Debian :: Xfce Desktop - Mobile Broadband Not Recognized

Sep 21, 2015

Booting debian with xfce desktop (8.2, amd64) using a live cd of iso hybrid. While a wired network can be easily connected using network manager, it fails to recognize the mobile broadband (I am using a USB dongle). The network manager gui disappears after I select `Mobile Broadband'. Moreover, Code: Select allnmcli -p con does not recognize the gsm connection, but Code: Select allnmcli dev status returns that a USB gsm connection is present at ttyUSB3.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Not Recognized

May 12, 2010

I recently made a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 and my mobile broadband no longer works. When I plug it in, the set-up wizard does not appear, and even when I run the wizard manually, the modem is not recognised. I know the modem works as when the laptop ran 9.10 it all worked perfectly.

For the record, it is a Huawei E1550 and has 3 Mobile Broadband Pay-as-you-go.

Debian :: Mobile Broadband On Squeeze ?

Aug 7, 2011

I have an Asus K50IJ laptop and everything works great, but now I'm moving house and need to switch to a mobile broadband dongle. From what I can tell the major providers here in the UK don't support Linux, so I'm hoping someone can help me with the question of mobile broadband on debian and what does and doesn't work by default. I'm happy to get my hands dirty and keep learning about linux and debian, but I'm definitely still a beginner in both. I couldn't find what I needed searching the man pages, wiki or forum, but point in me in the right direction if you think I've missed something useful. Ideally I'd like to use Virgin Mobile so I've asked them for specs on the dongle they supply and I'll post that info when I get it. Any help would really be appreciated as I rely on the internet pretty heavily.

Debian :: Getting A Mobile Broadband Card To Work

Mar 19, 2011

Im running Pure:Dyne, an audio-centric distro, and so far I have not been able to get my usb modem to work. Im using a Huawei EC168 and my carrier is Alltel. Im totally new to Debian as well... Im doing this off of a live disc then I plan to install it once I know Ill be able to use my internet (its my only internet...) The card doesnt seem to be recognized other than as a storage drive or something, since its preloaded with the software for windows that comes with it.

Debian :: Android Tethering / Wired Changes To Mobile Broadband

Aug 27, 2015

I am trying to tether internet from my LG Leon to a new debian 8.1 install so i can install network drivers but i keep getting disconnected.After activating the tethering, it works fine, and appears as a "wired" connection in Network, after a minute it will always change from wired to "Mobile Broadband" and asks me to select my "Network". (Then the internet doesn't work until tethering is reset.) Is there any way i can stop debian from doing this? The silly thing the internet works perfectly until it shifts it like this.

Debian Configuration :: Mobile Broadband Disappears When Disconnect?

Apr 11, 2011

I have a fresh install of squeeze without a desktop environment. I then installed a basic gnome environment so I can choose my own apps ('apt-get install gdm3' pulls in enough for that). I then had to install some packages to get mobile broadband working:It all works fine until I disconnect it via Gnome network manager. I cannot reconnect using Gnome network manager because it doesn't show in the menu, but it does show while I'm connected. If I pull the dongle out and plug it in again, it reconnects without issue.I think I may be missing some packages, but I don't know what. I tried usb-modeswitch, but no change

Debian Hardware :: Insufficient Privileges For Mobile Broadband Dongle

Dec 9, 2014

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:-

"Insufficient privileges"

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)?

Debian Configuration :: Mobile Broadband Dongle No Longer Ejecting "zero CD"

Jan 18, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer AspireOne yesterday, and was delighted to see that my ZTE MF627 broadband dongle (from 3 UK) appeared to work "out of the box". I wasn't able to connect due to lack of signal, but the behaviour was as I expected. (The dongle is one with a "zero CD" that needs to be ejected before the modem itself can be accessed. Recent versions of udev are supposed to do this automagically.)

However, when I tried to use the dongle today, I was unable to make it work. It appears that udev is no longer ejecting the zero CD when it is inserted, but is instead detecting the modem as a (non-functioning) serial port.

Here is the output from /var/log/syslog for the "successful" attempt. Note the disconnection at 4769.479857 which is followed by reconnection as a different device:

Fedora :: F14 Updates When Using Mobile Broadband?

Nov 7, 2010

In the previous versions of Fedora, the check for updates when connected through mobile broadband appeared disabled, which made sense as I don't want updates when connected through a mobile phone but will wait until I'm connected through either ethernet or wifi.

Took my laptop into work on Friiday (9am Friday is the time concert tickets go onsale). Connected to mobile broadband using Fedora 14 and got the updates available icon, surely this shouldn't happen?

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce 4.6 Won't Remember Desktop Settings

Mar 3, 2011

My Googling about this said to make sure xfdesktop was running. I have.Changes made to the panel, to startup and session persist.But number of workplaces, wallpaper, font, theme and so on revert to what they were before. These settings are from when I used Xfce before in Ubuntu 8.04. (My /home dir is on its own partition and I like to keep all my config files for apps I have used and might want to again.)I suspect I might need to delete a config file but I'd rather not undo all of the other settings that do work. Which? Or is it something else?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Use CDMA 1x Mobile Broadband?

Jun 30, 2009

I tried at Fedora 10, didn't work, and then Ubuntu 9.0.4, in the hope of it may work, my CDMA 1x Mobile broadband.( it works well under Win XP). and it didn't work.And then it comes the Fedora 11, still the same problem.

Seems Linux cannot recoginize my CMDA 1x Mobile Bbroadband, becuase the newwork manager doesn't pop up with messages of detecting a new hardware.

And when I run the desmeg:

usb usb1: New USB device found, idVendor=1d6b, idProduct=0002
usb usb1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
usb usb1: Product: EHCI Host Controller
