Inorder to set up an internet connection using TATA DOCOMO in debian using USB ,u need to do the following steps:
Install ‘wvdial’ —-U will need Debian 5.0 -1 & 2 DVDs to do so.
Install it using
apt-get install wvdial
Once u have finished installing wvdial create a file ‘wvdial.conf’ in the /etc directory.Edit the settings for your TATA DOCOMO connection in the file ‘wvdial.conf’ .
The settings for the connection would be as follows:

[Dialer Defaults]

Init1 = ATZ

Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0



Modem Type = USB Modem

Stupid Mode = yes

Baud = 460800

Dial Command = ATDT

Modem = /dev/ttyACM0

ISDN = 0


Carrier Check = yes

Auto Reconnect = yes

[Dialer Docomo]

Stupid Mode = yes

Password = Docomo

Auto Reconnect = yes

Username = Docomo

Phone = *99***1#

Save the file after editing,dial using
wvdial docomo
Certain messages will displayed in the terminal and you will obtain your
primary DNS address :
secondary DNS address:
Now open ‘resolv.conf’ in the /etc directory and edit the file and place your DNS addresses in the file as
nameserver:primary DNS address
nameserver:secondary DNS address

Now save the file and do wvdial docomo and you will obtain your internet connection.

  1. Space instead of ” : ” in /etc/resolv.conf will be better.
