OpenSUSE Network :: Cricket A600 USB Broadband Modem Install?

May 13, 2009

I recently got one of these modems and it had discovered very serious detection problems. I had been using one of the Cricket PCMCIA modems but it had a problem of dropping connections every 30 seconds or so. Anyway, this modem works a lot better but there is a trick to get it working.

Since the modem has a built-in flash card reader and flash memory containing the Windows software, when you first plug the device in, it is detected by the OS as a flash drive rather than a modem. If you try to configure the modem at this point, it will be impossible since no modem will have yet been detected.

In order to get the device to be detected as a modem, it needs to be "flipped". The following thread from the Ubuntu forums discusses the details of the problem and contains a link to a utility to "flip" the device: [ubuntu] HOWTO: Cricket Wireless A600 Broadband Modem - Ubuntu Forums

Once the device is flipped, I configured it using YAST / Network Devices / Modems. Mine is detected as /dev/tty/ACM0. I use Kinternet to connect, though Network Manager may also work, but I have not yet tested it.

General :: Network Manager - Cricket Broadband Is Down After Installing Wicd ?

Mar 2, 2010

I have a dell insp 1545 windows7-ubuntu9.10 dual boot. the linux os would not activate the wireless network function in the network manager (but the cricket broadband was being detected and was in fact active). well, i did a little looking around and found another network mgr (wicd?, i think it's called... or something like that) and installed it. IT is working, but now the cricket broadband is down, which is my mainstay internet connection right now. i'm thinking that maybe it's got something to do w/the function but that's just a wild guess.

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 - 3G USB Broadband Modem Keeps Disconnecting

Jan 23, 2010

I am running a 3-G wireless USB broadband modem, and connecting with Network Manager, but I keep getting disconnected when idle after 5-6 minutes. I am used to using Kinternet to connect with my 3-G wireless USB broadband modem, and setting it up in Yast / Network / Modems, but was not able to configure my modem there (for some mysterious reason) so ended up using Network Manager instead.

What's going on here regarding YAST being unable to configure my modem (even when Network Manger is disabled). But my main problem at this point is that my connection times out after about 6 minutes if I'm idle. This is a big problem for me because I type slow and frequently get disconnected while posting on message boards. Where are the idle time out settings are for Network Manager? I can't seem to find them.

OpenSUSE Network :: Mobile Broadband Globetrotter HSDPA Modem ?

Sep 10, 2010

I have this usb stick:

The problem is that I have no clue what information I am supposed to give when configuring it through KNetwork manager. The password is disabled and I think the username should be telenor which is my ISP, the other info lines in KNetwork manager, however, I am very uncertain of, and I can't seem to get it working. I have switched from traditional setup with ifup to user controlled through Network Manager and the modem is detected. The module option seems to be loaded and the 'mode' of the stick seems also to be correct, it is not detected as a storage device at least.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vodafone Mobile Broadband (k3806-z) Modem Not Listed By Network Manager

Feb 4, 2011

I have a k3806-z vodafone mobile broadband modem, on ubuntu 10.04. I have added the mobile broadband connection with the network manager wizard. But network manager does not list my connection. I installed usb-modeswitch and usb-modeswitch-data. Still nothing. The disc utility tells me it recognises the modem as a cd drive and a storage device. Evidently usb-modeswitch is not working.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: CDMA Mobile Broadband USB Modem Manager Program

Apr 10, 2010

I'm using a '' D-50 (CDMA EV-DO rev A) mobile broadband USB modem, also sold as Cmotech CNU-680 in other areas. The modem is connected to a USB port on a hp8710w mobile workstation.

As the 11.2 Gnome Network Manager won't connect this modem to Internet (see my first post here), I have downloaded and installed a 'D50 Modem Manager program' from [url]

After unpacking and installing this cmotech-qtmodem-1.6-1.i586.rpm package for suse on 11.2 x86_64, the gui application 'D-50 Modem Manager' is found in the Internet Group.

However, neither this program does connect the D-50 modem really on 11.2 x86_64 (as it did on 11.1 x86_64). Tried both traditional network setup and with Network Manager.

Any idea and suggestion how to trobleshoot this further? I think I've seen that a newer version cmotech-qtmodem 1.9 has been mentioned on the web, but without being able to find and download this version.

Command output as follows:

As normal user:

On the Modem Manager gui: D-50 modem is ready

From Login script Debug window:

As root:

It seemed like the modem connected, but Firefox was not able to connect afterwards (Server not found)

OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Install USB Modem Device For Internet Connection / Way To Do

Feb 14, 2010

I recently installed Open SUSE 11.2. It's a pretty cool OS. Anyway,sadly enough, I cannot access my internet connection via my USB internet modem. Worst of all, Open SUSE cannot detect the USB modem device. I am currently new to Linux and I may be overlooking something. I also clearly figured that Linux online is better than Linux offline from what I read from blogs and numerous posts. So in essence, I cannot fully appreciate the true power of Open SUSE 11.2 offline. Would there be a way to install my USB modem device?

OpenSUSE Network :: No Iptab For Mobile Broadband Connection?

Jan 9, 2011

I connect to the internet with a mobile broadband dongle. I would like to change the dns settings as page loading seems to be running slow. However, there is no ip tab associated with mobile broadband in the knetwork manager module. There is however for my vpn connection. I have found reference to the ip tab in other postings but alas I am stumped. Is it possible that the mobile broadband connection does not load that tab whereas users on wireless or ethernet have it? That is the only solution I can think of.

OpenSUSE Network :: Mobile Broadband Connection Fails

May 22, 2011

I have a Huawei E173u-2 mobile broadband usb stick. It is recognised as a gsm-modem and shows up as such in the networkManager-plasmoid. I have set up the connection details for my ISP (O2), but I can't connect. When I click on the connection, "signal strength" is shown as well as "operator" (o2 - de). The "connection state" changes to "Preparing to connect", then "Setting network address". Then the modem vanishes and comes up again a few seconds later.

Here is the log (/var/log/messages):


It seems like there is a connection for about 5 seconds, then the modem hangs up and restarts .

The stick works fine with our windows netbook, so I don't think it is a hardware failure.

How do I get this working?

My system:
opensuse 11.4
kernel 2.6.39-30-desktop (2.6.38 gives the same error)
kde 4.6.3
plasmoid-networkmanagement 0.9.svn1192577-168.6

Ubuntu Networking :: Using Broadband Modem For Wan And Wifi For Lan?

Jan 12, 2011

I tried ubuntu and am very happy with the smooth running and clean interface. I am having trouble setting up my network connections. It seems that I am unable to connect to the internet via my broadband modem if I am connected to my LAN via wifi. I think I need to seperate the networks so that the internet traffic does look on the lan for [URL]. I don't think I have had this problem when I used much smaller distros where I had to set it up by hand.

I might need to add some details I am just not sure what is relevant. I only have a basic understanding of what is going on.


Solved in #ubuntu irc chan with help by erUSUL.

Just in case anyone else is searching for the same thing.

In network connections in the ipv4 settings tab I edited routes by clicking the button and checked the box next to: "use this connection only for resources on its network"
