Huawei 1261 with Slackware 12.1
 
Hello all,

I have a dual boot Linux system with Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 and Slackware 12.1. I have a USB modem Huawei 1261 that I am using with Ubuntu with the usb_modeswitch package. I would like to get that working with Slackware 12.1. Please refer to my post in the usb_modeswitch forum:
http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modes...opic.php?t=493

The usb_modeswitch seems to be working fine and also the "wvdial cdma" seems to working but Firefox can't connect to the internet.

Thanks in advance.

Not exactly the same device, but this guide might help:

Hi,
I had a similar problem. I solved by setting the DNS in /etc/resolv.conf. I did several tests, even with the opendns, until I was able to connect to the network. I hope this helps.

Actually, my device is detected and wvdial cdma gives me IP addresses and other stuff. Josh at the usb_modeswitch forum says there is some routing problem.

So do you have to set the DNS every time you connect? I would rather not do that.

The same device works perfectly in Ubuntu. The only other significant difference is that in Ubuntu I have Gnome whereas in Slackware I have KDE. Should I try GSB with Slackware maybe?

Thanks again.

Are you using (k)networkmanager? If not try it on top of your modeswitch setup in stead of wvdial. I found it very reliable.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it out and let you know. Not in front of my linux box now.
