Aircel customers can now connect to the internet and browse using the
Aricel mobile connection. I am a Aircel Tamilnadu, prepaid subscriber
and my GPRS has been activated. There are now two attractive offers to
internet subscription. Rs. 14 ERC gives 3 days of unlimited inernet.
Rs. 98 ERC gives one month full unlimited internet. Once the GPRS is
activated you can browse through your mobile.
You want to browse in your Computer via GPRS? You can connect your
mobile to pc VIA Data cable / Bluetooth. In either case you need to
install modem for you phone.
Your phone CD will provide installation setup. For example my Motorolla
w388 doesnot have a setup program. They have given Drivers files in
phone memory. Once i connect the Data cable the phone asks whether it
should be connected as storage device. If you click yes, it will add a
removable storage like e:, f:, or g:. If you click No it will be
connected as modem.
Then i need to install modem using control panel. I don't auto detect
the modem. I install standard 28Kbps modem on the available com port.
Now create a Network connection:
We need to create Dial-up network connection in windows to connect to
aircel GPRS. Again go to control panel -> Network connections. Click
'Create New Network connection'.
Select Connect to internet and click Next.
Select Setup my connection Manually click Next
Select Connect Using a Dial-up Modem click Next
Select You Phone modem click Next
Provide ISP Name (For example: aircel) click Next
Enter the phone number *99***1# (for Aircel) Click Next
Leave username and password blank click Next
Now open the new dial-up connection and click Dial.
You should now connect to internet via aircel GPRS
For some phones extra initialization commands are required.
My model was Motorola w388. I successfully installed modem and when i
connect i got Error 734: PPP Link Protocol terminated.
When i called the customer care they gave me the solution. He asked me
to enter the following initialization command in Modem Properties ->
The speed i get was 38.4 kbps. This is below dial-up standards and
todays webpages require more bandwidth than the dial-up days. This is
and alternate to regular internet connection and used in emergencies
when you broadband connection / ISP is down.
Airtel offered GPRS many years ago and its technology is
evolved/matured comparig aircel GPRS. Still the speed is limited by the
GPRS technology. We hope 3G will completely replace GPRS in coming
For any assistance/help installing Aircel/Airtel GPRS Call 98422 84426.
i am glad to help you.
