I have a weird problem on my laptop. Everything works okey on PC though.
I'm using kNetworkManager on my OpenSuse 11.2 on PC.
Everything works fine there with the following settings: 1. Make a new GSM Connection in kNetworkManager and enter settings there 2. Edit etc/sysconfig/network/config file and set .....DNS_Policy from "auto" to "" 3. Enter openDNS to /etc/resolv.conf (nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
It works like that on my PC.
I did the same on my laptop. The modem connects fine, but the DNS'es ain't resolved. So skype etc will work, but no pages will open in Firefox for example.
What else should I need to do to make this work?
It's weird it works the SAME way on my PC, but doesn't on my laptop.
I'm trying to make a Huawei K3715 HSDPA modem work in Ubuntu 10.04.1. I plug it in, and it loads two mass storage devices (one CDRom containing the Windows software, and one 2GB drive that appears empty), but I don't really know where to go from here.
Note that I replaced the stock network manager with Wicd, as I find it more reliable in picking up wifi connections. I'm not sure if it's suitable for connecting the HSPA modem though.
I've been trying for a couple of days now to get the Huawei E1750 to work but have had no luck so far. I've installed the packages usb-modeswitch-1.1.4 and usb-modeswitch-data and have edited the usb-modeswitch.conf to include the following:
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 am having trouble with my new Huawei USB modem. It gets detected and lsusb shows me the vendor id and product id as 12d1 : 140b Huawei Technologies Pvt Ltd but the device does not create any entry in /dev/ttyUSB* am i missing something?
I have mobile broadband which is T-Mobile UK. The modem is a Huawei E160 and on a Ubuntu page, it says that this modem doesn't work at all. That's the only internet source I have so I need to be able to use it. tried to install usb_modeswitch and I'm going to test a different piece of software later. My version of Ubuntu is 10.04.
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 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've been trying out the netbook remix of 10.04 but I've been having some issues getting my Huawei modem to work. It detects the install cd and usb storage but it does not discover the modem.
This is the dmesg output after connecting the device:
Code: > [10540.912126] usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9 > [10541.055850] usb 1-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice > [10541.060834] scsi12 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices > [10541.061799] usb-storage: device found at 9
I am having desperate problems trying to connect to the net with a Huawei E173 USB modem. I was using Linux Mint 7 which I upgraded to version 9 today to see if that would fix the problem but it made no difference. Basically it seems the only time I can connect to the net in linux is if I use the modem in windows and then restart straight into linux, in that case it sometimes gets recognised and works. So at least I know it can work.
I've been trying loads of stuff like usb_modeswitch I found on the net but none of it has worked. Here is what ls-usb gives me -
I am unable to get any work done without the net and I will not have access to a wired connection til the new year.
I have started using ubuntu 11.04 desktop edition recently. And sadly i dont have an internet connection. I have an USB modem of Huawei. But I cant configure that in ubuntu. Im from india and using Reliance Netconnect 1x EC121 modem. Can anybody please tell me how to configure this modem so that I can connect to the internet? Due to lack of internet connection im not being able to download any updates or codecs. I have started using Ubuntu only 2 days ago..
I have loaded Ubuntu linux 10.04 and Windows XP in my PC. I have CT800P Modem supplied by BSNL for getting internet connection. Though the modem is working properly in XP it is not being detected by Ubuntu. How to configure CT800P with Ubuntu Linux 10.04.
I want to configure the Huawei E220 modem I recently bought in Fedora 10. I read lot of detail documents in the internet. All were interesting and explaining the wvdial.conf file. The problem I have is that, the file asks for the phone # to dial, username & a password. I don't have these information since my ISP didn't provide those. It works perfectly in Windows, in which above information are not needed, because when plugged in Windows, a software installation launches, which does the job to connect to the internet. So, is there a way to configure the modem to connect to the internet without those information. Because my ISP refuses to provide those, when I called there customer services.
My machine is running on a dual-boot Windows Vista/openSUSE 11.2 scenario. I have been trying to get my Huawei E1550 to work on Linux for the past few days trying numerous methods suggested in other forums from people with the same problem, but I have not produced any fruitful results.
Plugging in the USB modem results in Linux detecting it as a CD-ROM. I have installed usb_modeswitch in attempt to switch it to a modem, but Linux still fails to recognize it. Windows Device Manager and lsusb both give ProductID=1001 and VendorID=12d1 connected to USB1. I'm guessing since Windows detects the correct IDs, the Linux versions should also be correct. In any case, I ran usb_modeswitch with the Default IDs for /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf, which gave 0x1446 as the ProductID, not 0x1001. Upon running usb_modeswitch, the product ID could not be found so the program fails and quits asking if it's connected (and it is).
Just to test, I also ran wvdial which unsurprisingly did not detect the modem and could not send the init strings. All commands were done using root privileges. Also note that when after usb_modeswitch is run and upon plugging in the USB, NetworkManager pops up near the tray saying "attached" but still shows the device as a CD-ROM.
I have recently bought a branded Onda MT835UP USB broadband modem. The hardware comes with its own drivers/GUI for linux, however I'd rather use the Debian-provided NetworkManager+modemmanager packages.
A few details:
- I'm using debian unstable, - latest NetworkManager 0.8.2-3 from experimental - latest modemmanager 0.4+git$foo from testing - latest usb_modeswitch[_data] from experimental
