Huawei E1752 mobiel internet op Linux (Ubuntu/debian)

Mobistar verkoopt met hun "Internet Everywhere" abonnementen een goedkoop en degelijk alternatief voor de occassionele gebruiker van mobiel internet (5 euro per maand + 1 euro per dag gebruik en 1 GB inbegrepen). Je krijgt/koopt hierbij standaard een Huawei E1752 USB modem. In tegenstelling tot de eerdere Option en Huawei USB devices zijn deze echter niet meer zo straight forward te gebruiken op Linux. De modems zijn nu modem en USB mass storage device (voor de Windows driver) en Linux ziet standaard de usb mass storage in plaats van de modem. Dit kan je nakijken met lsusb:

# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 12d1:1446 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

Je kan de modem echter activeren met usb-modeswitch

apt-get install usb-modeswitch

en voeg onderstaande lijnen toe in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf

Je kan nu via netwerk-manager: edit connections een nieuwe mobiele connectie toevoegen. Kies het device, daarna Belgium, Mobistar en "Internet Everywhere". Normaal zijn alle settings goed en moet je alleen de PIN invoeren bij de gedetailleerde gegevens. Daarna manueel verbinden en voila...

Ironisch: als Windows niet zo een ingewikkeld systeem was, zou dit mass storage voor de drivers niet nodig zijn en zou dit device zoals voordien "plug & play" werken op Linux.

PS: bovenstaande zal analoog werken met de Proximus Vodaphone USB modems en vele Option modellen, mits je het juiste device in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf uncomment.

Ubuntu 10.10 Changes ?

Hi Luc,

I just upgraded to 10.10 .
As a result the Conf file has been renamed to 'usb_modeswitch.conf.dpkg-bak'

But I noticed that USB_modeswitch no longer has to be called MANUALLY.
I just plugged in the modem, and after 10 seconds it connect me to the internet.
Could anyone confirm this ?

Indeed, seems to work without

Indeed, seems to work without any custom commands or configuration in Ubuntu 10.10. The new config is in /etc/usb_modeswitch.d and the config for the mobistar modem is already included.

Ubuntu 10.04 ?

Roel, I guess you mean Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) ?

I had to install usb_modeswitch on my clean system, and I had to call it manually (after manually creating the .conf-file).

Reboot first

Thanks for the guideline Luc.
I've tried this out on Ubuntu Karmic and it also worked.
My steps where a bit different.

First i created a new internet everywhere Mobile connection with the Network Manager:
Right Click the Network Manager Icon
Choose "Edit Connections"
Choose the Tab "Mobile Broadband"
Click "Add" Button
Click "Forward" Button
Choose Belgium > Mobistar > Internet Everywhere
Fill in your personal PIN
Leave all other settings.

NEXT : USB_MODESWITCH
Following your guidelines to installed usb_modeswitch and provide the correct configuration settings.
Trying
/> sudo usb_modswitch at that moment did not succeed.
The process stalled on
Looking for active driver ...
No driver found. Either detached before or never attached

I had to reboot my system first to make that command work correctly.

Thanks again for usefull tip

Re: Additional info: Acer Aspire

> Bash: apt-get : command not found
Linpus Lite is Synaptic based, not apt-get/dpkg so the command will never be there. Since Linpus Lite is Fedora based then you could use rpms, and therefore run yum instead of apt-get (if yum is installed). I suggest that you learn about the various Linux package managers afore you continue:
