root@darkstar:/# installpkg wvstreams-4.6-x86_64-1ponce.txz

Edit /etc/wvdial.conf as follow

root@darkstar:/# nano /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = AT+CPIN=****
Init2 = AT^SYSCFG=14,2,3FFFFFFF,2,4
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”indosatm2″

Restar rc.udev service

After it connected we need to write the dns applied by im2
root@darkstar:/#nano /etc/resolv.conf

Restart the network (if necessary)
root@darkstar:/#/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart

Next time you connect to im2, just execute  wvdial in the terminal.
