Modem configuration written to /etc/wvdial.conf.
... good, you have followed one
part of my advise successfully. This means that everything went just fine. But what about the other parts of my advise?
I am getting tired of repeating myself - perhaps I am not being clear? If you do not understand something, please let me know and I will rephrase it.
Just to make things very clear, I've divided the advice into three (3) parts. Please complete all three
parts before replying. Keep a record of what happens in each part. Your reply should include a record of what you did and what happened in the form of copied terminal input and output. If, for any reason, you are unable to complete all three parts, please explain. Otherwise I will know I am wasting my time and I will bother you no more. Thank you - the three parts follow...
Open a terminal and enter
You will get a lot of output that looks kinda like this
simon@errata:~$ cat /etc/wvdial.conf
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 115200
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyS0
ISDN = 0
; Phone = <Target Phone Number>
; Password = <Your Password>
; Username = <Your Login Name>
... you copy your
version and paste it here.
To make this conf file work, you need to change the last three lines. So, in terminal again, enter the following:
sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
Using the editor, you need to remove the semi-colon (
from the start of those last three lines. Also remove everything in the chevrons (< >) as well as the chevrons. Replace all that with your details... i.e. instead of <Target Phone Number> you write in the phone number for your ISP, instead of <Password> you write your ISP account password, instead of <Your Login Name> you write the name of your account (eg. if you are normally firstname.lastname@example.org
, then your login name is "joebloggs").
Save the file, and exit.
In the terminal again, enter
... copy the output and paste here.
