I wanna connect to Internet using Samsung Mobile Phone


Windows and Samsung PC studio Software
I used to surf internet in my Laptop(Windows Xp) using
Samsung PC studio software with the help of my Mobile Phone.

When i am in Linux without Samsung PC studio Software

I am using Ubuntu 9.1 and trying to connect internet through Samsung Mobile Phone C6112
When i connect this mobile Phone to the Ubuntu through Cable wire, The Ubuntu recognized its a Samsung Usb Modem.I tried using Mobile BroadBand Connection Settings in Ubuntu.its not helping.

Solutions which are useless
1.People says that Wine cannot be used to execute the Windows Version Samsung PC studio Software Because the Wine Cannot recognize the USB activities.

Please help by giving me any kind of Drivers or any firmware.

Might help if you actually bothered TELLING US what problems/errors you're getting, and where, or even what kind of phone you're using. Just saying "it's not helping", tells us nothing. Have you tried using wvdialconf, to see what it tells you?

Might also help to not complain about answers you might get...and according to WineHQ, that software was rated "garbage", and doesn't work. Drivers/firmware don't come in to play here...either the PHONE itself will show its services and be accessible to a computer, or it won't. In which case, you will HAVE TO use the manufacturers software to make it work. Also, the latest Ubuntu is 11.xx...an upgrade MIGHT help things get working, since more hardware is now supported.

It sounds as if you are trying to use the phone's internet connection sharing feature to allow a Linux computer to connect to the internet.

If so and if the phone is a Windows phone, the Windows internet connection sharing feature likely will not work with Linux. Microsoft wrote it so that Windows internet connection sharing works only with Windows computers.

I used to have an HTC Excalibre with Windows Mobile 6.x and sometimes used the internet connection feature. I doubt that Microsoft has changed its philosophy.
