Speedtouch 330 modem with Fedora 12?


How do you set up a Speedtouch 330 USB modem to work with Fedora 12?

I have a brand new installation, and need to set up the modem before downloading additional packages.

In earlier version of Fedora (up to 8), I used the speedtouchconf utility, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Really? Those things are evil. I thought they'd all gone now, no one has mentioned them for a few years. Use it as a conker instead, and buy a proper router. Surely no ISP is providing them to any customers any more?

To put it simply, because if I can get the Speedtouch working, I don't need to buy a proper router, or at least not now. And fundamentally, using old things for longer is in my opinion the best way to be "green". So, I have a philosophical preference for continuing to use the modem I have, if I can, rather than throw it in landfill and buy another one.

Anyhow, I can now get the router to go online reliably when I run speedtouchconf manually, but it won't go online automatically. There is one line in the default speedtouch utility that fails, which is a "modprobe -k", with it saying that "-k" is not a known option. Editing the utility to just remove the "-k" then lets the speedtouch utility to run for longer, but it still doesn't go online. Does anyone know what the "-k" option was in previous versions of modprobe. I'm next going to try "-r" to see if that is an equivalent for "-k".

At present my best solution seems to be to setup a shellscript to run speedtouchconf.sh when I log in, and "undo.sh" when the computer shuts down. But if anyone has any constructive tips or comments, they would be appreciated.

I have the same problem with me speedtouch 330 rev.4, but I got it working with this page "steve-parker.org/speedtouchconf/" like you.
I had the same problem and solve it first with ./undo and reinstall, I found out, when I enter
Code:
pppd call adsl updetach
in a console, it tries to connect. I gave two tries and kill the process with "CTRL+C". After this I can connect with
Code:
/etc/rc.d/speedtouch start
.

But yum says, I am not connected with the Internet, therefore I got no up-dates.

Add the word "lock" in the file "/etc/ppp/peers/adsl", then #pppd call adsl updetach even will connect. With #killall pppd the connection will be closed.
