Because my laptop is a laptop with 512 RAM, then I want to embed a lightweight operating system based on Linux. Results from googling that here finally I am interested to install linux Backtrack 5 R3. After successfully implanting Backtrack 5 R3, the first time that I want to do is to install huawei modem, because I wanted to connect to the internet in order to install the multimedia such as vlc, adobe pdf reader and equip backtrack 5 r3 with LibreOffice. As the information that I lived in Indonesia with SIMPATI gsm provider, so for the wvdial configuration please adjust to the conditions of each.

Application used to install Huawei E173 modem is as follows :

  • libxplc0.3.13_0.3.13-1build1_i386.deb
  • libwvstreams4.6-base_4.6.1-1_i386.deb
  • libwvstreams4.6-extras_4.6.1-1_i386.deb
  • libuniconf4.6_4.6.1-1_i386.deb
  • wvdial_1.61-2_i386.deb
To download all 5 packages above, please download HERE .

Once downloaded wvdial package, please extract the unzip and run the following command :
root@bt:~/Downloads# unzip
root@bt:~/Downloads# cd wvdialtool
root@bt:~/Downloads/wvdialtool# dpkg -i *.deb
Furthermore, we also need the usb-modeswitch applications and application can be downloaded HERE .
root@bt:~/Downloads# unzip
root@bt:~/Downloads# cd usb-modeswitch
root@bt:~/Downloads/usb-modeswitch# dpkg -i usb-modeswitch-data_20100127-1_all.deb
root@bt:~/Downloads/usb-modeswitch# dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_1.1.0-2_i386.deb
If all the applications already installed, it's time setting diulup wvdial. Here is an example of setting the modem huawei E173 with wvdial number gsm SIMPATI (my country Indonesia) :
root@bt:~#  vim /etc/wvdial.conf
[Dialer Defaults]
Auto DNS = 1
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
New PPPD = yes
Phone = *99***1#
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = ''
Password = ''
Baud = 9600
To check on the usb modem ttyUSB port number please do the command :
root@bt:~# wvdialconf
And to make an internet connection with wvdial diulup, please run the command :
root@bt:~# wvdial
