Glad you got it working, and thanks for posting your wvdial.conf - I'm sure this thread will help somebody else get connected.

<Thanks all!> Just purchased the same hardware as Ankit today... But need Kubuntu's ISO to get started (before that I need to learn how to make Vista SP1 co-exist with Kubuntu). I am sure I would need to go beyond this thread... </Thanks all!>

If you are already using Kubuntu Fiesty then I guess it should not be much of a problem to dual boot it with Vista.

That was my other machine. I'll be setting up new dual boot system on HP 1015tx laptop, from scratch.
I dont wish to continue this dual boot discussion here as it would be veering off the topic. I hope you understand...

Smile it worked out of the box!!

I installed from DVD distribution of Kubuntu and it worked out of the box. I plugged it in, waited for a few seconds... and there it was - all connected and running!!
Had to configure it through wizard though... which just involved pressing next, next and more next till finish appeared.

IMPRESSED!!

Please re-read posts 29 and 30 : Your DNS Servers are not set up correctly in /etc/resolv.conf

Maybe you need to install that command.
Maybe you need to be root to run that command.
Maybe you don't need that command at all (just set up your DNS servers).

It would help us to help you if you told us your distro.

I read those posts but thought that they are interrelated but not generic, anyways i made the changes to /etc/resolv.conf as below

nameserver 202.56.250.5
nameserver 202.56.250.6

does it mean, editing the /etc/resolv.conf?

I have installed Ubantu 9.04 JJ out of curiosity.

Do you live in India? Is your ISP "idea"?

If not then those nameservers may not work for you, because your ISP is perhaps different (and you haven't told us who your ISP is, or where you live. We do not need your street address, just country). Those numbers referred to gaur.ankit's ISP, in India. You (probably) cannot just paste them in and expect it to work.

gaur.ankit posted those (DNS IP) numbers in post #29. He found them by using the wvdial program. See his post for the details. You can do the same, but your numbers are likely to be different.

Yes. But you need the right IP address numbers for your ISP's DN Servers

So, are you using wvdial to try to connect ?

Perhaps it is time for you to re-read this thread from the start. Read it slowly. The clues, hints, and HOWTOs are all here.

I sense too much "windows thinking": I bought, I clicked, it works! (But now I am invaded by viruses, trojans, keyloggers, spam and pr0n. I don't know how this happened. I spent a lot of money on anti-this and anti-that, but my system is still broken: HELP ME ("URGENT")).

With linux, you need to do a little work for yourself, to read and understand. Then it's easy, and you have full control of everything. No more unwelcome surprises.

Yes I do live in India and using the same Modem with same ISP so only in desperate to get a quick solution in this thread as ankit already faced the same issue. but we don't live in same street so the numbers might differ.

The connection information I have is

Interface : GSM (ttyUSB0)

IP address : 115.69.147.134
Broadcast address : 115.69.147.134
Subnet mask : 255:255:255:255
default route : 10.64.64.64
Primary DNS : 10.4.42.15 // I used this in etc/resolv.conf

Quote:

I don't know which one is my ISP address but I tried both options the above one and ankit's.
Quote:

Yes, I edited this file in etc with all fields as above discussed.

I could't find any new thing as more discussion is on usbmodeswitch and getting modem in /dev/
/dev/ttyUSB0 that I already have got it.

hm true, I just switched to linux so wanted to use internet for my other main task but this connection itself has become a task, I'm not a geek but just a user.
