Singtel Mobile Broadband on Linux

After several months of attempting to get Singtel Mobile Broadband Modem working on linux, i finally got it working.

  1. I installed gnome-ppp (kppp would do as well)

  2. i ussued the command as root:

    this is to detect which device your usb modem is using (e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0)

  3. Adjust the setting on gnome-ppp for the device (/dev/ttyUSB0 - depends on what device is detected when you run wvdialconf

  4. Init2: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

  5. Init 3: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"

  6. Phone number: *99#

  7. Username: dummy password: dummy

  8. Once the modem is connected and already has dns, issue the command on root
    cp /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /etc
