You need to install the `wvdial` package using the package manager.Just run the following command, being the root user,

wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

Open the file /etc/wvdial.conf in your favorite editor, and key in the proper username/password. Save the file. Then run,

wvdial

You should be able to connect to the internet.

Regards,

This seems your modem.

you can do this to make your modem recognized...CDMA modem is usually detected as /dev/ttyUSB0 or/dev/ttyUSB1

Code:
#modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfffd
run this as root or sudo

check with dmesg to see whether your modem is detected...

then you will need wvdial (run wvdialconf first ) or kppp to create connection.

Modem is not detected

when i run wvdialconf follwoing was the output

sivakumar@sivakumar-desktop:~$ wvdialconf
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S1 S2 S3


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/wiki/?WvDial

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

Before invoking wvdialconf you need to execute this...

Code:
#modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfffd
as root.

This will set your modem at /dev/ttyUSB0 hence it is easier for wvdialconf / wvdial to detect/see the modem and make internet connection.
