Wireless internet with T-mobile, Knoppix, and bluetooth


Posted this in the wrong category earlier. Oops.

I discovered this today and had to share it with the world because, damn. It's cool.

Step one: Download and burn the latest version of Knoppix.

Step two: Acquire a T-mobile phone with bluetooth and GPRS capability. I used a Siemens S56, but I suspect a number of bluetooth GPRS-capable phones will work as well.

Step three: Acquire a USB bluetooth adapter of some stripe. I am using a Belkin F8T001

Step four: Attach USB bluetooth device and insert Knoppix CD.

Step five: Turn on computer, let knoppix boot. (you might need to change the boot order in the BIOS to get it booted, but probably not)

Step six: Click on the lower-left penguin icon , select Network/Internet, then GPRS connection.

Step seven: Select bluetooth connection, then custom init string. Edit so that it reads thus: AT+CGDCONT="1","wap.voicestream.com"

Step eight: Enter the same password into your blueooth phone and the computer. It will dial and attempt to connect. It will disconnect because you have not added the PC to your phone as a trusted device. Hit CTRL-c to disconnect. The Phone will ask you if you want to add the PC as a trusted device. Do it. Go back and follow step six and seven again. This time the connection will work. Wait patiently for a few seconds while it finds the DNS servers.

Step nine: Congratulations. You're in business.

I have the Nokia 6610 w/o bluetooth but infrared is equally fine - I can use it as a modem in a pinch.
I found - others please chime in if you know better - that I have to symlink /dev/modem -> /dev/ircomm0 in order for kppp to pick it up, but from there on it behaves like a normal wired modem. In minicom, you can get the usual AT responses.

thanks, that helps me too, because I was trying to set it up(but did not have time to dig into it for a longer time). but I want to buy a bluetooth adapter, because it is much easier to connect thorough bt than infra(mainly when you are travelling). but my problem is, that I want a bt adapter, which will work fine under linux too. or even better if somebody know a wi-fi pcmcia card with bluetooth(if something like that exists), because I am going to buy a wi-fi pcmcia card too, but I have the same problem, that I need to find one which will work fine with linux. thanks a lot.

Dear Friend,

I too have a NOKIA 6610 / Redhat Linux 8.0 / ES620 IrDA adapter. I want to connect to internet with this setup from Linux through NOKIA 6610 GPRS setup. Please let me know how to do it? I have not installed any driver related to Infrared so far.

Thanks in advance,
T.KaruppuSwamy

Well, first you have to get your IRDA going. I'm not familiar with the 620, I have used the SigmaTel. You need to get the Irda over USB activated. There are howto's how to accomplish that.

When that's done, enable the Irda connectivity on your 6610 (menu 12 -> Infrared), hold it to the 620, and run irdadump. You should see some chatter like

Code:
13:20:16.283924 xid:cmd 93dc2b28 > ffffffff S=6 s=5 (14)
13:20:16.283908 xid:rsp 93dc2b28 < 0000f87d S=6 s=4 Nokia 6610 hint=b125 [ PnP Modem Fax Telephony IrCOMM IrOBEX ] (27)
13:20:16.323902 xid:cmd ffffffff < 93dc2b28 S=6 s=5 (14)
13:20:16.373910 xid:cmd 93dc2b28 > ffffffff S=6 s=* mlplaptop hint=0400 [ Computer ] (25)
13:20:16.423904 xid:cmd ffffffff < 93dc2b28 S=6 s=* mlplaptop hint=0400 [ Computer ] (25)
Then fire up minicom (pick /dev/ircomm0 as the serial line, 115200 8N1), and try some AT commands, such as AT I3.

Now for GRPS, I haven't done that. I still have a dial-up account for occasions like this, and that's where I dial into. So in this setup it works like a classic modem where you connect your phone line.

Hope it helps, don't hesitate to ask more questions if you get stuck.

mlp
