Using Nokia N73 as a modem for internet
 
I'm currently using ubuntu 7.04 dual boot with a XP on my Dell Inspiron 640m. Before this i have a dsl connection at home so this wasn't really a problem. But recently i was sent outstationed. so i need to start using my N73 as my modem.
Using it with my XP with PC suite is totally no problem. But using Ubuntu with no PCsuite is a pain. But i found out something like wvdialconf and wvdial and it seems that there is a hope. but it kept showing things like this:-

salvador@sal02:~$ sudo wvdialconf
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Found an USB modem on /dev/ttyACM0.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
salvador@sal02:~$ sudo wvdial
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


I just kept showing this error msg "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" don't know what's really about. can anyone help me on this or teach me how to crack down this error? For your info, i tried switching all the usb ports to see whether it is the cause, still same problem.

Does anyone has any advise on this?

Ok I am new here but i think i might help at least a bit.

First of all i am using nokia n73 as a modem under windows XP to connect to irish network three.ie (first via nokia pc suite and then when it added a connection to my network connectins deleted regedit entry for starting up with nokia pc suite and since then using reconnect software to start connecton right after windows boots up). Not using Ubuntu but PC LOS 2007 and I found my solution as temporary but... maybe togeother we can try to get this somewhere as 2 heads are better then 1.

What I did was instead of wvdialconf i have used kppp. It goes like that:

Since You already know that your modem is named ttyACM0 (same thing with mine) all you have to do is run a command kppp under kde (not sure will it originally would be builded in ubuntu as it uses gnome as default).

and settings for me were

Username = 3
Password = 3

But was trying without this and should work as well.

you can change the modem init strings below under
modems > edit > modem > modem commands

Init string 1 = ATZ
Init string 2 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP"

Phone number = *99# (this gives the phone a sign to dial the default connection. You can add a different phone numbers as well for example *99***2# or *99***3# for connections 2 and 3 in the queue)

Auth = pap/chap

And it works but temporarily as I wrote before. Why? It dials the connecton and connects as many times as I want to under 1 condition... NO REBOOTS... After that it hangs, till i will not disconnect usb plug for nokia.

I have heared and read about using nokia under linux as bluetooth modem. I was doing it under winxp but it gives me half the speed. Once succeded with linux. Keeps loosing phone pairing. Got sick of it.

Let me know how this worked out for you. Maybe you are far ahead by now and want to publish your success and let us know how to?

Good Luck

sorry it took so long...

actually i reinstalled my ubuntu and did the same configuration. and it worked!

i also don't know wat happened. it just worked when i reinstalled my ubuntu. now i am using Linux mint, and it also worked out.

Just like to share my steps.

1) plug in your nokia phone(mine is N73)

2) type "sudo wvdialconf"
this will let it configure the basic settings for you

3) edit the configuration file at /etc/wvdial.conf by typing "sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf"

4) make sure u DON change ANYTHING except adding the following:-

Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1, "IP","type ur service provider name in here"<--normally it can be found at ur phone-> setting-> connection-> access points. this is n73.

phone = *99# <--this shud be like this.

remember to save the file

5)type "sudo wvdial"
6)connection done.

OK. So this could be the end of this section. But we might as well keep it open as someone might have a questions in this matter with different distro or model of Nokia. I might try ubuntu or kubuntu myself + will try to write how to do it with bluetooth later on as this seems to be a good idea for a person lacking usb cable / socket but with working bluetooth on board of their laptop. What is the kernel version that goes with 7.04?

This might be a interesting disscussion :).

All the best

hi
i have a n73,vodafone india and i am using opensuse10.3...nd i did all that salvadorsing posted....and here's what i get...

so what am i doing wrong here?
anyone can advice on this?

AndrzejL 06-29-2008 08:31 PM

Try editing /etc/wvdial.conf and change login to 3 or leave it blank and same with password line. Can you connect to the net using pcsuite under m$? If yes check settings there and use same ones under lnx. Have you tried kppp?

Let us know how this works out for you.

10 The PPP negotiation failed, that is, it didn't reach the
point where at least one network protocol (e.g. IP) was
running.

Can You connect from your nokia handset to the internet? I never used wvdial but kppp instead. Maybe try this one/ I am still using it. Laptop (KBluetooth + Kppp) >>> Nokia N73 >>> Inet :)
