Internet connection through WLL BSNL in linux


I ‘m using a wireless Internet connection (BSNL WLL connction).This post may be of use to newbies in linux ,trying to connect to internet through a dial up connection.The first step to be done is

  • To install ‘wvdial’ 

In debian distro, the package is available in their distribution cd.For installation try the command

apt-get install wvdial

 the package can be downloaded from the link below

http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/i386/wvdial/download

the package can then be installed as

dpkg -i wvdial-xx.deb 

  •  configuring the file /etc/wvdial.conf

 now the file /etc/wvdial.conf has to be configured according to connection requirements ,the overall structure of the /etc/wvdial.conf can be obtained from link

my wvdial.conf file looks like the one below

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = at+crm=1;+cmux=1;+cps=33;+cta=0
Stupid Mode = yes
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = USB Modem
New PPPD = yes
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = xxxxxxx
Password  = xxxxxxx
Baud = 460800

 here in the file for the users using BSNL – WLL  connection have to replace
username  and password provided to them by the service provider
Username = xxxxxxxx
Password = xxxxxxxx

now to be able to use the connection ,first we have to register the dial-up modem to their kernel.as provided in the link

then the user can browse onto internet by just dialing

in the terminal.
