Connecting PC/Laptop to Internet With Mobilink GPRS – Step by Step Setting

In this tutorial we will learn how to connect our PC / Laptop with internet using Mobilink’s GPRS. This method can be used for any handset (Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Blackberry etc) and for both Prepaid Jazz and Postpaid Indigo Number. So let’s start straight away.

Note: I will bring tutorials for Ufone, Telenor, Zong and Warid Too, in coming couple of Weeks…!

Getting Ready

You must be equipped with following items, in order to connect your PC or Laptop with Mobilink’s GPRS

  1. Make sure that you have device drivers of your phone. Otherwise you won’t be able to connect your PC/Laptop with internet. This driver can be found in a CD that comes with your handset’s pack. Make sure that you have installed the handset driver on your PC (Please ask help in comments below if you having problems with driver installation, but remember, i will not provide any driver for any handset)
  2. Assuming that your Handset driver is installed on your PC, now make sure that your GPRS is activated on your Mobilink Jazz/Indigo numbers. If not then call your helpline and get it activated.
  3. Please remember that connecting to internet through PC consumes high bandwidth, so make sure that you have unlimited GPRS package activated on your Mobilink Indigo Numbers (that comes at Rs. 500 per month). Mobilink Jazz Customers note that you will be charges at Rs. 15 per MB, so be carefull while your are using GPRS on your Jazz Numbers

Okay seems, now you have all necessary things with you in order to connect internet on PC/Laptop with help of Mobilink GPRS. So keep on reading to complete the tutorial.

(Hey, don’t ask me that i didn’t mention handset, mobilink connection and a PC or Laptop; yea these are must have things, i know you are not dumb)
Step 1: Configuring your Phone Modem to use Internet: Go to the Control Panel and Double click Phone and Modem OptionsOnce you double click on modems, Following window will appear..

  1. Click on the Modems Tab on the top.
  2. You will see a list of modems installed in your PC 3.
  3. Select the “GSM” phone Modem and click on properties (don’t worry if you see a different set of modems on this window. like you can have Samsung GSM Modem, Blackberry, Sony Ericsson W200 GSM etc.. the idea is to select your GSM modem for whatever phone you are using)
  4. Now click on the Advanced Tab on the top.

Here you will see following Window

  1. In the Extra initialization command field write the following string
  2. After adding the command please Click ok and ok again.

String:

For Jazz: AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,“jazzconnect.mobilinkworld.com”

Note: Please note that don’t omit or add any spaces, commas, quotes or anything. Copy this string as it is

Now Press on Okay, save and close all windows

Step 2: Creating Dialup Connection

Now Again go into Control Panel, and make a new Dialup Connection , by clicking on “Network Connections button”.
