Smart Internet connection with Modem Haier CE 100 and Nokia 6585 with Ubuntu 9.10

Unlike in Windows, where each of us plugging a device into computer, it always ask for device drivers to be able to recognize what we use, in Linux, generally all devices instantly recognized. We only need to configure it so that device will working. This is possible because Linux does't read the device itself but the chipsets used by the device.

Connection with Nokia 6585

When I use a Nokia 6585 Phone connected with the data cable DKU5, Ubuntu can instantly recognize it as a modem. To be able to connect to the internet, I use wvdial. Here's how:

Download Wdial
Extract the file and you will get four files that you must install all.

Configure wvdial.conf with this command in a terminal "sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf" (without quotation marks).
When Gedit opens, copy and paste this script.
[Dialer smart]
Phone = # 777
Username = smart
Password = smart
New PPPD = yes
Auto DNS = 0
Init1 = ATZE0Q0v1
Init2 = ATE0Q0v1
Init3 = at
Init4 = at + crm = 1; + cmux = 1; + cps = 33; + CTA = 0
Stupid mode = yes
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 230400
Dial Command = ATDT
FlowControl = CRTSCTS
Ask Password = 0
Mode = 1 Supid
CompuServe = 1
Idle Seconds = 300
Save and exit Gedit.
To connect to the internet just type this command in a terminal "sudo wvdial smart" (without quotes)

If it displays something like this,
-> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
-> Can not get information for serial port.
-> Initializing modem.
-> Sending: ATZ
-> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0 = 0 & C1 & D2 + FCLASS = 0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0 = 0 & C1 & D2 + FCLASS = 0
-> Modem initialized.
-> Idle Seconds = 300, disabling automatic reconnect.
-> Sending: ATDT # 777
-> Waiting for carrier.
ATDT # 777
CONNECT 3100000
-> Carrier detected. Starting PPP IMMEDIATELY.
-> Starting pppd at Thu Jan 3 15:19:52 2010
-> Pid of pppd: 2777
-> Using interface ppp0
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Local IP address
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Remote IP address
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Primary DNS address
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
-> Secondary DNS address
-> Pppd:? U `@ l`
Some lines may vary, means the connection is already running and you can surf on the internet.
To end the connection just return to the terminal and press the button and C together

Conection with Haier CE 100 Modem

In order for the modem can be detected by Ubuntu, upgrade your kernel with kernel 2.6.33 or higher. If you have an older kernel, upgrade the kernel by downloading here :
Do not forget to restart ubuntu after install this kernel and select the new kernel in the grub menu entry.

When this modem is plugged into the computer, it will first known as the usb-storage, thereby we must eject the drive mounted by linux to be recognized as a modem. You can right click and select eject or through the terminal with the command "eject /dev/sr1" or by clicking storage device icon in the right top panel.
In order to eject this usb storage automatically by ubuntu, please do the following steps:
Open a terminal and type the following command:
sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/99-evdo-modem.rules
After Gedit was opened, copy and paste this script
SYSFS{idVendor} == "201e", SYSFS{idProduct} == "2009", RUN+ = "/usr/bin/ eject% k"
For the record, the IDproduct and IDvendor can be seen by running the command "sudo lsusb-v" in terminal and you will see a list of devices that we use, a modem that are recognized on the lines of "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 201e: 2009"

Save and exit Gedit and restart Ubuntu, USB storage now will not appear again, and it should recognized automatically as a mobile broadband device.
Fill in your username and password for conecting to the internet, and you now can connect from there by clicking the mobile broadband icon.

In addition, the connection can also be done via wvdial with this configuration on your wvdial.conf:
Auto DNS = on
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0 = 0 & C1 & D2 + FCLASS = 0
Stupid Mode = yes
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
New PPPD = yes
Phone = # 777
Modem = / dev/ttyUSB0
Username = smart
Password = smart
Baud = 460800
Dial Command = ATDT
FlowControl = CRTSCTS
Ask Password = 0
Stupid Mode = 1
CompuServe = 0
Idle Seconds = 300
Other connections also could be established by Gnome PPP.
There was an option to detect the modem and configure connection with a GUI interface.
