I managed to connect to the Internet using wvdial, however I am getting hardly exciting download speeds around 50 kB/s. I was really hoping to get somewhere around 150 - 300 kB/s. Hence my question: how can I "debug" the connection in Linux, i.e. What is the signal strength and if it managed to connect using 3G or only GSM?
I am using Huawei e272 usb modem (branded Vodafone, I am connecting to Virgin though). My wvdial.conf file:
[Dialer Defaults] Phone = *99***1# Username = user Password = " " Stupid Mode = 1 Dial Command = ATDT [Dialer hsdpa] Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 Baud = 460800 Init2 = ATZ Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 ISDN = 0 Modem Type = Analog Modem
