Hi,

First use the following command to see if your card is being detected by kernel.

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

Then you can use the following script for the installation, you can check if this is for your version of Ubuntu.

#!/bin/bash

#This program automates task of setting up connection for Reliance USB Card on Ubuntu Hardy Heron. This program does not come with any warranty whatsoever. Please use it at your own risk.

# Detect Modem
echo "Modem Detected: $(lsusb | grep -i huawei | cut -d" " -f7-)"

# Get Connection Number from User
echo "Enter Your Reliance Data Card Connection Number : "
read connection
echo "Setting up connection with $connection"

#Install Gnome PPP Package
echo "Installing Required Packages.."
sudo apt-get install -y -q gnome-ppp wvdial

#Add entries to /etc/ppp/ppp-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
echo "I:Modifying necessary system files to allow dialing with Gnome PPP..."
sudo chmod 666 /etc/ppp/pap-secrets /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
echo "$connection * $connection" >> /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
echo "$connection * $connection" >> /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
sudo chmod 600 /etc/ppp/pap-secrets/etc/ppp/chap-secrets

#Start Gnome PPP
echo "We are all set.... "
echo "Starting Dialer..."
gnome-ppp &
exit 0

    Also you may have issues with gnome-ppp.



    You can try the following steps.



    copy these lines into /etc/wvdial.conf

    Baud = 115200

    I had connected datacard before booting my system.
    (I have enabled root login):
    I executed following commands.



    Quote:



    #lsusb
    It listed many things along with my new reliance usb datacrd.

    then,


    Quote:



    #wvdial cdma
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60

    --> pppd: `�[13] `�[13] ��[13]
    Now minimized the terminal and started firefox (work offline has to be disabled). It worked.
    (For disconnecting I use ctrl+c in the terminal. can anyone suggest the correct method?)
    .
    .
    If datacard inserted after booting of Ubuntu, command #lsusb didn't show the datacard.
    I executed



    Quote:



    #modprobe usbserial
    after sometime,



    Quote:



    #lsusb
    it worked. (I am not sure ubuntu automatically deteced it or 'modprobe' command did it).
    Then as usual


    Quote:



    #wvdial cdma

Problem in configuring IP address in Konica Minolta bizhub 210 Copier, Printer, Fax


Is there network card is installed in it, if yes then you can configure it with your network go to machine Manu in machine control panel and the in network settings here you can give the IP address and subnet mask after then reboot the machine.
If network card is no installed behind the machine then you can use its built-in USB or and parallel printer without NIC card.
