CDMA connection to Linux thru USB


I am using a Reliance CDMA mobile and USB connection,to connect to the web using Win XP on my laptop.When I connect it using Linux, the phone immediately switches off. Can anyone advise why this is and how to solve the problem so that I can connect to the Internet with Linux also.

Thks in advance.

check wether u have the node

#/dev/input/ttyACM0 .....................if not then make it using the foll command

#mknod /dev/input/ttyACM0 c 166 0
#chmod 777 /dev/input/ttyACM0

then tryconnecting it

if it still switches off i guess u have to recompile your kernel in whichu must build in the support for USB modem under networking

jayakrishnan, thks fr yr post. But I cannot try what u suggest if the phone keeps switching off,immediately after reconnection.This does not happen with Win XP.

I cannot understand why the phone switches off.I have tried with other linux machines with redhat liux 4 enterprise,kernel:2.6.9.5 EL.

/var/log/messages: shows that all 3 USB ports were connected and then all 3 USB ports were disconnected.

Pls someone advise.Thks.
