    Re: Howto: Connect ZTE MF627 3G modem with NM0.7

    I am using karmic, I am on the three mobile network in UK, I have a SKYPE S2 mobile phone and a ZTE MF627 HSDPA USB dongle

    I followed the above the instructions above and got my ZTE modem working straight away, I am currently swapping my sim card between my phone and modem but I would like to use my phone as a USB modem but I am unable to figure out how to get it to work via USB

    how can I get the SKYPE S2 mobile phone working as a USB modem?

    Re: Howto: Connect ZTE MF627 3G modem with NM0.7

    Hi folks!

    I have a MF627 modem as well, and Ubuntu 9.10. But I have not the "LINUXFILES" on my dongle as Pablo180 and cresswell has.

    I received the ZTE MF627 today from 3 UK, the customer service people and technical support all told me it worked on Linux but I was a little sceptical.

    Amazingly I plugged it in and it does have Linux drivers on the USB drive - and they work in Ubuntu!
    From where can I download the file 3UK_PC_LinuxUI.tar.gz or the "Linuxfiles" directory, because I did not find them on the ZTE's webpage neither.

    Thanks

    Depending on if/when my patch* gets accepted you will likely need to add information about the modem to the HAL infomation:

    $ sudo cp /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-modem.fdi /etc/hal/fdi/information/
    $ gksudo gedit /etc/hal/fdi/information/10-modem.fdi

    Add the following:
    Code:
            <!-- ZTE MF627 HSDPA USB dongle -->
            <match key="@info.parent:usb.product_id" int="0x0031">
              <match key="@info.parent:usb.interface.number" int="3">
                <append key="modem.command_sets" type="strlist">GSM-07.07</append>
                <append key="modem.command_sets" type="strlist">GSM-07.05</append>
              </match>
            </match>
    and save the file.

    Now plug in your modem. It should mount as the ZeroCD device (1). Now right-click the icon on the desktop and eject. Wait a moment, and the light on the modem will go dark, then relight red then green. It should now mount as a modem and be detected by Network Manager (2).

    A note should be made about udev-extras, though:YMMV.

    ########

    I recently bought a 3G mobile broadband modem and then realised I'd bought the wrong model - instead of getting a Huawei E160 or E169 that reportedly work OOTB with Intrepid I got a ZTE MF627 for which no information exists. On the plus side, it has a built-in MicroSD reader...

    I initially submitted a bug report here. Since then, however, I have got it working and so here is a how-to. I hope someone else finds this useful.

    1) Download and install usb_modeswitch

    Go here and download the deb file. A direct link is here. Then install it.

    This provides a way of switching the USB modem from its initial useless mode to its correct, functional modes. It will need configuring to apply to the modem.

    2) Edit /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf to apply to the MF628+

    Either comment the first modem configuration out, then find and uncomment the section for the MF628+, or (more easily) replace the content of the file with:

    Code:
    ########################################################
    # ZTE MF628+ (tested version from Telia / Sweden)
    #
    # Contributor: Joakim Wennergren
    #
    # Also applies to MF627 (Tested 3 UK) JF
    
    DefaultVendor=  0x19d2
    DefaultProduct= 0x2000
    
    TargetVendor=   0x19d2
    TargetProduct=  0x0031
    
    MessageEndpoint=0x01
    MessageContent="55534243123456782000000080000c85010101180101010101000000000000"
    Save it.

    3) Create a udev rule to automatically run usb_modeswitch when the modem is plugged in

    Create a new file called 999-zte-rules:
    gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/999-zte.rules

    Its content should be as follows:
    Code:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idProduct}=="2000", SYSFS{idVendor}=="19d2", RUN+="/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch"
    This will trigger usb_modeswitch every time you plug in the modem. Which is useful if you want it to work automatically. You can of course run it manually if you want.

    4) Add device information to HAL so network-manager recognises the device as a modem

    Finally, in order for Network Manager to recognise the modem information has to be added to HAL.

    Create a new file:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/20thirdparty/20-zte-mf627.fdi

    Its content should be as follows:
    Code:
    <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
      <device>
          <!-- ZTE MF627 HSDPA USB dongle -->
          <match key="@info.parent:usb.vendor_id" int="0x19d2">
            <match key="@info.parent:usb.product_id" int="0x0031">
              <match key="@info.parent:usb.interface.number" int="3">
                <append key="modem.command_sets" type="strlist">GSM-07.07</append>
                <append key="modem.command_sets" type="strlist">GSM-07.05</append>
                <append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">modem</append>
              </match>
            </match>
          </match>
      </device>
    </deviceinfo>
    Save it.

    5) Plug in the modem
    Make sure the SIM card is in the modem (and if you're using 3 UK make sure you're in a 3G area. otherwise it won't work) and plug it into your PC.

    After a little while (several seconds) the LED should light red as it powers up, then switch to blue when it finds a network. You can check it's working by checking dmesg. Once modeswitch has been triggered and the modem reboots you will be presented with the ZeroCD device (e.g. containing the 3connect software), a USB MicroSD card reader, and if everything has gone correctly, Network Manager will detect a new mobile broadband modem.

    Feel free to ignore the ZeroCD device and unmount it from the desktop.

    If everything has gone correctly dmesg should read something like:

    Re: Howto: Connect ZTE MF627 3G modem with NM0.7

    Hello guys, I just want to ask a question. I have ZTE MF-627. I was able to activate it. However, with the solutions posted that I tried to follow in the earlier post of this thread, my laptop booting up went up very slow. Before it only takes me 15-20 seconds of booting time, now it takes me 3-4 minutes booting time. Any solutions my friends?

    Re: Howto: Connect ZTE MF627 3G modem with NM0.7

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get ZTE MF636 to be connectable under Ubuntu 9.10 and have observed and performed your suggested installs and additions to the configuration files. Alas I still have a stable red light and no recognition as amodem by the NM app.Regarding the .fdi file, I am not experienced to know the significance of the statement
    <match key="@info.parent:usb.interface.number""int=3". Can you please explain.
    I am connecting from Norway and I was wondering if this has a bearing on the value to be set.

    Regards
    Chris

    Hi ChrisinNorway,
    MF636 will or not ( ! ) work directly with Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04...
    Some users can connect, I cannot ... (ZTE MF636 from cosmote Greece)

    bug#408555 is active

    My relatively stable connection comes using the following procedure:
    - boot without modem
    - from terminal:
    Code:
    sudo stop network-manager
    sudo killall modem-manager
    - attach modem
    - at 9.10 wait for the cd-rom icon to appear, right click & eject it
    (fully updated 9.10 may not need the eject as 10.04 does not need it)
    - connect using alternative methods (wvdial, gnome-ppp, long pppd command)

    For more info, read: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1466490

    Regards,
    George

    It seems complicated !

    Is there more easier way like a new setup program or some Shell script ?
