Set up your PPP dialer, just as you did in Windows for your dial-up connection. You don't say what your "data cable" is...is it serial or USB? Set your device in the PPP setup (you don't say if you're using KDE or Gnome), such as KPPP, to be whatever device your 'data cable" is attached to. For some, it's /dev/ttyUSB0, or /dev/ttyS0, etc. Put in the phone numbers, etc., and dial out.

What have you tried so far?

Please write clearly...

You don't say how you're trying to add a new modem connection, so it's hard to say what to change.

You can either find the USB ports (usually), as /dev/ttyUSB0, etc., as I said in my first post. Either change the device, or make a symbolic link ("ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem" should do it. Replace the /dev/ttyUSB0 with whatever your "data cable" is).

The Nokia Mobie is a cell phone with Internet connectivity
Might try something like
Code:
iwlist wlan0 scan
to see if you see a wireless lan connection
Code:
 lsusb 
iwconfig wlan0
Might show the Nokia device.

That would work, but he's not trying to set up a wireless networking card, but get his cell-phone to dial out over a USB wire, as he originally posted. The device isn't going to be wifi...linux is going to see it as a serial/hard-line device..

Well, you are probably right, but when I saw GPRS in the original post I took it to refer to either 2G or 3G wireless Internet connectivity as in Iphone on the ATT 3G network or Blackberry Storm over the Verizon Network.
