Thanks very much to all of you for responding with useful info on this matter!

I must say that, apparently, my actions of configuring Wary 512 to use the internal modem of this notebook has had the effect of leaving me without audio & the capacity to connect via ethernet (up to yesterday) & today even Seamonkey was not responding well. In one 'wizard' there was a button for testing the audio syst. & below it was another for stoping the barks: it continued barking even after the Stop button was clicked many times. The only way I was able to connect was via wireless. After the barks, even Seamonkey stopped responding: my extreme reaction has been to delete both, the warysave & the SFS files. Let me see what's going to happen next time because now I'm again in PL511.

After I bootup Wary512 I'll try all the recommendations given in order & post the results below.

PS. To tempestuous --In your last post you mention another driver as well as a patch &, for me, it got a little too technical. I most say I didn't understand fully the info within this post; sorry.

Subject description: Have trouble need help
 

Hi rewin.

Thank you so much for all your work to make puppy such a great Linux distribution.
I am using Lupu 525 and have just bought a 3G modem. It’s being sold in Germany and comes from “klaremobil.de”. I assume it to be a “huawei-modem” but cannot be sure since “Pup Scan Interface Information” gave me the following info:

Manufacturer=USB Modem
Product=Modem Configuration
SerialNumber=1234567890ABCDEF
VendorID=1c9e ProductID=9603 KERNEL-MODULE=usb-storage

Following your thread I saved a fresh pupsave file and found, after rebooting, that the modem is being found by puppy. I know that, because an icon appears in the lower left hand desktop, beside the “sr0 - CD icon”. The icon will disappear again, , after only for 3 seconds.

I did a “pmodemdiag” and attach the file as you can see.

I tried to connect with “Internet by wireless GPRS modem” and found that I was able to put all the necessary data in but was still unable to connect.

==========

Now. Meanwhile I downloaded Quirky and found it to acknowledge the existents of the modem. However, after putting in all the data Quirky still won’t connect me to the Internet.

It may be worth wile to mention that I also run Ubuntu 11.04 and have no problems at all, using this modem.

I have attached a pmodemdiag - file. I hope this will be of interest and maby all this makes sense to you.

If I can be of any assistance at all, I would be happy to give it.

Thanks again.
All the best.
Ulrich

benny7440,
the technical issues I raised are for the consideration of rerwin and other developers.

All you need to do is follow rerwin's suggestions regarding "pmodemdiag".

For connecting with a wireless 3G modem,
Menu >Setup >Internet connection wizard >Internet by dialup analog or wireless modem

Use phone number *99# and leave name and password at their default generic settings.

I think you should verify your copy of 512. Check the md5sum of the .iso you downloaded against the value given on the site you downloaded from. Also verify the md5sum of the CD after you've burnt it. No point in spending a lot of time trying to get something to work when it's corrupt! Embarassed Embarassed

Today I spent about 90 mins trying to connect via ethernet or wireless (yesterday I did it using wlan) but it never gave up...

So, now I'm with PL525 (which for some reason refuses to remember that I'm installing a FF PET specifically for 525). It also insist in showing me at startup a configuration window that I've accepted many times already.

The requested info/files are included below as attachements.

The lsmod command's output can't be included as an attachement. By the way, in PL525, when I click on a text file it won't open anything. For I been able to paste the requested info below had to open first NicoEdit from the Menu, under the File tab click Open & search for the file + select all + copy. Does this has a quick fix? Have Geany in the open with menu options as well as the main Menu entry for it, but if I click on Geany nothing happens.

benny7440,
Sorry to be so long in responding to your posting. Lots of distractions. And, yesterday and today, some research time on this.
Quote:
I've a VAIO VGN AR250G Notebook - 512 MB RAM - running any of the following linux oss: (1) PL 431 (Live CD, only), (2) PL 511 (installed at sda2), (3) PL 525 (frugal) & (4) Wary 5.* (frugal -I'm using it right now).


First, the only puppy of those you mention that has a chance of supporting your modem is wary 5, preferably 5.1.2. Let me lay out the situation before making a recommendation.

- The agrsm support comes in 3 flavors, only one of which supports your HDA-type modem. That variant is "11c11040", which so far is available only in wary and two upgrade packages for 4.3.1. (The variant in PL525 is not that one.)

- As far as I can tell from googling, the latest version (20091225) was coded for ALSA version 1.0.20, whereas wary has 1.0.21. That is not to say it will not work in wary; but the maintainer has apparently not determined that it would work with 1.0.21, either.

- Furthermore, the agrsm HDA driver has apparently been made to work with kernels up to 2.6.31 and with some patch also 2.6.32. I do not know whether wary's version is 2.6.32-capable, but let's assume it is.

So, your next experiments should be on wary 5.1.2. That also has a fix so that blacklisting of agrmodem should work, when you try that. I am attaching 2 experimental packages to try one at a time, at a point in your experiments. The first applies a change I found in my googling, which may not help, but would confirm that its problem-fix is not the issue. The other blacklists the 2 agrsm driver modules, in case that might work.

Now, on to the experiments, using only wary 5.1.2:
1. Boot with pfix=ram, to start afresh. If modem detected, try connecting with pupdial (not the GPRS connect option). If that fails, stop right there and run pmodemdiag. Then exit from the connection. While still in pupdial, click on CHOOSE and ERASE... and exit pupdial.

2. Then install package agrsm_fix-1 and reboot, creating a pupsave file and giving it a name extension when so prompted.

3. When booted up with the "1" package installed, try the connection, as before, and (after changing the name of the first diag file a bit) run pmodemdiag. Exit from the connection . While still in pupdial, click on CHOOSE and ERASE... and exit pupdial. Then install agrsm_fix-2 and reboot.

4. After bootup, if a modem is detected, use pupdial to try to connect. Either way, run pmodemdiag again. Then exit the connection and pupdial and somehow post or PM the diag files, named to reflect their significance.

If none of these attempts work (probably due to the ALSA version mismatch), we can try again with an upgraded 4.3.1, to determine whether success is even possible with the versions in sync. (4.3.1 has kernel 2.6.30 and ALSA 1.0.20, so the mismatches could be eliminated as the cause of the failure to connect.)

Thank you for your interest in making your HDA Agere-chip modem actually work.
Richard

benny, it looks like that what rerwin got or setup for you to try didn't work at all?
their has to be something in either hardware or software that is blocking you from using that modem. thats the only thing i can come up with so far.

did you erase the previous driver after each test? that could've caused a problem loading the right kernel, but right now it could be almost anything.

i seen this very same problem on the freespire forums , when i was using it , and they had a heck of a time fixing it , and it seemed that agere wasn't cooperating with linux people at that time.

i'll keep an eye on this to see what happens, and maybe this will get fixed then it will help those with the agere card, but wait and see another card will have same problem. a vicious cycle of non cooperating hardware.

Thanks, tech_jnke2, for responding!

I probably should've said that I'm not booting from a livecd, but instead from a frugal install by grub. The part of booting up as <pfix=ram> was left out because I don't have the opportunity of intervening at the correct moment. I thought that if I deleted the previous pupsave file then just the "fix # (1 or 1+2) would be there for making its thing.

I probably need more advise as to how to do it correctly, if at all possible.

Addendum: Can that option of <pfix=ram> be included in the menu.lst file for the first boot? It occurred to me today that it might be an option but never have tried that.

I have uploaded the latest update of the usb_modeswitch function. This might be useful to anyone still not getting a wireless modem to connect.

Release Notes for Version 1.1.9, 2011/08/05:
    Added CiscoMode for Valet device;
    Additional checking for CDC ACM device to prevent erroneous driver loading after switching;
    No more post-switch check for access to initial device if target parameters are given.

New hardware IDs supported:
    0af0:7a01 - Option HSO device
    0af0:8600 - Option HSO device
    0af0:8800 - Option HSO device
    0af0:8900 - Option HSO device
    0af0:9000 - Option HSO device
    12d1:14b7 - Vodafone (Huawei) K4511
    12d1:14c5 - Vodafone (Huawei) K4510
    1307:1169 - Cisco AM10 "Valet Connector"
    19d2:1171 - Vodafone (ZTE) K4510-Z
    19d2:1175 - Vodafone (ZTE) K3770-Z
    19d2:1179 - Vodafone (ZTE) K3772-Z

A configuration file for ID 0471:1210 is deleted for the Vodafone MD950 (Wisue Technology). Apparently, its switching method was incorrect.

If your system would not benefit from this update, it can be skipped.

PostPosted: Mon 05 Sep 2011, 21:46    Post subject: modem-modprobe package updated to 2011905  

I have uploaded version 20110905 which has more bug fixes and usb_modeswitch 1.1.9 and its data base. It also might help with some sound issues. See the first message in this thread.

Its bugfix level is the same as for lucid pup 5.2.8, so it should not be applied to any lucid pup versions beyond 5.2.5. In fact, 5.2.8 is so good, that you might consider upgrading to it rather than updating the earlier lucid pups -- unless that just is not practical.

    Fix for possible buffer overflow
    Added some ZTE target IDs
    Modded udev rules to include "change" as trigger event

New hardware IDs supported:
    16d8:6804 - C-motech CDU-685a
    1da5:4512 - Qisda H21 "Flying Beetle"
    05c6:6503 - AnyDATA APE-540H
    19d2:1517 - ZTE MF192 (new variant)
    1bbb:f052 - Alcatel OT X220L

    19d2:0166 - ZTE MF820 4G LTE
    1de1:1101 - Philips PicoPix 1020 (LED projector)

If your system would not benefit from this update, it can be skipped. Do not use this update on wary 5.2, because its service pack already contains it and should be used, instead.

Hello dear friends!

Thank you all for this big work.

I’m new in Puppy Linux. I’m trying to connect my 3g Modem ZTE 628 but till now no success. I Installed  the latest update of the usb_modeswitch and the package 3G_pupdial-wireless-13.pet.

The result is:

--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet.tmn.pt"
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT*99#
--> Waiting for carrier.
ATDT*99#
CONNECT
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Tue Nov 29 10:41:02 2011
--> pid of pppd: 10341
--> Disconnecting at Tue Nov 29 10:41:43 2011
--> The PPP daemon has died: A modem hung up the phone (exit code = 16)
--> man pppd explains pppd error codes in more detail.

I attached “pmodemdiag” file expecting that you can help me because I like a lot this incredible Linux

Thank you Richard for your work
Best regards for all
