    Use Droid Incredible for Mobile Broadband on Ubuntu 10.10

    I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. I wanted to setup my droid incredible as a modem to connect via the builtin broadband connection under network manager. I searched around and found couple of ways using wvdial as well as a tunneling app. The funny thing is, that I was able to setup my phone as a usbserial device and use it ONCE to connect successfully via the built-in broadband connection setup method. But ever since, it has not worked .

    Currently I am running a fresh install of 10.10, and have tried to insert usbserial module for my phone in the kernel, but it does not work. The command I used :

    Code:
    sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x00b4 product=0x0ffb
    I have not made this change permanent though. But whenever I run this and connect my phone with broadband connect enabled, it recognizes my phone however it uses a 'generic' driver according to the logs, and it never lets me enable Broadband Connection or connect successfully.

    Any help appreciated!

    can you remember the " /dev/ttyXXX " from wvdial , it may indicate the
    which drivers to load
    if these don't work try post the the tty

    ttyUSB
    For GSM :Check to see if the option drivers will load for the device:

    Code:

    sudo modprobe option

    ttyACM
    For CDMA :Check to see if the ACM drivers will load for the device:

    Code:

    sudo modprobe cdc-acm

    if you make a start up script use "gksu" not sudo

    on a offchance , at some stage the device works without modprobing

    run this command

    Code:

    usb_devices

    make a note of your device / and the driver
