Re: E3372h-320 (update 2020 version of E3372) automatically switches itself into ethernet mode

Oh, I'm probably wrong then. I saw some devices with "ethernet networking" as their subclass and assumed that it was actually using ethernet. Yes they are using the ethernet protocol which doesn't have a cmd language so it is not a good protocol for modems. Am I right in my assumption that only 155...

Re: E3372h-320 (update 2020 version of E3372) automatically switches itself into ethernet mode

An auto-switching Huawei modem like ZTE does for some of their modems, it would be the first for Huawei but it is not impossible. Ethernet mode is not for MS Windows which only speaks NDIS or MBIM, and it is not for linux which has better protocols like NCM, MBIM, and QMI. It is for Apple Mac which ...

Re: Attempting to setup E5372s-32

Hey, I was wondering if you could help me with another issue, when i plug the device the interface shows up as wxx0c5b8f279a64. With it i can either set a static IP or fetch one from the device through dhclient and that's fine but when i boot the system the interface does not appear. I need to remo...

Re: Attempting to setup E5372s-32

Hey, Thanks for you help! After Josh reply i went to flash the firmware again and this time it is loading the id 12d1:1596 which is creating a ethernet interface. On that ethernet interface you will get a private IP address from within E5372 LAN where also the wifi clients will reside. The internal...

Re: Attempting to setup E5372s-32

12d1:1c05 is not an id that a working E5372 should get, it is a debug id which you have ended up with because something went wrong when you flashed it. The 3 serial interfaces are for testing, it is possible that the modem function (ttyUSB0) is fully working but you do at least need a ppp dial-up pr...

Re: Huawei E3372s-153

Your 1st switch cmd is successful, it switches the dongle from 12d1:1f01 to 12d1:14dc Your 2nd switch cmd fails because the dongle has already switched, it no longer has the usb id 12d1:1f01 Your 3rd switch cmd fails because you can not switch 12d1:14dc, that is the id after switching and you can no...

Re: 1&1 ZTE MF710M fails to set up

The response error is normal for ZTE devices, it did not prevent it from getting switched. It is possible that the dongles connection to the tower is controlled by a mfgr proprietary AT cmd on one of the serial ports so that you can start/stop the connection. You'll need a users manual or AT cmd man...

Re: 1&1 ZTE MF710M fails to set up

Nothing wrong, usb_modeswitch has done its job and switched the dongle from 19d2:1588 to 19d2:1592, it is not supposed to do more than that. The cdc_ether driver has created a usb0 ethernet device which you have to handle like you handle a wired ethernet connection, ie dhcp pull an ip address from i...

Re: Chinese 4G LTE USB Stick (Qualcomm MDM 9200): Serial AT commands anyone?

05C6:6000 is a Qualcomm transport Id which the company who bought them should have replaced with his own unique Id. Many of Qualcomm's customer have not done this and therefore there are umpteen different versions of 05C6:6000 some of them more than ten years old.. Siemens SG75 is one of the first f...

Re: Huawei E3131 what are my possibilities?

12d1:14db and 12d1:14dc are two commonly used USB Id's in HiLink firmwares, they are used by a couple of different dongles and they provide a cdc_ether net interface and no serial interfaces. One option if your head unit doesn't speak cdc_ether is to look on the net for another firmware (stick mode ...

Re: D-Link DWM-222 HW version A2 error in 2.6.0

Default vendor and product Id is not used inside the device config files from the usb_modeswitch datapack- the name of the config file holds the Id. The only time you need the default USB Id within the device config file is when you manually invoke usb_modeswitch from a cmdline with the -c switch an...

Re: Huawei E5576-320 setup

Yes the switch message I gave you is what usb_modeswitch uses for HuaweiNewMode. Looking at my interface listing for 12d1:155e I see now that neither huawei_cdc_ncm nor cdc_ncm will handle that dongle, the ncm interface has standard ncm class/subclass/proto attributes instead of Huawei proprietary a...

Re: Huawei E5576-320 setup

You will not be able to use the dongle in ncm mode (12d1:155e) under linux 3.12 without the huawei_cdc_ncm driver which was introduced in the end of linux 3 or in the beginning of linux 4. linux 3.12 just doesn't have it, it is too old. It is a small helper driver taking care of Huawei special ncm q...

Re: Auto connect: (PPP Widget 3 would like to access...)

So your choice is apparently not saved through a reboot, I don't know if that is possible so Josh will have to reply to you when he is back.
