I am currently running puppy off a usb drive. I am trying to use the Huawei EC156 usb 3g dongle. It mounts a virtual cd to install the software(for both windows and linux). The disc boots up fine but puppy cannot detect the modem part. How do I connect without installing the useless software supplied by the network provider.

I'm guesing you need to install the software/drivers. Puppy doesn't out-of-the-box support 3g dongles.

You need usb-modeswitch software for the modem to be releaved with disk. Then you can use pupdial. In Precise 5.4.3 usb-modeswitch is built-in and your dongle should be supported as you can control at:

In other puppies you must install usb-modeswitch or compile it. There are some pets in this forum but I have always compiled it:

I haven't done this but I have seen various posts about how to do it (as long as you have time to wade through all the info to find out which is relevant to your situation...). There is some very good info in these threads:

Which puppy are you using? maybe your modem is not supported yet.. You need the latest usb_modeswitch 1.2.5. Or you can try with this line:
Code:
usb_modeswitch -I -W -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1505 -M 55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000
from here: http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=681&p=4656&hilit=huawei+ec156&sid=37a10c819ca6b31b3e729a0b7ab7643f#p4656
Can check it succes with the command 'lsusb', device should show as modem now. Then try to connect with pupdial.

Also you can look at this: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80012&sid=3e2adacfb98889d7992dc32ae0d6dc7a

Good luck!
