Setting up a working Dial-Up
Connection is usually easy, if on the condition that the concerned client knows or is informed of the Dial-Up Connection services by the “Service Provider” before She/he proceeds to set up his/her Dial-Up Connection. Otherwise, without the above prerequisites, setting up a Dial-Up Connection can become a hell of a task. The abovementioned Services that the Service Provider should provide for his/her client include:
1) Free of Charge – Internet Settings for Mobile
and PC. 2) Free of Charge – Manual Settings for Mobile and PC, if Via Network Installation fails. 3) Tariff Plans for Internet Usage. 4) Most important of all; guaranteed service. Quite some years before, Indian mobile network users purchased SIM (Subscriber Identification Module) mostly for talking purposes, but now a day Indian subscribers are going for two way usages i.e. for voice and Internet communication. Why not also,
since Dial-Up connections are quite cheap and provide sufficient utility for average Home users. Plus you usually don’t need to buy any extra devices. What you need is your GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) enabled Mobile phone with a Data Cable or a Blue Tooth connectivity option and a PC/Laptop, That’s all. This Document provides Technical Assistance/ Manual Help; for those mobile users who want to use Dial-Up Internet Services provided by their service providers but are unable to do so due to their Mobile Device Incompatibility issues, problems installing Internet settings in their Phone/PC etc.
LET’S GET STARTED
Before we get started, I advise you to install your mobile phones “Software CD” that is provided to you when you purchase the phone. For Nokia mobiles the software is known as “Nokia PC Suite”, for Motorola mobiles, “Motorola Phone Tools” for Samsung mobiles, “Samsung PC Studio” etc. These software CD’s are usually supplied inside the box in which your phone came, but if it is not supplied to you, then ask the retailer for that CD or download it, mostly free from www.softpedia.com . Do note that almost all the mobile phone companies provide Software CD’s for each of their respective phone models. [Don’t worry if you are unable get the software CD for your phone, you could create an internet connection directly without the CD, but this I shall explain later] 3
But it would be very easy for you, setting up your internet connection through the software CD. So try to acquire it first. After installing the Software CD, run the application and look for network setup wizard or an ICON that is named as CONNTECTION WIZARD, INTERNET CONNECTION, NETWORK CONNECTION, Dial-Up Connection or DATA CONNECION etc. Next, follow the instructions click finish then restart your PC, then connect to the internet by dialing the connection. This is the easy way to setup your Dial-Up Connection via the use of your phone’s software installed in your PC. Easy isn’t it..! But sometimes when you are in the process of creating a Dial-Up Connection, you may be asked by your PC to input certain Information that may include DNS (Domain Name Server), GPRS APN (Access Point), PORT Number and Dialing Number. What then. This is where this document comes to the rescue. The content of the document is divided into three parts; First Part: Deals with setting up dial-up connection using clients phones Software CD and the Second Part: deals with setting up dial-up connection without using clients phones Software CD, i.e. in case the client has failed to acquire the Software CD. The Third part: with Procedures after creating dial-up internet connection.
After installing the phones software CD, start the installed software by double clicking on the icon which is usually on the desktop. Now go to “Create internet connection or similar box and follow the instructions. If in case you are prompted to enter certain information depending on the software CD and the Service Provider for your SIM, here are those Information which is Service Provider Specific. i) User Name: You’re Name (A FAKE NAME recommended for security reasons).
Password: Give a pass word (Recommended).
GPRS APN/Access Point: For Airtel, Aircel, BSNL, Reliance, Hutch, Bpl and Idea. a) Airtel= www.airtelgprs.com b)Aircel= aircelweb c) BSNL= bsnlmms d)Reliance= smartnet e) Hutch= www f) Idea= internet g)Bpl= bplgprs.com
iv) Dial Up Number: for; 5
a) Airtel= *99***1# b)Aircel= *99*# or *99***1# or *99***3# c) BSNL= *99***1# d)Reliance= *99*1# e) Hutch= *99**1*1# f) Bpl= *99**1*1# g)Idea= *99**1*1#
iv) GPRS Port= Note that the GPRS PORT for almost all Service Providers in India is usually 8080 or 9401 or 9201.
The above Service Provider specific information should be enough to for you to create your own dial-up internet connection using your phone’s software CD. Further it is always advisable to input your User Name and a strong Pass Word for the Dial-Up Internet connection.
