Crunchbang Linux Wvdial

After installing CrunchBang 8.04.2 and with no Wired LAN access, or Wifi,

I needed wvdial to get the Broadcom Firmware downloaded by Dialup.

HOWTO: Install wvdial to download and update Broadcom Wifi Firmware

to enable Wifi after HD install from CrunchBang LiveCD 8.04.2

FOR: CrunchBang Version 8.04.2

REQUIRED DEBS: wvdial & dependencies

(NOTE: Download path was found by running Synaptic and trying to

install wvdial)







Download the required files with another computer, and save on a USB Memory Stick,

then copy to the HD archive folder.....

sudo cp /media/CENTON?USB/crunchbang/archives/*.deb /var/cache/apt/archives

Open Synaptic and Install wvdial

Setup wvdial and detect the Modem with:

sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

Add your information to the configuration of wvdial, pap-secrets,

and chap-secrets :

sudo nano /etc/wvdial.conf

(NOTE: your /dev/ttyS0 is probably different and the last three

lines will need to be your login information, example follows)

[Dialer Defaults]

Auto DNS = yes

Init1 = ATZ

Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

Stupid Mode = yes

Modem Type = Analog Modem

Baud = 115200

New PPPD = yes

Modem = /dev/ttyS0

ISDN = 0

Phone = 3211234

Password = password

Username =

sudo nano /etc/ppp/pap-secrets

(NOTE: your login info must be inserted) * password

sudo nano /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

(NOTE: your login info must be inserted) * password

Dial and test with:


(NOTE: You will leave the Terminal window open during the session, and

when finished use CNTL C to terminate wvdial, then you can close the window.)

Wifi was enabled, and after connecting to a local Wifi router my Update was

completed by the Wifi connection......All 260 files.
