Thread: Configuring 3G+ GSM Internet on Linux with Nokia E-Series

    Default Configuring 3G+ GSM Internet on Linux with Nokia E-Series

    Hello,

    Nowadays there are many ways to connect to the internet. I have broadband wireless at home but I also have this Nokia phone E-61. My Phone provider offers 3G internet via such phones. When I go for fieldwork I carry my laptop with me to places where there are no hotspots but the GSM network is present and internet connection is possible via them but a time fluctuates to EDGE or worse still to GPRS.

    I have connected successfully on Windows OS. I haven't tried on Linux. My question is thus this:

    1. Is it possible for connection to be made in Linux through and Internet Connection Sharing Setup such that 2 to 3 other people can share my internet connection wirelessly via either blue tooth, LAN or Wifi?

    * techfan80,

    should work. Connect the phone via USB cale and run dmesg.
    Do you see a new tty device being set up? If so, configure this tty device as a modem in Networkmanager, KNetwork, Yast, whatever.
