Cheers!

What a relief, I had 3 weeks of this when I set mine up, I could only access the web via winxp.

I use udev.
and these lines in /etc/modprobe.conf
Code:
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ehci_hcd; /sbin/modprobe ohci_hcd; /bin/true
options usb_storage delay_use=10 swi_tru_install=1
Best wishes, Glenn

hi

my udev is so far working with some minor issues.

The cold boot leads to eject being activated...I need to find a way to make it a if - then arrangement.

2) but when I plug in modem...run lsusb it is now seen as 9000 which is where we need to be.

I am not sure if I should attempt to have a rmmod for usbserial or not...it may be overkill.

I have now got it in my mind that usb3....is because a normal flip flop with usbserial is seen as 3 devices
modem, info channel and modem AT commands channel....my udev rule creates an new id....so as long as I have no other usbs inserted....I am happy it will always be usb3.

3) This is a backup to my naked wired dsl.....so I am happy I have solved it....and now know a way to solve other modems that are not already known to usb_modeswitch etc

speed test at www.speedtest.net

0.91 Mbps...or line speed 910 kbps
0.11 Mbps

the server is seen as coming out of Sydney and I am in WA.

The bar graph shows its only as fast as 512 or adsl1.

regards

more testing to follow when I have time


oops it is ------/etc/udev/rules.d/15-u6t.rules
ACTION!="add", GOTO="U6T_End"

# Plug in modem was seen as a ZeroCD device but ignore it
SUBSYSTEM==”block”, ACTION==”add”, SYSFS{idVendor}==”05c6”, SYSFS{idProduct}==”f000”, OPTIONS=”ignore_device”

#now eject it..to be sure to be sure
RUN+="/usr/bin/eject %k"

# Now let option module replace usbserial to get speed
RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -r usbserial"
RUN+="/sbin/modprobe option"
RUN+="/bin/echo "0x05c6 0x9000" > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id"

#Now lets id my modem
SUBSYSTEM==”block”, ACTION==”add”, SYSFS{idVendor}==”05c6”, SYSFS{idProduct}==”9000”, OWNER="gordy"

# Make users belonging to the dialout group able to use the usb serial devices.
MODE="660", GROUP="dialout"

LABEL="U6T_End"

you rule!

I generally only get upto 368kb/s, and sometimes really fast (520kb/s) but it's very sporadic.

cheers, Glenn

Hi,

I've followed the instructions in this thread to try and get the Crazy Johns modem to work with my Ubuntu 9:10 installation but I'm having a few problems.

I've added the udev script to ensure that the modem is recognised as a modem and not a CD and created the wvdial config file however cannot get a connection. The modem resolutely shows a red light. Are there any other steps I need to carry out in addition to the two above? I can see that certain people have carried out other steps but from the instructions here and also on the wiki on whirlpool I'm not sure if these are applicable to all.

Thanks

Ian

To add a bit more info when the device is inserted in lsusb the product id does change from f000 to 9000. Also when 'ls /dev/ttyU*' is executed I do get USB0, USB1, USB2 and USB3. The only thing that isn't happening is getting the modem light to turn blue. I know that the modem is working correctly as it functions under windows.

Yes I have registered the sim card and had previously had the modem working under windows on the same dual boot machine.

However as of last night I've now got the modem working uder Linux. The only thing is I'm not really sure why as I didn't change anything from previous attempts. Simply booted up the machine plugged in the modem and got the blue light.

Thanks for all the intructions in this thread.

Maybe when you setup the device, you needed to reboot the machine to remove domain name confusion from the old settings.

Usually you can do this without rebooting, but by restarting the service instead,

Code:
service network restart
