    Angry Huawei e1750 on 9.10: it doesn't work anymore!

    Hello,
    as in the subject with the new release 9.10 the Internet usb key Huawei e1750 doesn't work any more. I spent many and many hours surfing the web trying to find a solution, trying to install many connection software, but nothing... The driver included in the key doesn't work any more, too. And Ubuntu doesn't recognise it in any way.
    The only solution for me was to downgrade Ubuntu to 9.04 again, reinstall the pen driver and get it work again. Very bad...
    Someone founded the way to get it working in 9.10?
    Thanks in advance.

    Luca

    Hi Luca,
    You don't say who supplied your dongle, but I had trouble with my Huawei K3565 from Vodafone, after upgrade it would'nt work.
    Then I found this on the Betavine Website, and it works, I am connected by the K3565 as I write this,
    try it if you like, you wont know otherwise.

    VODAFONE MOBILE CONNECT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. ------------------------------------------------- * You need a previously working internet connection (e.g: your ethernet one) * Download from this page these two DEB packages: - usb-modeswitch - vodafone-mobile-connect * Install them, e.g: in a terminal command line (substitute the version and architecture here for the ones you have downloaded) sudo dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_0.9.4-1_i386.deb sudo dpkg -i vodafone-mobile-connect_1.99.17-8_all.deb * After this step, you will possibly have unresolved dependencies problems. To solve them execute: sudo apt-get -f install * If everything has gone fine you can plug in the modem, and execute the driver with: vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux


    Best of Luck Jimmers

    this is a very good point jimmers;

    as I understand it, the VMC software will allow a 3G modem to connect to any network; (ie doesn't have to be vodafone);

    the VMC software is built with ozerocdoff; (rather than usbmodeswitch) to achieve the same thing of flipping a device from CD-Rom state to modem state

    Re: Huawei e1750 on 9.10: it doesn't work anymore!

    Hello and thanks for reply.
    The provider of the dongle is 3.
    I tried almost all possibilities founded on internet. But no results.
    I had succes only on my eeepc with ubuntu remix, but the same machine with ubuntu desktop doesn't work. I think there is a problem with the kernel.
    Here all my tries:

    updated kernel and headers to the latest release:
    http://people.canonical.com/~apw/lp451337-karmic/

    modified file following this bug:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ch/+bug/424050

    installed the driver inside the dongle

    installed VMC:
    https://forge.betavine.net/frs/?grou...&release_id=20

    With all this, the ubuntu remix works fine with the e1750 and VMC. The other PC doesn't. Unfortunately the dongle isn't for the netbook!!

    I have no more ideas, apart downgrade again to 9.04.
    Very bad.

    well if 9.04 works for you, that's all you need ?

    Yes, in fact I downgraded to 9.04, but I can downgrade to 8.10, 8.04 etc, or use windows or mac, this is not the point, I think.
    If I upgrade to a new version, is not a good point for ubuntu that something so important, like the internet connection, doesn't work.

    Re: Huawei e1750 on 9.10: it doesn't work anymore!

    This is a well-known bug...

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...6?comments=all

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/449394

    You might possibly be able to get it working by doing this...

    sudo rmmod usb-storage
    sudo modprobe -r option
    sudo modprobe -r usbserial
    sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001
    sudo pppd ttyUSB0

    Note that that usbserial vendor and product are for a Huawei E220 so your's could be different. Try a lsusb or have a look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NetworkManager/Hardware/3G

    I've gone to Mandriva myself as it takes ages of plugging in and out the modem while rmmodding etc, just not worth the hassle, but your mileage may vary. Best of luck !

    Now then, had the same problems (as mentioned its a known bug). However managed to sort it today using the following:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/huaw...50.sh/download

    Basically some sound geezer has made a shell script running the various fixes and workarounds to enable this to work. I just ran it, rebooted and plugged it in. Working a treat now.

    Hope it helps as much as it did for me.

    I was the 2nd person to Download this from sourceforge so its very new.

    Thanks,
    Daly.

    I've tried to install this, but I get the following error:-

    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: oxerocdoff

    I installed ozerocdoff, then tried to install vodafone-mobile-connect again with the same result. How can I get this working?
