[Solved] D-Link DWM-156 3.75G USB device

Postby dotlj » 2010-11-26 06:43

We're in an Asian country for six months. Most ISP's wanted a two year contract for internet access. Found one that gave us six months, using a SIM card and a D-Link 3.75G USB device (DWM-156). A few days searching have turned up lots of ads and little useful information.

The wiki gives info for Novatel and Option, but other information seems to be missing. http://wiki.debian.org/Modem/3G

Any ideas or suggestions welcome.

Searching turned up some help in other languages, one especially for the D-Link DWM-156 by Ethan Hsiao with his bash script.

All I had to do was adjust the wvdial.conf file and it works. Great. Three weeks with no internet, and 310 MB upgrade for Squeeze, took just over 30 minutes, which is ten times faster than my old connection. Here is the wvdial.conf - obviously you can removed the commented lines or change things for your case.
Code: Select all
[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
stupid mode = 1
Modem Type = USB Modem
# Baud =460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
# ISDN = 0
Phone = *99#
Username = "ISPname"
Password = "internet"
