sakis3G setup & configuration


I am trying to use the sakis3G , i choose the option connect 3G, it asks me about username required by APN?? I have no usernames , and I don't know what APN is ?

can any one help me ?
I prefer using the sakis3G since it looks simpler than using USB_ModeSwitch which I didn't manage to understand it from the sites you posted .

if usb mode switch is installed you don't have to worry about it. it will do the job. if it'is not installed... you have to install it...

required info - user name and apn's - to start a connection can be given by your service provider. call them and ask.

APN stands for Access Point Name and defines data network, from which connection should be established through. If your operator is found within list of known operators, then Sakis3G script will provide you a list of APNs to select from. If this is not the case, you will have to provide following information (through user interface or by supplying configuration variables):

1. APN itself.
2. Username which APN might require.
3. Password which APN might require.

It is (usually) easy to acquire this information by performing a phone call to your operator's customer support (and trust me, they know what are you talking about).


on sakis3g site you have all the help you need. please read.

you should read sakis instructions...

* If operator provided you with a username, required for performing connection, this is the place to put it.
* Most operators are reasonable enough not to require a special username for widely used APNs.
* If operator does not require a username, you can place anything you like.


This value defines password which operator requires when using selected APN (Access Point Name).

* If operator provided you with a password, required for performing connection, this is the place to put it.
* Most operators are reasonable enough not to require a special password for widely used APNs.
* If operator does not require a password, you can place anything you like.


Note Note: Even if your operator does not need a password, you still have to provide a value in this variable. By convention, on these cases we usually use "pass" as password, indicating that no exact value is required.
