These day, after completing my graduation from MANIT Bhopal, I am in Muzaffarpur, my home town. Internet Connection in this small town is a big thing. Thanks to AirTel GPRS and my Motorola cellphone, now I have internet connection. Internet connection using AirTel GPRS is almost free, just you have to pay 250 per month in the form of talktime. There is unlimited internet access and unlimited download in this plan. So you don’t have to worry about your time limits while accessing the internet. The installation is very simple, just you have to follow 4-5 steps.
I am giving the process of installation of internet using AirTel GPRS.
Requirements :: A pc or labtop, a cell-phone with GPRS facility, a data cable to connect the cell-phone to labtop or pc if your cell-phone has bluetooth or infra-red facility then you don’t need datacable.
- First of all you have to call customer care (121) to activate your GPRS. It may take 2 or 3 days.
- After your connection is activated they send you some settings as per as your mobile phone, you have to enable those settings.
- Now install the driver of the data cable and connect your cell-phone to the pc or labtop.
- Just in the driver software you will get the internet settings options, enable those options and double click to start. you will have Connecting Device : Your mobile’s modem ISP Name : Airtel (or anything you like)Phone Number : *99***2# Username and Password : blank
- Connect to the dial-up account. You will be connected at 115.2 kbps (However it never happens).
Now you can access internet connection in your pc or laptop for a minimal amount. However the biggest problem with this connection is its slow speed. But this generally happens with any wireless connection. Also, the connectivity depends upon the AirTel Signal in your area.
