Tested with a Vodafone umts connect card
Be shure to have 3G kernel module activated..or choose and recompile it. Bind to /dev/ttyUSB0 shoult be automatic when insert the card..if not check your usb modules(no firmware is required now)
I've started to write this application because my kppp died..:(..i think they had upgrade it or upgrade pppd..so i was not able to connect anymore..even with gnome-ppp. WvDial provides a good stable connection..and resolvs my kppp problems.
HOW TO USE IT
standard kubuntu kernel 18.104.22.168
When u plug a 3g card,for first time,all modules will be upload and usb serial attached to /dev/ttyUSB0 modem device. I've noticed that wvdial accept(tell me if wrong)only /dev/modem as device. You can easly create this link by pressing "Modem Link" button on Kevdial interface. Once created link you could put your data to empty txt spaces in the left corner.
-You must know if your provider needs an account with NAME and PASS.Ex.Vodafone(italy)does not an account required..so put everything u want(but put it!or doesn't work)
- In next release a list of international umts number will be inserted. But now u must know, at buying act,your number to call(normally *99** or *99***1#..depends on provider and CID number)
- Save .config file in /tmp before start connection..if u don't wvdial will fault
-Once saved,active syslog logging(if don't start syslogd)and finally start wvdial to connect. In 15-20 seconds you will be connected..without specified any private DNS..and u can watch connection from built-in konsole monitor. If realtime syslog make your memory lower..stop with "STOP" button..this not influence wvdial connection.
What's New in This Release:
· Rename project in K-Umts to help internet search (kumts in germany means other..lol)
· Finally the button "modem link" now can recognized if symlink is activated or not
