    - this creates
    Code:
     /etc/vwdial.conf
    3 Edit wvdial.conf
    this is copy of my edited wvdial.conf:-
    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

    New PPPD = yes
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Username = user
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud = 9600

    Password can be either pass or net (lower case)
    username = user or net (lower case )
