Help steps may be help to the users of bsnl wireless phones to connect to the web.
Please see the ‘Note’ it step 6 before starting…

1. Find the product and vendor ids.( You may need to become root).

$ lsusb

2. Now load the driver.

$ sudo /sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0×VVVV product=0×PPPP

Where VVVV is the vendor id and PPPP is the product id of your phone.

Note: If an error like “usbserial not found” shows up in ubuntu jaunty then please skip this step and do what is said at http://blog.dipinkrishna.info/2009/07/usbserial-not-found-in-ubuntu-jaunty.html and then continue the steps below.

3. Now load the ppp driver

$ sudo /sbin/modprobe ppp_generic

4. Check dmesg output

$ sudo dmesg

I got it as
[ 227.271459] /build/buildd/linux-2.6.24/drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for generic
[ 227.271485] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.0: generic converter detected
[ 227.271616] usb 2-1: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0
[ 227.271627] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.1: generic converter detected
[ 227.271687] usb 2-1: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB1
[ 227.271697] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic
[ 227.271700] /build/buildd/linux-2.6.24/drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core
[ 276.412779] PPP generic driver version 2.4.2

5. Now run wvdialconf.

$ sudo wvdial.conf

This will create a skeleton of wvdial.conf

6.Edit it so that it looks like

$ sudo gedit /etc/widial.conf

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = at+crm=1;+cmux=1;+cps=33;+cta=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = YOUR_USERNAME
Password = YOUR_PASSWORD
Baud = 460800
Stupid Mode = 1
Auto DNS
Check Def Route

Note : The Init2 & Init3 & Baud are for BSNL CLARITY PHONE…Others please use there phone’s specific…. if you have windows installed, get it from modem properties….

7. Now run wvdial to connect

$ wvdial

I got
