Reliance Netconnect+ on Ubuntu

If your Reliance Dongle is not working on Ubuntu then follow the steps given below to fix this problem:

1. The very first step for this is, you’ve to get some temporary internet connection. Connect your Laptop or PC to Ethernet connection.

2. Open the Terminal by Ctrl+Alt+T.

3. Run the following commands to update your Ubuntu system:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

4. Now install the following packages using terminal window:

$ sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch

$ sudo apt-get install wvdial

5. After this, put your Reliance netconnect+ usb modem into the usb drive. After waiting for about 20 seconds, you can give following command in terminal window:

$ lsusb

* Note down ZTE WCDMA Technologies device id and product id on a piece of paper.

In my case it was 19d2:fff5

Here 19d2 is device id and fff5 is a product id.

6. Create new file using following file:

$ sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/90-zte.rules

7. Enter following code. [ everything is one line ]

SUBSYSTEM==”block”,SUBSYSTEM==”scsi”,ATTRS{model}==”USB Storage FFE9″,ACTION==”add”,RUN+=”/sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfff5″

and save this file. Please remember to change the vendor id and product id as noted down on piece of paper earlier.

8. Now give following command and press return:

$ sudo /sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfff5

9. On command prompt type following command:

$ sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

10. This will create wvdial.conf file in your /etc directory. Edit this file using following command.

$ sudo nano /etc/wvdial.conf

remove ; before username and password.

username = your 10 digit mdn number
password = your 10 digit mdn number

save this file.

11. Now you can create a connection in network management under Mobile Broaband. Give anyname for the connection say “Reliancenetplus”

Number should be #777
Username is : mdn number
password is : mdn number

mdn number is like your mobile number in 10 digit. Save this connection.

12. Disconnect your earlier connection using wired or broadband connection. From network manager you will now see Reliancenetplus . Just click.

You are now connected…

Enjoy. 🙂
