How do I connect to airtel GPRS internet via Nokia 6070 DKU-5 cable ?


Hi ppl,
I have a Nokia 6070 handset with a DKU-5 cable(serial port). I have GPRS connection on my phone. How do I set up internet, a dialup connection, using these things on my FC6 ? I can do it easily using CA-42 cable(USB port). I am not able to configure it on FC6. When I give the command <wvdial>, it says that the modem is not found. How to setup ? Please help.

Solve this

I tried doing this:
[something_root]# wvdialconf create
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.



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://open.nit.ca/wvdial/

If you still have problems, send mail to wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca.


My FC6 did not detect any serial port. I tried it out for all the ports from ttys0 to ttys(last) and the ttyACM series too. Nothing worked. Even <dmesg> was not able to do anything.
I have an MSI motherboard. When I tried it out on ASUS motherboard, it worked with the same DKU-5 cable. Could you tell me what the problem is ? Should I install SUSE ?

Regards,
Deepak B M
