Huawei E1552

Post by 57bnl » Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:11 pm

How to work with the the Huawei E1552 under
UBUNTU, easy peasy, linux, distribution with wvdail:

STEP - by - STEP ->

INFO: Huawei E1552 exists in two froms:
a.) it starts up as a mass-store-device
b.) it starts up as a modem

If it starts as a mass-store-device
you have to switch the modem so that it will start up as a modem.

1.) STEP: what kind of modem do I have?
In the terminal - commandline: as root or sudo ....

--> $ sudo wvdial
you get the message:
" Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory "

this shows us that the USB-Modem was not deteted - that it is configured as a mass storage device and not as a modem

2.) now run the command
--> $ sudo lsusb

there you shoul finde the entry like:
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 12d1:1001 Huawei Technologies etc...

the first Nr. of the ID is the company/dealerds ID: 12d1
the second Nr. of the ID is the mode of your USB-Modem: 1446 or 1001
a.) 1446 = storage Mode
b.) 1001 = Modem Mode


So this mode we have to change:

It exists a tool called usb_modeswitch
you can download from:
http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswit ... l#hardware
read carefully how to install and configure


(short - key)
--> $ sudo usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 1446 -V 12d1 -P 1001



My try outs failed
So if there are any useres which solved the problem or
have further experience- please help to switch the thing stable.
If you have further inforamtion tippy, etc. pleas post I will brush up this posting

Hi
I installed a Huawei E1552 (or E1762 - don't know exactly which model it is) and it seems to work. I wrote some step-by-step instructions here:
