Fedora Networking :: 11 - Huawei E169 USB Modem Not Recognized

Nov 26, 2009

I am trying to get a Vodafone USB modem to work - Huawei K3765 (which is a rebranded E169). It's supposed to be recognized by the kernel and just added through Network Manager, but - no luck. I also installed vodafone-mobile connect from here: [URL] (as well as the other packages). What happens when I start it - it doesn't see the modem. It's seen as a CD drive, and clicking "eject", "unmount" or "remove safely" on it doesn't help - it disappears, then several seconds later appears as a CD drive again.

Fedora Networking :: O2 Mobile Broadband (Huawei E169 HSDPA) - Internet Loads At The GPRS Speeds Max Of 5kb/s

Dec 26, 2009

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?

OpenSUSE Network :: Huawei E169 Not Working

Feb 7, 2010

I've just installed openSUSE 11.2 (KDE 4.3) on my Dell 1720 lapcrusher (a fresh install - had no space to install next to my old openSUSE 11.0, so had to wipe that). I have a huawei e169 (e620) that worked fine in 11.0 (after some initial trouble/configuring, details of which I cannot remember) using knetworkmanager, but try what I might in 11.2 I cannot get this HSDPA modem to connect to my ISP (Virgin Mobile Broadband in Brisbane Australia).

I'm looking for some advice on where to start - first up the modem is detected fine in KDE 4.3, I can setup a profile with the correct APN "VirginBroadband" and "blank" inserted for username/password, and PAP enabled and CHAP disabled - thats pretty much how it was setup under openSUSE 11.0, and it will try to connect but always will not authenticate - I'm not sure at which stage of authentication the process goes pear shaped. I've tried different combos of turning on/off compression/echo options etc, turning on/off MSCHAP/MSCHAP2, but to no avail.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Huawei E169 Messing Around With Its Settings

Dec 22, 2009

I've just installed Open SUSE 11.2 on my acer travelmate 250 laptop. Everything seems to work ok, it starts and shuts down without any complaints. I inserted my Huawei E169 USB modem to connect to my Mobile Broadband account and discovered a new icon appeared in the system tray that looks like a mobile phone. So i started messing around with its setings but do not seem to be able to get the think to work.

I'm with virgin mobile broadband in Australia, i've checked their website and the APN is virginbroadband and the username and password are both: blank However it still will not connect.

OpenSUSE Network :: Serial Response Timeout With Huawei E169

Jan 4, 2009

I would like to get my Huawei E169 (aka. Vodafone Mobile Connect K3520, E620 etc.) USB UMTS/3G modem running with my openSUSE 11.1 x86 installation on my MSI Wind U100. The GPRS/UMTS connection works perfectly fine with the stand-alone application Vodafone Mobile Connect for Linux. However, there's the drawback that this app overwrites /etc/resolv.conf (leads to DNS issues if I would like to connect via NetworkManager again) and doesn't disable the off-line mode for Firefox automatically. Consequently, I would like to use NetworkManager for the GPRS/UMTS connection, too.

The NetworkManager configuration dialogue (I'm using the GNOME applet) seems to recognize the plugged USB stick without any issues (I get a radio button for "Huawei E620 USB Modem" in the respective add connection wizard). So I've created the configuration for my provider and saved it. After that I've tried to connect via the applet. However, approx. 2 seconds after I selected the connection, the applet says "Network disconnected" (German: Netzwerkverbindung getrennt) and the stick also obviously doesn't get connected (visible via LED). I created several new connections with different names, replugged the stick, rebooted with and without the stick plugged, but without any success. I also installed the special RPM package which is recommended in Huawei UMTS USB Stick - openSUSE, but - of course - the corresponding 11.1 package. I also used the application manually and got the following result: Looking up for HUAWEI modem and switching modem to BBO 06


Can this time out of the serial command be the reason for the unsuccessful connection? And if yes, how can I force the system to wait longer here? Moreover, I'm wondering, that the GNOME NetworkManager applet doesn't allow me to enter the DNS entries for my GPRS/UMTS connection. Where can I add these entries manually or is that not needed?

Ubuntu Networking :: Huawei E1552 Modem To Connect To The Internet, Everything Was Going Well When Suddenly Modem Stopped Working?

Fedora Networking :: ZTE USB Modem Not Being Recognized?

Nov 20, 2009

I have installed the KDE spin and am liking it so far. Except for the fact that I cannot get onto the internet. I rely on this ZTE USB wireless modem for internet and that just would not get recognized in Fedora. Plus, my Windows installation is down and I would love to keep it that way if at all possible.

I have followed a few instructions on this particular problem. I have modified the menu.lst file to account for the usbmodserial and product. The usb_modeswitch program has also been installed and the usb_modeswitch.conf file has been edited with the values I got from the 'lsusb' command's output.

But the curious thing is that when I actually execute the usb_modeswitch command, I get a message saying that there are no drivers for the ZTE device. Which means that I cannot go onto the wvdialconf part of it at all. Basically at this point I dont have a modem, according to Fedora. But it does get recognized as a ZTE device. That tells me that there is something right about what I have done so far and may only need to do a few tweaks here and there.

PS - I am based out of India and this is a Tata Indicom Photon (NOT Photon Plus) connection for which I have a USB device which acts as a modem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Huawei Modem In 9.10

Mar 22, 2010

I moved from Debian to Ubuntu a few months ago, with everything working fine, except my 3G modem (which worked with wvdial and umtsmon in Debian).

The packaging claims that it is a Huawei E160, but lsusb says different: E220 (12d1:1003).

I've followed various instructions from these forums and the wiki, and it seems to be being recognised as a modem (I can set up an O2 prepaid (UK) connection), but it refuses to connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: USB 3G Modem: Huawei E176 Not Working?

Jan 15, 2010

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.

/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.

Oh, and I forgot to say: I use Ubuntu 8.04

Ubuntu Networking :: Huawei E270 USB Modem Not Working

Apr 17, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To The Net With A Huawei E173 USB Modem

Nov 4, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Intermittent Connectivity Using Huawei E 1550 USB Modem On 10.4

Aug 18, 2010

I have a Huawei E 1550 USB stick modem and I'm trying to consistently get it working with Ubuntu 10.4. Using usb_modeswitch and wvdial I've got the device recognized as both a modem and disk drive and it seems to be working okay. wvdial usually is able to find the modem and connect and I can get online no problem. That's the good part.

However, after some amount of time (sometimes just a few minutes, sometimes hours, but it always eventually happens) the modem stops working and gets into a state where when I run wvdial it keeps looping and failing with:


--> No Carrier! Trying again.
--> Sending: ATDT*99#


Interestingly enough, when it's in this state I am still able to access the modem, and via AT commands am able to see that it has signal, can make phone calls, and can send SMS messages! It just can't seem to dial a data connection. Now, unplugging and plugging the modem back in almost always seems to solve this problem, only for it to fail randomly at some undetermined point in the future.

Why can't I just keep unplugging and replugging the modem, you ask? Because the computers (yes there are currently 9 computers and modems I need this to work on) are being deployed to clinics and offices in rural Africa where they will be locked in a box so they aren't stolen. I have pursued ways to shutdown power to the USB port in order to "fake" a hard pull of the cord in software, but haven't been successful so far. I've also tried reading as much as I can on the NO CARRIER response, but so far it's not turned anything up.

Fedora :: Configuring The Huawei E220 Modem?

Aug 23, 2009

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: HUAWEI E1630 HSDPA USB Modem Drops Connectivity

Jan 17, 2011

I recently got a HUAWEI E1630 HSDPA USB Modem and it was working fine until recently. Recently it starts to drop the connection and in /var/log/messages I can see a pppd error "Protocol-Reject for unsupported protocol xxxx". The protocol number is random. Only way to resume is to unplug and replug the device. The happens very frequently and hence the device is not usable.

To isolate the service provider end, I use the same SIM on a PROLINK HSDPA USB Modem and it works fine. Also I use a different SIM from another service provider in this device and the issue still exists.

I am on Kubuntu 10.10 with all the updates to date. Should I report a bug?

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.

Hardware :: USB Modem P300U Not Recognized As Modem Under Debian?

Jun 17, 2011

I have this USB modem P300U(SIM600 chip based) which works fine under wind@ws because it has it's own driver, but the clever seller told me that it worked under Linux as well. It was with Redhat 8 but I couldn't get redhat 8 to download. And until now absolutely false.

I have Debian with Kernel 2.6.32-5-686 I just want to send sms through this modem. It's not recognized as modem I'm frustrated because it's not useful for me if it doesn't work on Linux I looked for info but I can't make it work. What I get in my debian is:

OpenSUSE Network :: Huawei E1550 USB Modem In 11.2?

Mar 17, 2010

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.
