Connect to People.net (Ukraine)

Let's go through the tune-up procedure of CDMA-modem Novatel U760 for People.net connection.

1. Go to the net settings interface by Network→Interfaces path. Push “Add new interface” button.

2. Set “3G” as the interface's name. Select “UMTS/GPRS/EV-DO” protocol type. Push “Submit”.

3. Select following options:

  • Protocol: UMTS/GPRS/EV-DO
  • Modem device: /dev/ttyUSB1 (device number ttyUSB1/2/3/4/… depends on USB-devices quantity in the system and particular modem - should be selected experimentally)
  • Service Type: CDMA/EV-DO
  • APN: #777
  • PIN: 0000
  • PAP/CHAP username: 8092xxxxxxx@people.net.ua (instead of 8092xxxxxxx put phone number)
  • PAP/CHAP password: 000000

4. If VPN is used, it's necessary to set main gateway metric. It should be less than VPN's one.

5. In the Firewall settings, specify a WAN zone to exclude incoming connections from the Internet. Usually, they are not needed and bring additional security risks.

6. Click “Save and apply”. The settings will be applied. If everything is done correctly, on the Network→ Interfaces page you will see a new “3G” interface with the connection installed.

7. To check the connection to the Internet, go to the Network→ Diagnostics page and click the Traceroute button. If the Internet connection works correctly, you will see the package path to the specified server (by default openwrt.org).
