A small update to the cellular browsing

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I have uploaded a replacement¬†wvdial.conf for the cellular entry below. Notice that for Cellcom in Israel, you need an init string AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”internetg” . which is embedded into the file. For other cellular providers, you might need a different string.

For Cellcom users out there – this is the right init string. If you are on an “Cellular Internet” package, do not use AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”WAPU” !

A nice dial-up script

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

It’s either me, or NetworkManager sux. This is the most incomplete and incompetent piece of software I have ever seen. The only reason I actually use it is that there is no better alternative which does whatever NetworkManager manages, somehow, to do.

My initial thought was to setup NetworkManager as the dial-up component. What should be more obvious than that? Well, it just won’t connect, and its logs are horrific at best. So back to gksudo script for us, then…

You can put this script in /usr/local/sbin/ and change its permissions to eXecutable (by root, of course), and then add a nice menu item called “Cellular Internet” in your Gnome Menu. It should run ‘gksudo /usr/local/sbin/

That’s all.
