    Re: 8.10 and USB Modem ZTE MF636BP / MF636

    ... and your last try:

    - boot without modem
    - from terminal: sudo stop network-manager
    - from terminal: sudo killall modem-manager
    - attach modem, wait 20 seconds (blue led preferred)
    - check that you have 0031: lsusb
    - try connection: sudo wvdial

    (most are from post#46)

    EDIT: other option is to use the last created ttyUSBx as the modem definition into /etc/wvdial.conf file:
    from dmesg or ls /dev/ttyUSB* you can see the ttyUSB0,1,2 (possibly ttyUSB3 also). Then edit /etc/wvdial.conf to have Modem = /dev/ttyUSB2 (if ttyUSB2 is the last one).
    >>> connection using MF636 is always 'under construction' with Ubuntu

    Re: 8.10 and USB Modem ZTE MF636BP / MF636

    ok i followed those steps and when i plug the modem in it goes to a solid blue light
    and shows up on lsusb and then when i run wvdial i get the same results as my above post
    #51 is it more likely that there is a problem with the computer itself or the modem(shouldnt be the modem it new and only got regestered last week)
    thanks for all your help

    Re: 8.10 and USB Modem ZTE MF636BP / MF636

    Hi everyone,

    Many thanks, I got the MF636 working with Bigpond on my Netbook, Ubuntu Lucid 10.4

    Heres's my wvdial.conf :

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB2
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    ISDN = 0
    Baud = 460800
    Dial Attempts = 1
    Username = ian.williams2@bigpond.com
    Password = xxxxxxxxxx
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = AT&F &D2 &C1
    Init3 = ATS7=60 S30=0 S0=0
    Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","telstra.bigpond"
    Phone = *99***1#
    Stupid Mode = 1

    NOTE: the highest Modem reported by ls /dev/ttyU* was /dev/ttyUSB3 which did not work when I put it in the above .conf file.
