Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Problem On 11.04?
Apr 30, 2011
Iam planning to use 3(operator) Mobile broadband in Sweden. I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 in my HP-Pavilion-dv2700-Notebook-PC. Iam not able to configure this mobile broadband(3 operator).
Earlier i was using Telia mobile broadband in Ubuntu 10.04 it was working fine. Now i have moved to operator 3 and also i installed Ubuntu 11.04. I added the profile Network->edit Connections-> Mobile Broadband (tab)i have given all right parameters. Still i didnt manage to connect. I feel like lost connection with the World without the internet.
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 have both a vodafone and 3 mobile broadband dongles. they both work out of the box, however i am only getting gprs, while i can get 3g/hsdpa using my windows box. is there any gui configuration manager or terminal commands i can use to set it to 3g/hsdpa only? im running ubuntu 9.10.
Just loaded Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell 5100, (XP finally got the bsod) I have verizon mobile broadband, all was very good until I realized I cannot connect wirelessly. The usb modem was not recognized, there is no indication of any wireless connection. There is no icon and nothing happens when the usb modem is plugged in. I have been working on this for hrs & hrs. I am a complete novice on Linux, but CompT1 A certified on PC's
I have an USB (Huawei 1751) modem for mobile broadband. I had it up and running in Ubuntu 9.10 but I had to clear the computer for various reasons. I have decided to only use LTS versions so for the reinstall I have used Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have downloaded and installed usb_modeswitch and can see that the modes is changed to the right value. After that I wanted to add a new mobile broadband connection in the network connections wizzard - but cannot see any settings for mobile broadband. I am sure it must be possible - but where is this function hidden in version 8.04 ?
I have just switched to Ubuntu from Win 7 RC. So far its been fun, learning to use terminal and all. But I have got a problem now I cannot find a solution to.
I am using 3 Mobile Broadband. The thing just worked - I plugged it in, created a new connection, modified config a little and was happily browsing.
However, it started acting out yesterday. When I boot the system with the modem plugged in, the USB stick is recignised and NetworkManager starts connecting (I have auto connect on). It then shows the "connected" message, and generally appears working fine.
On the other hand, I cannot open a single page in Firefox, it shows the default server not found page.
I used the approach Windows taught me: close, open, retry. I unmount the 3 Mobile Broadband drive, pull the modem out and reconnect it. NetworkManager then does it's job and this time everything works.
I nether had this problem in Win7 or Vista. It looks to me something goes wrong during the booting when the modem is plugged in.
I have bought reliance netconnect broadband+ 3.1 Mbps connection. I am provided Huawai EC1260 device to make the connection.But using ubuntu 9.1 I am not able to make the connection work. I have tested the device in windows XP and it's working fine there. I don't want to use windows and desperate to establish the connection in Ubuntu 9.1.
I decided to give 10.04 a shot, and upon first boot, I was able to setup and use my Rogers Rocket mobile broadband stick. When I rebooted, I found that it was in the network settings, but I was unable to connect, nor did it show up as an option in the drop-menu. I played with the terminal trying to see if anything was wrong, but everything seems normal, which is to say I don't even know what I'm looking for in regards to this type of connection.
I obviously know now that it works, I just don't know what made it stopped for the time being. I'm thinking of doing a fresh install over the current partition, and trying to work the issue from there.
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.
In a separate thread I discuss my issues with getting my Blackberry 9650 tethering with Verizon and Ubuntu 10.10 with bluetooth. I'm still hoping to get that working, but in the mean time, I've actually started to think about perhaps getting a mobile broadband card from a US provider separate from my blackberry anyway - preferably one that works right out of box with Ubuntu.
Does anyone here have any recommendations? I know there's a lot of compatible devices, but maybe someone here can recommend a provider (I don't have to stick with Verizon - willing to go AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.) and a USB mobile broadband device that'll work pretty smoothly?
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.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed as a dual boot on my Acer 5810T notebook. My problem is this, when I am connected to my home wifi connection (no internet, just used for printing) and to my mobile broadband (at&t tethered) neither chrome or firefox will download a web page. As soon as I disconnect from my wifi network, I can browse the internet fine. If I re-connect to my wifi network again the next time I click on a link nothing happens. Can I prioritize the connections so that the browsers look at the mobile broadband connection first?
I have a strange problem with my mobile broadband connection. I hope I am not the only one (so it will be fixed), but since I haven't found any others having the same problem yet, I am not so confident.I started using mobile broadband, via a HUAWEI E1762 HSPA USB stick since Jaunty. I've had the same problem in jaunty as I do now in Karmic. Although in Karmic, i've had additional problems (that problem i've found listed as a known bug).The problem is that when I get my mobile broadband to connect, it is sometimes, somehow, not fully connected. Symptoms are as follows:
1. panel icon shows connected and good strength (good) 2. skype connects, and I can chat and voip (good) 3. ping does not work (bad)
i recently installed ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop. everything is working fine except for my mobile broadband connection. i use a huawei ec1260 USB 3g modem to connect to the net. the OS detects the modem fine and the network manger applet prompts me to set up the connection as well i.e entering the username, password, number to be dialled etc. however when i actually try to dial the connection the applet icon flashes for a long while and a notification pops up saying connection disconnected. has anyone come across same kind of problem and solutions, if any.
Earlier i used the same modem in in karmic i was able to connect to net and even now i am able to connect using the modem in windows 7 as well
I have Ubuntu gnome 10.04 'lucid' and I can connect with Mobile Broadband internet by using my Nokia 5800 as an USB dongle by just setting the right "Mobile Broadband" settings parameters. It connects flawlessly.
Then I set the /etc/rfcomm0 file with the proper parameters with the Bluetooth MAC address and the proper channel and paired the phone with my PC of course.
But how can I enforce the network manager that it selects Bluetooth instead of USB ?
My friend switch to Ubuntu (he has a 9.10) and want to set up the mobile broadband. He has a usb modem stick Hyundai mb-810. We tried everything - from the usb-modeswitch to wvdial and nothing works. We have read millions of pages of tutorials and forums but still - nothing works. He is now thinking to go to Windoze XP and leaving the Linux community though he is impressed with the Ubuntu.
I bought the MF112 mobile broadband dongle from 3 and I'm pleased to say it worked pretty much straight out of the box! The only problem, well minor annoyance, is that as described here.[URL].. it detects as a CD drive which must be ejected before you can use it as a modem. When running Windows it does the same, and autorun kicks in to install the 3 software, so it's clearly down to the on-board storage.
My question is this.. is there any way to stop it detecting as a CD drive? My experience so far with Ubuntu tells me pretty much anything is possible with enough time and effort but I'm hoping I'm missing something and someone out there has a simple fix for this! I've been using Ubuntu for over 3 years now but I still feel like a beginner sometimes when it's something I haven't come across before Edit: Just to add that the on-board storage it mounts is read-only.
A word of warning to anyone else thinking of buying this, you WILL need access to either a Windows/Mac machine, an equivalent VM, or a local 3 store to retrieve your 'My3' password (for top-ups etc) as it can only be retrieved by using the 3 software. A slight pain, but takes seconds
i recently-ish bought a netbook, and a mobile-broadband toggle to go with it, and set it aside to use later. i promptly installed the Netbook remix on the laptop. Well, I goofed, and didn't notice until well after I bought the WAN toggle that it was made for windows.
so, I downloaded Wine in an attempt to run the start.exe and get my internet. the executable (and the entire drive, i found) are marked by ubuntu as read only. Is there anyway to change this to allow me to run the file? if i did, would it even work?
i downloaded ubuntu 10.10 for learning purpose. All goes well, i installed it successfully. The problem which i face is that when i connected my mobile broadband device, ubuntu detects it and i have succesfully made the connection. But the network Manager is showing "disable" Mobile Broadband connection. I tried to put a check on Enable Mobile Broadband but can't check it. So i can't access Internet in ubuntu. I think some offline package installation should be there to resolve the problem, or some console commands. I tried to use the (wvdial) which i use at Backtrack. but i think ubuntu did not have.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. I wanted to setup my droid incredible as a modem to connect via the builtin broadband connection under network manager. I searched around and found couple of ways using wvdial as well as a tunneling app. The funny thing is, that I was able to setup my phone as a usbserial device and use it ONCE to connect successfully via the built-in broadband connection setup method. But ever since, it has not worked . Currently I am running a fresh install of 10.10, and have tried to insert usbserial module for my phone in the kernel, but it does not work. The command I used :
Code: sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x00b4 product=0x0ffb I have not made this change permanent though. But whenever I run this and connect my phone with broadband connect enabled, it recognizes my phone however it uses a 'generic' driver according to the logs, and it never lets me enable Broadband Connection or connect successfully.
Im able to use nm-applet just fine to setup broadband card. Its a Sprint Sierra 598u. Im running Fedora 10 KDE version. Anyone know how to get it working? i tried the setup process but all it tells me is set up GPS or CDMA so i go CDMA for mine, but then it has some default name, and no providers, as the UBUNTU version did at least...i setup best i can but then after closing configs, i go to nm-applet icon in bottom-right and it doesn't show the mobile broadband connection, also any wireless connections don't work for some reason, but DO show up. just wont connect (which i got every so often when using ubuntu on the machine, was usually a switch off or restart away from fine
I have a question concerning mobile broadband connections: Is it possible to have multiple mobile broadband connections active at the same time?I currently have two cellphones connected to my Ubuntu box and both of them can successfully setup an Internet connection for my Ubuntu box (say connection X or connection Y), though not at the same time. Unfortunately both connections are very limited in speed (around 10kb/s each. And this is my only access to the Internet where I live). Therefore, I wish to use the two connections simultaneously to download files from the Internet (file 1 with connection X and file 2 with connection Y). Is this method of doubling my bandwidth possible in Ubuntu?
probably I have screwed myself. I tried to preupgrade to f14 and cancel it after some time. Now, I am facing a problem that I cannot access internet from mobile broadband; but I can access net while i am connected via ethernet or wireless. I have cleared preupgrade files with
Quote: yum clean all; yum remove @preupgrade
It can detect my HUawei modem and creating an IP as well. But no Internet.
I just installed Ubuntu a few days ago and am loving it so far. There is, however, one huge problem which is spoiling all my fun: I can't access my gmail.
I'm using a Huawei E220 USB modem with T-Mobile UK. Plugged it in and was very impressed when I could set up my connection with minimal fuss. When I try to load gmail though, I get stuck with the statusbar saying 'Waiting for www.google.com...'. All other sites work fine (including google.com), and I don't get this problem when connecting though the Web 'n' Walk software in Windows XP. Has anyone got any ideas on how I can start working this out?
