Unhappy Alcatel Speedtouch 330 Strangeness


I'm using an Alcatel Speedtouch 330 USB modem on Red Hat 9, and it's working, but upload speeds appear restricted to 29k. Download speeds are in the 450k region where they should be. In windows the upload speed is around 100k, which is about right, so I know my line and ISP are OK. Anyone have any ideas?

Let me see,
There's a really good page at http://www.webconexion.net/speedtouc...ch_330_usb.php
Follow that to the letter, but make sure you copy
/usr/local/share/doc/speedtouch/speedtouch.conf
into
/etc/
after you've unpacked and 'make'ed speedtouch-1.2-beta1.tar.gz and change its contents as per the webconexion page.
(/usr/local/share/doc/speedtouch/ is where speedtouch-1.2-beta1.tar.gz 'make's to)
Also, the mgmt.o file it talks about is quite hard to get hold of - use this instead: http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net/files/firmware.bin
(you don't need to get speedmgmt.tar.gz if you get this)
save that somewhere, and tell speedtouch.conf where it is in the MICROCODE="..." bit.
Apart from those two things, everything worked for me (apart from the slow upload speeds).

Good luck. Hit me back if it all goes tits up.

Try (instead of 3a)

$ cp /usr/local/share/doc/speedtouch/speedtouch.sh /usr/bin/speedtouch
$ chmod +x /usr/local/speedtouch

Then, to start the modem
$ speedtouch start

(You don't have to bother with chkconfig, but you will have to do $ speedtouch start every time you reboot, to get the modem online.)

Oh yeah, doing all this as root is probably likely to make things go a bit smoother.
