[Tutorial] Configuring an Always On DataOne BB on gnu/Linux





desertwind
I see many asking help for configuring DataOne on their gnu/Linux machine on varous forums. Hence this Tutorial.

The router configuration is specific to Huawei SmartAX MT880 ADSL router.

System Configuration

Login as root.
Select System Settings > Network or system-config-network-gui on terminal.

You'll see your NIC listed there. Select it and click Edit.



Check Activate device when computer starts and Allow all users to enable and disable this device.

Select "Statically set IP addresses"

Enter the following values
Code:
Address       : 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask       : 255.255.255.0
Default gateway address   : 192.168.1.1




Press OK.

Press Activate.

open /etc/resolv.conf in your favourite text editor

Append the following lines.

Code:
nameserver 61.1.96.69
nameserver 61.1.96.71




Router Configuration

Now start your Web Browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press enter.

PS: Enable JavaScript in your browser, if not.

It will ask for username and password. Use admin as username and password.

Click on WAN Settings under Home in the left pane.

If not set, enter the following values

Code:
PVC No: PVC-0

Wan Type: PPP
Connection Type: PPPoE
VPI/VCI: 0 / 35
Default Route : Enabled

PPP

Username: yourusername
Password: yourpassword
Use DNS: Enabled
Max Idle Time: Always On




Click Apply
When asking for save and reboot, select No and Press OK.

Now click on DNS[b] under [b]Home on left pane.

If not set, enter the following values

Code:
DNS Status: Enabled
Primary DNS Address: 61.1.96.69
Secondary DNS Address: 61.1.96.71


Click Apply
When asking for save and reboot, select No and Press OK.

Now click on LAN Settings Under Advanced on left pane.

If not set, enter the following values

Code:
IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0


Click Apply
When asking for save and reboot, select Yes and Press OK.



The device will reboot now. It will take about a minute or more.



Do not refresh or close the browser window while rebooting. It's better leave your computer alone while this operation.

After the device has been rebooted, refresh the page. Now scroll down and you should see the green light for LAN and WAN (PVC-0)Channels.



Now click on Diagnostics under Status on left pane.

On Clicking Submit, it will do a series of tests. Important thing is that the result of first 3 under Modem Connection Test must be PASS. Don't care others.



Now, you're done. Your machine will be connected to the internet from next reboot onwards and will be always on. If you still prefer manual connect/disconnect, uncheck the Activate device when computer starts option from network configuration window. you can use the following commands

for connecting - ifup eth0
for disconnecting - ifdown eth0

provided the device name of your NIC is eth0.

You can create launchers on Desktop/Panel for the same.

Reboot your machine and Enjoy!!! [Don't forget Data caps]
