How to connect citycell zoom ultra modem in ubuntu 8.10

I was trying to connect my citycell zoom ultra modem in my ubuntu 8.10.

My modem’s model name: ZTE AC-2726

After searching a lot the following steps worked for me

Insert the modem in USB interface and see if that gets detected.

$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 19d2:fff5

To make it detected as modem we will use usb-modeswitch package. It is a Switching tool for controlling “flip flop” USB devices.

Download usb_switch package from here and install.
$ sudo dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_1.0.2-1_i386.deb

Unplug and plugin the modem back.

$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 19d2:fff1
<- Notice the change in product id

$ sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfff1

You can see in the logs that the modem is detected correctly now. To detect & configure the dialer config run:

$ sudo wvdialconf

Check and add the missing entries in wvdial conf as found below:
$ sudo vi /etc/wvdial.conf
Phone = #777
Password = <Your Password>
Username = <Your Login Name>
Baud = 460800
Stupid Mode = 1
New PPPD = 1
Tonline = 0

$ sudo wvdial

The connection started working. Note that you can also configure gnome-ppp or kpp to connect.

It should work.

if not try connecting in different usb ports the run this two commands each time u want to connect

$ sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfff1

$ sudo wvdial

It should connect.

Thanks
