Speedtouch 330 with Suse 10


Hi,

Please could someone help? I've just installed Suse 10 and I'm a bit clueless about setting up my Speedtouch 330 USB Modem.

I've had a search around but I can't seem to find anything for version 10. I know that there are some drivers on Sourceforge but I don't know where to start.

Any help would be gratefully received!

Well, SuSE should auto detect a USB modem. What does your hardware system information say? Is it there?

Yeah, it's not a problem with the detection; it's in with the USB devices.

The problem is that I don't know how to set-up the modem to work. It doesn't auto-detect the DSL as I thought it might. I was thinking that it may have to have a specific driver so that the Kernel can use it?????

No it's just an ADSL USB modem.

My problem is that I don't know how to configure it. Like I said; I think it needs a driver of some description and I wondered if any of you guys knew if there was one and if you kindly help me through the process of getting it to work.

Thanks.

can you ping it? Do you know the ip for the modem? Usually for ethernet is will be 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.0.138

Check out this thread

Its a howto I wrote in ICS. If your device is present in the Network manager, this may get you going.

If it doesn't work post back.

Unfortunately I can't try at the minute as I'm at work, but I will when I get back.

Won't I get that information from an ipconfig? I'm new to Linux so if you could talk me through the console it'd be much appreciated! I assume it's just a case of switching to root and then typing the command but I just thought I'd check.

BTW; if I can ping the modem (which I assume I'll be able to do due to the loopback adapter alone), what would you suggest for configuring it for the internet? Would I be right in thinking that I'd need a driver module for the kernel?

you want ifconfig, with the F! I don't think it's the same as pinging your router since it's concerning itself with the computer network settings. For all it knows the modem could be non-existent.

For pinging you don't have to be root, although you may if it makes you feel better
If you can ping it, i think it's down to doing proper settings for the modem and your off.

just remember to log in as root. If you do a su then you have to have /sbin infront of all the commands.

Many thanks for all the help guys. Linuxbotx: looking at your guide I don't think it's what I need to set up the Speedtouch, but cheers for the support.

I haven't had chance yet but I believe the problem can be solved by:

1) Making sure that the modem has been picked up in the USB devices (YAST -> hardware)
2) Configure a DSL device in Network devices as follows:

- PPPoA
- Routing (as opposed to bridge mode)
- VC
- 0 and 38 for VPI and VCI (i.e. 0/38)
- Qos type - UBR
- Obtain IP address automatically.

I'll let you know if it works.

Argggh! No internet and no email make karlt78 go crazy!!

Sorry; lost it for a moment there. Looks like it might be a case of digging out the Ladybird book of Linux Network Connections. I'll have to go through it step by step I'm afraid.

1) Speedtouch ADSL modem is detected as a USB device.
2) I go into Network Devices and choose DSL.
3) I choose ppp over ATM.
4) VPI and VCI 0/38.
5) Hit next (I can't configure anything else)
6) I put in my username and password and name the connection.

To be honest I don't know if these settings are correct....!

7) Then I try and open Firefox and it says the pages are unavailable!

How can I get it to use my USB modem? If you could explain it step by step I'd really appreciate it. Cheers guys.

- What settings? Your username and password? Maybe your ISP has a webmail or password service online where you can try them to see if yours are correct. Some ISP's are also willing to give you the connection details for your connection over the phone.
Anyways chill it and you'll manage! Don't Panic :P

Thanks for replying muha. My username and password are definitely right as I use them in Windows.

I think my problem is not knowing the right procedures and so I don't know if it's something I haven't done or something I have (if you get my drift!)
