Inc 
priya@localhost:~$

Modify the /etc/wvdial.conf

Then proceed to modify the contents of /etc/wvdial.conf as shown below. The Modem might be

Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0

or

Modem = /dev/ttyUSB1

depends on your case. Here’s my complete contents of /etc/wvdial.conf

priya@localhost:~$ cat /etc/wvdial.conf
[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = USB  Modem
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = 0
Phone = #777
Username = 93*0*9*2*4
Password = 93*0*9*2*4
Stupid Mode = 1                             
priya@localhost:~$
  • Connect with wvdial
priya@localhost:~$ sudo wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ

--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT#777
--> Waiting for carrier.
ATDT#777

--> pppd: ���[08]���[08]
--> secondary DNS address 220.226.100.***
--> pppd: ���[08]���[08]

If you’re able to see the primary DNS address 220.226.6.** and secondary DNS address 220.226.100.*** , success then say congrats to yourself.

If you face something weird , comment me. I try to look into it.

Enjoy!
