Connecting AriaNet (or ReberQuick) to your Ubuntu box

Hello friends,

When I was back home (9 months ago), most of you asked me about the possibility of accessing Internet using AriaNet or ReberQuick. Unfortunately, by then I had no clear answer, what I could do, was sending this post.

The good news, I recently found a rather easy way to connect to such connection plans (so called, mobile broadband), the following screenshots show the steps of activating the connection. To let you know, I am using the latest version of Ubuntu 10.10:

Note: click on the photos to see them in a better size.

1- First connect your device to your computer.
2- Go to the Network applet, right click on it and select (Edit Connections).

3- Click on the Mobile Broadband tab.

4- Click on forward.

5- Select Iraq, and click forward.

 6- Select (I can't find my provider, and I wish to enter it manually), then write the name of your provider (either Arianet or Reber Quick), then click forward.

7- Now, click on Apply and you are almost done :)

8- Enter your username and password, then click on Apply.

9- Now your connection is ready, and you can simply select it by clicking on your Network applet.

I think, this is a really easy way to configure it, unfortunately, I didn't have access to any mobile broadband device, so I cannot guarantee that this will work, but you can give it a try, and write me feedback on it.

Happy Internet connection :)
