Configure a Modem

Postby Bali on Wed Jul 30, 2008 8:19 am

Hi,
I am in Indonesia, and almost in the middle of nowhere.
In my factory, my only internet access (and I don't complain because before we just have 56k access...) is through a CDMA provider (I don't think you use it in Europe, but it is like gprs), by a USB Dongle - Modem (Identify as Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port).
Anyway I tried to set it up, without success. I look everywhere in Google: no success.

For your info, when i go to the Network Manager amd point to the USB Port, enter the phone number (*777) + log + pass, it detect it directly as a GPRS connection, even if i try to set it up a a simple modem.

Anyway, it don't works: after expect ok, nothing happen.
Should I set it up manually? If yes, please help me, i really don't know how.

Infos below. Thanks for your help in advance!
