First, thanks for the reply. Nice to see people in this community ready to help out.
I'm from the Philippines under Globe Telecoms network.
The CHAP thing I indicated is the settings I saw when I plugged it to a Windows machine. The authentication method selection is a dropdown list that is disabled so it means that CHAP is the only authentication I can have. It worked in Windows XP. I can connect to the internet in an instant.
In Ubuntu 11.04, I did it this way:
1. Boot without the modem attached.
2. After Ubuntu is up, attach it.
3. In a little while, when I click the network manager applet icon on top, the settings I made for the modem appears and click it to connect.
4. After a few seconds: GSM Network: Disconnected. You are now offline message appears.
Tried to reboot and do #1 and #2 above but this time connect using Gnome PPP. It connects but in 36 seconds it disconnects. I wasn't able to view a web page.
I don't have an idea what's a Virgin setup, though.
Before I made Ubuntu detect this device, I did the following:
1. Plug it in a windows machine, open Hyperterminal and send the command:
2. I also did this:
and add these lines in the end
sudo gedit /etc/init.d/rc.local
modprobe -r usbserial
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0x1402
4. Trigger the New Mobile Broadband Connection wizard. Device was detected fine.
5. Move forward and select my country (Philippines), the telecom provider (Globe) and the plan (postpaid). All info was there already, including APN settings. I have changed the authentication method to CHAP only.
6. Connect to the internet (but failed)
In Windows, here are the settings I have seen:
+ DNS is set to auto
+ Authentication: locked to CHAP
+ Username and password: blank
+ LAN interface setup:
IP address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
The device is also a wireless LAN router that allows up to 5 connections.
Did I missed something in the settings of the Mobile Broadband Connection? (I do not know where to indicate the other settings (aside from CHAP))
Thanks in advance for all the help.
