usb_modeswitch NOT "HUAWEI E181 gsm modem on slackware 13.1"
usb_modeswitch -p 0x12d1 -v 0x1414 -P 0x12d1 -V 0x1001
usb_modeswitch -p 0x12d1 -v 0x1414 -P 0x12d1 -V 0x140c
do that, it said "nothing to do"
Add -H or similar (I forgot already but --help should help)
I remember, i tried also that, but still it didnot change/switch
the vendor number from 0x1414 to 0x140c or 0x1001
I'm also not clear which number for the vendor number to use,
I read somewhere E180 should work with one of the above (140c / 1001)
But E180 is an UMTS modem and has somewhat vendor number 1446 instead
1414 by E181, E181 is a GSM modem ...
The other question is which configuration script in slackware to use
for configuring usb gsm modem, rc.serial seemed for those analog modem.
I did not see any rc.pppd also in rc.d, but i did not install wvdial,
i ll install it with pkgtool, once i got the DVD/iso mounted ...

I have a Bandluxe C170 broadband modem.
It doesn't work well with FC13 .
I am using usb_modeswitch but i get :
