step 1: go to terminal by applications >accessories>terminal or alt+F2 and type gnome-terminal.
step 2: in the terminal type sudo pppconfig then enter the roots password and then after that the pppconfig dialup utility will appear.
then select create connection . just write something like orange , then select next when it comes to configure nameservers just put dynamic then select OK . another window will appear askin for authentication method just select pap and then input orange for username and orange for password then speed let it stay at 115200 select OK and then if it tells you to choose between tone and pulse leave at tone and select OK to continue then input the dialup number which is *99# continue untill you see Choose Modem Config Method and selct yes to enter the modem port manual untill you see Manually Select Modem port , input /dev/ttyUSB0 then select OK , it will then give a summery of the configuration just select Finished Write Files and return to main menu select it and thats all.
