Tata Indicom Data Card on Ubuntu

Got my Tata Indicom data (which is basically a Huawei E321) card to work my laptop running Ubuntu Edgy. It was fairly straightforward process, with ubuntu automatically doing most of the work. :)

1. After inserting the card, the modem got detected at /dev/ttyUSB0.
2. Ran

sudo wvdialconf
and it setup the default configuration
3. The I edited the /etc/wvdial.conf file to setup the Phone number, Username and password.
Phone = #777
Password = internet
Username = internet
4. Now run sudo wvdial R and that's it. After a series of debug messages, you should be connected to the internet.

Now I still need to figure how to get the signal strength of the network Iam in.

Time has a nice photo gallery on what families across the world eat. They have photos on 15 countries along with their weekly food expenditure, but unfortunately left out India.
