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.

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.
