3G USB broadband modem not dialing out
I have one of the Huawei E220 USB modems used by many of the mobile carriers now. I've used it for a while now with Fedora 8 successfully using wvdial.
On Fedora when I plug in the E220 i get two devices, /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1.
I'm now trying to use "the same machine" that I used with Fedora with SLW 12.
When I plug in the modem I only get /dev/ttyUSB0 and I'm unable to dialout.
In kernels prior to 2.6.20 the E220 was picked up incorrectly as a CDROM drive. But Slackware 12's kernel is newer than that so I don't think this is the issue.
In /var/log/messages I do see
GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
But i'm unable to use it.
So my question is, has anyone else seen this problem with a Huawei E220 modem and SLW 12, or does anyone know where I might be going wrong?
