    Lightbulb no more problems with your..mDSL

    hi all .. many people were wory about that ubuntu don't support their internet wireless card they .. i had had the same problem .. but no it's no more ...!
    well in 8.04
    i did the following :
    1-in terminal :
    lsusb
    that to list ur USB devices
    and here u will have a list of ur usb devices..
    2-
    sudo modeprobe usbserial vendor=xxxx product=xxxx
    the xxxx should be filled from the list that u got from the first step..
    3- then use Kppp or gppp to add ur configurations ..
    note that may not work from the fist time and u may need to restart ur system...




    and for 8.1
    u don't have to do none of the above .. just in the network settings add ur username and the password to the ppp connection and that is all!


    and good luck!

    None of this works for the AC8700 CDMA2000 1X mDSL Wireless Data Terminal used by Sudani.

    Anyone know how to make it work?

    @Netcowboy

    Thanks.

    Yes, there is this thread in the Linux4Sudan forum:

    http://www.linux4sudan.org/viewtopic...144cca4d9#2497

    Unfortunately (for me) it is entirely in Arabic!

    I am an absolute beginner in Arabic (as well as Linux).

    I would be extremely grateful if you could translate it for me.

    I do hope that is not too much bother.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Thumbs down Re: no more problems with your..mDSL

    well Jefferies I use da same mdsl modem you use
    open you terminal ( applications ===> accessiories ===> terminal)

    modify your wvdail.conf:
    sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

    you gave it a shot and use mine
    PHP Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Phone 
    #777
    Username =sudani
    Password 
    =sudani
    New PPPD yes
    [Dialer mdsl]
    Stupid Mode on
    Modem 
    = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud 
    9216000
    Init 
    ATZ

    Phone 
    #777
    Username sudani
    Password 
    sudani
    New PPPD yes 
    put that instead of yours

    ( I got more setting cause I use Gnome ppp )
    after you did this save it then
    type :
    PHP Code:
    wvdial mdsl 


    ps: modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 <=== if it didn't work try another one

    sorry I'm not good at helping lol

    UBUNTU Rocks

    Thanks for the help, Netcowboy; however, things are still not working.

    At console I entered the code as required. I did not get the same output as you indicate. In fact all I received was the following:

    PHP Code:
    Phone #777
    Username sudani
    Password 
    sudani
    New PPPD yes 
    I assume this is because I was not using Gnome PPP.

    What is Gnome PPP?

    If this means KPPP, I cannot install it as I do not have it on the installation disc... and guess what? You need an internet connection to install it. This is bloody frustrating and I am beginning tto believe a lot of my colleagues who know more than me who argue that Ubuntu is badly supported and poorly maintained.

    I am now disinstalling Ubuntu as it clearly is simply wasting my time.
