Have you read this (http://www.bsnlevdo.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=28) yet? It seems like a pretty good guide.

ya....definitely, as i told i given a lot of effort.....but by running "lsusb", it is not detecting my USB modem, thus not got o/p Qualcomm, which is displayed when detected.

Add these lines

Baud=115200
Dial Command = ATDT
Baud=115200
Dial Command = ATDT
init1=ATZ
init2=AT+CRM=1
Flow Control= Hardware (CRTSCTS)
Username = <your username>
Password = <your password>
Phone = #777
Stupid Mode = 1

save it.

type wvdial to connect.

Thanks....thanks a lot.....one more thing, whenever the ubuntu is restarted, i am required to connect each time by dialing "wvdial".
I tried by adding "wvdial" to session list but not worked. Any sol?

Is there any GUI dialer which i can have to connect, which has txt boxes for username and psswrd?
