>After spending 10 days away from my pretty laptop and in my first day to office in 2007, I decided to fix the network issue for my Huawei E321 Data Modem card.
We had just been given this card and as usual I found that there are no drivers for linux. After few google queries I found some sites which claimed to make this work, but when I followed the instruction, it did not work for me. I was pleased as I had some reason to make this work on Linux.
So, if you do a
#sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001
you should be able to see the /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1. If you cannot then
blame it on udev and follow the following 2 steps..
#mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
#mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
Now its time to start configuring your modem, and for that I used wvdial.
On your Linux Distribution edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file as follow
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS)
Password = *******
Phone = #777
Stupid Mode = 1
And now do a wvdial tata and start browsing…
It should just work.
The CD accompaning this card carries a program to call, send sms, store contact details. Still trying to work on that…
