Hi Guys,
The Mobile Broadband for 9.04 using Vodafone saga continues . . . and
I'm not too sure if I'm beating a dead horse or not here.
So, anyway, I ended up buying the modem, and after reading a fair bit on
various forums and Google searching etc I'm up to the stage of trying to
connect.  The modem itself is a Huawei K3520 (from Vodafone) and from
what I've read it can work with a bit of perseverance using
'wvdial' (from a terminal window).
I think my main prob' now is trying to determine the right config' for
Australian settings in the wvdial.conf file. At present it looks like
[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB1
ISDN = 0
Phone = *+61451358399#
Password = username
Username = password
Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP",""
But, when I try to connect, I'm getting this:
opm at rob2:~$ wvdial hsdpa
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Warning: section [Dialer hsdpa] does not exist in wvdial.conf.
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
--> Sending: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP",""
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT*+61451358399#
--> Waiting for carrier.
--> No Carrier!  Trying again.
--> Sending: ATDT*+61451358399#
--> Waiting for carrier.

"Warning: section [Dialer hsdpa] does not exist in wvdial.conf"  <- does
this mean I need a different script variation or something?
Any assistance, much appreciated.
