Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

Modem Port Scan<*1>: S0 S1 S2 S3
WvModem<*1>: Cannot get information for serial port.
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 9600 baud

Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Please read the FAQ at http://open.nit.ca/wiki/?WvDial

If you still have problems, send mail to <wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca>

for the benefit of people who could not pull it out here is a solution i worked out for ubuntu jaunty

i added the target vendor and product id to my menu.1st file

then used this command

/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -W -c /etc/usb_modeswitch_zte_mf627.conf

that was it was up and working..

to be noted the command is to be issued as soon as u plug in the modem ..u might have to issue this command two to three times or more ..wvdialconf will detect ur modem at 9600bps


i know this is a crude method but with jaunty buliding in usbserial module i had no choice left and hence had to go this way
the method i wrote on top has given success ..

any better solutions are invited please
