Reliance Netconnect and Broadband is used by many people now a days. When we purchase the device reliance provides the windows driver installation disc. The latest devices also has an automatic installer, the moment you plugged in the device the installer pop up on the screen and asks for proceeding with the installation process.
But this tutorial meant for the EC325 Huwei Reliance Netconnect users. 99 % it is possible to make your device work with this tutorial. If the steps given here fails for you, then you can leave us a comment to try suggesting other steps, for your issue.
Step 1: Connect your EC325 device in pc’s USB port.
Step 2: Open the Terminal and escalate your privilege to Root by typing “su“
Step 3: Then edit the file using your favorite editor. I normally use “nano“, hence the command will be like “nano /etc/wvdial.conf” without quotes. There is one possible error triggered for many users in this step. Wvdial not installed. In that case you need to install it manually by typing “sudo apt-get install wvdial” in your terminal.
Step 4: Paste the below lines and remove the already existing config.
INIT1 = ATZ
INIT2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = 0
Phone = #777
Username = xxxxxxxxxx
Password = xxxxxxxxxx
Step 5: Alter the username and password xxxxxx fields to your mobile number.
Step 6: Save the wvdial.conf file by pressing the keys “ctrl+o” and type “wvdial” in the prompt.
Step 7: Ensure you have root privileges or sudo permissions for the user id you are going to dial with now. Type “wvdial” in the terminal and you will see the dialing sequence on your screen. Wait for few minutes till you see the ip address on the screen which is assigned by your ISP.
If you encountered any problems in the above steps then it could be due to.,
1. Username or Password mismatch, so double check it.
2. Check with Reliance operator whether your connection is in active state.
The above configuration i have doneÃ‚Â to my clients and did work well with their systems. Few other Reliance Netconnect modems and Reliance new broadband plus modem works with ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope simply by executing the command “wvdialconf” in the terminal (ensure you have root privilege).
The command creates the configuration file for the connected Reliance netconnect modem automatically. No need to follow these manual steps for it.
