# Basic Requirements:
1. A Web Enabled Phone that can be connected to the PC using a data cable, bluetooth or infrared
2. A GPRS activated mobile connection
In BSNL the balance should be more than Rs. 50 for the GPRS to remain activated. To activate GPRS an sms has to be sent: "GPRS E" to 53733 [removing the quotes]
The usual cost is 2 paise/ Kb. But BSNL has an offer which provides 30 days unlimited net for Rs 189 [by easy recharge from an BSNL outlet] and probably Rs 51 for 7 days unlimited net.
2.Connecting the phone to the PC
The phone can be connected to the PC using the USB data cable, bluetooth or infrared with the help of the driver tools provided with the phone. Hence the phone will be ready to be used as a USB modem connected to the PC.
3.Settings for the Modem on the PC
Start > Settings > Control Panel > Phone and Modem Options > Choose your modem > Click Properties > Choose tab Advanced > At Extra initialization commands, enter code:AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","www.e.pr" > OK
4.Setting up an internet connection
Though an internet connection can be setup for Motorola MotoRokr E6 using the PhoneTools software provided with the phone, in any usual phone a new connection has to be setup using the DialUP Networking function of Windows using the following process:
Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > New Connection Wizard > Next > Connect to the Internet > Next > Set up my connection manually > Next > Connect using a dial up modem > Next > Choose your modem > Next > Type "bsnl-gprs" > Next > Type "*99#" or "*99***1#" or "*99***2#" or "*99***3#" > Next > The Username box can be left blank > The Password box can be left blank > The Confirm box should left blank too > Next > Finish
While using the setup process through the mobile PhoneTools the following data may be used:
Username : <blank>
Password : <blank>
Access Point Name[APN] : www.e.pr
In the browser used on the PC, certain proxy configuration must be made in the "Tools>Options>Advanced>Network>Connection Settings" button for Firefox and in the "Tools>Internet Options>Connection Settings>DialUp and Virtual Private Network Settings>Settings" button for Internet Explorer :
Proxy server : 192.168.81.163
Port : 8080
But sometimes this process works without this proxy configuration thus providing better speeds.
Now u r ready to go, connect the net and surf your way through. The net though gets connected at 115.2 Kbps but you will get nothing close to it. Though this net is good for surfing and casual downloads but sites loaded with heavy images and graphics are hard to open eg. Orkut etc. Hope you find this article useful.
