    T-Mobile (UK) E220

    Hi,

    I have tried several posted solutions for getting my Huawei E220 HSDPA modem to work but I'm at a loss. I really need to get this working soon as it will be my only internet connection. The closest I have got to getting it working is using this tutorial.

    The problems I have with that is 1. I only get 2 USB devices, not 3 when I have it plugged in from boot.
    2. If I unplug it and then plug it in again I get 6 USB devices.
    3. If I run VMC with the modem plugged in from boot then it will connect to the device but will show only 1 bar signal strength. When I dial it says failed to connect after 3 attempts and then show 0 bars signal strength.
    4. If i run VMC after unplugging and plugging the device back in it says it fails to connect to the device and then hangs on the loading screen.

    This device works fine in Windows XP (I'm on a dual boot machine).

    Please can someone help me with this device?

    UPDATE - After some searching I finally found a working wvdial.conf file
    Code:
    [Dialer pin]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud = 460800
    Init1 =AT+Cpin=12345
    
    
    [Dialer tmob]
    Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
    Baud = 460800
    Init2 =AT
    Init3 = AT&FE0V1X1&D2&C1S0=0
    ISDN = 0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    Phone = *99***1#
    Username = username
    Password = password
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Then using the command line "wvdial tmob" I can connect. Still got the same problem for getting VMC working. I would like this working as it shows usage stats and with a 3GB limit I would like to track it.

    Hi All

    I was having the same problem with a T-mobile web n walk stick Huawei E220 HSDPA modem and tried lots of thing from various forums with no luck. It's working now see below.

    from terminal type:-

    lsusb

    You should see the device.

    then type:-

    ls -al /dev/ttyU*

    At this point I only see 2 devices
    /dev/ttyUSB0
    /dev/ttyUSB1
    most of the forums say you will see 3.

    If the above is correct go to this link.

    http://support.real-time.com/linux/dialup/wvdial.html

    The values I used in wvdiwl.conf for t-mobile were:-

    Phone = *99#
    Username = user
    Password = Pass

    It worked for me Good Luck, hope it helps.

    Hello all,
    The Huawei E220 is not behaving well for me either, have looked at lots of the posts on subject and getting closer all the time wvdial conf looks different for me I get

    Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

    Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

    not sure what this means? any help please!

    I tried another solution from Andrew McKevitt and it seemed the best but it connected then disconnected straight away, got this on my dialler log

    The pppd error codes didn't make me any the wiser, feel like i'm close but not quite there
    thanks for any help
