You will get output with some device info like this :

[17186714.588000] usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address

At the end of this output you will find your device witch will be represented like this: ttyACM0 or ttyUSB or similar , make note of it you will need it later.
Now type in terminal:

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep Vendor

Output will be similar to:

< P: Vendor=1234 ProdID=5678 Rev= 0.00

Make note of lines: Vendor=1234 , ProdID=5678

Now in teminal type following code Replacing values 1234 and 5678 with your own output from previously noted lines ::

modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1234 product=0x5678

Now you will edit wvdial config file by first typing in terminal :

sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

In new opened window replace all text with following :

[Dialer Defaults]
Stupid Mode = on
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Baud = 921600
Init = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Phone = #777
Username = ??????????

Password = vzw
Init1 = ATZISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Auto Reconnect = on
Carrier Check = no
[Dialer shh]
Init3 = ATM0
[Dialer pulse]
Dial Command = ATDP

In the line “Modem =” replace ttyACM0 with value you noted from output of dmesg command.
In the line ” Username = ” put your phone number followed by your providers domain, for Verizon it is area code, your phone number and domain, in this format: for Sprint it will be, for AT&T / Cingular WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM, for Alltel and so on, further post have config’s posted for other providers.
In line ” password = ” in case of Verizon put: “vzw” for Cingular: “cingular1″ and so on, make sure to check with your provider as username and/or password may differ for other regions and countries.

If you are Cingular/AT&T subscriber and after completing whole guide you have problem with dropping connection you have to add another int line in wvdial script which is posted here
If you need any specific info regarding your domain or password please contact your cellular provider.
The last thing you need to configure is wvdial line checking, by disabling LCP echo checking witch is not supported by most of providers.
Open terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/ppp/peers/wvdial

And insert aditionally those lines:

lcp-echo-failure 0
lcp-echo-interval 0

Make sure your ethernet jack is unplugged and wifi radio switch is turned off.
Now you can start connection by typing in terminal :


Another thing i have been suggested is automating the connection process.
To do so in Gnome go to :

System > Preferences > Sessions next, click on the tab labeled, “Startup Programs” then click the “Add” button.
In the Startup Command field, enter “wvdial” and then click “OK”.Then restart your system.

Now make sure your EV-DO card is inserted before you boot it up, it will initiate the connection process automatically in the background connecting you to internet the second you log in.

    Needless to say, luxuries watches come with hefty
    price tag - some with an extremely hefty price tags.
    For an old Rolex watch is only as good as it is maintained, and
    the same is true for all luxury brands in the market.
    They give a great deal on all the watches, for both men and women.
