problem in connecting net through wireless data card from my laptop

Hi All,

I've just joined in this forums and i'am facing the follwoing problem.

I'm trying to connect internet through wireless data card (Huawei ECXXX) from my laptop , fedora core 5 was installed in it.

After device was detected,
i've load the driver using modprob

# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001

driver was also loaded properly.

Next i've edited the file /etc/wvdial.conf with the following entries

# emacs /etc/wvdial.conf
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS)
[Dialer cdma]
Username = Phone Number
Password = Phone Number
Phone = #777
Stupid Mode = 1
Inherits = Modem0

After that

#wvdial cdma
> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Sat Mar 3 22:55:20 2007
--> Pid of pppd: 24314
--> Using interface ppp0
--> local IP address
--> remote IP address
--> primary DNS address
--> secondary DNS address

Till now everything is fine.

But i'm not able to connect to net.

Do i need to install wireless card driver.

#iwconfig command was not showing any driver installed

Please help me.
