ZTE MF180 + Gentoo

Hello, I'm trying to get this modem working with my gentoo b0x, maybe someone in this forum got it working.

I have been searching along Google, and not lucky, by the way can anyone tell me the kernel option to make it active this usb modem?

Thank you,

Hello, after a few hours I got it working, this is how I make it works:

We need to configure the kernel of our gentoo b0x, we give support to ip and ppp

Networking --->
Networking options --->
<*> Unix domain sockets[*] TCP/IP networking
Device Drivers --->
Network device support --->[*] Network device support
<*> PPP (point-to-point protocol) support
<*> PPP support for async serial ports
<*> PPP support for sync tty ports
<*> PPP Deflate compression
<*> PPP BSD-Compress compression

then we make active:
Device Drivers --->
SCSI device support --->
<*> SCSI CDROM support
USB support --->
<*> Support for Host-side USB
<*> UHCI HCD (most Intel and VIA) support
<*> USB Mass Storage support
USB Serial Converter support --->
<*> USB Serial Converter support
<*> USB driver for GSM and CDMA modems

finally we compile our kernel and reboot the system, and then we add our modem with our Network Manager (gnome) and it will work fine

By the way, after reboot, as root : eject /dev/sr0 (to make it work)

Suse 11.4 with mf180 stick

I am trying to use this same stick ( ZTE mf180 ) with Suse 11.4

I am not familiar with some of the commands that you have used in this post, but would they also work with the Suse 11.4 distro ?

Anybody got any ideas on this ?
