Done! Thanks again.

I hope someone else in Vietnam with this model can profit from this solution too. It's certainly one of the most popular 3G devices here, and it's only gaining in popularity. Hopefully there are some burgeoning linux users out there.

Just for additional info, I have similar device (Viettel/Huawei? Model: E1550) with VID:PID=12d1:14b5 but switch to different ID (12d1:14aa) to get it work as modem.

If you change the configuration from the previous post, you can use it with both modems:

Code: Select all

######################################################## 
# Viettel (Huawei) 

DefaultVendor= 0x12d1 
DefaultProduct=0x14b5 

TargetVendor=  0x12d1
TargetProductList="14a8,14aa"

MessageContent="55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000"
CheckSuccess=20

That's the setting now.

Thank you for the software!

Could you please add this to the distribution?

It still is missing in Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/usb-modeswit ... ug/1030531

It has been added to "usb-modeswitch-data-20120531", released on May 31st.
This version is in Debian "wheezy (testing)".

The current version is 20120815, which is in Debian "sid (unstable)".

No idea what version Ubuntu is using.
