So, I typed lsusb and found the system identifies the dongle Huawei e156G as "Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E220 HSDPA Modem / E270 HSDPA/HSUPA Modem". Then I restarted my PC with Windows XP , plugged my Huawei e156G dongle and searched the internet to know "How to connect Huawei e156G with Linux?".
Normally I don't like to use windows XP in my PC because "I love Linux". But if I need to use my dongle on Linux, I have to get some help from M$ to download the packages. I don't hesitate to get some help from another O/S when I needed.
After few searches I found a link to OpenSuse website to another site.(http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:HUAWEI_E220_Support). Then I downloaded huawei.tar.bz2 from the site http://oozie.fm.interia.pl/pro/huawei-e220/ and decompressed it using the terminal and installed that package to my system.
tar -xjvf huawei.tar.bz2
[password] ( [password] = your password for the root )
when the dongle is connected to a USB port , system will identify the USB dongle at /dev/ttyUSB0
then you could edit the wvdial-huawei.conf file which is in the /etc/
( path : /etc/wvdial-huawei.conf )
no need to edit whole file. It's enough to edit Phone , username , password fields to work with some ISPs. check your ISP for phone number which is needed to dial to connect and username , password also.
then you could surf the internet using the wvdial command.
you can try this with different distros and distributions.
