GPRS Settings on WM 6.5

GPRS Settings on WM 6.5

Most of the time, i find many of my colleagues forgot how to configure the GPRS connectivity on WM 6.5. So I thought of putting the info on this blog

Steps to follow:

1.Click on Start Menu -> Settings ->Connections -> Connections

2.Under Task / My ISP, Click on Add a New Modem Connection

3. Leave the Name as it is , Under Select a Modem, choose Cellular Line (GPRS),

4. Click Next, Enter Access Point Name ( Get it from your Carrier)

5. Click Next, Enter User Name and Password ( Get it from your Carrier)

6. Domain Name; Check with your Carrier and enter if required

7. Then Click on Finish ( Mostly, there is no need for advanced settings.)

For Idea connection in Bangalore,The following are the settings we used.

AP Name: simplyinternet

User Name: Idea Mobile No

Password: spice

Domain: Empty

No Advanced settings
