How to get the Tata indicom aircard/CDMA modem working in OS X

No need to use Windows! Plug the thing into your Mac — if you have HardwareGrowler it’ll tell you that you just plugged in an EpiValley USB Modem. Go to System Preferences, then to Network Connections. It should tell you that you just plugged in a new device and that when you’re ready you should hit Apply then Connect to make it go. Make a couple of changes first.

  1. Set your phone number to #777.
  2. Set your account name to internet.
  3. Set your password to internet.
  4. Go into Advanced and change your vendor to Generic and your model to Dialup Device.
  5. ???
  6. Profit.

These instruction work for my Tata Indicom Plug2Surf Whiz CDMA 1x USB Modem, but should be valid for most modems. Enjoy.
