  • That is RepoForge package, you have ask the help from them.

    I used Huawei E-1550 and had this in my config (usb_modeswitch.conf.e1550):

    # Huawei E1550
    #
    # Contributor: Anders Blomdell, Ahmed Soliman

    DefaultVendor= 0x12d1
    DefaultProduct= 0x1446

    TargetVendor= 0x12d1
    TargetProduct= 0x1001

    # only for reference and 0.x versions
    # MessageEndpoint=0x01

    MessageContent=”55534243123456780000000000000011060000000000000000000000000000″

    and in 55-e1550.rules:

    SUBSYSTEM==”usb”, ATTRS{idProduct}==”1446″, ATTRS{idVendor}==”12d1″, \
    RUN+=”/usr/bin/usb_modeswitch -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf”

  • Thanks

    But the way I understand it, please correct me if I´m wrong.

    Before you can do the ¨wvdial¨ command, you firs need to get a ¨ttyUSB¨
    device created. My issue here is that I do not get to the ¨ttyUSB¨ device.

    Put it into a Windows machine to switch it once. Then send it something like

    AT^U2DIAG=0

    over the serial line to switch it permanently.
