CDMA 1xEVDO Card configuration (GPRS)


This thread started with the subject "help with a PCI card... Error -110" I wanted to rename it to something a little more relevant.

Well, upgraded to kernel 2.4.26, no change however with the pc5220 CDMA 1xEVDO card :-(

I don't understand what is wrong here. All of my software versions match what reported to work. I think the root of the problem is in usbserial.

modprobe usbserial vendor=0xf3d prod=0x0112

gives the following error:
Warning: ignoring prod=0x0112, no such parameter in this module
Module usbserial loaded, with warnings

Relavent /var/log/message entries:
Jul 7 17:38:28 ops kernel: hub.c: new USB device 03:00.0-1, assigned address 2
Jul 7 17:38:28 ops kernel: usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2 (error=-110)

Jul 7 17:40:51 ops kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
Jul 7 17:40:51 ops kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial Driver core v1.4

I think the answer lies in here... If some guru could please step forth, you would make at least one Linux enthusiast very happy :-)

The card is verified as functional.

Problem solved!!!

Load usbserial like this:

modeprob usbserial vendor=0xf3d product=0x0112

the argument "prod" is no longer valid, must be product.

Many thanks to Phil Karn, author of the site: http://www.ka9q.net/5220.html who quickly replied to my email with the suggestion!!!
