Problem Tethering Novatel 2352 To A Mk 4

Hi,

I've just been trying to come up with the magic 3g.sh recipe that will get my Novatel 2352 (aka MiFi) registered with my Pineapple, attached via the USB port. I feel I'm close, but I'm missing something.

Pineapple Firmware: 1.1.1

lsusb output:

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1410:7001 Novatel Wireless

Now it doesn't seem to need modeswitching as insmod usbserial *appears* to work. I'm getting responses to my AT commands.

3g.sh section:

*1410:7001*)	echo "Novatel 2352 (MiFi) detected"
		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=general.t-mobile.uk
		uci set network.wan2.username=
		uci set network.wan2.password=
		uci set network.wan2.defaultroute=1
		uci set network.wan2.ppp_redial=persist
		uci set network.wan2.peerdns=0
		uci set network.wan2.dns=8.8.8.8
		uci set network.wan2.keepalive=1
		uci set network.wan2.pppd_options=debug
		uci set network.wan2.pppd_options=noauth
		uci commit network
		#No modeswitch appears necessary
		sleep 3; rmmod usbserial
		sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x7001
		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

		;;

When 3g.sh is run, the following appears in the log:

From 01:35:37 onwards is where things seem to go pear shaped. At times I've had bytes sent and received,but the connection doesn't appear for long.

Any ideas, anyone?

Hrm. Connection issue resolved. It was the 'ppp_redial=persist' which caused the echo-checking. Removed that, and things started working.

*1410:7001*)	echo "Novatel 2352 (MiFi) detected. Attempting mode switch"
		uci delete network.wan2

...and here's the log:

The MIFI has a tendency to connect as USB ID 1410:5041 or 1410:7001. If it's the former, I need to change usb_modeswitch it, which I still need to figure out. I'll do the USB sniffing to check what the command to change modes is.
