Ubuntu with PTCL wireless

Dear AbdulJani,

Zia Brother is guiding u at correct place
But I want to guide u with some changes in I am personaly using Ubuntu 7.04 with PTCL Wireless Huawei ETS2051 for Internet. You should try to ugrade from Ubuntu 6.10 to Ubuntu7.04.

see below :

Setup A Linux Dialup Connection( Wireless Modem HUAWEI ETS2551 )

(A Contribution by Tariq Zia, Multan, Pakistan)

This guide is useful for setting Wireless Modem HUAWEI ETS2551 dialup connection provided by PTCL in Pakistan or with any other service provider in any other Country (Just u can try). Can be set on HUAWEI ETS 2051/2251 . But not tested on them. OK

Hardware Requirements
* USB/Serial Cable.
* ETS2551 Huawei modem.

System Requirements
* Linux with kernel above 2.6.** (Check it by command in console uname -a).
( Personally Tested on SUSE 10.1 and FC5, Ubuntu 7.04 with ETS2551 )

Let's Start
It is well assumed that Linux is up on your system and your USB/Serial cable is plugged in.
Now in console type command dmesg -c search for the following lines

ti_usb_3410_5052 1-1:2.0: TI USB 3410 1 port adapter converter detected
usb 1-1: TI USB 3410 1 port adapter converter now attached to /dev/ttyUSB0

If u even see ttyUSB0 in the kernel message then also your modem is detected and you are ready to start, now just configure your wvdial.conf in /etc and start your dialup.

If not then possibly u will be seeing the following error messages in bundle but i will paste only two lines here.

ti_usb_3410_5052 1-1:1.0: TI USB 3410 1 port adapter converter detected

ti_usb_3410_5052: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -5

Hello My Friends : ===> Note that the problem is only the USB/Serial Cable not the HUAEWI modem OK.

Now we have to make one rule file in /etc/udev/rules.d/026_ti_usb_3410.rules .In console login as a root

root login : su

root password : *****

cd /etc/udev/rules.d/

vi 026_ti_usb_3410.rules // If u r using KDE environment , U can also try (Now Paste the following lines in it)


gedit 026_ti_usb_3410.rules // If u r using Gnome

(Now Paste the following lines in it)

#TI USB 3410

SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device" ACTION=="add" SYSFS{idVendor}=="0451",SYSFS{idProduct}=="3410" \

SYSFS{bNumConfigurations}=="2" \

SYSFS{bConfigurationValue}=="1" \

RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 2 > /sys%p/device/bConfigurationValue'"


Now once again plug out your USB / Serial cable and then plug - in.

Again type dmesg -c in console

Check the kernel message and find the following line

ti_usb_3410_5052 1-1:2.0: TI USB 3410 1 port adapter converter detected
usb 1-1: TI USB 3410 1 port adapter converter now attached to /dev/ttyUSB0

CONGRATULATIONS it is finally done.

Now edit your /etc/wvdial.conf (Mine as a Sample below working fine)

My /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer ptcl]

Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0

Baud = 230400

Phone = #777

Init1 = ATZ

Stupid Mode = 1

Dial Command = ATDT

Username =

Password = ptcl

PPPD Options = crtcts multilink usepeerdns lock defaultroute

Important Note: Stupid Mode should be set to 1 otherwise the hash sign # with Dialing phone number will not be treated by wvdial. OK.


When u will connect to ptcl with wvdial ptcl command as a root , it will not browse any page and will disconnect.

You have to set the nameserver in the /etc/resolv.conf .You can get the nameserver IPs from the terminal window when wvdial is trying to connect to your ISP.

Put those two nameserver in /etc/reslov.conf.

Now again as a root in console wvdial ptcl. .

FINALLY YOU ARE DONE.>>>>>>>>>>>ENJOY LINUX WITH HUAWEI<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<


I think, It will very helpful to u.
