After a long time, the latest version of Debian detected the USB modem in my LG G1600 phone. Querying is success, but I haven’t yet tried connecting net. I am always misfortunate, because by the time my system recognized the USB modem, Airtel, the service provider which I use for the GPRS connection has reduced the validity of RS 274 GPRS recharge from 30 days to 15. Now, I should try with Idea, which provide GPRS at the rate of RS 9 per day.
I was also successful in configuring the permissions of the fat32 file systems accessible through Linux. Now, I could give write permissions to individual users by editing the “etc/fstab” file. This is much needed for me as by brothers are also using my computer and I don’t want them to accidently delete any files in the fat32 partitions.
The exams till now, was somewhat easier compared to the first exam, M1. Four exams are over by now and there are five more left.No Comments | Read More...
Here in Kerala, Airtel has introduced recharge coupons of RS 2.00 with the caption “Randil oru Gundu”. It is somewhat like trying luck. Every coupon will carry a gift, starting from a single AirTel to AirTel call to even 1 year validity. Due to the amazement, I bought 5 coupons. In total, I got 6 days extra validity, 1 minute any Local mobile call, 2 minutes AirTel to AirTel and 1 SMS. Its not so bad for RS 10, I think.3 Comments | Read More...
Today, after two months, the AirTel GPRS got disconnected. As it was time of exams, I didn’t take recharging seriously. Another fact is that I didn’t have the money to pay for it. Anyway, after two months of unlimited Internet usage, I am going to have a few days of no Internet. Hope I could get it recharged for GPRS before 20th so that I could use net during the Christmas holidays.No Comments | Read More...
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.
I recharged the mobile today morning itself to make the balance above RS 15. I got the settings for Mobile Office(The GPRS service from AirTel with which Internet can be accessed through a computer) during noon time. I downloaded some softwares from net with which the mobile screen can be used as a torch and flashlight and some others. Reaching home, I tried connecting net from computer. It was so simple and got connection, the first time itself. The speed is almost the same as dial-up connection through land line but can be used unlimited for a month.
I am going to connect net for the whole night today. Want to know what happens…!
