Wvdial is an open source software that is used for internet connection. I usually use wvdial to connect with my GSM card and using USB modem. Wvdial application is very useful as internet connection application, because It can keep stability the internet connection, is better than software your modem. Wvdial has installed on linux Ubuntu 9.04, so we only insert some code on wvdial.conf to running it. This article will explain how to configure wvdial for internet connection using GSM card. I don't issue any guarante this article will work for you.

The data, that is needed to connected on cyber world with GSM card :
  • APN

  • Username

  • Password

  • Pin, but using wvdial, we don't need pin.

  • phone, in Indonesia we use *99# as dial phone.

Let's configure and start wvdial

  1. go to terminal and type

    $ sudo pico /etc/wvdial.conf

    copy bellow code and paste to wvdial.conf

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud = 3600000
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","yourapn"
    Area Code =
    Phone = *99#
    Username = yourusername
    Password = yourpassword
    Ask Password = 0
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Compuserve = 0
    Force Address =
    Idle Seconds = 0
    DialMessage1 =
    DialMessage2 =
    ISDN = 0
    Auto DNS = 1

    You have to change :

    • yourapn : changes with your apn and don't remove double quote
      e.q.: in Indonesia, we have indosatm2 or internet as APN

    • yourusername : change with your user name if needed, there are some providers don't use username and leave blank.

    • yourpassword : change with your password if needed, there are some providers don't use password and leave blank.

    • Phone : customize to your country or provider internet connection.
      e.q.: in Indonesia, we use *99#.

  2. Run wvdial

    $ sudo wvdial

    Please wait, you will be connected to your provider. Ok LOL, I hope this article will be useful for you.

Hi there!
I would like to know if the Ubuntu software also works outside the US. Also, do you know how much does it cost? Does it come with an installation manual?
I've been searching for documents about internet and I found this site: Yellow documents.

Hi Caroline,
If You install ubuntu on your pc, You don't need to worry about how to get ubuntu software, cos when connected on internet, you can install ubuntu software via internet repository.
