    I forgot to subscribe! Which is why I did not get the notices.

    No worries. I am sure we can get this to work. Just to be thorough, do you have ppp
    (Point-to-Point Protocol daemon) and pppoe (PPP over Ethernet driver) installed?

    All went well. Accept.... it will not connect.

    I tested the modem on Windoz XP/VZAcess, worked perfect.

    I have tried a number of different settings (like: *99***3# - setting the username/password). No connection.

    I shows up in the Network Manager (Verizon 4G LTE) and the "Enable Mobile Broadband" is checked.

    Has anyone else found the missing element to make this work?

    Using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx. Must I upgrade to 10.10?

    --RayJ
    OK, So here is what I have. I had Ubuntu 10.04 and could not connect my pantech to my notebook. I upgraded to the 10.10 release which took a while. After I upgraded, I plugged in the Pantech and my wireless saw it. I added it by typing in Verizon 4G LTE in the name and making vzwinternet my network name. I then skipped all of the rest of the details and it just worked. I think that most folks are overthinking it.od luck

    Alrighty then!

    Just bought a Sony VAIO Laptop E Series VPCEB. (Yes, with windoze)

    I installed Ubuntu 11.10 dual boot. Working well.

    Again, no love for the Pantech UML290 VW. However, using the same info I have already posted here. I am back online with Verizon.

    Re: Verizon Pantech UML 290 Will Not Connect

    Ray you seam to have a better handle on this than most. I hope i can throw something your way and see if you can help.

    I am also running Ubuntu 11.10 but on a Lenovo w510
    I tried your method until I realized I don't get 4G where I am at and your instructions are specific to 4G.
    My goal is to get 3G when I am at a location without 4G


    wcdial.conf
    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = USB Modem 
    Stupid Mode = 3
    New PPPD = yes
    Dial Command = atdt
    Carrier Check = no
    ISDN = 0
    
    [ Dialer Verizon3G ]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 3100000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = ##########@vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw
    
    [ Dialer Verizon4G ]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 100000000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = ##########@vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw
    When I connect I get the following output.
    Code:
    root@name:/etc# wvdial Verizon3G
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    OK
    --> Sending: AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    OK
    --> Modem initialized.
    --> Sending: atdt*99***3#
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    atdt*99***3#
    CONNECT 3100000
    --> Carrier detected.  Waiting for prompt.
    --> Don't know what to do!  Starting pppd and hoping for the best.
    --> Starting pppd at Sat Dec 17 23:31:15 2011

    --> remote IP address xx.xx.xx.xx
    --> primary   DNS address xx.xx.xx.xx
    --> secondary DNS address xx.xx.xx.xx
    It looks like I am connected, but I don't get any Internet.

    Do you have any suggestions?
    Thanks!!

    Re: Verizon Pantech UML 290 Will Not Connect

    Uploading my current configuration:

    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    Stupid Mode = 1
    New PPPD = yes
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Carrier Check = no
    ISDN = 0
    
    [Dialer Verizon4G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 100000000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = ##########vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw
    This seems to connect very quickly now. The old config would give me the

    Code:
    --> Carrier detected.  Waiting for prompt.
    --> Don't know what to do!  Starting pppd and hoping for the best.
    lines after 30 seconds or so. Now it connects after detecting the "prompt" in about 10 seconds.

    Re: Verizon Pantech UML 290 Will Not Connect

    Sorry it has been a while.

    I have made the changes that you mentioned but no luck. Of course I am still only trying to 3G.

    I am traveling to a location that will definitely have 4G this week. Maybe my luck will change at that location.

    Any other suggestions are accepted.

    Many thanks!

    No worries. That is what make a forum great! The conversation will wait for you.

    This one is for 4G:
    Code:
    [Dialer Verizon4G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 100000000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = ##########vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw
    Try adding this to your config:
    Code:
    [Dialer Verizon3G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 3100000
    Phone = #777
    Username = ##########@vzw3g.com
    Password = vzw
    If you are using my GUI script: guiwvdial Verizon3G
    Or just WVDial: wvdial Verizon3G

    Re: Verizon Pantech UML 290 Will Not Connect

    This is a slightly different problem, but since everybody seems knowledgeable here I thought I'd try posting in this thread. It's kind of an emergency.

    I am working with Ubuntu 11.10 that I have upgraded to kernel 3.2 and a Pantech UML 290 (also a LG vl600 but forget about that for now).

    I created a wvdial.conf based on the advice given in this thread.

    It looks something like :

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=3,"IPV4V6","vzwinternet","0.0.0.0",0,0
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    Stupid Mode = 1
    New PPPD = yes
    Dial Command = atdt
    Carrer Check = no
    ISDN = 0

    [Dialer Verizon3G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 3100000
    Phone = #777
    Username = xxxxxxxxxx@vzw3g.com
    Password = vzw

    [Dialer Verizon 4G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 100000000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = xxxxxxxxxxx@vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw

    I started it up with

    wvdial Verizon 4G

    Didn't work the first time, but I unplugged the modem and tried it again right away and it connected. Then all I needed was some iptables work and I was sharing a lightning-fast 4G connection all around my house. Everything was great over night.

    Then this morning I logged in and it worked for about 15 minutes. And then BOOM! The modem disconnected. My linux server froze. After forcing a reboot, the server no longer sees the modem. When I plug it in there is no activity in the syslog or dmesg. It's like it isn't even plugged in. wvdial complains that the tty does not exist, which makes sense.

    Here's where it gets really ugly. I take the pantech modem and plug it into my windows box, and still nothing. Blue light blinks, but it doesn't seem aware of 1x, 3G, or 4G using vzam. So I move my sim card back to my LG VL600 modem and plug it into my windows box, and luckily here 3G works at least. No 4G and no 1x.

    What could have happened to my SIM card? Or my modems (though one was disconnected entirely so that seems unlikely)? Or to my verizon account?

    Thanks in advance for any help! And to those looking to experiment with this, I'd be very careful. I didn't do anything abnormal (other than maybe switching my SIM) and now have no access to 4G.

    Re: Verizon Pantech UML 290 Will Not Connect

    Greetings jayk_s4,

    The first thing I would do is change the [Dialer Verizon 4G] to [Dialer Verizon4G] (remove the space). Then use wvdial Verizon4G to start the connection.

    Did you activate the device via windows before you tried to connect via Linux?

    You should have received a new SIM card with the UML 290 modem. Every time I have upgraded or had a modem replaced, Verizon always sent a new SIM.

    It might also be a problem with the Verizon service. I get this problem about once week now. I cannot connect to 4G for whole day.

    Also, I no longer use this line: Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=3,"IPV4V6","vzwinternet","0.0.0.0",0,0

    I cannot connect with that line in the config, here is my current configuration:

    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    Stupid Mode = 1
    New PPPD = yes
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Carrier Check = no
    ISDN = 0
    
    [Dialer Verizon3G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 3100000
    Phone = #777
    Username = ##########@vzw3g.com
    Password = vzw
    
    [Dialer Verizon4G]
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Baud = 100000000
    Phone = *99***3#
    Username = ##########@vzw4g.com
    Password = vzw
