Hello everyone,

I am a new user of Puppy Linux. I downloaded Puppy Linux 4.1.2 and loaded yesterday on my PC from live cd.Everything is so far so good.

I have a Huawei CDMA Mobile C5320 which supports three modes:

1. USB Disk
2. Data
3. PC Sync

Windows XP detects it as HUAWEI USB CDC C300 modem in data mode and dial to the internet. Problem is that I cannot install my HUAWEI USB CDC MODEM (C300) on Puppy Linux. I tried the Connect panel on the Puppy Linux desktop, through dial-up,lan and wireless options. But my modem remains undetected. I put my mobile in data mode many times and restart PC many times but Puppy Linux cannot detect it. I clicked the Probe button many times, but Puppy Linux cannot detect it. As a result I cannot connect to the internet.

How will I set up the network connection with the aforesaid modem? Is there any other alternative way out? I am hopeful with Puppy Linux and I want to switch with it from Windows XP I am currently having. One thing to mention that I am novice in coding in Linux.

I would be grateful if you dedicated Puppy Linux users help me out for solving this problem with simple easy steps. I am yet to understand the confusing coding used to deliver commands in Linux overall.Then again I will try if coding has to be done. Please help me.

Thank You

Sorry to have overlooked your posting. If you are still interested, please install a dotpet from the 3G-wireless-modem project thread here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=266979#266979
You probably need only the file: 3G_pupdial-wireless-11.pet.

After downloading and clicking on the file in the file manager, reboot with the modem plugged in and it should be detected and shown in the connect wizard as ttyACM0. Then use only the "Internet by analog modem" option, which takes you to pupdial for connection.

That's how it is expected to work, but I see there will be a problem: That device is not associated with a driver in Puppy, so more work is needed for it. You could try forcing loading of the cdc_acm module in the BootManager (and rebooting). If you are lucky, that is all that is needed. But the fact that it is represented by three devices, suggests that its "mode" must be switched to activate the modem. Currently, the mode-switch utility does not recognize that device, but that can be remedied with a tool running under Windows. Working this out may not seem simple, but it would probably help many people with that modem, if we were to pursue it.
