Networking :: Wireless Network After Installation Of Mobile Broadband Dongle
Jun 28, 2011
I have a Acer Aspire running dual boot Ubuntu 9.10 and Vista. Although it has an Atheros wireless card (AR5001 according to linux, AR5007 according to Vista) until recently I didn't have any apparent problems with it.I installed a ZTE MF112 Mobile Broadband Dongle. Now I am experiencing great difficulty in communicating with my wireless router (with both LAN and WAN traffic). Connecting to the network in the first place appears to happen quite smoothly and my computer obtains a DHCP IP address. However the ping response times are measurable in seconds rather than the milliseconds I would expect, and any traffic across the network crawls, or just times out and fails.
I do not believe it is the router at fault as two laptops, both also with Ubuntu, can connect to it fine and swapping it out for another router does not fix the problem either. Also there is no problem connecting from Vista.I suspect that installing the dongle has altered something which has made the bugs in the wireless card/drivers apparent and that's where I need some help.
I had previously been sharing my ethernet connection over wireless using Hostapd & dnsmasq on my headless server as this tutorial shows: here which had been working fine. I now wish to share my USB mobile broadband over the wireless. I using a ZTE MF112. I was able to get the connection working using the application wvdial. - Firstly I had to create a hard link between /dev/gsmodem & /dev/modem - wvdial then made a new connection ppp0 which would work for internet access.
Changing the interfaces to have the br0 port like so: Code: iface br0 inet static address 192.168.1.1 network 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 bridge-ports eth1 ppp0 wlan0 Flushing the IPTables & then adding:
Code: iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -s 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp0 -d 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 -j ACCEPT iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
Doing so works fine, but I'm not entirely sure how to make this all automated. I could try making a script to launch, but I don't have a huge amount of experience writing scripts. Is wvdial the best application to use? Keeping in mind I'm using a headless server. I use Squeezebox server & the scrobbling didn't seem to be able to connect to last.fm. Do I need to specify which connection Squeezebox uses?
I few days ago I bought a mobile broadband, with dongle model Huawei e1820. I have no problem connecting to the internet. The settings in network manager are correct. But when I use the modem with high traffic for a while, like streaming, the speed gets slower and slower until finally the modem shuts down and restarts itself. After the modem restarts, it connects to the internet again, but now the speed is terrible. And if i continue using high traffic it will restart itself in a matter of minutes. But if I plug it out and don't use it for a while, the speed is back to "acceptable". For a while...
I'm using fedora 15, and have also tried it on Ubuntu Natty with the same result. Reinstalled usb_modeswitch. configured usb_modeswitch with all the guides on the web. No results.
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.
I have internet access using mobile broadband and i also have a wireless network for home usage without internet access.
When my wireless network is connected every application in ubuntu (Meerkat) tries to use it for inernet access (as neededobviously). As soon as i disconnect from the wireless network (and assuming the mobile broadband is on) everything has access to the internet again using the mobile brodband.
How do i tell ubuntu that i don't want it to use my wireless network for internet access?

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:-
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)?
I have use my e169 mobile broadband dongle with Ubuntu without trouble.With Ubuntu network manager I can connect easily. Few days back I want to try for Kubuntu and I installed it through Ubuntu.Now I can log to either Ubuntu or Kubuntu.But when I connect to Kubuntu I cant connect to Internet with Kubuntu network manager.When I try to make a usb disk with kubuntu I realise that my usb dongle detected as a disk.How should I connect to Internet by using my usb dongle.
I have u usb 3G stick and I configured a mobile broadband connection to connect to the internet.I filled all details and saved the connection.Now I clicked on the network manager icon in top right corner, but there was no connection with the name I just created.Again I checked in edit connections dialog box and found the connection there.Now how do I connect to this newly created connection while there is no option in network manager?
I just got a new Asus Eee 1001P, and the wireless isn't working at all. I had an Asus EEE 1005HA before that and since both use the AR8132 network card I hoped it would be the same problem as with that, where installing the backports fixed the problem. However, that doesn't do anything. With the 1005HA the connection was only flaky and disconnected a lot, but the 1001P doesn't find any networks to connect to at all. Also, the mobile wireless will connect only once and after disconnecting every attempt to reconnect ends in that connection symbol spinning wildly until I tell the network manager to disconnect. On Kubuntu it doesn't even connect once.I never had that problem with the 1005.
I am having problems with my 3 dongle- when I connect it to my netbook it flashes green so it detects a 3G network. However there is nothing in network manager enabling me to choose the mobile broadband so I can't use it. I know there should be an entry "mobile broadband" after the wireless networks listed.
I know the dongle works because I have previously used it successfully- I was using Linux Mint 8 and have now updated to version 9 and when I have tried to use it have been unable to do so.
I have gone into the connections and my 3 connection is present but there is no way for me to select it in network manager.
I have a broadband mobile modem iCon 225 (Option) with SiMobil provider (Slovenia). I run ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). I connect to the internet without problem. After a few minutes, the modem lights start signaling that there is no connection, but the network manager shows connected status. I have to reconnect the network manager to regain connection. After about a dozen times of reconnecting like this, I have to reboot the system, as it won't connect, even if I unplug and replug the modem.
I've noticed these frequent disconnects have started a few days ago. I did experience disconnects in the past, but as nearly often as this. I can't attribute disconnects to activity/inactivity, as they seem to happen no matter what I do.
I am trying to use my tmobile 8320 blackberry as a modem I hook it up through the USB and the phone is recognized I go into network manager to enter the settings for my Apn and Number to dial to and when I try to enter the Network to connect to the apply button goes away and it won't let me go past that point is this something screwed up in Ubuntu
is there any tool (terminal command preferably) which can show the frequency and the type of the connected mobile broadband network. I mean HSDPA/GPRS etc and 900/2100MHz. At my country there are 2 frequencies used for UMTS, 900MHz for rural areas and 2100MHz for urban and I need to know what type is the connection and what is the used atm frequency. I am using wvdial for connecting to the internet.
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:

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 using samsung S3310 with aircel when i am connecting new mobile broadband connection my device is not identifying ,so that i cant connect Internet.but everything okay i mean settings in mobile and pc. for same connection i used Nokia mobile its identified and Internet was connected but samsung mobile is not identifying in terminal i typed LSUSB my device is shown in that.
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 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?
It has been haunting me for weeks and I haven't been able to fix it so far: When I installed the wireless driver 43XX series on my laptop using a wired internet, I saw the wireless network for a while and after I rebooted my system, My kernel(31) got corrupted and I got error "kernel Panic (and some sync error)",Thus I started using an older kernel(14),Now When I install wireless driver or mobile broadband driver(wvdial), they get vanished after the reboot and my mobile device modem isn't detected.But they are installed in my system(as shown by synaptic package manager but doesn't seemt to work) I desperately want to use mobile broadband.
I want to use my laptop to share network for VoIP adapter. I'm using mobile stick as well as wi-fi and Network manager under Gnome 3. Voip adapter asks for address via DHCP to gain the access to the server some where in the other side of the world.
I need help with connecting to cdma mobile broadband for a tethered samsung phone. When I first installed Suse the phone icon on the network manager icon was all i needed to do to connect to the cdma network.After rebooting later the icon is gone and i cannot manage to connect. The connection is still there, but it is as if the computer no longer recognizes my phone as a modem. Well sense i just installed i figured lets try reinstalling to see if it was a bad installation. It happened exactly the same again. If anyone has any idea how to get network manager to allow me to connect to the internet again i would be grateful.
I connect to the internet with a mobile broadband dongle. I would like to change the dns settings as page loading seems to be running slow. However, there is no ip tab associated with mobile broadband in the knetwork manager module. There is however for my vpn connection. I have found reference to the ip tab in other postings but alas I am stumped. Is it possible that the mobile broadband connection does not load that tab whereas users on wireless or ethernet have it? That is the only solution I can think of.
Problems with setting up mobile broadband in KDE4? Than use this instruction: openSUSE starter: Step 2. Need mobile broadband? Use the GNOME applet to make the GNOME nm-applet work under KDE. With this nm-applet I have set up mobile broadband within couple of seconds.
