Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Online With Dial-up

Jan 9, 2010

I'm having trouble getting online, and therefore getting software, codecs etc, (I'm using another computer for this post) because the only option I have to connect to the web is through 56k dial-up modem, and this is apparently akward with ubuntu. I'm currently trying to work out how to get Ubuntu to recognize my modem. I have over-written Vista, which was previously on my laptop, although I did make recovery discs (though I really don't want to have to use them).

This is making it difficult for me to even find the model of my modem (it would involve reinstalling Vista and checking for the device under device manager, or Vista equivalent).I was advised to download the "Official Ubuntu documentation", and that this had a 'how to' section regarding dial-up modems. I downloaded it and searched it and found nothing as such. I also have downloaded the Ubuntu pocket guide and found nothing on the topic in it either.I can get online (via dial-up) on my XP machine, and also have USB storage sticks.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial-up Networking In Lucid Lynx 10.01 ?

Feb 16, 2011

I've been running 8.04 Hardy since its first release, and was hoping to deal with its loss of support by going to 8.10 but learned that it has already been dropped.

So I'm back to installing 10.04 - and up against the bizarre choice to drop dial-up networking! Fortunately, I have my 8.04 machine still live, and I've researched it extensively without success.

The best summary of what I've done follows this post I found online:


I read many threads about dialup, including those on this forum; made sure to get an external hw modem [USRobotics 5637 USB, advertised as controller-based and tested to work in Linux], to avoid the softmodem/winmodem problem.

Using the 10.04 LiveCD, I installed the four .deb packages that are in poolmainwwvdial and in poolmainwwvstreams.

Now I'm stuck because I get errors when I try command line stuff, errors like "cannot open /dev/modem" and "can't find /dev/modem in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"

I'm confused; I've read so many threads with so much different info that I can't sort it out. Maybe I'm following info that applied to earlier versions of Ubuntu. Every error I try to fix leads to more errors. Can someone suggest a constrained, step-by-step procedure to ensure I've mounted the modem, added myself to whatever groups, and whatever else I need to do?

I know there's no wizard to make it simple, but is there a checklist or something to help me sort this out? I have the ISP info, DNS primary+secondary server numbers, phone numbers, etc. Is there a UI/graphical path, instead of command line? Had no idea this would be so difficult.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Use USB Dial-up Modem?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using an external Huawei CDMA fixed wireless terminal (phone + dial-up modem). It connects to my PC via a USB port. Actually my PC recognizes it (after driver installation) as "TIUMP Serial Port". I guess the driver is a kind of USB adapter for a serial port.

I can't get it to work in ubuntu 9.10. I ran wvdial (after installing dependencies and wvdial package) and it doesn't recognize my device as a modem. Is there any solution to this problem? Without solving it, I won't be able to go online from ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial Up Modem - Cannot Connect

Apr 20, 2011

I have been working for the last week trying to connect my serial hardware external modem (courier 56K v.everything) within an Ubuntu 10.4 environment. I live in the boonies where I am presently forced to use dial up, so this has got to work, else I cannot update Ubuntu or download software. After trying various suggestions, which my very limited Linux skills fail me, I opted for the suggestion that I download gnome-ppp, install and then use it. Seeing how I cannot download it through Synaptic Package Manager (which I was advised to but can't as it is my Linux computer that I am trying to connect).

I downloaded the zipped file (gnome-ppp_0.3.23_Oubuntu2.tar.gz ) to a USB stick, copied it to the home directory and then extracted it, wherein a new directory was created with many files in it. From here I have been unable to install it through the command line (not sure how), nor have I been able, as was suggested, to install it via the Synaptic Package Manager (can't get it to see the file, not sure how to). I need explicit (Newbie) instructions on how either to connect the modem without gnome-ppp, or instructions on how to get gnome-ppp installed.

Therefore, I need the command how to dial the existing DSL connection via terminal.

Jan 8, 2010

I just can't seem to get this thing going. I've also tried Gnome-ppp. Press detect and it says "no modem installed" I did install it in Windows as well to make sure the darn thing actually works. It did perfectly.

Your US Robotics modem attached at /dev/ttyACM0 >>> The problemt: wvdial for some reason cannot use it

I had to edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file with gksudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

john@ubuntu:~$ sudo wvdial

Ubuntu Networking :: Control Dial Up Modem (start And Stop)?

Feb 22, 2010

After much work finding the bits and bobs to get my PCI controller based modem working in Ubuntu 9.10, I need a better way to start and stop it. Now it dials up when I reboot whether I want to be online or not. I can stop this, but it won't dial up again without a reboot.

I would love a way to push a button to get it to connect and disconnect, and blinking lights (like the green computer screens in WinXP) to tell me when I am communicating. Even better would be a way to set up multiple connections, again like in XP so I could use a variety of numbers and/or user names depending on where I am.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Dial Tone Detected Gnome Dialer

Jul 27, 2010

I'm trying to resolve an issue with a dial up modem and really need some help. I haven't used dial up in many years and not even sure how to approach the problem. Making matters worse, I haven't had a landline phone in years, so am trying to troubleshoot this problem and each time have to take it back to a friend, for whom I have installed Kubuntu 10.04. All works fine on my high speed ethernet and wireless, but I can't get the dial up she needs to work.

The system is a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop. KInfoCenter reports an ATI Technologies SB400 AC'97 Modem Controller. I know the modem hardware is fine, as it was working perfectly when I removed Windows XP and installed Kubuntu 10.04.I tried using KPPP, however KPPP will not let me set the DNS to Automatic...it is grayed out. So, I've installed both wvdialer and Gnome Dialer. Gnome Dialer seemed to set up fine and all user info. number to dial, etc. was set up.The problem is that when a telephone line is connected to the modem and you attempt to dial, no dial tone is detected.I don't know how to approach this, not how to troubleshoot it. I would be happy to provide any logs or output here, if someone can tell me what to do.

Ubuntu Networking :: Catch 22 Setting Up Dial-up Without The Proper Apps?

Nov 2, 2010

I'm sure this has been covered before but how does one go about setting up a dial-up Internet connection without wvdial or gnome ppp?

My brother lives in a remote area with only dial-up Internet service. I got him set up with an external serial modem plus a disc with Ubuntu 9.04 and WUBI. Apparently wvdial is not included in the basic install. I will be visiting him in a few days and I would like get him going with his dial up. He currently has Windows XP and WUBI installed. I tried sending him a disc with wvdial but it didn't include the dependencies. Is there any way I can download a package on a disc?

I have a Novatel 760 broadband USB device and I use kppp to connect though it is extremely slow (ping takes 100ms). What I need is a way to make kppp connect on reboot without any interaction from the user. I have looked on the Internet, but I did not find anything useful. I am using kppp because I could not get gnome-ppp to connect and it does not seem to have the features of kppp.

Fedora Networking :: Configuring Dial In Over Usb - Serial Converter ?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm trying to do something very old, but for me very necessary. I am trying to get dial in acces via a modem that is connected via a usb <-> serial converter. I am running F14. The serial port is OK. I can run minicom and access the modem and even interogate it. What I am unable to do is to get the computer to answer. Much has changed and I have not dealt with upstart and things like that (if indeed that is needed).

I believe I"m OK with 115200 communicating with the modem. I know the device is /dev/ttyUSB0.

Is ther someone who can fill in the blanks? Or, point me towards really good documentation that explains how to do this.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect Adsl Modem / Cannot Create Dial-up Option Where Can Give Username And Password?

Apr 9, 2010

I use an atom based processor of 1.60 ghz on intel d945gclf board. My ram is a zion 1gb @ 533mhz. Hdd is from western digital 80gb @ 7200 rpm. I have a broadband(dsl) connection from bsnl dataone (a state owned telecom service provider). I connect to internet via a huawei wa1003a ethernet/usb/wireless modem which is provided by my service provider. I need a username and a password everytime i connect to internet via dial-up.

I was using windows xp service pack ii. It was nice and easy installing my modem on xp either via usb or ethernet. Both ways it was easy as i have both the drivers with me.Only and main problem was fighting viruses. I tried many free downloadable anti-virus software to protect my maching. Initially they were fine. But after few months they stopped taking regular updates and became non-functional. I also tried symantec corporate v.10. But it has its drawbacks also. It made my machine perform like a snail.I had previously heard about linux based operating systems. But never tried one. As i am an ameteur in using computers windows xp was suiting my needs. Recently i saw an article in the newspaper about ubuntu which is a free open source operating system. And most important to me it is virus free.But here is a problem also. I cannot connect to internet. My ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala is not identifying my modem and a network between my modem and my machine cannot be established. Also i cannot create a dial-up option where i can give username and password.
