setting modem smartfren in ubuntu

setting modem smartfren in ubuntusmartfren is the first operator in Indonesia to implement EV-DO Rev.B technology that can support fast internet access of up to 14.7 Mbps.

smartfren, a provider of CDMA technology-based telecommunications service provider in Indonesia, today confirmed its leadership position in the Indonesian telecommunications industry by expanding the use of leading-edge technology, EV-DO (Evolution Data Only / Evolution Data Optimized) Rev.B phase 2. EV-DO Rev.B technology capable of supporting fast Internet access of up to 14.7 Mbps. Previously, smartfren recorded as the first operator in Indonesia to implement EV-DO Rev.B technology by implementing the first phase of this technology - access speeds of up to 9.3 Mbps in Bali in January 2010.

now around me. friends, family, relatives smartfren many are using a modem. one time I borrowed to test the speed. I guess the same as the other modem. on ubuntu, i try connecting the modem is in a way I have ever tried. please read here. and the results failed. why? I was very confused. does not support modem smartfren?

without thinking I'm trying to find out on google. and can I conclude about how to connect the modem using wvdial. complete the following way.

1. open terminal. sudo su
2. install wvdial ( sudo apt-get install wvdial )
3. If you've installed the application virtualization like VMWare Workstation or VirtualBox, please turn off your first service virtualization applications by using the following command:

# sudo /etc/init.d/vmware stop
# sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv stop

4. Turn off networking service is also to ensure that your system is not connected to other networks:

# Ifconfig eth0 down

5. By default, evdo smartfren ZTE AC682 create a virtual CD-ROM device with the name /dev/sr1 or /dev/sr0. Eject the device by using the following command:

# eject /dev/sr1 or # eject /dev/sr0

6. Make sure you have eliminated the usb storage device such as USB Flash Drive and so on, then remove the usb-storage driver also with the following command:

# rmmod usb_storage

7. # lsusb
result : Bus 004 Device 003: ID 19d2:ffdd ONDA Communication S.p.A.
If the result is different, please unplug the modem and repeat the above steps all over again

8. Load number of parameters to the kernel usb_serial modem by typing the following command:
# Modprobe usbserial vendor = 0x19d2 product = 0xffdd

9. # wvdialconf
make sure there results the words "Found a modem on / dev/ttyUSB0".

10. edit the file /etc/wvdial.conf
# nano /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer smart]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
modem Type = Analog modem
Phone = #777
New PPPD = yes
ISDN = 0
Username = smart
Password = smart
modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 460800
Command Line = ATDT
Stupid Mode = 1

11. and finally you connect with the command
# wvdial smart

good luck :)
