    Support was added for the e200 into Kernal 2.6.20 so it should work out of the box.

    I am also trying to get e220 on BT.

    I know you said your not on vf but here is an example of a wvdial.conf that can be used as a template things will need to be changed like Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","" and other things. Hopfully this gives you something to work with.

    ~#nano /etc/wvdial.conf or wherever your wvdial.conf is.
    navigate with arrow keys
    save with ctrl+x Y enter.

    I am having trouble installing wvdial. i have installed wvstreams-4.4.1.tar.gz and wvdial-1.60.tar.gz but when i try bt ~ # wvdialconf, i get error
    wvdialconf: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
    I know where the file is how can i show wvdial where it is, or does it need to be installed to somewhere particular?

    What did you do to install wvdial on BT?

    Australia - Vodafone - Hardy - wvdial.conf example

    [Dialer 3g] this could also be [Dialer Defaults]

    Init2 = ATZ
    Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = *99#
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    username = username
    Password = password
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Baud =460800
    Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP",""

    Default (Orange) Huwaei E620 3.5G Modem on eee901, BT3 Support

    hey guys,

    I have a eee 901 which has an huwaei e620 3.5G modem, built in,

    Currently runs perfectly in my primary os, eeebuntu but i cannot get it to start in BT3

    Just wondered if anyone else has had the same issue and how you may have resolved it.

    NB. I am running BT3 from a SD Card and have not et up persistent changes.

    I would be happy to install BT3 as long as the huwaei works as I need it for my travels.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
