    EVDO usb card not detecting

    In ubuntu 8.04 when I issue command
    modprobe usbserial vendor=0x05c6 product=0x6000

    I get the error
    FATAL: Error inserting usbserial (/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/usbserial.ko): Operation not permitted

    output of lsusb is
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 19d2:fffe
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    Can some one explain why this happens and how to get the usb device detected?

    It might not be recognized because the filesystem is not readable by Linux. I suggest repartitioning it.
    When in doubt try this >>>

    Hi hunter2000_,
    from your lsusb seems to have the 19d2:fffe modem and not the 05c6:6000 you are trying to use. Check and inform us.

    You can also do some basic tests:

    Boot without the modem, wait for the system to load, attach it, wait 15-20 seconds, open a terminal window and try:
    Code:
    dmesg
    This command will show all system activity. Look at the last 10-15 lines for 'usbserial' or 'ttyUSB' etc. Copy here only these 10-15 lines of dmesg.

    Try also:
    Code:
    ls /dev/ttyU* /dev/ttyA* /dev/ttyH*
    to see if any serial communication port is already created for your modem. Post the respond of above command.
