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.

My PC crashed and I replaced Windows XP with Ubuntu. My laptop is still on Windows. Haven't been able to connect to the internet on my PC, Linux IT guy told me there was an issue with drivers on Ubuntu. Was told the Ubuntu community would know how to fix this. I've been reading through the posts and found a similar sort of problem posted with a solution posted also. The solution it seemed, lay in the Sakis website. I went to the Sakis website and downloaded Sakis3G onto my memory stick via my laptop. I need to get internet connectivity on my PC. My friend advised me to put the stick into the PC and then to open the terminal and type the following commands: gunzip sakis3g.g2 > chmod+xsakis3g > /sakis3g --interactive. Each command on a new line however after typing the first line: gunzip sakis3g.g2, I got 'No such file or directory'.
I have a Vodafone mobile broadband dongle for the United Kingdom. The installation software is for Windows and Macs only. In Windows it works fine. If I plug the dongle in the USB in Ubuntu then it is recognised but the installation does not start (quite understandably). So I tried using wine with the Windows executable. It starts off promisingly, then hangs. Some files are created along with desktop icons but the installation does not complete.
I have seen here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=vodafone) the comment that Vodafone installation can be tricky. So, can any kind person tell me if it is possible to get Vodafone dongles working under 10.04? Also, are there any other UK broadband pay-as-you-go dongles that will work? I have seen in a very recent post that "3" seems to be plug-and-play?
I need Internet on the road so brought a netbook and a USB Mobile Broadband stick. I've followed the installation instructions provided by the provider but this still does not work. I've also tried a couple of similar installation instructions found around the net. Has anybody had any luck getting this to work in Fedora 14? How did you or how can I get this to work?
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.
I am new to Linux. I have recently installed the Ubuntu 11.4 LTS Distro that comes with the Haynes Linux Manual (which I heartily recommend to new users). For the Internet I have a Huawei E1550 dongle on the 3 network in the UK which I'm currently using with Windows XP on my desktop to post this thread. After some initial fumbling, I'm unable to use the dongle with Ubuntu.
I use a Huawei E 1550 mobile connection, which worked fine in Ubuntu 9.10.I've got it working okay in 10.04, having installed modeswitch. However, it will not automatically reconnect if it drops out. I can force a reconnection, only if I remove the dongle and then plug it in again. Although it shows in network manager, clicking on the list entry for the dongle, just produces a disconnected dialogue message. The only way to get it to reconnect is to remove the dongle and plug it in again.I know there have been a few posts about getting mobile dongles to work in 10.04, but I can't see any solutions to this little issue yet.
i am using ubuntu 10.04. my huawei e1550 usb mobile broadband modem was detected out of the box and was working fine . But after unlocking it with a software,the modem is detected and when i connect ,it immediately disconnects. unlocking was some 'Firmware upgrade' . I tried other distros like pclinuxOs but the same problem prevails. and it is working in windows.
I just purchased a mobile broadband connection from 3 in Denmark. I spent three hours following guides about usb-modeswitch and such. I just couldn't get it to work. Now, finally, I've come THIS far, but yet no internet.
Code: daniel@daniel-laptop:~$ sudo usb_modeswitch

I am attempting to connect to Virgin Broadband (Australia) pre-paid using a Huawei E160e modem in Ubuntu 9.10 UNR. I have setup the connection as per [URL].. including disabling CHAP and changing the APN as required in the thread. when I try to connect using the network manager, it disconnects straight away with the message "GSM Network disconnected". When examining the logs /var/log/daemon.log, I get the following information:
Code: Jan 23 21:26:09 janet-laptop NetworkManager: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) starting connection 'Virgin Mobile' Jan 23 21:26:09 janet-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (ttyUSB0): device state change: 3 -> 4 (reason 0) Jan 23 21:26:09 janet-laptop NetworkManager: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...

I just installed 10.10 on a my new Aspire One Acer netbook and I got a mobile broadband USB stick from Wind mobile.
The stick is activated because it works on my 20 GB Windoze 7 O.S. but it doesn't work at all on my 140 GB Ubuntu O.S. Both systems are on the same machine so I know it's not a hardware problem either.
Here's what happens: I log on to Ubuntu, plug in the stick and I select the "New mobile broadband GSM connection" in the network connections menu.
From there I selected my country (Canada) and my mobile provider (Wind Mobile) than I selected my plan (Mobile Broadband) and my APN (broadband.windmobile.ca).
Then the stick blinks slowly and the network icon looks forever for a connection but no matter how long I wait no connection ever establishes. My roomate has it working on his HP laptop Ubuntu but no luck on mine. The stick just keeps blinking, a steady light indicates a connection.
My connection is much slower on linux than windows (I'm dualbooting so its easy to test). On speedtest.net I get 0.30Mb/s at most on linux but about 2Mb/s on windows.Torrents does not seem to be affected thou. I've got speeds up to about 150kB/s on Fedora.I'm running a fresh install of Fedora 12 64 bit.
I have a Huawei E122 Mobile Broadband HSPA USB Stick on three ireland. i can't get it to connect. but i think the problem might be, when i stick it in nothing happens. it doesn't show up under lsusb. i don't think it "mounts"
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 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)
I seem to have a problem with my mobile broadband connection. I have a huaweii e166 usb hsdpa modem. It is veeerrryy slow. It used to work fine in karmic a few days ago, used to get 800kbps (from whatismy.com), now in Lucid the speed test does not even finish sometimes, but if I open the system monitor it shows about 1kbps. Sometimes is gets slightly faster and I can browser a bit more, but then the speed goes down again, to barely useable. I have also setup the modem in xp and whatismy.com speedtest shows 900+kbps constantly. I did a clean install of lucid on my compaq presario cq60 laptop. I have disabled ipv6 and installed the usb-modeswitch_1.1.2-2_i386.deb and usb-modeswitch-data_20100127-1_all.beb but it is still very slow.
Need a bit of help with this have got the broadband side working lovely on Mandriva linux but it should show as a removable drive in fact in windows it shows as two on linux none its as if there not there.Can anyone point me in rite direction to sort this.it sort of see but it just is not available normally removable drives just come up
I have Slackware 13+current as of Jan 31, 2010. Except that kernel is 18.104.22.168_smp. I brought yesterday a new Globe Tattoo prepaid kit (a wireless broadband kit -- mobile broadband service here in the Philippines) which uses Huawei E1552 HSDPA USB stick (usb modem).
I understand that they don't natively support linux but from what I've learned, they are the most linux friendly wireless broadband provider. There are few success stories about installing them on Ubuntu, Xandros, Linux Mint and OpenSuSE.
I do searched the net and found: [url]
Which says I need to compile to create a huaweiAktBbo but when run, it says 'dev' failed. (Compile succeed though).
I tried kppp but my Huawei USB stick is detected as USB storage and not as a modem, so i need to use usb_modeswitch.
I grab it from [url] and tried to download the source but it seems that SlackBuilds has not updated yet its link (and the slackbuild package). I tried to make and make install the latest source from [url] but I think I forget that switch-data and conf, anyway I have to re-download again.
Do I need libusb? Or slackware 13 already have it? (I just learn while typing this that I forgot to download the switch-data and the conf file)
Another thing, I found this: [url]
But it says I need the qt compat lib from /extra? Is it this: [url] ?
I have a 2G Broadband service through my Ethernet cable. My provider in China has a user name and password to login to their service. I don?t have a modem or anything but the wire coming in from the outside. It is setup in windows but I can?t figure out how to do it in Ubuntu 11.04.
I am trying to use the HUAWEI E1756C USB stick to connect to the internet. Installing usb_modeswitch and usb_modeswitch-data allowed networkmanager to "recognize" the stick and set up a mobile broadband connection.
The result is that NM succeeded in connecting (one of every five attempts) but firefox does not surf, nor emails can be downloaded etc. Just like if not being connected. The USB modem shows the steady blue LED as connected.
A NM issue? I have tried disabling NM control and tried with PPP clients like NMTSMON, wvdial and even Sakis3g. All with the same results. They seem to connect and show flux up and downloaded but no surfing.
resolf.conf shows is pretty much empty and no DNS there.
The working settings in Window$ are:
Same settings with Sakis3G, or NMTSMON or NM result in connection with no action from applications that use the internet.
I have had a similar issue with WLAN each time I change to a different network. I solve that by forcing to update the DHCP. I mean using -su dhcpd wlan0
But attempts like dhcpcd ttyUSB0 or dhcpcd ttyS0 get the same result. So no idea if this is an DHCP, or DNS or another issue.
My box is an ASUS EEEPC 2005H netbook with OpenSuSE 11.2 and KDE
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04...How do i setup a broadband connection that DOES NOT require a username and password i tried pppoeconf but it wont let me proceed without entering something in the username and password fields. on XP i jus plug in my Ethernet cable and it works but it doest on ubuntu.
I have an Acer Aspire One A110. I was running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope until March 2010 and then upgraded to UNR 9.10 Karmic Koala. I've been using 3G wireless internet, here in Australia, first with Dodo and now with Optus. Dodo setup Dodo uses the Optus network. The modem I have used is a Huawei E169E HSDPA USB Stick (aka "dongle").
For a contract plan, my settings are: Number: *99# APN: dodolns1 Authentication: CHAP DNS servers: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 All other settings are default and/or blank.
Optus setup (prepaid) The modem I now use is a Huawei E160E. For a prepaid plan, my settings are: Number: *99# APN: preconnect Authentication: EAP, CHAP, MSCHAPv2 (it's working like this) DNS servers: 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 All other settings are default and/or blank.
I have installed UNR 9.10 (fresh install) and then setup my wireless fraudband as follows: Plug in dongle (some say that it needs to be plugged in when you boot). Open SystemNetwork Connections. Select Mobile Broadband tab, Add new connection. Select Optus and then review and change the settings as required. Click the network connections launcher at the top of the screen and select Optus to connect.
The most frequent problem I have experienced is DNS servers. I can connect to the wireless network but no pages would load. The Automatic PPP IPv4 setting rarely works for me and I prefer to set the DNS servers manually: Dodo 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 Optus 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 (maybe out of date?) Google 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 (works for any internet service provider)
More tips: For a better signal and more stable connection (but not necessarily faster), I use a 5 metre USB extension and hang the dongle in a window facing the Optus tower (basic extension will do, you don't need the fancy one with a repeater). Sometimes, the modem is not recognized when plugged in (not in the Network Connections) launcher. Be patient, wait a bit, then unplug it and try again. It should be OK the second time.
We recently got a new mini PC which came pre-installed with Ubuntu 10.10, so far, so good. Today, we invested in a Vodafone broadband dongle (model number: K3570-Z/K3571-Z). I've installed the dongle on our old XP machine, with no problems, however, Ubuntu won't even recognise that it's plugged in. What am I doing wrong? We've had the new machine for 3 days, so I'm really new to all of it and haven't learnt how to use the command prompt yet, so I'm hoping someone has some advice for a complete beginner. I can't understand why it's not recognising that somethings plugged in, because from what I've found, you need usb_modeswitch in over for the dongle to be recognised as a modem.
