Hi Guy`s

Just a quick question, Have anyone managed to get the USB MODE_Switch to handle the Huawei E160 3G Dongle to work with the Mk4?

If So i would really appreciate some help getting mine up and running, I`ve tried and failed miserably :-(

Thanks in advance

Hi Kevambert,

Well basicly on every thing, Looks like it is not recognized, I used information from Niggizito above, but no luck, I concluded that i suck at mode_switching since i tried a ZTF MF 656 as well with out any luck, If you would be bothered to share how you managed to set it up i would be eternally grateful,

My E160 had an device id of 12d1:1003 but after I updated the modem firmware it gave me an id of 12d1:140c, as there was no usb_modeswitch file in /etc/usb_modeswitch.d for 12d1:140c I renamed the 12d1:1003 file to 12d1:140c and edited like so (using winSCP)

########################################################

# Huawei E220, E160, E230, E270, E870

DefaultVendor= 0x12d1

DefaultProduct=0x140c

TargetClass=0xff

CheckSuccess=20

HuaweiMode=1

Then using the web interface I edited the Mobile Broadband Configuration script under USB to (using my apn of 3internet as im in Ireland)

*12d1:140c*) echo "Huawei Modem (3-IRL) detected. Attempting mode switch"

uci delete network.wan2

uci set network.wan2=interface

uci set network.wan2.ifname=ppp0

uci set network.wan2.proto=3g

uci set network.wan2.service=umts

uci set network.wan2.device=/dev/ttyUSB0

uci set network.wan2.apn=3internet

uci set network.wan2.username=

uci set network.wan2.password=

uci set network.wan2.defaultroute=1

uci commit network

usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 140c -V 12d1 -P 140c -M 5553424312345678000000000000061b000000020000000000000000000000 -n 1 -s 20

sleep 10; rmmod usbserial

sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x140c

sleep 5; /etc/init.d/firewall disable; /etc/init.d/firewall stop

logger "3G: firewall stopped"

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o 3g-wan2 -j MASQUERADE

iptables -A FORWARD -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o 3g-wan2 -j ACCEPT

iptables -A FORWARD -d 172.16.42.0/24 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i 3g-wan2 -j ACCEPT

This works well even with 3G on boot enabled.

to get the micro sd working I followed Darren Kitchen's tutorial Enable Mass Storage With Swap Partition however if you use the 3G on boot option the micro sd card doesn't mount so you will have to use the force connection now option after the pineapple boots and the micro sd card mounts.

reboot the wifi pineapple iv an leave out the dongle till you Update Fstab then after a couple of secs stick it in,once it shows in resources you can then enable the swap

"Quote/ Darren Kitchen"

b. Plug in the USB drive and wait a minute for everything to settle.

c. SSH into the WiFi Pineapple (typically "ssh root@172.16.42.1")

d. Issue "mkswap /dev/sda2"

my micro sd card shows up as sda in /dev so my Fstab looks like this

config global automount

option from_fstab 1

option anon_mount 1

config global autoswap

option from_fstab 1

option anon_swap 1

config mount

option target /usb

option device /dev/sda

option fstype ext4

option options rw,sync

option enabled 1

option enabled_fsck 0

config swap

option device /dev/sda2

option enabled 1
