ok guys i was told that there is a simpler way to connect your reliance netconnect broadband+ in Linux . I do not know if it works with Ubuntu 8.10 and 8.04 , as i did not have the chance to try it out . I ll update here once i do get the chance . This is possibly the simplest way to connect your Reliance in Linux

This was done in Ubuntu Jaunty using the Huawei 168cĀ  modem

PROCEDURE

Just plug it in.

“Preferences>Network Connections> Mobile Broadband” should detect “Auto Mobile Broadband CDMS connection”

select the connection to add phone number “#777” and you username/ password, both of which should be your 10 digit phone number.

that is all. choose the connection from notification area and enjoy.

in case it does not work. just try the following command on the terminal.

“sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf” which will
detect the modem and install it for internet connection.

Update:

Both the Huawei modems i.e EC 168 and EC 1260 work out of the box in Ubuntu Jaunty JackalopeĀ  ! You can use the default Network manager to install the device .

Cheers !
