Hello,

- Trying to get my 3G device (3G Option Icon 225) working here and searched this forum.

found out that i needed to run a tool named "usb_modeswitch"

witch i have installed / and run and response is:

# usb_modeswitch

* usb_modeswitch: tool for controlling "flip flop" mode USB devices
* Version 0.9.5 (C) Josua Dietze 2008
* Works with libusb 0.1.12 and probably other versions
"
Looking for default devices
Found default devices (1)
OK, found default device not in target class mode
Prepare switching, accessing latest device
Looking for active default driver to detach it
OK, driver found ("usb-storage")
OK, Driver "usb-storage" successfully detached
Setting up communication with device
Trying to send the message
OK, message successfully sent.
-> See /proc/bus/usb/devices (or call lsusb) for changes. Bye



Then i looked in /proc/bus/usb/devices:

T: Bus=07 Lev=03 Prnt=07 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 11 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0af0 ProdID=6971 Rev= 0.00
S: Manufacturer=Option N.V.
S: Product=Globetrotter HSDPA Modem
S: SerialNumber=Serial Number
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr=500mA
I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=hso
E: Ad=83(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=03(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=85(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 16 Ivl=128ms
I:* If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=hso
E: Ad=84(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=04(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms


Then it tested to type:

# modprobe usbserial
# modprobe usbserial vendor=0af0 product=6971

But then the modem is not attached to any /dev/ttyUSB0 port?

/var/log/messages tells me this:

Jul 8 10:28:42 (none) user.info kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial
Jul 8 10:28:42 (none) user.info kernel: USB Serial support registered for generic
Jul 8 10:28:42 (none) user.info kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic
Jul 8 10:28:42 (none) user.info kernel: usbserial: USB Serial Driver core

what should i do now / test ?

Guessing the modem needs to be attached to one of the /dev/ttyUSB ports so i can use wvdial to connect ?

Thanks for help,

Best regards,
Johan

Hmmm run lsmod in a terminal and see if the 'option' module is loaded.
If not try
modprobe option

not an expert but have had connected using a modem stick and 3g phone so far.

- Can any puppy expert convert this installation package (that works with Ubuntu) work with Puppy?

http://www.linuxhorizon.ro/icon225.html
http://www.equinoxefr.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/icon225.tgz

- Seems some extra module needs to be installed + loaded.

Thanks for help,

Yes, we get a "how do I connect with my xxx wireless modem" question about once or twice a month.
These questions should certainly be directed to rerwin's "Integration of 3G Wireless Modem Autodetection" thread.

Well that icon225 driver package includes source code for the hso driver, which rerwin already provides.

Hello,

- Thanks Muggins

- Actually was reading that but was lost in all the 15 pages there - thought it was absolete.

There should be some sort of summarized - man page for this and simillar questions.

Where it sorts things into date + asked questions - commonly asked questions.

But will read that post again.


Thanks for help,

Best regards,
Johan

divisionmd,
So, how did you make out with the 3G project? I hope you were able to conclude that for your modem, you need to install only the 3G-wireless-pupdial, hso-udev, and hso dotpets.

I am especially interested in your particular modem because I suspect a problem to arise whenever you migrate to a later-kernel version of Puppy. But first, did you succeed with automatic detection of the modem? At some point, could you try Barry's latest test puppy (ppa-422, ppa-423) with the later (2.6.27+) kernel to see if the modem is still detected. My concern is that the hso driver may not get loaded, because the usb-storage driver would be substituted for it. If that is the case, I will need you to help me test a workaround for that error.

Apparently, your modem (ID 0af0:6971) is the only one with this problem. If you see this problem, please post the files /tmp/udevtrace.log, /tmp/udevtrace-modem.log, and /tmp/ozerocdoff.log, so I can work out the fix. Thanks
Richard

divisionmd!
I have this modem also and have tried too much!!
In puppy 4.2 it was detected and I got it almost to work.
In puppy 4.3 u should not need extra pets, but it is not detected for me.
So I will tell u when I get it to work and hope u tell me if u get it to work.

lgjb,
I may be able to help you if you would send me the diagnostic file produced by the pmodemdiag command. Boot up puppy 4.3.1 and pfix=ram, with the modem plugged in, and then run the tool. In a console, type:
pmodemdiag
and follow its instructions. Please send me the generated file as an attachment to a PM. Thanks.

lgjb,
Thanks very much for your diagnostic file. It exposes an omission from some special logic for these "hybrid" modems (storage+modem devices).

I have added the driver for your modem (hso) to that logic, so the driver should load. But that may be only the first step in getting the modem to work. Please download and install the attached dotpet and retry your test with it However, I see that you also have a built-in Conexant modem that gets detected. Your USB modem should override that selection, but you will first need to "erase" the ttySHSF0 modem from pupdial (probe > ERASE). After the installation and the erase, reboot to see if the HSDPA modem is detected, as ttyHS0. Proceed as far as you can to dialing and connecting.

Whatever happens, could you again obtain a diagnostic file and post it? This is the first opportunity I have had to test the HSDPA support with a modem, so your assistance is crucial. Thanks.
