    How can I configure a Huawei E3131 Modem on Ubuntu 10.04

    am using an E3131 Huawei usb modem. I tried instructions
    here
    , but not success yet. I installed the mod-switch as advised. I ran
    Code:
    $ lsusb | grep 12d1

    I get the output below
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 12d1:14fe Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.


    here is the list of files in
    Code:
    $ ls /etc/udev/rules.d/15-huawei-155x.rules31-huawei-e3131.rules
    Content of 15-huawei-155x.rules
    Code:
    TEM==”usb”,
    ATTRS{idProduct}==”14fe”,ATTRS{idVendor}==”12d1″,
    RUN+=”/lib/udev/modem-modeswitch –vendor 0x$attr{idVendor} –product 0x$attr{idProduct} –type option-zerocd”
    Content of 31-huawei-e3131.rules
    Code:
    
    
    Code:
    ACTION!=”add”, GOTO=”huawei_zerocd_end”SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTR{bDeviceClass}!=”ff” ,ENV{DEVTYPE}==”usb_device”, GOTO=”huawei_zerocd_disable”SUBSYSTEM==”scsi”, ENV{DEVTYPE}==”scsi_device”, GOTO=”huawei_zerocd_disable”GOTO=”huawei_zerocd_end”LABEL=”huawei_zerocd_disable”ATTRS{idVendor}==”12d1″, ATTRS{idProduct}==”14fe″, RUN+=”modem-modeswitch -v 0x%s{idVendor} -p 0x%s{idProduct} -t option-zerocd” 
    LABEL=”huawei_zerocd_end”


    I started the udev service. Unfortunately, the e3131 modem does not perform. I made configurations for the APN, but no change whatsoever. Would you possibly correct me?
    Thanking you, Simon.

    Perhaps you should consider upgrading to 12.04 LTS and see how you go with that. 10.04 LTS reaches end-of-life in about two weeks and will no longer receive updates, including security updates, from that point. 12.04 LTS is supported until April 2017.

    I chose to cling to the one I first tried. I have been using 10.04 LTS for the last two years. I might have to install a new OS all together. Upgrading once messed up my work. Thanks for the link you provided, it looks familiar though.

    possible try latest usb mode switch , all at own risk , but they do have a forum.

    do not use the debian link / read how to install first before compiling ,

    Other readers note , do not try this in Ubuntu >10.04
