Unhappy Problem Installing Reliance Netconnect LG LXU-800 USB Modem


Problem Installing Reliance Netconnect LG LXU-800 USB Modem

Hello there,

My problem is that i just cant get my CDMA 1X LG LXU-800 USB modem to connect to the internet on OpenSuse 11.1
I have been checking numerous websites, blogs and forums to get it sorted. Have tried every thing from wvdial, pppconfig, in built Network Manager and what not. But the results have been very very diasappointing.

First of all i try to install according to their user manual and i get this

root@:~/bin# bash setup.sh
FATAL: Error inserting LXU800Mdm (/lib/modules/2.6.27.25-0.1-default/kernel/drivers/usb/LXU800Mdm.ko): Invalid module format
Kernel Modules are loaded.

and then i get following results with the following commands

root:~# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 018: ID 0eab:9357
Bus 002 Device 015: ID 045e:00cb Microsoft Corp.

This is my wvdialconf

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = AT
Init2 = ATE0V1
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = 0
Phone = "#777"
Password = <mypassword>
Username = <mynumber>


root:~# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory

I checked there is nothing like ttyUSB0 , but there is also nothing else..

So this is what my situation is, i am using Suse 11.1 from my Dual boot laptop and this USB Modem is my only source of internet connection.. So i cant do "apt-get" kind of thing also.

Please help me out..
I am stuck with it for 3 weeks now..and honestly i am feeling a bit let down with this otherwise wonderful OS...

Smile Got the solution...for installing reliance modem driver....

Well after going through many forums and blogs i was really fed up as i was not able to install the modem on linux.But i finally got the solution of installing supported kernel and its working.

First of all u have download the latest driver from the reliance netconnect on this web address(the drivers are generally provided in the cd u got with ur modem) :

http://www.rcom.co.in/Communications...downloads.html

The driver in my case is under the High speed 1x > LXU , download the zip file and extract it.You can find ur appropriate driver by checking your modem name.

Actually in my case of LG LXU modem the drivers are for Linux kernel image for version 2.6.27-7 , so i installed this kernel .You can check the kenel version for which ur drivers are supported by browsing in relaince drivers folder : "relaince/MAC_LINUX_usb_driver/LINUX"(in my case of lxu800) and check the version on the folder(in my case it is LXU800_V2.6.27-7-generic, it can be any of v____generic ).

Now when u r done checking ur modem supported kernel version and downloading the relaince drivers , we r going to install the appropriate kernel (in my case kernel image 2.6.27-7-generic for LXU800 modem).


For LG LXU MODEM users :

Now for downloading and installing follow these steps :



*for debain or ubuntu(download the deb file) -


Step 1 : Download the working kernel files:

(a) linux-image for kernel -
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/193569...-7.16_i386.deb

(b) linux-headers -
for debian or ubuntu
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/193569...-7.16_i386.deb

(c) linux-headers_all -
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/193569...7-7.16_all.deb

Step 2 : Next, install the three downloaded DEB files with dpkg:

sudo dpkg -i linux-*

3. Reboot your computer.

4. Put your current kernel on hold (otherwise it would be upgraded once again during your next "aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade" routine):

sudo aptitude hold linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-7-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-7

*for other linux users dl the tar.gz file -

(1). Download tar.gz
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/intrepi...6.27-7-generic
this package of tar.gz comtains all the files of kernel image and headers.After downloading this package install it -
(2). install -
tar -xvf linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic.tar.gz
cd linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic
./configure
make install
install

(3). Reboot your computer.

(4). Put your current kernel on hold (otherwise it would be upgraded once again during your next "aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade" routine):

sudo aptitude hold linux-image-2.6.27-7-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-7-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-7

For other Reliance Modem users(other than LG lxu 800) -

Find the version of the kernel supported by relaince driver as explained previously.
And find the kernel package from the package search option according to ur kernel-
* linux-image * linux-headers * linux -headers_all
download and install it.


After installing the kernel supported by ur realiance drivers , now follow the steps given by the installtion guide in the reliacnce driver folder
reliance/MAC_LINUX_usb_driver/LINUX(for lxu800)

I am including the guide if u don't have it(for LG LXU800 modem) -


How to manually install LXU800 driver (Linux 2.6.27-7-generic version)


1. Open the console. (ex> gnome-terminal)
2. Change user account to super user account.
[devguru@localhost]$ sudo -s

[root@localhost]#cd bin(in the reliance folder)
3. Install LXU800 driver.
[root@localhost bin]# ls

[root@localhost bin]# lsmod |grep LXU
LXU800Mdm 13728 0
[root@localhost bin]# more /etc/rc.local

# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
/sbin/modprobe -f LXU800Mdm
exit 0
[root@localhost bin]#
5. Uninstall LXU800 driver.
[root@localhost bin]# pwd
Home/localhost/bin
[root@localhost bin]# cd /
[root@localhost]# cd /usr/local/LGE/LXU800
[root@localhost /usr/local/LGE/LXU800]# bash LGE_ LXU800_uninstall.sh

6. Check Uninstalled State.

[root@localhost /usr/local/LGE/LXU800]# more /etc/rc.local
#!/bin/sh
#

# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
exit 0
[root@localhost ~]#

* Prepare Testing
1. Insert LXU800 modem in Linux usb port, and create the shortcut of modem
equipment and serial port.
[root@localhost bin]# ls /dev/*LXU*
/dev/ttyLXU800Mdm0
[root@localhost bin]# ln -s /dev/ttyLXU800Mdm0 /dev/ttyACM0
[root@localhost bin]# ls -l /dev/*ACM*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2008-12-12 18:56 /dev/ttyACM0 -> /dev/ttyLXU800Mdm0
[root@localhost bin]#
