Hi Folks,

I successfully used wvdial to connect the internet using my
- Huawei E3131 usb stick (modem) with an
- Afrihost data sim on my
- Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) system
as follows

  1. Install the Linux drivers on the Huawei USB stick, from bash
    hamish@hamish-pc: /media/hamish/Mobile Partner/Linux$ sudo bash install
  2. install wvdial, on Debian like system
    hamish@hamish-pc: ~/ sudo apt-get install wvdial
  3. configure wvdial,
    - hamish@hamish-pc: ~/ sudo wvdialconf,
    as discussed on http://support.real-time.com/linux/dialup/wvdial.html
    - change the following parameters
    Phone = *99#
    Username = none
    Password = none
    Baud = 3600000
  4. run wvdial
    hamish@hamish-pc: ~/ sudo wvdial


That worked for me. (strangely i did not need to specify the afrihost APN)

On my Raspberry Pi Zero, with a K4605 modem, instead of "none" for user name and password I used "{ }" space between braces required - also did not need to use the APN - Afrihost ...
