Novatel USB760 CDMA Modem on Slackware64-13.1


I am able to set up this modem on Ubuntu and Fedora but cannot get it to work on Slackware. I have tried many configurations, all with no success. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried google? Or searching these forums?

Since, when I did I came across this thread:

Yes, I searched Google and this forum before I posted my thread. That *is why* I posted here. This solution still does not work.

My holiday project is trying to get a Huawei E160E modem working using pppd directly as I am having problems with kppp.
I have found this script suggested on the USB_Modeswitch site. http://www.sakis3g.org/
Try downloading the "All architects - Binary free version", extracting it and running it with ./sakis3g.
This gave me a connection.

Just got this Huawei E160E working with pppd. Happy holidays, no more surfing in IE!
In case any Google hits get here.
As root, I run

where /root/Desktop/chat2.txt contains
Quote:
# chat script for Huawei E160E HSDPA USB stick with Optus prepaid mobile internet

# Developed from sakis3g script
ABORT 'NO CARRIER'

CONNECT ''
Just need to remember to update /etc/resolv.conf with the contents of /etc/ppp/resolv.conf on initial connection and ensure that /etc/ppp/ip-pre-up is a symlink to a suitable firewall.
