Installing Hurricane9601 (H9601) USB ADSL Modem in Ubuntu
 
Hi .... I've been using Linux for sometime but I'm not a pro at it. Anyway, recently got this Prolink Modem and failed to get it installed in Intrepid.

I have the uncompiled Drivers supplied with the CD which i failed to compile using make. I get an error. This is what i get when i try to compile the driver.

Appreciate the help of all you Linux People out there. Thanks in advance.
PS: i havent installed the firmware or anything as i just followed the instructions in the README file that was in the uncompiled driver folder. Should i install the firmware as well? if so HOW?

AND also after lsusb i get
002 Device 005: ID 0915:8104 GlobeSpan, Inc. DSL-200 Modem

STARHARVEST 04-03-2009 09:59 AM

find out the Chip on which modem is based.
also check out if linux headers installed or not.
what type of Ubuntu Itrepid? cd or dvd installation?

Errm how exactly can u find the chipset mate? i ran lsusb and it says Globspan, Inc DSL200 Modem. I installed Ubuntu from a CD (burnt from an Image i downloaded).
I thinks headers are installed because the headers were required for another modem app called UbuDSL i used to use.

STARHARVEST 04-04-2009 03:51 PM

well, now I can just suggest you start from here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post3227518

Welcome to the Roaring Penguin PPPoE client setup. First, I will run
some checks on your system to make sure the PPPoE client is installed
properly...

Looks good! Now, please enter some information:

USER NAME

>>> Enter your PPPoE user name (default gq2220206@sltadsl.lk): gq2220206@sltadsl.lk

INTERFACE

>>> Enter the Ethernet interface connected to the DSL modem
For Solaris, this is likely to be something like /dev/hme0.
For Linux, it will be ethn, where 'n' is a number.
(default nas0): nsa0

Do you want the link to come up on demand, or stay up continuously?
If you want it to come up on demand, enter the idle time in seconds
after which the link should be dropped. If you want the link to
stay up permanently, enter 'no' (two letters, lower-case.)
NOTE: Demand-activated links do not interact well with dynamic IP
addresses. You may have some problems with demand-activated links.
>>> Enter the demand value (default no): no

DNS

Please enter the IP address of your ISP's primary DNS server.
If your ISP claims that 'the server will provide DNS addresses',
enter 'server' (all lower-case) here.
If you just press enter, I will assume you know what you are
doing and not modify your DNS setup.
>>> Enter the DNS information here: server

PASSWORD

>>> Please enter your PPPoE password:
>>> Please re-enter your PPPoE password:

FIREWALLING

Please choose the firewall rules to use. Note that these rules are
very basic. You are strongly encouraged to use a more sophisticated
firewall setup; however, these will provide basic security. If you
are running any servers on your machine, you must choose 'NONE' and
set up firewalling yourself. Otherwise, the firewall rules will deny
access to all standard servers like Web, e-mail, ftp, etc. If you
are using SSH, the rules will block outgoing SSH connections which
allocate a privileged source port.

The firewall choices are:
0 - NONE: This script will not set any firewall rules. You are responsible
for ensuring the security of your machine. You are STRONGLY
recommended to use some kind of firewall rules.
1 - STANDALONE: Appropriate for a basic stand-alone web-surfing workstation
2 - MASQUERADE: Appropriate for a machine acting as an Internet gateway
for a LAN
>>> Choose a type of firewall (0-2): 0

** Summary of what you entered **

Ethernet Interface: nsa0
User name: gq2220206@sltadsl.lk
Activate-on-demand: No
DNS addresses: Supplied by ISP's server
Firewalling: NONE

>>> Accept these settings and adjust configuration files (y/n)? y
Adjusting /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf
Adjusting /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
(But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/pap-secrets-bak)
(But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/chap-secrets-bak)

Congratulations, it should be all set up!

Type 'pppoe-start' to bring up your PPPoE link and 'pppoe-stop' to bring
it down. Type 'pppoe-status' to see the link status.

................TIMED OUT
Am i playing around with the wrong chipset and the firmware? My modem says PROLINK on top. as i've mentioned earlier when i run lsusb in Ubuntu i get the Globspan. Inc DSL200 modem thing.

pathum 04-07-2009 11:23 PM

The modem doesnt even light up btw....but when i boot the PC the modem light blinks....but it never becomes steady....and if i remove and plug the USB cable again it doesnt light up.

STARHARVEST 04-08-2009 04:01 AM

dunno maybe it's really not conexant based modem.

bushcat 04-20-2009 10:00 PM

thanx for the how to starhavest,well i tried in several places for a way to install that modem onvector and finally gave up once I got this speedtouch 330 modem,it's kind of a headacher itself,but finally managed to get it working.now i'v got this another old machine whih i installed vector,so it sould work fine.ill try it out and post any progress.from where i come from most people use this modem because it is one of the common modems supplied by the local isp.

harindu 09-21-2009 04:13 AM

The linux driver for prolink h9601 is eciadsl(google it)
PM me if you have a problem!(elakiri as harper)
install it and the download the synch.bin achive which is also there and extract it to /etc/eciadsl/synch
use the following parameters to configure
using eciadsl-config-text command as root
VID1=0915
PID1=8102
VID2=0915
PID2=8102
MODE=LLC_SNAP_RFC1483_BRIDGED_ETH_NO_FCS
VCI=35
VPI=8
FIRMWARE=/etc/eciadsl/firmware00.bin
SYNCH=gs7470_synch20.bin
PPPD_USER=(username)
PPPD_PASSWD=
USE_DHCP=no
USE_STATICIP=no
STATICIP=
GATEWAY=
MODEM=Other
MODEM_CHIPSET=GS7470
SYNCH_ALTIFACE=0
PPPOECI_ALTIFACE=0
PROVIDER=Other
DNS1=203.115.0.46
DNS2=203.115.0.47
then to connect enter these commands as root eciadsl-start.keep entering this command until an error comes telling that a process called eciadsl-pppoeci is already running.
then type ifconfig and you must see something like this(without any rx packets):
tap0
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr d6:ab:d9:99:f5:2e
inet6 addr: fe80::d4ab:d9ff:fe99:f52e/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:18395 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:19493 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:500
RX bytes:17577091 (17.5 MB) TX bytes:2835186 (2.8 MB)

if you dont see something like this then try eciadsl-start again until you see it.

then after tap0 appears
enter the command pppoeconf tap0
then it will scan some stuff and press enter for all those stuff enter you username and password when asked.after you are done ,
connect by typing pppoe-start
happy surfing
PM me if you have a problem!(elakiri as harper)

Need clarification
 
Hi,

I am new to Linux and I want to install my Hurricane 9601 adsl modem in Ubuntu 12.04. I read your post but I am not clear what to do. I downloaded eciadsl. Now how can I install it?

"install it and the download the synch.bin achive which is also there and extract it to /etc/eciadsl/synch
use the following parameters to configure
using eciadsl-config-text command as root"

can you please explain the above statement more simply?

Thanks
