On several occasions I have been asked how to create a dial-up network connection with an MTX63 GPRS modem or an MTX-HC25 UMTS/ HSDPA modem. Sure it’s obvious for most of us, but not for people who are less accustomed to using modems (this is normal as nobody is born with this knowledge, but throughout my life I have met people who strangely seem to think otherwise…).

So for those of you who don’t know how to do it, here are the steps for how to create a dial-up network connection via USB for the MTX63 and MTX-HC25. Actually the following applies to any modem, either for the modems mentioned before, for the MTX65 or the MTX65+G or even mobiles if you can connect them via USB so that they act as a gprs or umts modem.

How to create a dial-up network connection with a GPRS/UMTS modem (with Windows XP):

2.-Click on the “Start” menu -> Connect to -> Show all connections
3.-Go on the left hand menu -> click on “Create a new connection”.
4.-Click on the button “Next”
5.-Select “Connect to the Internet”. Click the “Next” button.
6.-Select “Set up my Connection Manually”. Click the “Next” button.
7.-Select “Connect Using a Dial-Up Modem”. Click the “Next” button.
8.-Select the modem from the list (Siemens AG WM USM… or whatever is it). Click “Next”.
9.-Give the connection a name e.g. “SIEMENS Connection”. Click “Next”.
10.-Put *99***1# in the telephone number. Click “Next”.
11.- Select “Used by Anyone”. Click “Next”
12.-In the username put MOVISTAR, vodafone or CUSTOMER depending on whether it’s Telefónica, Vodafone or Orange respectively. You will have to consult other operators. In the password put MOVISTAR, Vodafone, AMENA depending on whether it’s Telefónica, Vodafone or Orange. You will have to consult other operators. Take care with the capital letters in the login and password. Click “Next”.
13.- Press the “Finish” button.
14.- Now open the Windows “Control Panel” -> Select System -> Hardware Tab –> Device Manager -> Select modem -> Right click Modem Properties (The Siemens/Cinterion one or the one that you are configuring) -> Advanced Options. In Additional Initialization Commands put:
If it’s Telefónica:
If it’s Vodafone:
If it’s Orange:
Press the Accept button.

15.-The button is now ready for the connection. Just double click on the network’s connection icon in network connections to start the connection.

I hope that is will help someone. ;)  

P.S. I am making some very important changes to the blog so sorry if you ever can’t read the posts properly, if the image isn’t in the centre or if there are problems with accents (I’m fighting with the UTF-8 and the ISO-8859-1). I hope that the changes will be positive in the end.

    Hola un saludo,configurado y funcionando perfectamente, con windows vista y telefono samsung l700. pero me surge una pregunta que no encuentro respuesta buceando por la red. ¿por que la secuencia de marcado es *lo que sea #, y no un mumero telefonico, esta secuencia podria ser el comando para arrancar el modem? de la misma forma que tecleamos comandos en el movil para otras funciones del tlf que son del tipo * lo que sea#, ejemplo mostrar imei en pantalla o desconectar contestador automatico?. Gracias por las posibles respuestas, un saludo.
