    Thumbs down Huawei e3131 Hilink Ubuntu 12.10

    Hello,
    some time ago i had problem with connecting two Huawei e3131 Hilink modems to Ubuntu.
    Hilink formware installed on modem makes it impossible.

    To make the switch plug in the modem wait for Hilink to initialize and go to:
    HTML Code:
    http://192.168.1.1
    Make sure automatic connect and reconect is disabled, disable everything even delete AP using web page.
    go to:
    HTML Code:
    http://192.168.1.1/html/switchProjectMode.html
    modem will disconnect and switch to serial, new device should apear in:
    HTML Code:
    /dev/ttyUSB*
    connect to it using com trminal of your choice:
    EX.
    Code:
    minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0
    To enable gms modem mode execute the following:
    Code:
    AT^U2DIAG=0
    To switch back HiLink execute:
    Code:
    AT^U2DIAG=119
    Remove the modem and plug it again for changes to take effect.

    If after pluging in there are no /dev/ttyUSB* devices check lsusb:
    Code:
    # lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 12d1:1c05 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E173s 3G broadband stick (modem on)
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0930:0508 Toshiba Corp. Integrated Bluetooth HCI
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    If there is a modem availible...
    Code:
    $modprobe usbserial
    $modprobe serial
    $echo "12d1 1c05" > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
    Now /dev/ttyUSB* should apear.

    Use wvdial to connect:

    Edit wvdial config:
    Code:
    nano /etc/wvdial.conf
    thats what's my config:
    Code:
    [Dialer aero1]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Init1 = ATRC=0
    Init2 = AT^CURC=0
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","darmowy"
    Phone = *99#
    Stupid mode = yes
    Username = "aero"
    Password = "aero"
    Dial Attempts = 0
    Auto Reconect = yes
    
    [Dialer aero2]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB3
    Init1 = ATRC=0
    Init2 = AT^CURC=0
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","darmowy"
    Phone = *99#
    Stupid mode = yes
    to connect execute:
    Code:
    wvdial aero1
    wvdial aero2
    the modem will auto reconnect to the network if connection is lost.
    Cheers!

    Hi qbasasa,

    I am stuck after setting the stick to modem mode. I would like to reset it to HiLink, but I got no idea how to do so without ttyUSB. Can you help me please??

    This solution has a few disadvantages, the gravest is - it will not connect to (probably) any Vodafone-based network in Germany. Yes, the diode will be solid blue/green/cyan, but there will be no connection. There is another way, using just what is already there: usbmodeswitch. Look here http://uma-wiki.network-mobility.org...n_Instructions , go to the instructions for E353. The modems have the same USB id, and they behave the same (tested on both). There is no need for any special actions other than adding one config file.
