Ubuntu Networking :: How To Install Huawei 3G Internet Device On 10.04
Aug 7, 2011
I recently got Tata Docomo 3G Data Card. I was unable to install it on my ubuntu 10.04. My Configuration:
Device: Huawei E367 Internet Device (3G e-stick)
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 AMD 64
Processor/ Architecture: AMD Athlon X2 64 bit (ASUS)
I don't have any other means of internet connection, so that I can download few files on ubuntu 10.04. I got to load all files from Windows and then start from ubuntu.
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?
Have a huawei model e122 and workd fine on Win7 but I have a dual boot with a seperate hard drive for linux.....its were all my online banking etc is done and was wondering does anyone know how to set it up on linux ?
with windows you just plug it in and the program and drivers automatically load, the usb modem has a sim card from my wireless provider that has all my details on it so I didnt need to enter a password or any thing
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 just recently installed ubuntu, my first experience with linux. I don't know if it isn't recognizing my wireless card or if it is another issue, but I am unable to view any wireless networks/connect to any. When I click on the network icon it says "wireless" with Device Not Ready underneath.
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'm having trouble getting onto the internet with ubuntu 9.04. I have just moved house and have just got the internet set up here (typing this on windows laptop with wireless). My ubuntu desktop is plugged in to the network, but in the top right hand corner when I click on the network icon I get: "Wired network device not managed"
In my old house I had a static IP. Is this anything to do with it?
A few days ago I ordered a UMTS USB-stick from Fonic and I received a Huawei model E1550. Win and Mac install files are on the stick, but nothing for Linux. I found for the USB Modeswitch "drivers" at www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitsch/ (nothing about the program source on the producers web page - strange), but the install gave me a lot of errors, and after a while, I decide to find another "approach". I think you might find this useful. This is my approach for Ubuntu 10.4 LTS. Open your terminal and type:
Save and close. To setup you mobile broadband connection go to System / Preferences / Network Connections, (or type in terminal ~$ nm-connection-editor) select the Mobile Broadband Tab, Add new and follow the assistent. The only changes I made, are the country of the provider, and the provider. (In my case Germany, Fonic) If you have to type in the settings yourself for Fonic, visit [URL] If the device is plugged, it will connect after a few seconds.
I installed today Slackware64-current on my laptop, but I can't get working internet connection. I have installed wvstreams 4.61 and wvdial 1.61, configured it right, it gets an IP address and connection but I can't get an access to the internet.
I was connected to internet by wired connection in my home. I was able to share my Internet connection to other computer by proxy using squid. My question is, Can I share my internet connection to mobile device by WiFi? I'm using ubuntu 9.10 in my laptop.

I have a USB huawei ec1262 wireless internet stick from Reliance. I google'd on how to install it. I am using Debian Lenny. I know that there is a "mode-switch" package that needs to be installed but this is not available on the down load package list for Debian. i can find this & also instructions if possible on how to get this working on my Lenny system .
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?
I have a USB Tata Docomo (USB Modem to connect internet) lsusb shows
Did a lot of Googling etc on forums and seems a few people have been able to use it. 1) [url] 2) [url]
Though I followed steps as per above links but I my connection via network manager does not establishes. Which as per above links should have come if things went correctly. In Windows same modem works correctly.
I also installed usb-modswitch but not sure as how to use it. I installed it via Synaptic (I use Ubuntu)
My kernel is
Like this it keeps on repeating above steps. My service provider does not give a user name and password.
i finished installing CentOS 5 and managed to connect to the Internet. My Network Interface Card (NIC) is "Atheros L2 Fast Ethernet" and it is not in the device list. anybody can tells me what i should do now to be connected to the Internet?
I can not get NetworkManager to handle my Huawei E220 usb modem. I have searched forums and tried a lot of things. I have just upgraded from openSUSE 11.2 to openSUSE 11.3 using zypper. It seems to work fine except that umtsmon stopped to work, so for now my laptop has no connetion to internet at all. Here are some information about my settings:
I have used usb_modeswitch to make the device a modem. Am I right if I say that usb_modeswitch is a one time command, or does it swap the setting each time it is called? Anyhow lsusb states that the device is a modem. (All the time.) code...
I have opensuse 11.1 Gnome on Lenovo S10e. I'm wanting to establish a mobile internet connection. I have tried so far...*UMTSMON but when I click on it nothing happens. I have reinstalled the program several times to no avail. *WINE to run the Optus program, however the program doesn't find the HUAWEI USB stick & *Via a Bluetooth connection (use mobile phone as a modem) didn't work either Anyhow, I have tried these and some other ways to get mobile to no avail.
Also, have gone to network connections-mobile broadband-add-configure it- but what am I forgetting to do? Need a path I can take to get mobile internet working. (I even have a direct SIM card slot in this laptop
I have upgraded my Acer Aspire One from 10.10 to 11.4. My T-Mobile UK Broadband Dongle worked fine until then, and now it won't work. It starts flashing green (as it did before) and then it flashes blue. I can see a Mobile Broadband option in Network Manager (including the settings that worked in 10.10). However, a right click on the network icon in the top panel does NOT give me any corresponding (T-Mobile) connect option, nor is there anywhere in there with a check against Mobile Broadband as there was in 10.10
As the title says, the operating system is unable to detect the usb modem Huawei EC 1262. It is annoying since i dont have any alternate connection to troubleshoot. I can't download any software through ubuntu software center. I am using ubuntu since 2005 but mostly i used dsl. this thing is new to me. since i moved from my previous place so had to buy wireless connection.
I recently bought a Huawei EC1261 mobile broadband dongle from Tata Teleservices. Unfortunately,neither does the dongle does not work in Ubuntu 9.04(Jaunty Jackalope) nor in Windows XP. The dongle is rather mounted as a drive and not recognised by NetworkManager as a mobile broadband device. The drive can be accessed with Nautilus as well as terminal like any other USB pen drive and located at "/media/disk". Also, does the device work in Ubuntu 10.04(Lucid Lynx)? report if anyone has tried using the device on Lucid, as I will upgrade to Lucid if the device is supported.
I need driver for my Huawei e5 modem. connection by wi fi is ok but i need to read messages from the SIM card, inserting to phone isn't possible because if i put it back into modem i will be asked for PIN code that is typed by the computer.
10.04. Updated frequently (nothing unsupported but official). Last time NM couldn't connect to internet. It was just animating for 20-30 sec. and stopped after. Modem is detected (as always). The only way I am able to get connection is wvdial. Which I'm using now.
I've used Ubuntu for almost 3 years now and now I'm forced back in the arms of windows. Unfortunantly the only internet connection thats available here is a 3G modem connection. When I bought the connection a Huawei E122 modem was delivered to me.
When I plug it in it recognizes the modem as it should and it even lets me set it up. But then when I connect, it fails.I have googled around for a couple of days and I've come up empty handed.I really want ubuntu back, and still be able to use the internet.I have a Asus EEE 1008ha laptop and use ubuntu 9.10
I currently use Ubuntu 9.04. I have thought of upgrading to 10.04 for a long time, but I am unable to do so as I do not know if my mobile broadband device, Huawei EC1260, works out of the box in 10.04. In the Ubuntu wiki, I found that it was not compatible with 9.10 and a bug report had been already filed. A line is mentioned in the page, which tells us: Declined for Lucid by Jeremy Foshee So, does this mean that the problem is fixed in 10.04? Or, if it is incompatible, then, how will I configure it so that it can work? Now, many people may be considering that I might just download the CD image and try it out. Although my company has given me the device with 5 GB of free usage, but I have to show reasons for any file downloaded more than 15 MB.
I just recently switched from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 10.04.1. Like Ubuntu 9.10, Networkmanager will not recognise the Huawei EC1260 until I do all this in a terminal:Code:udo rmmod usb-storagesudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x140bHowever, if I have plugged in a pen drive earlier, then the above methods fail, too.This is a continuation of the problem that first appeared in 9.10 which has not been fixed yet (and reportedly fixed in 10.04).
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.
Where can I find details of how to set up a Huawei E173 on Natty? The network interface's status icon shows first "waiting for authorization" then it goes to "not connected" The modem hardware is showing up when it is plugged in:
