EVDO on Linux

Here is a tip on how to setup the EVDO on Linux. Since the EVDO vendors are not shipping any softwares to support EVDO on Linux, this post might be helpful.

  1. Plug your EVDO to the USB port.
  2. As a root user type
  3. Look for the vendor ID and the Device ID (for BSNL it’ll be 05c6:3197). Note it down.
  4. run (Use ID’s from step 3)
    modprobe usbserial vendor=0x05c6 product=0x3197
  5. run
    gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

    and add the following line

[Dialer Defaults]
Dial Command = ATDT
Flow Control= Hardware (CRTSCTS)
Username =
Password =
Phone = #777
Stupid Mode = 1

Now you can connect to the internet using wvdial.
