Huawei E176 T-Mobile Internet Stick MicroSD slot

Postby relst on Wed May 06, 2009 12:46 pm

Hy Guys,

I have a T-Mobile Internet Stick (Holland) and thats a Huawei e176 3g modem. It has a microsd slot, and i would like to use that. Now t-mobile says it supports linux, but i have'nt found it out yet. My modem works with network manager (Gloria RC) but i would really want to use the microsd slot. With lsusb it reports it as a huawei 220/270.

I already called support, but they say i should boot up the pc with the stick inserted, but that doesnt work either. UMTSmon crashes, wvdial says it cannot find a carrier, (i've done wvdialconf) but networkmanager makes it work.

What should i do?

What's your problem?
That you have to use USB instead of a MicroSD slot?
Your post is really confusing

Well, the stick plugs in via USB, but on windows it can act as a MircoSD card reader. Then you can put data on it. But now with Mint i cannot mount that microsd card. T-Mobile says they support linux, but their customer support doesn't know it either.

I just want to use the card reader built into the stick. The modem works fine.

the card reader built into the stick

OK this is a bit different from what I thought
I'll add it to my list and see if I can find something
Edit
Please post the output of lsusb for that dongle - can't really do anything before, I need the ID

I have an observation but no answer. I tried my E176 under Ubuntu which it recognises it as a USB wireless broadband modem and it functions correctly as a modem. But Ubuntu does not recognise that it is also a memory device and will not mount the SD card. Then I tried it under Mandriva 2008 which happily sees the E176 as a memory device and mounts the Micro SD card contents, but will not accept that it is also a modem. Any ideas?

There is some application - and I've forgotten the details - that set devices with both a storage capacity and some other capacity back and forth between the capacities
It'll take me a while to catch up on this again - time that I don't have
