I'm using Linux Mint 16 MATE for 64-bit.
CPU~Dual core Intel Core i5 CPU M 430 (-HT-MCP-) clocked at 1199.000 Mhz Kernel~3.11.0-12-generic x86_64 Up~1 day Mem~936.7/5767.4MB HDD~1000.2GB(0.4% used) Procs~202 Client~Shell inxi~1.8.4
I have a USB 3G/4G broadband modem that connects to Sprint's 3G and 4G network through Virgin Mobile. The device is made by Franklin Wireless and its model is U600.
I do not know what commands I would type in the terminal to give you more information about the device, but if it is needed, let me know what you'd like me to type.
When I first plugged it in after the Mint installation, the device would not work at all. I scoured Google for anything that had "linux franklin U600" and found a handful of topics on other forums that gave pieces of information.
Using that I was actually able to get the 3G to work and that is now fully functional. I also got some insight about WHY the 4G is not working, but the commands that users in those forums were using were not (I believe) for mint or any debian-based Linux and following their progress did not work. My understanding of their synopsis of the problem was that this USB modem has some sort of internal hub that then can switch on/off 4 devices within the modem itself (I believe the 4G component had some weird name like Beceem.
Could anyone help me get this Franklin Wireless U600 device so that its 4G WiMax components are powered on, functioning, and capable of connecting to the WiMax network that it is supposed to?
