Question connect huawei usb modem with linux


I purchased the Huawei EC325 modem from BSNL WLL which uses a USB cable to connect to the PC. My inital reaction was since it was a USB connection and was using a custom software to connect to the net, it would not be possible to connect to the net in Linux using this modem.What can i do?

Is it a usb only modem that connects by wireless?

Usually the driver modules are present in the kernel (as for other providers)

If it has ethernet, then use that.

plug the device in and post output of

#sudo dmesg |tail
<your passwd>
(in ubuntu)


Also post relevant part of

#sudo lshw

I really don't understand much about Linux Mint, someone suggested it to me about 2 weeks ago because it is virus free; but so far I have not been about connect my usb Huawei ETS 1201 Modem to the internet. It seems that linux sees it and gives this message when I type the cd

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0451:3410 Texas Instruments, Inc. TUSB3410 Microcontroller

but I don't know how configure it so that I conect to the internet.
any help?

Take a look at this page http://www.openpages.info/huawei.html

use any GUI tool to configure the modem

# lsmod | grep ti_usb_3410

ti_usb_3410_5052 55112 0
usbserial 31336 1 ti_usb_3410_5052
usbcore 129668 4 ti_usb_3410_5052,usbserial,uhci_hcd


Means the modules are auto loaded


You will find plenty of pages by searching for ID 0451:3410
