Fedora Networking :: F12 Dialup Modem Not Working / Fix It?
Nov 26, 2009
I have F9, F10, F11 and F12 installed along with WinXP on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet thru 56K dialup modem (USR-5610B). The earlier versions of Fedora, F9, F10 and F11, all can connect via dialup modem.
My F12 installation is augmented with the following rpms - kudzu-184.108.40.206.i686, libwvstreams-4.6-5.fc12.i686 and wvdial-1.60.10.fc12.i686 (and the rpm for USR-5610B modem)
Network Configuration GUI shows ppp0 (Modem) in the Common Active Profile
However, ppp0 does NOT show up in the Network Device Control GUI, AND ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE buttons are GREYED-OUT.
I had started another thread about this but had a terrible subject line. Others may have this issue.Found the answer deep in the bowels of documentation. My question now is " did version 20 mess this up for everyone with dialup"?
I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static 192.168.2.2) to a router (the router is 192.168.2.1) where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop (192.168.2.3). I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.
Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop (192.168.2.3) is successfully connecting to the router (192.168.2.1) as I can see the router configuration page when I type http://192.168.2.1 into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.
My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway (192.168.2.2) to the router (192.168.2.1), Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.
Code: lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com PING www.l.google.com (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms
What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
i'm running Kubuntu karmic and i've been using a 3G Huawei E1552 modem to connect to the internet, everything was going well when suddenly my modem stopped working. I've tried reconfiguring everything, i even reinstalled kubuntu from scratch with no success.Here's a part of my /var/log/debug

I have a creative modem blaster V.92 which I know works because I have used it on windows and ubuntu how ever I am having some problems with F11 it sounds like its dialing okay and the box pops up that says please wait when I try to connect via the network manager thing but thats all it does the box never goes away and I've looked at the modem lights thing I added to my panel and it says its not sending or receiving anything and firefox doesnt work so I am not sure what I am doing wrong here.
I got an error with the default settings so I switched the device to ttys0 and set the baudrate according to what wvdialconf said was okay which also wont connect for some reason it hangs too.. I am confused here. Has anyone successfully set up a dial up connection in fedora 11
I have bought a so-called web'n'walk stick, which identifies itself as a "Globetrotter HSDPA Model". I managed to get it identified as a serial device (initially, it is detected as a USB drive), but I fail to get it working.
Im using usb wimax modem for qubee. its web address is [URL]
in terninal after giving the lsusb command i get the following output
sanjoy@ubuntu:~$ lsusb Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
after that I give dmesg>output.text so a text file I goet which is attached. output.zip
Imagine this scenario at my home: I'm working on my laptop using WLAN receiver as I have a router installed at my home. Suddenly the electricity fails (it's a regular incident here in Bangladesh called Load-shedding) and the power source to modem and router dies.As a result, my internet connection drops. To connect to the internet without power, I use this QUBEE UH-235 WiMAX USB Modem. Now I know QUBEE may not be there in your country. But after a bit of research I figured that this UH-235 modem is commont every country. QUBEE just branded its logo on the device and the software within.This one is not my device, mine is here.
In my windows, the software is installed as soon as I plug in the USB. That software then detects the modem, scans for network, and then connects to the internet. No extra CD is required for this. However, on an Ubuntu machine, I can't get it working. I guess there are ways to get this UH-235 modem working on my Ubuntu machine. This is keeping me from using Ubuntu as you know I'll have to restart and log in to WIndows whenever electricity is off as Ubuntu works with Wi-Fi, not this UH-235 modem when the Wi-Fi is out of power
I have received a new huawei k3770 usb modem but ubuntu 11.04 (32 bit) picks it up as a cd rom but not as a modem. Modeswitch is installed and I have reinstalled it as well. I have googled it but I found nothing.
I installed Cent OS 5 in my computer system. I use GPRS modem for browsing the net. I use my cell phone as a modem. The problem is that when I connect the phone modem to the system the computer gets turn off. And it does not start again until I disconnect the usb cable of the phone.how to use a GPRS modem in Cent OS 5?
I just can't seem to get this thing going. I've also tried Gnome-ppp. Press detect and it says "no modem installed" I did install it in Windows as well to make sure the darn thing actually works. It did perfectly.
Your US Robotics modem attached at /dev/ttyACM0 >>> The problemt: wvdial for some reason cannot use it
I had to edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file with gksudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
john@ubuntu:~$ sudo wvdial [sudo] password for john: --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60 --> Cannot get information for serial port
This is really weird, and I would like just this question answered: I've spent like 2 hours by plugging, unplugging, rebooting, and doing everything I could, but the modem wasn't working. When I did ls /dev/ttyU* it was showing up a list of 6 usb devices.
Code: /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/ttyUSB2 /dev/ttyUSB3 /dev/ttyUSB4 /dev/ttyUSB5 And when I sent the command wvdialconf after looking into all the devices, it didn't recognize any modem.
The thing is, that by the time I was writing here for a solution, I disconnected the modem, and when I reconnected it I did a ls /dev/ttyU* just to copypaste the info, and Voil! there were just 2 devices, and wvdialconf worked out just fine! I would like to know what I was doing wrong, so I make sure it won't happen again.
I have a ZTE USM Modem from 3 Tre Italy, on the tre.it network. The modem worked fine for a month or so. Yesterday I recharged the SIM and the modem has stopped working after midnight. Earlier, the modem would indicate a red light, and then turn to green, blink a few times, and connect on its own.
Now, it shows red, goes off, and then stays red constantly. I've tried putting the priginal PIN that came with the SIM into my Mobile Broadband settings in Network Manager to no avail.
I recently received my Ubuntu 9.10 CD, Kubuntu 9.10CD and Server Edition. I was recommended to do so by a friend because my computer Running on Windows Vista Home Basic with 512MB RAM has been extremely, unbearably slow for the last month or so I got the CD's yesterday and I ran the Ubuntu CD and everything was fine, I rebooted the Computer and it started up! It was great!! Really quick and responsive and easy to use and i LOVE it's features...
My only problem is my Broadband. I live in Ireland and I have my broadband with o2, it's quick and sufficient for my needs. I have a Huawei E270 usb modem (It's wireless broadband). And it wouldn't Work. I plugged it into my pc with Ubuntu up and running and it opened the File for o2 rather than the Interface for it. When I plugged the modem in there was a green lock symbol on the top right of the screen. Is Ubuntu even compatible with the E270 modem?
I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.
I installed ubuntu 10.04 in my desktop, was working fine. connecting to the internet through linksys router. now my internet is not working, because i removed the linksys router and connected directly from the internet provider modem, Motorola sbv5222 broadband modem. Now my internet is not working.
after yesterday's routine ubuntu update - allowing both security and recommended updates - i turned off my pc. turning it on today, it seems like my USB modem support is gone. i am using the "eciadsl-usermode_0.12-1_i386" package, and i get the message "/proc/bus/usb/devices: No such file or directory".i tried re-installing my eciadsl package, but got the same result.
Been trying to get my UML 290 (4g) modem to work under Fedora 15. I have tried to use networkmanager, wvdial and ppp guides onhtml. I am at my wits end trying to get this to work!I am beginning to think that Fedora doesn't recognize it at all.
I'm using fedora core-8. I need to setup dialup server to accept dial up connection.Dial up server shoudl also allocate ip address to client (trying to connect using modem)If some one knows how to do this, please let me know.I'm trying to achieve peer to peer communication between two computers connected using modem on both side over PSTN line.
I have installed the KDE spin and am liking it so far. Except for the fact that I cannot get onto the internet. I rely on this ZTE USB wireless modem for internet and that just would not get recognized in Fedora. Plus, my Windows installation is down and I would love to keep it that way if at all possible.
I have followed a few instructions on this particular problem. I have modified the menu.lst file to account for the usbmodserial and product. The usb_modeswitch program has also been installed and the usb_modeswitch.conf file has been edited with the values I got from the 'lsusb' command's output.
But the curious thing is that when I actually execute the usb_modeswitch command, I get a message saying that there are no drivers for the ZTE device. Which means that I cannot go onto the wvdialconf part of it at all. Basically at this point I dont have a modem, according to Fedora. But it does get recognized as a ZTE device. That tells me that there is something right about what I have done so far and may only need to do a few tweaks here and there.
PS - I am based out of India and this is a Tata Indicom Photon (NOT Photon Plus) connection for which I have a USB device which acts as a modem.
