hi Knightron. thanks for reply!

I think you are asking me to try through Ethernet cable? I have my PC offline and there is only one way (for me) to connect to internet i.e. my dongle. Right now i am using another machine to have this conversation going. I need some offline solution (if available!)


Thanks anyways!
Good Day!

successfully using zte ac2737(reliance) in centos6.2

I am successfully using zte ac2737(reliance) in centos6.2 . CrossPlatformUI-V2.1.1_R2-RelianceHSD-i586-fedora.rpm did'nt work for me. So I tried nm-applet(network manager applet) comes with centos6.2 .

to configure connection using nm-applet

from gnome desktop system->preferences->network connections...select "mobile broadband" tab and configure your connection

if zte is not shown in device list

login in terminal as root user and try following command
usb_modeswitch --default-vendor=0x19d2 --default-product=0xfff1

then try to configure your connection again

no I'm not asking you try Ethernet. network manager is a Linux program installed by default on most Linux distributions.

sheebu has given you good directions to do as I suggested. if it doesn't detect it straight away I recommended you wait a minute and try again before using sheebu's method to reveal the device. I have never had a need to login as root and do that, but sometimes it takes a small amount of time to find the device.

Thank you Knightron

You are correct Knightron... At first my device never shown up automaticaly even after wait to load.. so i tried with usb_modswith... After that I have been using the command every time after my computer booted up without waiting. As u directed I wait to load the device automaticaly.. Now it is showing up automatically..

ZTE AC2737 Wireless broadband Internet on centos

hi sheebu,
actually i am not able to follow you advice. i am using centos 5.5 and did not see any "system->preferences->network connections...select "mobile broadband tab ".

It (my system) actually shows a modem connection instead of "mobile broadband". and when i select it says "no modem detected on your PC" and still continues the wizard. Then it displays a list of service providers which are not from India(my residence). I think i never reached where you asked me to.....Is it like "mobile broadband" is supported in only centos6.

I am really irritated with windows since i have to reboot the system every time i have to surf internet.

regarding zte ac 2737

dear all,
i have switched to centos 6.2. Now when i plug in my device, i do not see that it is recognised automatically. But when i goto network connection, then to mobile broad band tab then i get a wizard (snapshots are attached).

I am still not able to connect to the internet. I get the error (see the attachment) when i click apply. Can anybody tell me what is the problem? After configuration of the modem as shown in the snapshots, what command do need to give?

Sandeeprpandy; do this. On a fresh boot, plug in your dongle. Wait, and that's is important, no commands needed; go make your self a coffee or something. I have two dongles, a prepaid one and a one on a plan. The prepaid one takes longer to be detected, but connects fast: the one on a plan, gets detected pretty fast, but takes longer to connect.
So wait, maybe about a minute, and then try those steps, in picture one, under 'create connection' it say 'any device', this should have the name of your dongle in a drop box; you have nothing in your drop box through so it's not detected; this is why i'm telling you to just plug it in and wait about a minute, maybe even two, just to be sure.

Ok, also try this; su to root, and:
Code:
yum list modemmanager

Oh, well glad it's working mate. Thanks for letting us know. You should post the name of the rpm to satisfy the curiosity of the people who've been trying to help.
