The Leopard and The Tata Indicom Plug and Surf thinggy; a story.
Well actually not much of a story. I got my hands on a "Tata Indicom Plug and Surf thinggy". This is really a Sungil cdma usb modem using Qualcomm's mobile station modem (MSM) chipset. Darwin groks the msm chipset alright.
So I plugged in the modem into the USB port, pulled up "System Preferences", selected "Networking", filled in the account details - which should be same for all tata subscribers i.e dial #777, creds are internet/internet. Then I went to the "Advanced" menu section and changed the "Vendor" and "Modem" from "Apple" and "Apple Modem v34" to "Generic" and "Dialup Device". Hitting "Connect" should now get you online.
ps: i am posting this over the "tata indicom thinggy"
