Hi Richy,

I'm close to getting a Novatel 2352 working - aka the MiFi. It's a nifty unit that has room for a microSD card and has its own battery.

I'm getting a response from the modem and it's reporting the signal/network. Just need to figure out the network part.

Yeah - bought it a while back and threw a T-Mobile sim in it. I've not seen the 'pineapple supported' devices in this country, but there's an 'unofficial list' worth looking at.

PPP is being a little bit funny with the 2352. It's sending an echo request even if I tell it not to and because the 2352 doesn't respond it kills the connection, so I'm getting it restarting the connection every 20 seconds or so :-(

I'm away from my pineapple at the mo, but from memory I think it's

comgt -x -d /dev/ttyUSB0

Edit:

Actually you can use this as well, I think it's synonymous:

gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB0

Thanks will try it, still have trouble with a Huawei E153 shows up as

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 12d1:14ac Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

so not sure if i need to switch, is there a command to connect to 3G or should it start automatically?

12d1:14ac - looks as if it's switched over from being a storage device ok. Have you done the following?

rmmod usbserial
insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x14ac

Fantastic - glad I could help :-) Got my 2352 up and running (see my other thread) and it's a blast. Everything in my backpack, and I can configure it all through my smartphone. Discrete :)

Hi,

Maybe you can help, I am trying to get my 3g dongle (uk sim/) to work MK IV.

I have the following:

sim: Vodafone UK

3g dongle: Zoom 4595

Mk iv – firmware version 2.0.0

In web ui, Under USB :

lsusb output:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1c9e:9603 OMEGA TECHNOLOGY

SSH & try running the following:

root@Pineapple:~# rmmod usbserial

root@Pineapple:~# insmod usbserial vendor=0x1c9e product=0x9603

root@Pineapple:~# comgt -x -d /dev/ttyUSB0

High speed overide (115200 is now 57600).

***SIM ERROR***

Check device port configuration.

Check SIM is inserted

Test SIM in a mobile phone?

root@Pineapple:~#

Any ideas what this means/could be or what I am doing wrong?

Looking around I found this link:

https://github.com/sebkinne/wifipineapple/wiki/3G-Modem

and noticed …According to Darren the following list is also supported but untested: link

http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/device_reference.txt

I did a search for my vendor=0x1c9e & product=0x9603, and found this:

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

# MobiData MBD-200HU (aka 4G XS Stick W10/W14, aka Micromax MMX 300G,

# aka ChinaBird CBCPL68)

#

# Contributor: Chris

DefaultVendor= 0x1c9e

DefaultProduct= 0xf000

TargetVendor= 0x1c9e

TargetProduct= 0x9603

MessageContent="55534243123456788000000080000606f50402527000000000000000000000"

Not sure if/where it’s used.

Can you help?

Thx rmg
