Roberto Piola and Qtek
Using the Qtek with linuxThere is a little caveat: on the Qtek, you must disable connection authentication (you can leave connection authorization on). Of course, you should have a working bluetooth stack.
First, the script for connecting the bluetooth deviceThis script must be run first: it attempts to select the rfcomm port corresponding to the bluetooth modem, and binds to it. then, it waits for a Ctrl-C for disconnecting the port. run it and then minimize the window
Then, the dialerAfter the bluetooth connection has been established, you should run the ppp dialer. I use wvdial: simply create the following /etc/wvdial.conf file:
by replacing "ibox.tim.it" with the name of your access point. IMPORTANT: edit it every time by replacing /dev/rfcomm1 with the name of the rfcomm port that is bound by the previous script: the qtek uses a variable channel for dial-up networking!
Run wvdial and get connected!
CreditsIn order to get it working, I found some useful info on Integra web site.
Open issuesNow, it appears that my TomTom Rider is unable to use the Qtek for dialing into the net, but the TomTom has linux inside... I should take a look at that.
Using the Qtek 9090 with Windows VistaFirst, pair the qtek with your PC by clicking on Network and Shaing Center... Bluetooth Devices... Add
Vista should add a new modem, amongst other things...
Then, correct modem options by clicking on Control panel... Phone and modem options... Modems... Standard modem over Bluetooth link (the newly added modem)... Properties... Change settings (it will ask for administration permissions)... Modem tab... Disable "Wait for dial tone before dialing"... Advanced tab... insert +CGDCONT=1,"IP","ibox.tim.it" into the "Extra initialization commands" box; replace ibox.tim.it with your APN name.
Then, try to set-up a dial up connection: Network and Shaing Center... Set up a connection or network... Set up a dial-up connection... select "Standard Modem over Bluetooth Link", use *99# as the phone number, lease username and password blank and go on.
