my modem is a huawey k3520 or k3565, don't really recal exactly which one of these... i'm glad i helped... i'll try your suggestion tonight, right now i'm at work and using windows
... thanks a lot, viking777
That surprises me. I have a k3565 as well and it works with every kernel/distro I have ever used it with, without any support from usb_modeswitch
. Sadly the usb_modeswitch
web site http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch
does not specifically report either model you mention as being supported which leads me to think this might not be the solution you are looking for - sorry
You could give it a try if you wanted, it won't do any harm, but don't get your hopes up.
I have just had another look at my own usb_modeswitch
.conf and this is what it says:
Huawei E220 (aka "Vodafone EasyBox II", aka "T-Mobile wnw Box Micro")
# Huawei E230
# Huawei E270
# Huawei E870
# and probably most other Huawei devices (just adapt product ID)
The last line being the most appropriate, so maybe there is some hope here. If you don't know the product ID then all you have to do is to plug in your modem, go through the procedure you use to detach the storage, but do not connect with it then run the command:
In a terminal. You will get some output something like this:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:a101 Suyin Corp. Acer CrystalEye Webcam
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
You need to identify which is your modem (if you can't do that initially then first run lsusb without it plugged in then run it again with it plugged in and note the difference). In my case I know my modem is called ONDA Communications so its ID is 19d2:0001.
Later on in the usb_modeswitch
.conf entry for the E220 (you can use this same entry) you will see lines like this:
You then change those figures to the ID for your modem (but with 0x in front) so if it were my modem above the entry would change to:
The last step is to remove the comment mark from ONE of the two lines as below:
# choose one of these:
Then probably reboot and try again. If uncommenting the first of those lines does not work then recomment it and uncomment the second, reboot and try again.
Hope that helps.
