if i execute the script nothing happens. (nothing in the logs either)

however if i run the following manually. i seem to get a 3g connection however unable to ping any address.

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=live.vodafone.com

uci set network.wan2.username=

uci set network.wan2.password=

uci set network.wan2.defaultroute=1

uci commit network

usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 1001

sleep 10; rmmod usbserial

sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001

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

After you ran it manually did you see anything in the logs about a connection? If you ls /dev/ttyUSB* do you get anything in return? Also, please verify that your lsusb is not showing a different value than "12d1:1001" for the modem. I have seen them change product codes occasionally depending on the device being removed and re-inserted.

Also, when you ran the 3g.sh script manually it should have at least said searching for modem, then printed the "12d1:1001" string, or perhaps something else was printed?

Oh Joy, Finally managed to get this to work on the Huawei E353, even dough it showed up as E398. I used the USB Mode_Switch for 12d1:1506, It runs smooth as silk, Thank you soo much guys for helping me sorting this out,

By the way, Just so nobody does the same F"#¤% i did the first 2 hours of trying, DO NOT USE BATTERY POWER before you get it up and running, Damn rookie mistake from my side . Also double and triple check the APN settings, Google is your friend

Hello Thetra,

Can you plase post what you put into the usb_modeswitch and what your 3g script is?

I have the same modem but i can not get it to work.

Thanks

Hi webdirector

I used the 12d1:1506 Worked as a charm, JUST be sure you are not on battery power I am currently using a bit overpower, At 12V 2A. and have done so successfully for as long as i had the Apple

that shouldn't be an issue. the device is designed for 12v; making 2A available is no worse than having 12v 10A. it's the voltage you have to worry about. if you go significantly higher or lower, you'll start getting problems, but with your setup it should be fine.

it seems that mount has to query the 3g dongle for its partition layout before the kernel can see the partitions on the USB. This should happen automatically, but it may be a by-product of the usb modeswitch.

can you tell me what the purpose or the usb modeswitch file is for ?

the reason I ask is because sometime I get errors in the log files sometimes I don't saying usb modeswitch failed, so I removed the file from /etc/usb_modeswitch and removed the line from the 3g script.

However the Huawei modem id (12d1:140c) still works fine and the sd card inside is working fine as well, but now I dont get the error at all of usb modeswitch seemingly failed.

do I actually need the modeswitch file ?

Thanks

Have you restarted the pineapple since you make that change? I ask because that application sets the vendor and product of the USB Modem.

Yes Vulture

I have restarted several times is still works fine, the funny thing is when I made changes (wrong ones) to the file before removing it, the modem would not be recognised by the pineapple, the usb light would come on as if it detected it but then go off as if it lost connection.

Still no luck with getting my 3G to work.

3G script below makes a successful connection, i get an IP, however i'm unable to ping anything i.e 8.8.8.8

Any Ideas, it almost seems like the firewall is blocking it somehow..?

1.0.2

Since i posted the previous post i was able to ping 8.8.8.8 fine, however writing this post i'm not able to ping any address again.

However i still have a 3G IP. i've got 3G bootup enabled and 3G redial enabled.

Theres nothing in the logs after the initial 3G connection.

Oh Joy, Finally managed to get this to work on the Huawei E353, even dough it showed up as E398. I used the USB Mode_Switch for 12d1:1506, It runs smooth as silk, Thank you soo much guys for helping me sorting this out,

By the way, Just so nobody does the same F"#¤% i did the first 2 hours of trying, DO NOT USE BATTERY POWER before you get it up and running, Damn rookie mistake from my side . Also double and triple check the APN settings, Google is your friend

Hi Thetra,

Are you able to use micrSD card in E353? I'm experiencing problems with my E160.

Thank you,

Nik

Just a quick tip for those like me who experience problem to automount the sdcard in the modem at boot :) My sdcard was not mounting at boot and I had to launch /etc/init.d/fstad reload to mount it by ssh.

Edit /etc/init.d/fstad to add sleep 15 in the start() function like this:

start() {
	. /lib/functions/mount.sh

	sleep 15

	config_load fstab
	mkdir -p /var/lock
	lock /var/lock/fstab.lck
	[ -e /tmp/fstab ] || {
		echo '# WARNING: this is an auto generated file, please use uci to set defined filesystems' &gt; /tmp/fstab
	}
	lock -u /var/lock/fstab.lck
	config_foreach do_swapon swap
	config_foreach do_mount mount
	config_foreach do_swapon swap  # do swap a second time so that swap on filesystems is enabled
}

Hi Whistle Master!

Thank you for your recommendation.

However I still have an issue.

My setup: MarkIV, ver 2.2.0

MicroSD was formated as per Darren post. The MicroSD card is inserted into HUAWEI E160 3G dongle.

Before changing the fstab file, when I boot MARK with 3G dongle inserted, I wasn't able to ssh into it upon finishig the boot. Always had to remove the dongle, reboot MARK, insert the dongle, issue mkswap /dev/sda. Only then the swap and /usb were mounted. Note: I was issuing mkswap /dev/sda not /dev/sda2 as others did. When I was trying to use /dev/sda2 I was getting Unknown device error.

Now, I changed the fstab as per your recommendation and I'm able to ssh to MARK with the dongle inserted upon boot. However my miscrosd card is still not automounted.

Any ideas?

Here is my fstab:

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/sda1

option fstype ext4

option options rw,sync

option enabled 1

option enabled_fsck 0

config swap

option device /dev/sda2

option enabled 1

Your fstab is wrong, it should be 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 mount
option target /usb
option device /dev/sda1
option fstype ext4
option options rw,sync
option enabled 1
option enabled_fsck 0

config swap
option device /dev/sda2
option enabled 1

I know, it can be strange to put two entries but it seems that mount has to query the 3g dongle for its partition layout before the kernel can see the partitions on the USB.

I'm at work. Will report back once I'm home!

I have a Huawei E173s modem.

It is reported as 12d1:1c0b (modem off) when running as a sdcard reader / USB masstorage.

It is reported as 12d1:1c05 (modem on) when running as a 3g-modem.

I've gotten it to work in both modes seperately. I.e. either usbstorage with swap, /usb etc. or as a 3g modem.

What I'm wondering now is if it's possible to get it to work as both simultaneously?

I'd like to use the sdcardslot for swap, /usb and at the same time use the 3g modem.

I recently got myself a Huawei E353 (12d1:14db) and I'm having issues making it work.

Pineapple firmware is 2.4.1. I get errors when executing these lines.

root@Pineapple:~# ls /dev/ttyUSB*

ls: /dev/ttyUSB*: No such file or directory

root@Pineapple:~# insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x14db

insmod: can't insert 'usbserial': File exists

root@Pineapple:~# lsusb

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 014: ID 12d1:14db Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

(also, the huawei is disappearing a while after it has been plugged in)

The 3G modem script I have is

*12d1:14db*) echo "Huawei Modem E353 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=internet

uci set network.wan2.username=

uci set network.wan2.password=

uci set network.wan2.defaultroute=1

uci commit network

usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 14db -V 12d1 -P 14db

sleep 10; rmmod usbserial

sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x14db

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

APN, username and pwd should be correct

I added the product's info to usb_modeswitch folder

root@Pineapple:/etc/usb_modeswitch.d# cat 12d1:14db

# Huawei E353

DefaultVendor=0x12d1

DefaultProduct=0x14db

TargetClass=0xff

CheckSuccess=20

HuaweiMode=1

Where should I look into next?

Any idea to fix this?

Thanks.
