Tata Indicom USB Modem and Mac

by admin on July 18, 2008

Tata Indicom USB Data Modem (EpiValley)
I managed to configure it within 60 seconds on my PowerBook. It worked on the right hand side USB Port and NOT in the left hand side.
Upon insertion in the USB port, go to
System Preferences -> Network
The modem will be recognised as Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM
I configured it like this:
Create New Location : Tata Indicom
Under PPP Dialogue Box enter the following details:

Service Provider : Tata Indicom
Account Name : internet
Password : internet
Telephone Number : #777
Alternate Number : leave blank

check ‘save password’ to avoind annoying messages

Click PPP options: Check ‘Use TCP Header Compression’
Check ‘Use Verbose Logging’

leave all else unchecked say OK

Go to Modem tab
select ‘au CDMA 1x WIN W01K’ modem script from the drop down menu
Dialling : Tone
leave all else unchecked.

Open Internet Connect
Select Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM and connect
It should work immediately.To connect on Mac OSX Leopard (10.5.x) you can use the Modem Script: au by kddiNote: Get your USB Modem activated by the guys at the Tata Indicom Store. It needs activation before use. You wont be able to see data transferred etc, but it works fine. This Connection is incredibly slow. Recommended no-buy. 


dear sir ,
i am a nri i comes india once in a year . this time i am here and i am using tata indicom usb modem . this is so shame to say that such a big company of india your tata indicom shops dont have the software for usb modem . i lost this software before i was using the prepaid usb modem but when my balance finished i visited my nearest tata indicom shop to fill the balance .
accr. to them they dont know how to refill the balance . after that they told me that if i made it to postpaid then it will starts next day . today is 3rd day but i am still waiting for using internet as this caused me so much loss of my office work but your tata indicom shops are not supporting .

pls improve your services to be survive otherwise nobody is going to believe on you .

mr narayan, you are right. the service needs a lot of improvement. I have a tata indicom usb modem myself, but I prefer to use my GSM EDGE phone as a modem instead, as its more reliable and faster too…

I hope this discussion is still open…. Is it possible to check one’s remaining balance (pre-paid) when using the CDMA 1080? I am running Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro.
