Problems Using Huawei E355 and Mark V

I recently got a Huawei E355 to use with my Pineapple V. I'm using mobile broadband from 3 UK here in the UK. The problem I am having is that my pineapple won't connect to the E355. The dongle powers up when plugged in the USB on the pineapple but it won't create a eth1 connection to it. Has anyone had this problem or have any suggestions how to fix it? Thanks

use this script and place it under /etc/hotplug.d/usb/40-e355

#!/bin/bash

#

# Hotplug script for Huawei E355 3G Modem

#

# Vendor ID: 12d1/14db/102

#

logger Pineapple.modem: New device found $PRODUCT

[[ $PRODUCT == "12d1/14db/102" ]] && {

[[ $ACTION == "add" ]] && {

ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

route del default

route add default gw 192.168.1.1 eth1

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o eth1 -j MASQUERADE

iptables -A FORWARD -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o eth1 -j ACCEPT

iptables -A FORWARD -d 172.16.42.0/24 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i eth1 -j ACCEPT

logger Pineapple.modem: Huawei E355 Added

} || {

iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o eth1 -j MASQUERADE

iptables -D FORWARD -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o eth1 -j ACCEPT

iptables -D FORWARD -d 172.16.42.0/24 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i eth1 -j ACCEPT

/etc/init.d/network restart

logger Pineapple.modem: Huawei E355 Removed

}

}

the script is adapted fron a hak5 tutorial video with the content of 3G modems

if you flash your firmware the script will be deleted, so place it also under /sd/etc/hotplug.d/usb/40-e355

so you can simply copy it after firmware update.

I have the same problem and the script doesn't solve the problem for me.

When I do lsusb I can see the Huawei device connected but the eth1 interface is never created.

on /dev/ I have nothing related to ttyUSB*

I've tried so many things with the same result.

Any idea?

Thanks
