Adding a Broadband Modem to the Ubuntu network manager


I am nearing the end of my fight to make my Cricket A600 work natively on Ubuntu...

Last step, how do I go about adding my modem to the ones the network manager will detect? It does not offer a "cricket wireless" option by default when I go to "add broadband connection". I have both the Product ID and Vendor ID of my modem. Where do I need to go to add these so my modem will work?

You go to your other thread here:

.. where you have already solved it.

Haha yea, I posted this while still looking for that last command that made it work. Forcing a hard reset on the device with out actually unplugging it was the solution.

I wasn't quite sure how you did this, but in flipflop.sh I see:

usb_modeswitch -v 0x1f28 -p 0x0020 -R 1

The -R option isn't in the usb_modeswitch --help output (at least, not my version), but I see it's there in the sourcecode.

You might like to submit the string you sniffed for your device to Josua Dietze so he can add it to the list of supported devices in usb_modeswitch.conf.
His email address is in the usb_modeswitch sourcecode README.

Congratulations on getting it working!
