Ubuntu Networking :: Usb-modem It Didn't Connect When Use Root Account
Jan 2, 2010
I have a problem in my usb-modem it didn't connect when I use Root account I use : HUAWWI E1550 HSDPA USB Stick System : Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit any one could advice me with the solution I couldn't do with mu root account ??
i'm running Kubuntu karmic and i've been using a 3G Huawei E1552 modem to connect to the internet, everything was going well when suddenly my modem stopped working. I've tried reconfiguring everything, i even reinstalled kubuntu from scratch with no success.Here's a part of my /var/log/debug

I reinstalled Slackware lastnight and was configuring Samba today and when I tested the config (I had just copied over my working smb.conf) I kept getting an NT_LOGON error when I run: PHP Code: smbclient -l MYSERVER from the root account after entering root's password.
I can log in through konqueror if I pass the credentials of the only user defined in smb.conf after I'd run smbpasswd for that user, and if I bring up a full terminal session for that user smbclient works fine, but it seems odd that root can't access the shares on the machine. I may have just never noticed this before because I usually test from a user account, but is this normal since I specifically only define one user where samba is concerned? I'm mainly asking because I was getting some unexpected write errors last night while I was installing the multilib libraries for Slack64 as root and I'm trying to verify everything.
I just got connected to Charter Cable Internet service a few days ago and I'm having a weird problem with my home network. Prior to this my network worked fine. On my network I have a desktop running Ubuntu 9.10/64 and Virtualbox with WinXP installed, an HTPC with Ubuntu 9.10/32 installed and a laptop dual booted with Ubuntu 9.10/32 and WinXP. The desktop and HTPC are hard wired to a wireless router and the laptop is wireless. The cable modem is hard wired to the router. I have samba installed and UFW is disabled. The problem is: with the cable modem turned off or on standby, all machines connect to each other and can transfer files, etc just fine but when I activate the cable modem all of the machines can connect to the Internet but the machines running Ubuntu can't connect to each other on the home network. If I boot the laptop into Windows, it can connect to the Linux machines just fine but if I boot it into Linux, it won't connect to the Linux machines but it can connect to the Internet and as far as the desktop, Ubuntu won't connect to the network but Windows running in the Virtualbox with bridged networking can connect to all of the machines.
I've just spent 2 days of extensive lurking how to solve this problem. Namely, i have ZTE usb modem, model MF626 T. The sofware provided with it works only under windows. What i tried first was to download hso.ko module (copied to the /lib/modules/`uname r`/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/). Then i downloaded hsolinkcontrol and HSOconnect. Unfortunately, i didn't get those /dev/ttyHS* ports that should appear. Only /dev/ttyUSB*. I blacklisted option module. Then changed occurences of ttyHS* to ttyUSB* in .py sources for HSOconnect. what i get is the popup interface GUI that has "connect" button disabled. Then i tried to set up connection via gnome-ppp. The usb modem was automatically detected as /dev/ttyUSB1. But when i supply telephone number that i got with the stick, i get message after "Sending: ATM1L3DT*99*" ->"no carrier found". Then i tried to copy the other two modules i found on the net-airprime.ko and usbserial.ko. I've renamed the option.ko and old usbserial.ko in order to use them later if needed. And also i've put in /etc/udev/rules.d/ some scripts i've found on net, used to mount and unmount ZTE modem. None of all that worked, and somehow i have the feeling i've messed up everything. What i just posted above is the sum of everything i googled out. I would be very glad if someone would help me out with this. I usually like to spend some time lurking and googling, but this is simply taking too much time...
My wireless modem has disappeared from the connection list at the top of the page. Strangely, a guest connection on that same modem is still visible but won't connect. I added the modem back in as a new connection and it was added to the list but it was greyed out and I still can't connect to it. The problem could, of course, be in the modem but I have no way to check that. Reset is not working. Lan connection to the modem works fine. This is the second time this has happened in the last week and I ended up reinstalling Ubuntu. This gave me back the wireless connection. I don't really want to have to do that again. Is there anything I can check in Ubuntu?
how to connect my modem to the Internet, the help file on my Ubuntu 9.10 does not match the features available. I am using a modem from Starcomms (a local CDMA services provider in Nigeria) made by Epi Valley.
I have been working for the last week trying to connect my serial hardware external modem (courier 56K v.everything) within an Ubuntu 10.4 environment. I live in the boonies where I am presently forced to use dial up, so this has got to work, else I cannot update Ubuntu or download software. After trying various suggestions, which my very limited Linux skills fail me, I opted for the suggestion that I download gnome-ppp, install and then use it. Seeing how I cannot download it through Synaptic Package Manager (which I was advised to but can't as it is my Linux computer that I am trying to connect).
I downloaded the zipped file (gnome-ppp_0.3.23_Oubuntu2.tar.gz ) to a USB stick, copied it to the home directory and then extracted it, wherein a new directory was created with many files in it. From here I have been unable to install it through the command line (not sure how), nor have I been able, as was suggested, to install it via the Synaptic Package Manager (can't get it to see the file, not sure how to). I need explicit (Newbie) instructions on how either to connect the modem without gnome-ppp, or instructions on how to get gnome-ppp installed.
i have a samsung laptop.i recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on it.
I have a huawei WA1003A modem .In windows i connect to my modem wirelessly using (WLAN) facility after connecting it shows it has limited connectivity with the modem and then i connect to BSNL using username and password..then i get connected to internet..
In ubuntu I conncted to internet using the cable by making a new dsl connection i provided my user name and password. and then i switched on the modem connected the cable and connected to dsl connection and internet was connected.. . i want to connect it wirelessly.
I have an ADSL Internet connection with static IP.I connected through PPPOE from my modem to my ISP.I need to ssh from outside of my home to my home, But i don't know to use which connection between my computer and my modem.(dhcp ,static , bridge or ....)
My router malfunctioned after a weird lightning strikes scenario so i tried connecting directly to the modem, i cant connect on my ubuntu desktop so itried connecting using my laptop with windows 7 and gets connected
I am using Linux Mint 9 Gnome: Isadora (since the same Network Manager applet is used in Ubuntu, I am asking the question here too)I was trying to configure my wireless card to connect my PPPoE connection by using the command pppoeconf wlan0 and also pppoeconf.I was not able to dial my PPPoE connection when connected via Wi-Fi. When I restarted my system, in the Network Manager, under Wireless Networks it says "Device not managed". Now I am not able to use my Wi-Fi card at all and cant connect to my Wi-Fi modem.
There is no hardware Wi-Fi switch, only the key combination Fn+F2 to enable or disable the wireless card.I have used the key combination Fn+F2 (which enables or disables the Wi-Fi card) many a times, but the same thing is displayed in the network manager.If I use LiveCD mode and use any distro even Isadora, the Wi-Fi works fine.My ethernet connection is working fine. I can connect to the internet if I connect my modem using Ethernet port.
I am trying to connect my q75 micromax mobile with my computer as modem using wvdial. But I could not connect as modem. I insalled wvdial, gnome-ppp and mode switch through synaptic package manager.
This is the message I got from terminal window. After this, there is no connection. I closed the terminal window using ctrl+C command. My mobile is dual sim phone. I want to connect through one ISP provider for GPRS. How to set this in wvdial configuration file.

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.
I'm setting up Ubuntu Karmic on my sister's old computer for my nephew, he's quite young so my sister asked to install some content filtering. I'll first setup an OpenDNS account and I've installed and managed to get dansguardian and squid working on a virtual machine to try it out. so far it's working pretty well, but I need to secure it form the inside out.
I was thinking of blocking specific outbound ports so he could not bypass the proxy. because by default the firefox configuration can be easily changed. so I have a couple of questions.
1. is it possible to block outgoing ports on Ubuntu? 2. is that the best method? 3. is there anything else I should be aware of to prevent subversion?
lastly, this question is probably unrelated to this board but I've set up a cron job to update a dynamic ip with OpenDNS, the problem is that the password is in clear text in the user's crontab, can I play with permissions? is it possible to run the job under a root account and deny read/write access to a normal user?
Earlier today I decided I wanted to switch back over to ubuntu, my internet was working fine, but as soon as i reformatted to Linux my modem stopped showing any lights under ADSL - TX and RX. and I can't connect to my wireless connection anymore. What should I doooooooo
i got the new Ubuntu 10.04 and manage to get my cisco aironet wireless adapter 340 series working on my wireless dlink modem , but the problem is when i have the wep security on the modem the cisco wont connect
I think I have configured GLink usb modem so far. But when I run wvdial command, I got the following. But I can not browse the internet. Other problem is when I try to use Gnome PPP dialer, it could not connect. Modem type is listed as ttyS0 and so on while I have setting in wvdial.conf ttyUSB0 so it does not support.
chitra@chitra:~$ sudo wvdial [sudo] password for chitra: --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60 --> Cannot get information for serial port. --> Initializing modem. --> Sending: ATE0 --> Sending: ATQ0 OK --> Re-Sending: ATE0 OK --> Cannot get information for serial port ..... --> Initializing modem.
My internet is provided by a 3g modem usb. I am sharing the internet connection through my desktop into a router and then to the rest of my Ubunut machines. Currently if I want to file share I have to go into the network manager and change the eth0 settings from shared to dchp automatic and then unplug the cable from the internet port on the router to one of the network ports. Is it possible to add another network card to the main machine and use that exclusively for either internet or file sharing.
