MTS Settings for Ubuntu 12.04

I switched to ubuntu after the new LTS release and was having some problems with my MTS Mblaze connection. Sometime’s it’d work and sometimes it wouldn’t. There seems to be a bug in modem-manager which constantly keeps crashing so I decided to use wvdial instead. We need to install the wvdial package

sudo apt-get install wvdial

and then create the file /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer mts]
Stupid Mode = 1 
Inherits = Modem0 
Password = mts 
Username = 
Phone = #777 
Init1 = ATZ 
SetVolume = 0 
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 
Baud = 115200 
FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS) 
Dial Command = ATDT 

Then we can connect to the internet using

sudo wvdial mts

This is the output that I get when the dialer is run. Occasionally it will have some problems you can just disconnect and try again.

  1. Thanks for the message. But I am having trouble. It is not connecting for me. As mentioned, I installed wvdial. Copied the configuration parameters into /etc/wvdial.conf as you have suggested. But when I run the command, I am getting the following error message:

    $ sudo wvdial mts
    –> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61
    –> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
    –> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
    –> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory

    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
