    Many thanks to GeorgeVita!

    I had exactly the same problem on my Asus Eee PC 901.

    Re: wvdial: command not found

    Hi himanee, welcome to this forum!

    Usually a Huawei modem can be used with network manager, so as you have the 'real modem mode' try: right click on network manager icon, edit connections, mobile broadband, add, select country/provider.

    Alternative solution: wvdial
    Auto configuration needs root user: sudo wvdialconf
    but you don't need it now. Just edit your /etc/wvdial.conf file:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
    Copy the following data into gedit window:
    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    Baud = 460800
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = "#777"
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = AT&F E0 V1 X1 &D2 &C1 S0=0
    ; Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"
    Stupid Mode = Yes
    Username = <YourNumber>
    Password = <YourPassword>
    Replace above your username and password (for your internet provider) and ask them if they need a specific APN (if so you must remove semicolon from Init3 line and replace the word internet with the suggested one).

    Connect using sudo wvdial and remove 'offline mode' from firefox (ALT+F W).

    Post any progress to follow up.

    Regards,
    George

    Re: wvdial: command not found

    George, link #1 and #5 are good. The others are dead.

    I'm running 9.10 on a P4.

    Thanks for your efforts. From another post I understand 9.04 still has wvdial in it. I'm going to downgrade I think.

    Re: wvdial: command not found

    Hi SanoTwo, thanks for your test & trigger on above post!

    >>> to install 'offline' wvdial on Ubuntu 9.10 4 .deb packages needed:

    1. libwvstreams4.6-base_4.6-2_i386.deb
    2. libwvstreams4.6-extras_4.6-2_i386.deb
    3. libuniconf4.6_4.6-2_i386.deb
    4. wvdial_1.60.1+nmu2ubuntu1_i386.deb

    Which can be downloaded to desktop and double click 1st to install. When finished continue with the 2nd, 3rd, 4th (in above series 1-2-3-4 one by one).

    Warning: above links and my wvdial910.zip file are for Ubuntu 9.10 running on i386 architecture. For other you must find appropriate packages.

    Note 1: Above solution is for those that do not have other internet connection to the ubuntu PC (cannot use synaptic).

    Note 2: although pppd and pppconfig are included into Ubuntu 9.10 release, wvdial method is more documented in a lot of Howtos.

    Note 3: Above file links are valid as per 8-NOV-09

    Regards,
    George

    Re: wvdial: command not found

    Thanks George. Actually I am running 9.04 but I have not had the time to solve the issue.

    -for the thread- I was using this page, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Di...to/SetUpDialer , and see that I also had a printing issue (w/ my XP machine for some reason).

    Got it going now and turned on the Update Manager to make my installation "whole" I hope.

    Note: For some reason, 8.10 and 9.04 didn't like some of my hardware. Stuff that was available running the Live CD wasn't installed w/ either of the above distros on two separate machines. gparted is one that wasn't installed. Otherwise, I'm posting now on 9.04 through a dialup ext. modem that wasn't installed when I originally loaded 9.04. Maybe that's the reason Network Manager wasn't available for me to use.

    Re: wvdial: command not found

    Still failing after all these years?

    Who is this system for?

    Mark S. This is absurd.

    There must be a simpler way, or I'd be glad to use an older version of Ubuntu or figure out some other distribution in order to have working dialup.

    Don't discount the lowballers, je vous en prie!

    Many Thanks to GeorgeVita for the wvdial info to get Ubuntu 9.10 connected to the Internet.

    You do not need to download them, just use the .iso or LiveCD or LiveUSB following the procedure below:

    1. right click ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso and 'open with archive mounter'
    (or mount LiveCD/LiveUSB)
    2. right click on icon created (from 1) to 'browse folder'
    3. create a folder on Desktop (ex. named 'wvdial')
    4. copy into that folder all 4 .deb files that exist into .iso/LiveCD/LiveUSB
    ... /pool/main/w/wvdial
    and /pool/main/w/wvstreams
    5. use System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager
    and then from menu File > Add downloaded packages > double click Desktop and then the folder you created at point #3, click open, follow instructions to install

    (above procedure is fully tested, other ways may work also)

    Regards,
    George
    I am stuck on step 5 here. I double click on Desktop and the folder Wvdial appears that I made. I double click on this and the 4 .deb files are all shaded out or faint. Wondering what I am doing wrong here?

    Hi ntu,
    these files are 'shaded' but you can click on 'Open' to continue and finally 'Apply' to finish installation:
