I want to install BSNL EVDO Rev A USB Data Card Model No.:T-U500 on my laptop which is double booted with both ubuntu and windows 7. BSNL evdo works well on windows 7 and I tried to install it on ubuntu.
I don't have internet connection in Ubuntu.
I tried to install using terminal
at@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~$ sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x15eb product=0x7153 at@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~$ sudo wvdialconf
Scanning your serial ports for a modem. Modem Port Scan<*1>: S0 S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7 ... ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up. Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program? Did you configure it properly with setserial? Please read the FAQ at http://alumnit.ca/wiki/?WvDial
TWO: Then I tried to follow http://linuxers.org/howto/how-configure-bsnl-evdo-linux
And after I typed wvdial I am getting error
/etc/wvdial.conf I edited to:
[Dialer Defaults] Modem=/dev/tty0 Baud=115200 Dial Command = ATDT Baud=115200 Dial Command = ATDT init1=ATZ init2=AT+CRM=1 Flow Control= Hardware (CRTSCTS) Username = 9180326472 Password = 9180326472 Phone = #777 Stupid Mode = 1
resolv.conf I edited to
hash Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) hash DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52
(By hash I mean #)
What I typed in terminal:
root@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~# vim /etc/wvdial.conf root@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~# vim /etc/resolv.conf root@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~# wvdial --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61 --> Cannot get information for serial port. --> Initializing modem. --> Sending: ATZ --> Sending: ATQ0 --> Re-Sending: ATZ --> Modem not responding. root@at-Presario-V3700-Notebook-PC:~#
After doing all this I logged into Windows, uninstalled it, unplugged the modem, plugged it again, clicked "open folder to view files", clicked Linux, Copied "BSNL EVDO Installer" to the desktop. Then I logged onto Ubuntu moved the file into its desktop and installed it. After installation I clicked "EVDO Data Card" but nothing happened. What should I do? Is the problem caused by something I did above?
