These settings should be pretty much the same across any self-respected USB based HSDPA modem.
Assuming your computer can detect the modem and your Telkomsel/Simpati card is activated, go to modem’s profile menu and use these following values whenever required.
- Name: <anything>
- Number: *99#
- User Name: <leave the field empty>
- Password: <leave the field empty>
- APN / Access Point Name: ‘internet’
- Service type: packet
- PDP: choose ‘PPP’ (no idea what is this)
- Opt for getting DNS and IP automatically.
Tested on BandLuxe C180 (XL’s standard USB modem) & Sierra Wireless Compassâ„¢ 885 (Simpati’s standard USB modem)
Tips: When using BandLuxe C180, in order to force modem to use UMTS instead of stupid GPRS, go to Settings->Radio->3G/3.5G only
Tips: Just throw XL’s prepaid mobile broadband. It is soo expensive for GPRS based service (Rp 199K/mo) and … its a freaking GPRS! (not that 3G is super fast)
UPDATE: if you are using telkomsel/simpati unlimited do not forget to SMS to 3636 “UL 100K” or “UL 50K” followed by “YA” to activate your unlimited internet for 30 and 15 days
