Updating procedure huawei e220
If you are using network-manager then this modem should be plug 'n play.I tested using Huawei E270, but since lsusb said that my modem is E220/E270, I assume it is the same.In fact, using the modem under Linux proves to be more reliable as there are no uncalled-for disconnections.This is probably due to the fact that we are communicating directly with the modem, whereas in Windows or Mac OS X drivers are installed on first run (that is what the storage portion is for) and connection is achieved through a thick software layer every time, leaving room for possible interferences and conflicts.Anyhow, the IDs are the same for almost all E220s, so you can copy wholesale.This gets around the kernel to recognize the modem functionalities of the device.You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed.You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
Technically it is a modem, USB and (due to the CDFS format) CD-ROM device.
If it is not showing up, unplug and plug in the modem again to refresh the connection. They are almost "Plug n' Play", a special trait of Linux.
Now you should see it listed in the Network Manager applet. Edit /etc/and use something like the following: [Dialer hsdpa] Phone = *99***16# Username = 65 Password = user123 Stupid Mode = 1 Dial Command = ATDT Modem = /dev/tty USB0 Baud = 460800 Init2 = ATZ Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 FCLASS=0 ISDN = 0 Modem Type = Analog Modem Edit: This section is nullified if you have UDEV and HAL workarounds, or a script, or a package from AUR. Well, for some reason those of us on newer kernels still have to ride the old ways.
In some cases, all that is needed to be done is to remove the usb-storage module first, then load usbserial with the device IDs.
The first cat command on this page will have that information, while lsusb is an alternative.
