    Re: HP un2400 Mobile Broadband Module

    I have a compaq mini 700ee which comes with this wwan internal card as well. Unfortunately, I'm running into the same problem when using the MIE linux OS which is based on Ubuntu, no 3g functionality. In windows it works as expected with the Qualcomm drivers. The Compaq Mini comes with Windows XP by default. The Mini's that come with linux are not equipped with this card. I suppose HP could provide a module for this card just as they did providing an hpmini module which makes the function buttons work. Too bad

    Re: HP un2400 Mobile Broadband Module

    Hello all,

    I've just managed to connect to the Internet using un2400 on my HP EliteBook
    2730p. Here are the steps.

    1) Boot into Windows, start HP Connection Manager and load the firmware that
    corresponds to your wireless provider (I have AT&T). You might want to
    read http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/...readId=1303083
    if you have troubles with this step.

    2) Boot back into Linux. Now the card should be visible for lsusb with
    different product ID:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 03f0:1f1d Hewlett-Packard
    I suspect that this product ID can vary for different firmware.

    Please note that you must NOT load the hp-wmi module as suggested
    somewhere. It apparently resets everything back (including the product ID
    that becomes 0x201d) and one has to repeat step 1 again. In fact, the
    Connection Manager even lists the card as "disabled" for a while.

    3) Download this patch: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...m-driver.patch

    Apply the patch to your kernel source (it works fine with 2.6.28 ) and add
    one more line to drivers/usb/serial/qcserial.c after, say, line 26:
    {USB_DEVICE(0x03f0, 0x1f1d)}, /* HP un2400 Gobi Modem Device */
    Change the product ID approprietly if you have a different one. 0x201d
    will definitely not work.

    4) Recompile the kernel with qcserial as a module and reboot.

    5) Load qcserial with "modprobe qcserial". You should see some encouraging
    messages in /var/log/messages such as
    Mar 20 15:58:54: USB Serial support registered for Qualcomm USB modem
    Mar 20 15:58:54: qcserial 2-2:1.2: Qualcomm USB modem converter detected
    Mar 20 15:58:54: usb 2-2: Qualcomm USB modem converter now attached to ttyUSB0

    You can later have this done automatically by editing /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-modem.fdi

    6) Do "cat < /dev/ttyUSB0 & echo ATI > /dev/ttyUSB0"
    You should be able to see some useful information about your modem.

    7) Enjoy!!

    By the way, the driver for Gobi apparently originates from Qualcomm itself
    (read the comments at the beginning of qcserial.c). Hooray!!

    Re: HP un2400 Mobile Broadband Module

    Update: the card settings (firmware?) apparently don't survive suspend and shutdown of the laptop: the product ID is reverted to 0x201d and the card is
    not recognized as a modem anymore. So one has to boot to Windows again in order to reset it back to 0x1f1d. Anyone knows how to fix this?

    Hello,

    I have the same problems. I've found this Software. http://www.mwconn.com/english.html
    It's a connection manager for Windows, which could handle the Qualcomm Gobi chip. This software runs with wine under ubuntu. I haven't spend much time with this, but it seems to be possible to runt the chip with this software. Maybe you could find a simple solution.

    I've written a firmware loader. You can get it from http://www.codon.org.uk/~mjg59/gobi_loader . You still need to get the correct firmware somehow - I'm not allowed to redistribute it.

    Re: HP un2400 Mobile Broadband Module

    The best way to locate the correct firmware for your carrier is to load it once in Windows (the driver has a huge list of wireless carriers from all over the world) and then look into "Application Data\QUALCOMM\QDLService\Options.txt" file. I have it in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\" directory.

    Hi ani111,

    what version of ubuntu have you installed on your Compaq 700 mini?

    After booting can you open a terminal window and run the commands:

    lsusb
    ls /dev/ttyU* /dev/ttyA*

    and post here the results?

    What is your country & 3G operator?

    Regards,
    George

    Re: HP un2400 Mobile Broadband Module

    Hi ani111,

    from the list of usb devices we cannot determine the modem!

    10F1:1A08 possibly is the webcam
    058F:6335 is the card reader
    and 13D3:3249 USB TV? (www.imcnetworks.com)

    Try also (from terminal):
    dmesg
    lspci

    If you find something that seems to be modem post it here.
    (We are trying to find data for the modem h/w and then search for any worked solution).

    Unfortunately google could not help!

    Regards,
    George
