Uninterrupted Internet connection

Yesterday, I connected my computer to Internet at about 9PM. At 11PM, I turned off the monitor and went for sleep, with some download and upload work in progress. when I woke up at 6AM today morning, the connection was still there and the upload work has been completed. I haven’t been connected to net for such a long time and my dial up connection with land phone always breaks if its connected for more than 2 hours. So, from now onwards, I could put something in download when I sleep….! Doesn’t it seems great? For me, its really great!!!
But, still, I can’t configure the GPRS connection in Debian. I tried my best, but its not even detecting my phone. As Shyam told, I downloaded a software. But for it to install, more than 10 Perl modules need to be downloaded and installed. I ‘ll give it also a try. If anyone know how to configure, please help me.

  1. Hi,
    I have been searching over the net for Airtel GPRS Connection are landed on your site. The site has been quite informative and intersting especially about the airtel GPRS connection. I would like to know more about that. I am planning to have a gprs connection from Airtel. Just like what you have puchased. How much will be the cost for browing and downloading. Is it unlimited? How much i ll have to recharge the sim for getting the connectivity. Thanks for all the information

    AirTel GPRS provides unlimited data transfer(Both downloading and uploading). There aren’t any extra charges for downloading. The speed they claim is 115.2Kbps; but I am receiving a maximum of 7KBps.
    The charges are paid monthly and it varies from places. Here, in Kerala, its RS 250.

    Hi u can increase the speed of your gprs connection

    networkplaces->view connections->connection properties->config->select the speed

    maximum of 960 kbps is possible using cell phones

    There isn’t such an option for me. May be it varies with phones…
