Some modems are Windows Only. Sounds like that's what you might have.

It is not difficult at all. Please do the following:

1. Install Samsung PCStudio on your computer.

3. From the menu on the PCStudio connect to the phone.

4. When connected then you must from the Menu start the internet connection.

5. Give all the details the SW asks for.

6. And you will be connected to the internet.

This procedure is for the first time only. Second time onwards, whenever you connect the phone through USB cable this will automatically start using the phone as a modem.

I am using samsung 3g metro gt-s5350 with MTNL sim. I am able to surf the net on the mobile but not able to use it as modem for using internet for my laptop. It is showing "os error, remote device...

Samsung PC Suite - Internet through mobile modem -Error 619 - Data Cable

Rectifying the error

1. Samsung USB modem driver (Download from Samsung ' Local Link)

2. Connect Your Samsung with a working Internet connection ( via )USB Cable
3. Samsung PC Studio or any other Samsung mobile drivers are not installed


1. Connect your Samsung Star 3G to your PC and install the modem drivers that you have downloaded.

2. Goto Control Panel > Phone and Modem Options

3. Select the Modems tab. You will see Samsung mobile modem listed.

4. Select it and click on Properties.

5. Goto the Advanced tab and put the following in the box for Extra Initialization Commands:


( or tye AT+CGDCONT=1, "IP', "apnname")

eg:- +cgdcont=1, "IP", "bsnlnet"


6. Hit OK and exit.

The next step is to create a dialler for your Samsung Star 3G mobile modem.

Error 619 solved

1. To create a dialler, Goto Control Panel>Network Connections

2. Hit Create a New Connection and proceed as follows (each sub-point is for each screen of the wizard):

2.1 Network Connection Type: Connect to the Internet
2.2 How do you want to connect to the Internet: Set up my connection manually
2.3 Select Connect using a dial-up modem
2.4 Select Modem-Samsung Mobile Modem
2.5 Type an ISP name according to your preference (could be anything)
2.6 Type*99# as the phone number ( or type *99*1*1# or *99***1# )
2.7 Leave Username, Password and Confirm Password fields blank
2.8 Hit Finish

That would complete the wizard and make a dial-up connection for you. Dial it and you will be connected to the Internet via your Samsung Star 3G phone modem without using Samsung PC Studio

Can you lease help me how to connect to the internet using my samsung B5310 as modem to my laptop

First check that your Phone should support to work as a Modem. If yes then Just connect the Phone with your Laptop (the cable provide with your Phone Provider). Normally you receive the software also with your Phone. As soon as you connect the Phone it will start installing Drivers, Make sure you should have CD/Media to install the drivers. Once the Driver installed successfully. Then you can start connecting with the Internet.. (It would be needed user name and password , Please contact your Internet/ Connection Provider).

Please clarify which OS you using and which connection you are using. SO that I can give you exact steps.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction>

The connecting to internet is very easy in linux .

There are many steps but i am saying simple one

Initially configure the adsl router with ppoe over ethernet and enable dhcp address option.

Next plug the ethernet cable from router to the inteface of lan card.

Boot the redhat machine.

In the system-->Administration-->network options check whether lan card is detected and active .

If the lan card is not active activate and save

In lan card select option assign assig ip automatically

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

Where is Linux mbr file

There's nothing like the Linux MBR File. The option to boot to multiple operating systems is controlled by a software called as the "Boot-Loader".
Windows XP and Linux both have their versions of boot-loaders. The Bootloader that Windows XP uses is called the NTLDR, whereas Linux provides many bootloaders (prominent among them being "Grub" and "LILO").

>but Linux is shown in the manage option from the My Computer in Win XP 2.....
That is the control section of NTLDR. So from what I understand you shouldn't have a problem selecting the operating systems.

If you want the Linux bootloader taking control of the boot process, you can always install it.
All you need is a Linux CD and then run the setup for "Grub" or "LILO".

Information about installing Grub or LILO can be found easily on the internet.
