Debian Hardware :: Insufficient Privileges For Mobile Broadband Dongle

Dec 9, 2014

I've just installed Debian 7.6.0 with KDE onto my laptop and now I want to connect to the internet with my Mobile Broadband dongle. When it's plugged in, I follow the icon in the taskbar to the Network Connections window.

Then I try to add a MBB instance with the pop-up assistant. After I've answered all the questions another pop-up tells me:-

"Insufficient privileges"

What's going wrong here and how do I get Debian to work the dongle (which works on my Desktop Debian 7.5.0 that uses Gnome)?

Debian :: Does Squeezy Allows Out Of The Box Work For Huwai Dongle/ Mobile Broadband?

May 29, 2010

1) does squeezy allows out of the box work for huwai dongle/ mobile broadband? (i never was able to configure mobile broadband in lenny thus i couldn't have kept lenny in my pc for more than 3 hours)

2) if i install squeezy (which status is 'testing' at the time being), do i need to reinstall squeezy once it becomes 'stable'?

3) any major difference between squeezy/debian and ubuntu?

Debian Configuration :: Mobile Broadband Dongle No Longer Ejecting "zero CD"

Jan 18, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer AspireOne yesterday, and was delighted to see that my ZTE MF627 broadband dongle (from 3 UK) appeared to work "out of the box". I wasn't able to connect due to lack of signal, but the behaviour was as I expected. (The dongle is one with a "zero CD" that needs to be ejected before the modem itself can be accessed. Recent versions of udev are supposed to do this automagically.)

However, when I tried to use the dongle today, I was unable to make it work. It appears that udev is no longer ejecting the zero CD when it is inserted, but is instead detecting the modem as a (non-functioning) serial port.

Here is the output from /var/log/syslog for the "successful" attempt. Note the disconnection at 4769.479857 which is followed by reconnection as a different device:

Jan 16 14:11:30 john-netbook kernel: [ 4759.175449] usb 1-2: Product: ZTE CDMA Technologies MSM

Fedora Networking :: Mobile Broadband Dongle Restarts Itself?

Sep 5, 2011

I few days ago I bought a mobile broadband, with dongle model Huawei e1820. I have no problem connecting to the internet. The settings in network manager are correct. But when I use the modem with high traffic for a while, like streaming, the speed gets slower and slower until finally the modem shuts down and restarts itself. After the modem restarts, it connects to the internet again, but now the speed is terrible. And if i continue using high traffic it will restart itself in a matter of minutes. But if I plug it out and don't use it for a while, the speed is back to "acceptable". For a while...

I'm using fedora 15, and have also tried it on Ubuntu Natty with the same result. Reinstalled usb_modeswitch. configured usb_modeswitch with all the guides on the web. No results.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing 3G Mobile Broadband Dongle Over Wireless

Jan 18, 2011

I had previously been sharing my ethernet connection over wireless using Hostapd & dnsmasq on my headless server as this tutorial shows: here which had been working fine. I now wish to share my USB mobile broadband over the wireless. I using a ZTE MF112. I was able to get the connection working using the application wvdial.
- Firstly I had to create a hard link between /dev/gsmodem & /dev/modem
- wvdial then made a new connection ppp0 which would work for internet access.

Changing the interfaces to have the br0 port like so:
Code:
iface br0 inet static
address 192.168.1.1
network 192.168.1.0
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
bridge-ports eth1 ppp0 wlan0
Flushing the IPTables & then adding:

Code:
iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -s 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp0 -d 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE

Doing so works fine, but I'm not entirely sure how to make this all automated. I could try making a script to launch, but I don't have a huge amount of experience writing scripts. Is wvdial the best application to use? Keeping in mind I'm using a headless server. I use Squeezebox server & the scrobbling didn't seem to be able to connect to last.fm. Do I need to specify which connection Squeezebox uses?

Networking :: Wireless Network After Installation Of Mobile Broadband Dongle

Jun 28, 2011

I have a Acer Aspire running dual boot Ubuntu 9.10 and Vista. Although it has an Atheros wireless card (AR5001 according to linux, AR5007 according to Vista) until recently I didn't have any apparent problems with it.I installed a ZTE MF112 Mobile Broadband Dongle. Now I am experiencing great difficulty in communicating with my wireless router (with both LAN and WAN traffic). Connecting to the network in the first place appears to happen quite smoothly and my computer obtains a DHCP IP address. However the ping response times are measurable in seconds rather than the milliseconds I would expect, and any traffic across the network crawls, or just times out and fails.

I do not believe it is the router at fault as two laptops, both also with Ubuntu, can connect to it fine and swapping it out for another router does not fix the problem either. Also there is no problem connecting from Vista.I suspect that installing the dongle has altered something which has made the bugs in the wireless card/drivers apparent and that's where I need some help.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vodafone ( Huawei K3520 ) Mobile Broadband Dongle?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm new here. This is my first post. Something tells me my problem will be met with great sighs and shrugs of shoulders. I think you may have heard this problem just a few thousand times. couple of days ago i took the plunge and installed Ubuntu 9.10. I already run XP Pro. I have the system set for dual booting until i get to grips with Linux and have all that i use daily from software to hardware comprehesively installed and running. then i have this ideal romantic dream of dumping my microsoft heartache, and living a happy life with the new love in town (an OS that works!)

Vodafone (Huawei K3520) mobile broadband dongle. Yes i know its a touchy subject but i am going cross-eyed reading info on various forums from this one to the betavine forums and a detour through vodafone themselves. I just can't find clear concise info on how to get this dongle up and running with Ubuntu. My laptop is Acer Aspire 5633 WLMi. I would really really appreciate your help on this subject i need to get online with this dongle and Ubuntu.

Debian :: Mobile Broadband On Squeeze ?

Aug 7, 2011

I have an Asus K50IJ laptop and everything works great, but now I'm moving house and need to switch to a mobile broadband dongle. From what I can tell the major providers here in the UK don't support Linux, so I'm hoping someone can help me with the question of mobile broadband on debian and what does and doesn't work by default. I'm happy to get my hands dirty and keep learning about linux and debian, but I'm definitely still a beginner in both. I couldn't find what I needed searching the man pages, wiki or forum, but point in me in the right direction if you think I've missed something useful. Ideally I'd like to use Virgin Mobile so I've asked them for specs on the dongle they supply and I'll post that info when I get it. Any help would really be appreciated as I rely on the internet pretty heavily.

Debian :: Android Tethering / Wired Changes To Mobile Broadband

Aug 27, 2015

I am trying to tether internet from my LG Leon to a new debian 8.1 install so i can install network drivers but i keep getting disconnected.After activating the tethering, it works fine, and appears as a "wired" connection in Network, after a minute it will always change from wired to "Mobile Broadband" and asks me to select my "Network". (Then the internet doesn't work until tethering is reset.) Is there any way i can stop debian from doing this? The silly thing the internet works perfectly until it shifts it like this.

Debian :: Xfce Desktop - Mobile Broadband Not Recognized

Sep 21, 2015

Booting debian with xfce desktop (8.2, amd64) using a live cd of iso hybrid. While a wired network can be easily connected using network manager, it fails to recognize the mobile broadband (I am using a USB dongle). The network manager gui disappears after I select `Mobile Broadband'. Moreover, Code: Select allnmcli -p con does not recognize the gsm connection, but Code: Select allnmcli dev status returns that a USB gsm connection is present at ttyUSB3.

Debian Configuration :: Mobile Broadband Disappears When Disconnect?

Apr 11, 2011

I have a fresh install of squeeze without a desktop environment. I then installed a basic gnome environment so I can choose my own apps ('apt-get install gdm3' pulls in enough for that). I then had to install some packages to get mobile broadband working:It all works fine until I disconnect it via Gnome network manager. I cannot reconnect using Gnome network manager because it doesn't show in the menu, but it does show while I'm connected. If I pull the dongle out and plug it in again, it reconnects without issue.I think I may be missing some packages, but I don't know what. I tried usb-modeswitch, but no change
