Debian Configuration :: Onda MT835UP USB Broadband Modem Doesn't Work With NetworkManager
Jan 20, 2011
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
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.
I am trying to switch to mobile broadband, Ubuntu 9.10, Huawei E1750 modem, provider Telia Sweden. So far I tried this:
(previous: tried to get started with an Option Icon 550 modem, but could not do it. Ubuntu froze completely, networkmanager refused to see the modem after this. Read somewhere that it is (next to) impossible with Ubuntu, but Huawei is a better chance. Maybe I changed some settings on the way, went and got a Huawei)
-connected modem, nothing happened
-rebooted to Windows Vista, installed modem
-rebooted to Ubuntu networkmanager sees the modem, when I select it, it gives a message 'GSM network, disconnected'
I have no idea how I managed this, but I am able to connect to the internet but NetworkManager doesn't show any connection. This means that until I kill it, I cannot log in with Pidgin, because it is waiting for a connection.
Do I disable NetworkManager completely or do I try to make it recognize that I am connected to the Internet? If the latter, then how should I go about? (Please let me know which files I need to show you, because I know I've messed around with a couple).
I just configured my system to be a mail server after following this howto URL...Normally before the configuration i use a huawei E1550 to browse on it but now it no longer works.It connects to the internet but refuses to browse.I cannot open any webapge or site for now.I suspect it has to do with the shorewall configuration i must have changed that has caused this.
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 have an Atheros wireless USB dongle that will connect to my Wifi network just fine in Gnome but in KDE doesn't. I've read through the http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse and have installed all packages and tried all methods noted there but still can't get the wlan0 to work at all in KDE. Is wireless in KDE & Debian Squeeze useless?
So, as per Arch Linux's wiki, I tried to make some optimisations to the intel driver through setting it up in Xorg.conf (or as advised by that wiki article, in '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf' ), but I've ran into trouble enabling DRI3. Here's my current config file:
So far everything works fine, I haven't seen any noticeable tearing, nor did I had any problems with any graphics-intensive programs I run, but there's a slight problem with the DRI3 part as indicated by Xorg's logs:
Code: Select all[ 26.556] (II) Loading sub module "dri2" [ 26.556] (II) LoadModule: "dri2" [ 26.556] (II) Module "dri2" already built-in [ 26.556] (==) Depth 24 pixmap format is 32 bpp [ 26.616] (II) intel(0): SNA initialized with Haswell (gen7.5, gt2) backend [ 26.616] (==) intel(0): Backing store enabled
First of all it still mentions the DRI2 driver, is this supposed to happen, or did something go wrong? Also it complains that it cannot find a file, which I can't figure out which package it belongs to, and taking a quick search around the interwebs hasn't produced anything useful...
The IGP is the CPU, which is actually a i5-4460... which according to Wikipedia it has a HD Graphics 4600 GPU.
My net-book is working properly with Debian squeeze 2-6-32-5-686, only the wlan does not work. After typing lsusb I have got the message: lsusb : Bus 002 Device 002 : ID 160a:3184 VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VNT-6656 [WiFi 802.11b/g USB Dongle]
So I obtained the driver package : VT6656_Linux_src_v1.19_12_x86. I followed the instructions ( make install... ) - but the result is only a lot of error messages. Mayby I am using the wrong driver package for the squeeze kernel - I don't know.
how nobody else could have run into this in the meantime. [URL] Two friends of mine are having the same issue on Ubuntu-11.4-machines. In short: Connecting to the Cisco-VPN via shell-command "vpnc" works flawlessly, whereas NetworkManager just doesn't connect at all. We had this working in older versions of Fedora/Ubuntu about some months ago...
i created a second instance of postfix.It isn' t the first time that i made this procedure but with debian i had a lot of problem.I think that the problem is chroot configuration of postfix .In the first i had two problem smtp “fatal: unknown service: smtp/tcp” and the second instance was enable to make nslookup of domain.I copied the necessary file in /var/spool/postfix-second-instace and i solved the errors.Now the problem is that there aren't error in log file but connect to xxx.xxx.net[yyy.nn.yyy.yyy]:25: Connection timed out for all connection. and the email are all in defer directory and the second instance doesn' t send emails.
Debian configurating, so I try to use wifi adapter, but it doesn't work. I have installed Debian Jessie from netinst CD. To reach perfect speed no options were selected. After I installed xfce4 and xfce4-goodies.I follow some different instructions and no dice. Wicd show me no avalable wifi connections. used Ubuntu 14, Ubuntu 12, etc. and I didn't have any problems with wi-fi connections. Some outputs of comands...
I have Debian Squeeze x64 on ThinkPad T61p with standard 2.6.32-5-amd64 kernel. thinkpad_acpi loaded as module, suspend to RAM works fine from menu in KDE as well as by closing the lid, however machine doesn't appear to react on pressing Fn+F4 which should put it to sleep as well. I've read through thinkpad_acpi documentation and asked Google but so far can't find the solution. Can anyone, point me in correct direction?
last week while I was using ssh to the computer1 inside a NAT as usual, I made another tunnel from the computer1 that I was connecting to, to another computer2 inside that NAT (ssh 192.168.1.130) and after making some changes in computer2 I typed reboot. The computer2 rebooted but the tunnel totally hung and I had to kill it in my laptop. Since that day I haven't been able to ssh to the computer1 as I am used to.

I recently installed Fedora 15 x86_64 on my new AMD Machine and I'm quite pleased with things thus far.Here's where my problem comes. I mainly bought that machine to help me with Development. More specifically, Virtual Machines for testing purposes. I have installed Fedora 15 x86_64 as a qemu-kvm Virtual Machine and it's working.. for the most part. I am having a whole lot of trouble getting it to connect to the Internet.
My guess is the only way I'm going to reliably do that is to setup a Bridge. Yes/no? However, in order to setup a Bridge I need to disable NetworkManager and that where the fun happens. It completely disables my network connection. I'm probably missing something small, but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I've double checked my ifcfg-em1 multiple times(I've been trying for ~24 hours so far) and all the settings are as they should be.
I've turned NetworkManager off and stopped it(chkconfig and service) and turned network on(chkconfig and service). Theoretically I should simply need to turn off NM and turn on network and things should be fine. no?
The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:
So here's the thing: I have a mobile broadband pcmcia card that worked just well on jaunty, but as I installed karmic it doesn't work, coz it mounts the card's storage but doesn't recognize the hardware. The help says I need the package 'udev-extras', but there's no such package for karmic and the one for jaunty doesn't work with karmic.
I have an OpenVPN connection set up in the NetworkManager, and it works fine when I click on it to activate it. I would like to have it start at login, and I cannot find a way to get it running automatically at login, just after I connect to the local network.
I have little problem with NetworkManager. This problem begin when I upgraded Debian Etch to Lenny.
When I right-clicked nm-applet in Debian Etch, I get this dropdown menu where was button "Edit Connections..." Now in Lenny there is only "Edit Wireless Connections" button. So I can't edit my wired connections anymore.
I know I can just edit /etc/network/interfaces file to set my IP, but I need about 20 different IP:s at work, so that is just stupid do it that way...
