    Tata Indicom Photon+/Reliance Netconnect Broadband+

    Hi, I'm Albert and I'm planning on getting a temporary internet connection. Is it possible to use "Tata Indicom Photon+/Reliance Netconnect Broadband+" USB modems with Ubuntu or any other distro?

    Yes you can use both in Ubuntu . It works perfectly in Ubuntu 9.04 but in the latest 9.10 there are some issues with mobile broadbands in general .It ll be resolved when updates are released hopefully .

    I use Tata Photon + with ubuntu 9.04 and fedora 12 at home.

    Works out of box and very good experience.

    Summary of configuration :
    - Plug the device
    - click on the right top cornet network icon.
    - mobile broadband icon tab
    - number is #777
    - username : internet
    - passwd : internet

    Exactly same steps for ubuntu 9.04 and fedora 12.

    The method given in their Tata manual about wvdial utility is old and doesn't work.

    I'm using XUbuntu 9.10 and faced a lot of problems while connecting my Tata Indicom Plug2Surf modem using the NetworkManager Applet. (Although it works in Ubuntu 9.04.) However, it works perfectly with wvdial.

    Hi
    Thanks buddy, I was able to solve the issue of TATA Photon+ in my friend's machine who has completely changed to Linux recently .

    Hi Suresh,

    I did the exact same thing when I went to a Reliance Netconnect outlet to get a wireless modem as you have outlined. However the username and password given was a 10-digit phone number and the password was the same. Unless the password and username are wrong I did all your steps.

    How do i connect then. Please reply ASAP. I will be leaving India shortly and want to give this to my family. my wife is using Linux but not familiar with the CLI.

    Thanks
