Zakang ZX410 CDMA phone on linux, connect to the Internet with it
Few days ago I bought a brand-new Zakang ZX-400 phone, from a local CDMA
Also, I have opted for a monthly subscription, including unlimited internet access.
The main issue is that they provide drivers/instructions for WinXP/2000, and I'm not going to use Windows just because of this :)
Ok, I plugged it in...
kernel: cdc_acm 1-1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device kernel: usbcore: registered new driver cdc_acm kernel: drivers/usb/class/cdc-acm.c: v0.25:USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters
It looks like a standard acm modem.
Let's try to use it with wvdial
apt-get install wvdial nano /etc/wvdial.conf --------------------------- [Dialer Defaults] Phone = Username = Password = New PPPD = yes [Dialer unite] Modem = /dev/ttyACM0 Baud = 230400 Phone = #777 Init1 = ATZ Stupid Mode = 1 Dial Command = ATDT Username = net Password = rapido PPPD Options = crtcts multilink usepeerdns lock defaultroute
Then start it:
After a few debugging messages, the connection is up! ;)
