Hallo,
I have a Huawei E220 Vodafone " Internet Connect Box" This works fine for windows and OSX but I want to use it for my puppy. I found a link
http://the.taoofmac.com/space/Huawei/E220 with some info which I couldn´t work out how to use for Puppy. Has anyone used this equipment successfully on Puppy--can anyone assist ?
TIA
Martin

EDIT: totally redone this Post.

The point is, puppy detects an usb-storage (which contains the drivers for windows) and stops detecting. But the device not detected is the actual modem ... so you have to do following:
Code:
rmmod usb-storage
rmmod usbserial

the "rmmod usbserial" SHOULD produce an error,
Code:
ERROR: Module usbserial does not exist in /proc/modules

then, plug in the modem.

type
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb

this file lists all usb-devices. look for huawei, and notice the line:
Code:
P:  Vendor=12d1 ProdID=1003 Rev= 0.00


now, enter
Code:
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1003

(or you according product number)

/var/log/messages should show something like this:
Code:
Mar  9 21:10:09 (none) user.info kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usbserial
Mar  9 21:10:09 (none) user.info kernel: drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for generic
Mar  9 21:10:09 (none) user.info kernel: usbserial_generic 1-1:1.0: generic converter detected
Mar  9 21:10:10 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-1: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0
Mar  9 21:10:10 (none) user.info kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usbserial_generic
Mar  9 21:10:10 (none) user.info kernel: drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core


yes! The modem is now /dev/usb/ttyUSB0.

playing around for a while, I got it!!!

Code:
Mar  9 19:59:57 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 8
Mar  9 19:59:58 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Mar  9 19:59:58 (none) user.info kernel: usbserial_generic 1-2:1.0: generic converter detected
Mar  9 19:59:58 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0


put the wvdial.conf from the first post on http://www.mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php?t=21726 (well ... ok: here is the direct link: http://www.insync.za.net/3g_docs/wvdial.conf ) into /etc e.g. /etc/wvdial.conf

edit the huewei_e220 - section from the wvdial.conf above to:
Modem = /dev/usb/ttyUSB0

it connects to the modem!
Code:
sh-3.00# wvdial huewai_e220
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.42
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Modem not responding.
--> Cannot open /dev/usb/ttyUSB0: No such device
--> Cannot open /dev/usb/ttyUSB0: No such device


the "Cannot open" lines are because at the same time the following happens:

Code:
Mar  9 20:01:27 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 8
Mar  9 20:01:27 (none) user.info kernel: generic ttyUSB0: generic converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
Mar  9 20:01:27 (none) user.info kernel: usbserial_generic 1-2:1.0: device disconnected
Mar  9 20:01:47 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 9
Mar  9 20:01:48 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Mar  9 20:01:48 (none) user.info kernel: usbserial_generic 1-2:1.0: generic converter detected
Mar  9 20:01:48 (none) user.info kernel: usb 1-2: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0


so, at the time the wvdial tries to connect, the usb modem disconnects, and reconnects some (usually 10 to 20) seconds later. What could I do?

after trying to connect once, and letting the device reconnect (by itself; it does this after 10-20 seconds after disconnecting), is does not disconnect any more. But it still does not respond:
Code:
sh-3.00# wvdial huewai_e220
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.42
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Modem not responding.
--> Cannot open /dev/usb/ttyUSB0: No such device
--> Cannot open /dev/usb/ttyUSB0: No such device
sh-3.00# wvdial huewai_e220
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.42
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Modem not responding.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ

try to have the modem connected at the time you boot - this worked for me!

then, create a file "/etc/ppp/peers/wvdial" containing the line "defaultroute" (I don't know if this file can also be empty - just try)

do the above changes (change /dev/ttyUSB0 to /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 in wvdial.conf)

then, "wvdial huewai_e220" - it worked for me! (If it doesn't: make sure the pin is deactivated - can be done using the windows software, or edit the pin in the [pin]-section of wvdial.conf and call "wvdial pin huewai_e220")

Hallo,

I am totally new to Puppy. I installed puppy to the harddisk

What I have to do, that the modem is recognized correctly at boot? I do not want to type

modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1003 (thats the only thing you have to type)

EDIT: strange - this works only, if you reboot without putting another networkcard in the meantime to the compter - if you do so - you have to type also

rmmod usb-storage
rmmod usbserial

EDIT

again.

If you have the modem work correctly, it is easier to connect through ppp and chat-scripts

there is a very good howto here: http://linux.frankenberger.at/Huawei_E220.html

you only have to change /dev/ttyUSB0 to /dev/usb/ttyUSB0

I'm trying to setup 3G USB modem under puppy. wvDial gives "Modem not responding" after trying to send ATZ initializing command.

The system's messagess log file gives me something similar to this:

Mar 9 21:10:09 (none) user.info kernel: drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for generic

Mar 9 21:10:10 (none) user.info kernel: drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core


I have the feeling that the use of "generic serial convertor" is the problem. So, any help on how to move one step farther to have something similar to this:

Thank you.
