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?
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.
I have a little bit of a prediciment with my Mobile Broadband dongle, even though I know I'm in a 3G area (Dongle Supports 3G connection) my internet still loads at the normal GPRS speeds max of 5kb/s. Is there anyway to change the speed of it or do I have to keep with GPRS at the moment?
I recently bought a D-Link DIR-655 router capable of 802.11n operation, upgrading from a DIR-624 router only capable of 802.11g operation. While my overall setup uses wired connections, other people in the house prefer wireless, and the upgrade was undertaken more for a hoped for increase in wireless range, rather than the possibility of increased speed, since the router is located to accommodate the wired connections. However, to test the 802.11n operation I bought a D-Link DWA-130 USB dongle for my now 5-year old laptop, which comes with an otherwise satisfactory 100Mbs ethernet port(eth1) and an 802.11g wireless card(eth0). By checking the dmesg | grep firmware output after I plugged in the dongle I determined that the necessary firmware was rtl8192sfw.bin, which I found on the web, and downloaded into the directory /lib/RTL8192SU.
A subsequent reboot and then YaST > Network Devices > Network Settings showed the device as wlan0, but not configured. I changed the Network Setup Method to ifup (since I can see no way to do a device configuration in Network Manager), and configured the device, and at the same time deleted the configuration for the existing 802.11g wireless card(eth0). I then rebooted, went back into YaST to confirm the wlan0 device was configured and the 802.11g device (eth0) was not, changed the Network Setup Method back to Network Manager, rebooted again. Making sure that the router was set to only transmit/receive using 802.11n I then typed iwlist scan. To my surprise, the output showed first that the supposedly unconfigured eth0 device seemed to be still active, for it found my home network, and claimed that the protocol used was 802.11g. On the other hand, the newly configured wlan0 device produced the message: "Interface doesn't support scanning: Network is down".
First, should I expect iwlist scan to work for a device that shows as unconfigured? And even if it should work, shouldn't it show 802.11n as the protocol, assuming that the router is in fact telling the truth? Is there any independent means to determine if the router is only using 802.11n as it claims? Second, the overall goal is to make the wireless network in the house 802,11n only, and since the dongle is backward compatible with 802.11g, I would expect to permanently unconfigure the eth0 device and use the dongle, both here and on the road. I do not need two wireless connections on my laptopThe laptop is running SuSE 11.2 as of about a month ago.

I am a newbi both to this site and linux only installed Mandrake 8.2 for the first time 3 days ago. I am trying to install my three 3G USB dongle in Mandrake it seems to see the dongle in usbview and if I lsusb form the command line. I did see some where that the driver had not been loaded, I have been trying to use setserials to set a virtual serial port to the device but as I am a windows engineer and am not sure of the process and commands need HELP... I have read that the 3G dongle can be used as a serial connection it seems other people have done this on the web, but I need help can anyone explain how to connect to a usb device as a serial ttys*. I must also point out that this dongle has a virtual CD-rom and a built in memory chip which installs the drivers in windows when it is plugged in.. what are the steps to install or shouldI upgrade to a newer version of linux.
I spent more than a week trying to understand how to synchronize my PDA (Windows Mobile 6.0) with Suse 11.1 and no result. So far I learned what is PalmOS and what is not (I've been trying J-pilot and Gnome Pilot) I've tried with USB-cable and Bluetooth.
What I have so far: - SynCE (installed via YaST, with some other components) - Blueman just in case. Was by default in my SUSE 11.1 - Evolution - working bluetooth (Gnome Aplet + OBEX) - Multisync (it does see the SynCE, doesn't see the Evolution)
So how to synchronize is one case, but first of all I need to know: how connect my PDA that SUSE will see a device for synchronization? I've tried Bluetooth and I can only get a paired OBEX PDA. I can send files. that's all. I would like to ask You for help. How to do it, step by step. We can start from scratch. During debug we can use text-terminal mode. But after is finished I would like to have a GUI terminal. I can promise, that if we manage to set-it up. I can describe it as a WIKI for other. Step-by-step.
Anyone knows how to connect T-Mobile dongle to CentOS 5.5 please tell me.Another question I would like to open mozila firefox automatically at certain hour of day. What script should I write in the console?

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'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:-
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)?

Few days back I want to try for Kubuntu and I installed it through Ubuntu.Now I can log to either Ubuntu or Kubuntu.But when I connect to Kubuntu I cant connect to Internet with Kubuntu network manager.When I try to make a usb disk with kubuntu I realise that my usb dongle detected as a disk.How should I connect to Internet by using my usb dongle.
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.
Im having a lot of trouble getting my t mobile dongle to work. I have looked through most of the other threads about resolving the problem. when I see the answer about typing comands into the terminal I get lost and dont know what to do... I now have ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04 duel boot on laptop (hp nx6325). Cant seem to get it work on either virsion. I have tryed to chance passwords as other threads have sugested.
Am now trying (and failing) with this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1147685 I have downloaded the mode switch and extracted it to the desktop. In the above thread it say "3) Open the Terminal, and go to the location of the decompressed file and execute"
Im a Linux newbie and am running OpenSuse 11.3 (Gnome, 220.127.116.11-0.5-desktop Kernel) and Ive an Asus N13 wifi dongle (linux compatible). I currently connect using my laptopś internal wifi but I bought the dongle due to trouble with weak signal. It came with some sort of code that can be "compiled" but I havent got a clue how to do that (and I have been researching this matter for quite some time now). I then came across a post where someone with the same USB stick created and added only two small files to his filesystem and it worked...for him (maybe becasuse he was on a different Distro )
Ralink RT2870 USB Stick and created the two files mentioned in the post (network_drivers.rules and network_drivers.conf) and placed them in ETC... etc, etc! I rebooted the system but NetworkManager only lists it as "device not ready" ... So now back to square one.
opensuse 10.4 KDE. wired internet works but the network manager is dead, there's a red network icon with a cross in the panel and opening the manage connections window only the VPN tab works all others are grayed out cant setup any wireless or mobile broadband connection. on the live cd there was no problem with network management.
I need help with connecting to cdma mobile broadband for a tethered samsung phone. When I first installed Suse the phone icon on the network manager icon was all i needed to do to connect to the cdma network.After rebooting later the icon is gone and i cannot manage to connect. The connection is still there, but it is as if the computer no longer recognizes my phone as a modem. Well sense i just installed i figured lets try reinstalling to see if it was a bad installation. It happened exactly the same again. If anyone has any idea how to get network manager to allow me to connect to the internet again i would be grateful.
I'm try to setup a wireless network with my linksys wireless router and my HP laptop dual booting Vista & Suse 11.2. I have the vista networked, just fine. Where I can share files and the printer connected to my desktop. But I want to be able to use Suse in the same way, full time and to stray away from Vista. My wife and kids like easy. So I'm trying to transform them and show them something new.
I'm running OpenSuse 11.4 with kernel (18.104.22.168-1.2-desktop i686) and KDE 4.6.00 "release 6".When I first installed the system the KNetworkManager found my wireless network. After entering my details it suddenly couldn't find it any more and hasn't found it since (even after re-install). My network is definitely working. I did try and set it up with ifup but it still couldn't find any network. Unfortunately I don't know anything about networks even less about wireless ones. Many thanks in advance.
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)
