I have a devolo MicroLink 56k Fun LAN modem, which I could configure in openSuse 11.2 as an DSL device. With 11.2 it worked fine. But it isn't possible in 11.3 to configure it, because I cannot set the dial up internet provider phone number for this DSL device.I also tried it to configure it as a modem, but then it used the /dev/modem device, which is the wrong device for this LAN modem.
I've been seeing a bunch of issues with the /etc/resolv.conf not picking up the nameservers for 3g connections, and managed to fix that issue using tips found here.. the one thing I m having a problwm with is my 3G USB modem not picking up a default route/gateway. I can connect using KNetworkManager, get an IP and nameservers, but.
And to top it all off, I cannot figure out what the default gateway should be from verizon to just write a script out myself that'll do it automatically.
I have tried every post on this site and Verizon's dealing with the UML290 Mobile Broadband USB Modem to get it configured with linux and have yet to have any luck in over a week of trying to get it to connect.
I am currently running OpenSuSE 11.4, all software has most recent available updates, > uname -a
I have tried setting up the UML290 using NetworkManager (Broadband Connection), also tried YaST > modems along with Qinternet to connect with no luck. Have tried using firstname.lastname@example.org and also email@example.com and neither have worked. Used #777 as "Number" and used "vzw" and "VZW" as passwords, still nothing.
I am trying to connect to wireless broadband using SuSE 11.2 and a Huawei E160E USB modem, through Internode Australia.
Networkmanager does not seem to recognise the modem so I am trying other means. I believe I have got wvdial to connect (it reports a correct IP address, the light on the stick goes solid blue and I can ping external IP addresses). However it can't find a DNS nameserver and I can't work out how to provide one to wvdial, and therefore can't do anything through the connection (I would rather not revert to ifup because this laptop travels between WLANs). I followed swerdna's comprehensive instructions on setting up a wireless broadband modem in YAST, but I got lost on the very last instruction: KMenu --> KInternet. I can't find this on my application launcher.
Got this modem and now i'm struggling to get it working.Device: Pantech UM 175 (CDMA Wireless Broadband Modem) Driver: cdc_acm *Modem requires custom startup key
Error: I get online for maximum 10 seconds, then i get disconnected and can't restart connection until i either replug the modem or disable mobile broadband conncetions via NetworkManager
What I've tried: google reconfigure modem use windows manual All the guides found on google are outdated SuSE version: 11.3 uname -a

Just installed Suse 11.4 Kde build. Using 64 bit ECS A780GM-A Ultra Mobo, 4 gigs ram, Athlon 7550 CPU, I am unable to detect my Verizon broadband MIFI 2200 with this new OS, have used Ubuntu in the past. Plugged in USB cable for modem into different ports, still does not work,
I had some Problems with analog Modems.We have now new Server Hardware witch don't work with Suse 10.2, now we Upgrade to 11.2, but the Devolo Modem doesnt work with the Drivers vor 10.2, No Problem, this Modems are sold out, i had to search for other Modems.Now I Test an Softmodem with Motorola Chipset, Bad Luck.Then i Think, Try a Hardware Modem From US-Robotics, Expensive but working on Linux: USR802981-OEM But don't working on Suse 11.2.If you had some Other Modem (internal Pci) witch works for DialIn Data Connections please sent me Type and Configs
If I connect with a 3g modem or with wireless sometimes the resolving does not work. This happens on opensuse 11.2. nslookup and dig works but nor ping nor ssh nor any other network application does work If I modify the /etc/resolv.conf after connecting to a wireless network for example it does not work even the dns are known And more strange if the resolver works and I modify /etc/resolv.conf with known dns the resolver does not work anymore. BTW: the dns entry from the wireless is 192.168.1.1 and I do not have any idea how the wireless ap is configured... so it could be in this case that dns is not forwared only allowed to use 192.168.1.1 but the other case is a 3g modem which not even the propagated dns entries works in the bad case
I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.2 and just about the only thing that doesn't work is my wireless internet. From my research, I should be using the iwl4965 or iwlwifi driver; however my system seems to be running iwlagn. I have no idea how to switch it as neither of the correct drivers can be found in my yast, and I've failed to find any information about this on the Intel« Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux* website.
I'm using a 'ice.net' 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:
It seemed like the modem connected, but Firefox was not able to connect afterwards (Server not found)
i have been able to get on line running other linux os using the terminal first i type sudo modprobe -r usbserial & enter followed by sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1199 product=0x120 & enter the last command is sudo dmesg|grep -i ttyusb. I have done this for years and it always has got me on line after the above i open kppp and select for modem /dev/ttyusb0 and click to verify kppp recognizes my sierra wireless usb modem and that is all i have ever had to do, plug in the usb modem type the three commands it comes back with confirmation the modem is attached to ttyusb0, ttyusb1 & ttyusb2 in kppp i click /dev/ttyusb0 and click quarry and get on line with suse11.1 it is not so the first command sudo modprobe -r usbserial comes back with a fatal error but the second and third command give me the same results saying i have attached the usbmodem to ttyusb0,1 & 2. but i cannot configure it in kppp.
i have tried researching on line but cannot find a similar thread. I believe the way i described above has worked on lindows 5.0, and it is how i do it with Mint which i can get on line with today. so i hope one of the wonderful millions of linux users will direct me as to what i am doing wrong. i am running amd 785 4 gb ram msi mainboard ms-7549 my modem is sierra wierless modem 595u (vendor=0x1199 product=0x120) connecting through Sprint pcs which requires no user name or password.
I had an ATT "2Wire" modem/router that was working but connection to the Internet was often poor. An ATT technician came to my home and swapped out the modem/router for the identical model. I changed the ESSID and WEP code to match the new unit and everything was fine with the following wireless units: a wireless desktop, two cellphones, three wireless Archos tablets, and a couple of e-reader tablets. So all seemed to be fine wirelessly. However...
My laptop (SuSE 11.0, KDE3) simply won't connect no matter what I do. I changed the ESSID and WEP info in the lappy exactly as was done with the other wireless devices named above. But no good. The lappy does see the modem/router (a good, strong signal appears in KNetworkManager). But it seems as if the modem/router is rejecting the lappy's attempted handshake using the new ESSID and/or WEP information.
I thought that perhaps there was something wrong with the lappy's wireless card, so I took it to a Starbucks to see if it would connect there on an open network, and it did without problem. So the lappy's wireless card appears to be working fine. It just won't talk to the encrypted modem/router at home. Here are the settings on the lappy. Hopefully something here is easily identified as the culprit. With all the clicking I've done it certainly is possible that I ticked something that should not have been ticked and just don't realize what I've done.
Network settings screen: Global options tab: Network setup method: user controlled with Network Manager Change default route via DHCP (ticked)
Why won't the new modem/router which is exactly the same as the old one except for the ESSID and WEP work with my lappy yet it does work with a bunch of other wireless devices?
i've benn reading for a while so that i choose to use opensuse as my linux but i need internet on my computer and the only way i can get it is throuth my CDU680 modem of franklin and cmotech, but i dont understand the xplanation of other forums and i would like one step by step of my case. I use open suse 11.3
I am using open suse 11.3 with kernel 2.6.34 KDE is 4.4.4, I have Lenovo G550 laptop My system sometimes detects and connects the modem to internet and sometimes its doesn't detects and I am unable to connect to internet I have all the updates installed. Because of this I have to use Forbidden OS (windows)
Sorry for repeating the same old complaint but there doesn't seem to be a common fix: Wireless does not work on my Presario R3000 although SUSE 11.x lists the hardware in the Hardware Information list and the hardware is turned on. Network Manager doesn't display any wireless networks in SUSE while Win 7 can see 4 of them on the same machine. Ubuntu has no problem either
i've installed openSUSE 11.2/KDE. Installation process finishes with fun. The first thing that i wanted in my laptop don't work. That's wireless internet. I've google and google. saw many thereds in openSUSE forms and check what i understand after reading thereds. Finally what i understand is i've to install firmware. I've downloaded the b43-fwcutter and broadcom-wl-184.108.40.206.tar. Installed b43-fwcutter. and copy broadcom-wl-220.127.116.11.tar. in to root. by using
I installed opensuse 11.3 succesfully on my acer aspire 5670 (5672) laptop. Everything works except wireless connection. Looking for a solution is follewed the " My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next" guide on this forum. These are the results i become: (2) Determine what device you have.: 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I have one of the new Verizon 4G VL600 usb aircards. I also have the UML290. I was able to get the UML290 working using wvdial, but I was not able to get the VL600 card working. I am trying to ditch windows, but unfortunately can't until I get this card working, because I had to give the working card to our support people.
This is a known issue, but I want to spur some more conversation regarding it.
Here are some of the diagnostics and output I have regarding the device:
So all in all it looks like the device is showing up as an ethernet controller and the system itself is setting it up as eth1 in my case.
The throughput on this thing in covered areas is 18Mbps at times, which is friggin fast as far as I'm concerned. I would love to have that on the move, but I have no idea what to do from here.
I'm using ubuntu 10.10 x32 dekstop, on a lenovo x201.
I am new to Linux and using Linux Mint 11 RC after trying Ubuntu, and Fedora. I am not new to computing having owned and written software for Amiga, and owned and built different Windows machines.
I have a E627 Emachine Laptop with an AMD TF-20 processor that runs a Athros Communications AR8132 Fast Ethernet Card rev c0 and the network controller is a Broadcom BGM 4312 802.11 b/g LPPHU rev 01. I have 2 megs of memory and this is the machine that I put the Linux Mint os on.
For days I have been trying to get the wireless to work. I have read everything I could find on the net and know that this machine has a problem with this. I also know that the drivers in Mint don't work even though they are supposed to. I was using Mint 10 which is the stable version and it had the same problem as did Ubuntu which I know is almost the same as Mint and Fedora.
I have decided after many hours that the way to go might be to install one of those thumb drives with a wireless modem built in, but can't find an appropriate Linux one that will work with my setup. Does anyone know if there is such a thing?
I've just upgraded from openSUSE 11.2 to 11.3. In 11.2 everything worked fine: I've booted my laptop, logged in and turn my wireless card on using the hardware wireless button, the KDE Wallet opened up, I inserted the password and voil´┐Ż, wireless connection was on.But after upgrading from 11.3, it doesn't work like that anymore. I need to have the hardware wireless button pressed to on during boot, otherwise Network Manager will not work. And yes, I do check the "Enabled wireless" option, but it doesn't work. When I tried to check it out, I found out that the wireless "Scan" button that scans and displays the available wireless connections shows nothing.So, if I forget to put the wireless on for boot, I must restart and put it on. I've tried log off and log on, and restarting some network services, but neither worked.I have an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG, as showed below, and I'm posting this message using it.

Suse on an (old even) laptop is even more fun that it is on a desktop. BUT, I still cant get my wireless to work! I have the Encore ENUWI-N3 USB adaptor. Suse sucessfully detects my USB device, recognize its a Wireless lan network adapter, installs it as such (gives it its driver) and adds my wireless menu under network manager. (it gives it the rt2x00) I can enable / disable the USB device from there (its light corroborates that.
So all in all, suse installs my wireless. But I CANNOT find any AP when I scan. Under the "scan" tool (under connec to wireless > A wireless network ect ect) I find no APs. Adding the SSID of the AP manually is of no help either. And the command sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan merely gives - "wlan1 Scan completed" and nothing else. Check ifconfig - not a frame sent/received.
I bought a Toshiba NB305-410BN-G and it has an internal Sierra Wireless GOBI`2000 HS - USB Mobile Broadband Device 9001. This works fine providing wireless internet over Verizon's cellular service using Windoze 7 Starter os. I installed Ubuntu 9.1 (canonical) on the NB305 and I found a network device GUI that allowed me to configure "Mobile Broadband" for Verizon and allowed me to check a little box to automatically start the service. This action does not provide me with Verizon on Ubuntu. When I looked at the devices, I cannot see the gobi 2000.How do I get the gobi to work on 9.1?
