View Full Version : [SOLVED] Mobile broadband connection not selectable in network manager

Hi, I am having problems with my 3 dongle- when I connect it to my netbook it flashes green so it detects a 3G network. However there is nothing in network manager enabling me to choose the mobile broadband so I can't use it. I know there should be an entry "mobile broadband" after the wireless networks listed.

I know the dongle works because I have previously used it successfully- I was using Linux Mint 8 and have now updated to version 9 and when I have tried to use it have been unable to do so.

I have gone into the connections and my 3 connection is present but there is no way for me to select it in network manager.

Any ideas??

I just tried on my wife's netbook and the same thing happened- no entry in the network manager list.... She is running Ubuntu 8.04 (the Dell remix for their minis).

Any suggestions anyone?

have you tried installing usb-modeswitch
worked for me even though you shouldnt need it
the number should be
*99#
APN 3Connect
also give the connection a name..

have a look here

goodluck

Mobile broadband option is available
in network manager applet in new versions of Ubuntu. 09 or 10
When u right click on net manager icon on top left of speaker
you should see edit connections,
And there
wired
wireless
mobile broadband
vpn
=====

But it takes up to 40-50 seconds Ubuntu to discover yr device.
it is not as fast as inserting usb flash disk,

I have the same issue. The Mobile Broadband option is not available in network manager. I am using Ubuntu 10.04. If I right click and select edit connections, I can click on the mobile broadband tab to create a connection which I have done, but no option to 'activate it? Left click also allows me to enable networking and wireless, no option to enable mobile broadband though (not sure if it should be there?). usb-modeswitch and usb-modeswitch-data has been installed.

Any help would be appreciated please?

Thanks

It could be that your USB mobile broadband device is first being recognized as a CD drive. Go to System>Administration>Disk Utility, and if there is an extra "CD drive", dismount it, then wait a minute and your mobile broadband connection should appear in the network manager.

ok Huawei Technologies is the name of the usb chipset thing. And you've tried



usb_modeswitch -H -p 1446 -v 12d1 -W


I'm not at my linux box now, but someone might be able to jump in here - you can check to see if the driver is installed with modprobe, but can't remember the command and can't faff around in a terminal to find it. Might just be


modprobe

these lines indicate the modem and the drivers have configured

if not it will help if you could post details of

this will help determine the data port

sure the above command available in 10.04

there appears to be two data ports on this device highlighted in blue Note the EPs=3
it would be normal to assume the correct Data Port would be ttyUSB0
and the associated driver is option /

so as far as Linux system is concerned the device is recognized , so depending on the connection manager you should be able to connect

I had requested does the network manager recognize the device / I am assuming not

but looking through your post your system is 10.04 / the modem-manager to which network manager depends on for mobile connections,
may not be seeing the device for several reasons, to in depth to go into at present

If your connection is 3g then I suggest

confirm Network Manager can not connect with this device
or check if modem-manager is installed

Code:

which modem-manager

Karamu originally created the thread ... I just piggybacked off it. No option in thread tools for me to close it ... hopefully Karamu will see this and close :) ... Thanks for all your assistance.

OK, I will mark it as solved- glad we could both resolve our issues! I'm happy that my thread was the spark to help someone else out! (Typing from my mobile connection right now!)

hi cedricf

from the info

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2010-11-08 16:07 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Huawei_Technologies_HUAWEI_Mobile-if00-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2010-11-08 16:07 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Huawei_Technologies_HUAWEI_Mobile-if01-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB1

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2010-11-08 16:07 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Huawei_Technologies_HUAWEI_Mobile-if03-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB3

these lines indicate the modem and the drivers have configured

will the device configure with the network manager


if not it will help if you could post details of

Code:

usb-devices

this will help determine the data port

sure the above command available in 10.04

Hi, I'm in the process of solving a similar problem under ubuntu 12.4.

I use the command ls as described but doesn't find anything on /serial/

ls: cannot access /dev/serial/by-id/usb*: No such file or directory

This is my output for:

usb-devices
