Hey Guys,

I've been trying to connect my 3 USB internet and it just hangs. I've tried various APN'S and phone numbers, perhaps every combination on the internet and it just wont connect. It hangs on the 'pid of pppd:'

Strangely i managed to connect once but never again. Please help!!

Running Lucid puppy and HUAWEI USB stock model E1550.

Thanks

I have experienced cases where I needed to connect the USB modem via a Windows machine to get it to connect properly under Linux. That said, I believe some of the mobile internet providers have systems that supports Windows only to make the INITIAL connection.

Once that is done it works all the time:-)

I can not explain why, but i think I even remember reading about it somewhere. I think that goes for the SIM card and not the modem hardware.

Just a guess and free to try:-)

Seems it often tries to be seen as a usb.

I'm sure most recent Puppies will run this adaptor.

Post your Puppy version.

OK.

" In my opinion the first port of call is to see if your modem is
being switched correctly with the right parameters,

(done using a program called usb_modeswitch).

For a Huawei E1550 the usb_modeswitch command is:

Code:

/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -W -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1446 -V 0x12d1 -P 0x1001 -M
'55534243123456780000000000000011060000000000000000000000000000'

Many thanks for the responses. I would like to change the model of the USB dongle i am using. It is now model MF112.

Interested in the mode switch, could be that as when i connect the USB stick, a cd appears on the desktop meaning its storage and not a modem?

any way forward with this?

Cheers

Mark

Also windows will recognize the storage part of the modem that contains the windows setup gui (and the driver) as CD drive ... at least it does for me ( Vista ) .

The kernel 2.6.30 does not show the sr# nor the inbuilt card-reader if so ( Puppy-431 ) . Since Kernel-2.6.31 they show up on desktop because the kernel creates entries for them in /proc/partitions and /sys/[class/]block .

*

You need to know the kernel driver needed for the modems . Some Puppy kernels don't create appropriate module-aliases and so such drivers don't get loaded automatically . If your /lib/modules/KERNELVERSION/ directory contains only 4 or 5 modules.* files then you might need to run
Code:
/bin/depmod-FULL  || /bin/depmod

to create the dozen modules.* files that probably might work better .

sh-3.00#
Code:
modprobe -l | grep usb | grep serial

Thanks,

I entered
Code:
/bin/depmod-FULL  || /bin/depmod
and was told that both the directories do not exist. I do not have a /KERNELVERSION/ in modules either. Totaly lost
