PostPosted: Thu 04 Jun 2009, 00:44    Post subject:  Update! Pentech UM175 modem works in puppy 4.2.1
Subject description: Pentech USB Modem with Verizon Broadband tried in three PCs
 

Puppy 4.2.1 has detected the pentech USB Modem as \dev\ttyACM0

It did say WARNING! LINE "115200"
in /etc/ppp/options may conflict with wvdial!

But I went ahead and tried it anyway.

At first it had established a connection and I was as happy as can be, (doing the hammer dance in the living room), but when I sat back down the modem had disconnected (on its own). and now it keeps saying "No carrier".

I have PupDial checked for stupid mode

the number dialed out is #777

user is the phone#
pass is vzw

But it still keeps saying "No Carrier" after it hung up on me the first time.

ATDT#777
CONNECT
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Thu Jun 4 11:01:00 2009
--> pid of pppd: 7352
--> Disconnecting at Thu Jun 4 11:01:30 2009
--> The PPP daemon has died: A modem hung up the phone (exit code = 16)
--> man pppd explains pppd error codes in more detail.
--> Try again and look into /var/log/messages and the wvdial and pppd man pages for more information.
--> Auto Reconnect will be attempted in 5 seconds

There must be something I can do to keep the modem from hanging up the phone. Any help in fixing this would be most appreciated.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update! All you have to do is use windows to activate your modem with the Verizon CD and then go back to puppy and your good to go. You don't need to anything but add the following:

The number dialed out is #777
User is the aircard phone#
Pass is vzw

Just don't make the mistake that I did and assume that its already activated because its not until you use windows to activate it.

Puppy Rocks!!!!!!

PostPosted: Thu 04 Jun 2009, 21:05    Post subject: ISP modem dialup asyncmap issue perhaps?  

Try the following:

open the file /etc/ppp/options in your favourite text editor (e.g. leafpad or geany)

Look for the line: asyncmap 0
Immediately after that, on a new line put in the following: -am
(i.e. a single minus sign followed by the letters a and m, with no spaces in between)
[be careful you don't overwrite any already existing config info (such as the name=...) that is already in the options file]

Now try connecting again to see if your machine now connects okay.

Thanks for the help mcewanw. Sorry I couldn't respond sooner but I was not able to try it out until today (Its a friends modem and trying to get him to use Puppy).

So I did what you had suggested and now it lists two new options.

APN: _______________ and PIN:________________.

Verizon is a CDMA carrier and should not need to enter any APN information. So I first tried leaving both the above blank but that caused an authentication error.

the connection status log says:

--> The PPP daemon has died: Authentication error.
--> We failed to authenticate ourselves to the peer.
--> Maybe bad account or password? (exit code = 19)

Is it possible that I need to enter a PIN # or could it be some other problem?

Again thanks for the help.

Sorry, I don't know about that (APN and PIN).

Maybe the -am option isn't what you want; I just suggested it because the original log error messages looked very similar to ones I've seen with an ordinary 56K dialup modem (not broadband).

Hopefully with some experience of the type of modem you are using will come up with something based on all your results.

I just remembered the following link; perhaps something there will help you (I maintain the pppsetup extension for tinycore repo which is why I keep an eye on such stuff even though most of it doesn't apply to my own set up):

http://tinycorelinux.com/forum/index.php?topic=458.msg2866#msg2866

also see:

Do post a solution if you find it.

if you use alltel instead of verizon, but still have the um175:

phone number: #777
username: xxxxxxxxxx@alltel.net
password: alltel

i use this in puppy 4.2.1 daily for approx. 18 hours. it's just about as fast as dsl.
