    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
      [email protected]: /media/hamish/Mobile Partner/Linux$ sudo bash install
    2. install wvdial, on Debian like system
      [email protected]: ~/ sudo apt-get install wvdial
    3. configure wvdial,
      - [email protected]: ~/ sudo wvdialconf,
      as discussed on
      - change the following parameters
      Phone = *99#
      Username = none
      Password = none
      Baud = 3600000
    4. run wvdial
      [email protected]: ~/ 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 ...
