I use a 6610i to connect my laptop to internet but use infrared (irda),
no cable. For connection to internet you don't need gnokii.

Steps to take:

1 - make sure you can connect to the internet with your phone, can you
for instance get the home-page of the provider on your phone. Your
provider can tell you how this is done.

2 - on my laptop I use the command "/usr/sbin/pppd call provider"

and in /etc/ppp/peers there is a file "provider" with as main commands
the following:

modem crtscts defaultroute

connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v TIMEOUT 30 ABORT BUSY ABORT ERROR ABORT\

It works just like a dial-up connection with a normal phone, the only
special thing is the dial-string "ATD*99***1#"

If your cable is ok you can use that in the same way.

Those are the main things, you might have to play around a bit with
other parameters for pppd, but the log files will help you with that.
You could also use kppp for instance instead of using pppd directly, but
I have never used kppp, so can't help you with that.
