    Hi,

    I found this project very interesting.

    My job is to share a 3G connection over wireless in my house.
    I have an HUAWEI E1692 and a the ipw2200 BG wireless chipset.

    I use zeroshell 1.0 beta 12.

    The modem isn’t recognized by zeroshell so I modify the configuration file (/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf) of the application usb_modeswitch.
    I append at the end of this file the following lines:


    # Huawei E1692
    DefaultVendor= 0x12d1
    DefaultProduct= 0x1446

    TargetVendor= 0x12d1
    TargetProduct= 0x140c

    MessageEndpoint = 0x01
    MessageContent="55534243000000000000000000000011060000000000000000000000000000"

    CheckSuccess=5

    Then i launch

    usb_modeswitch

    and

    modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x140c

    and the modem is correctly recognized.

    My first issue is was when I rebooted the machine and the changes are lost.
    So, how can I permanently save at least the configuration file of usb_modeswitch?

    The second issue is about ipw2200. MadWifi don’t recognize this chipset. I put the firmware of the ipw2200 project in the folder /lib/firmware, so I reinserted the module ipw2200 but iwconfig not found any wireless interface. Is there anyone who managed to get it working?

    Thanks a lot,
    maurizio

    Hi,
    I had the same problem with usb_modeswitch and my ZTE MF110 usb 3g modem, I solve it adding the next lines to my post-boot script

    echo '###################################################' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '#' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '# ZTE MF110' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '#' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '#Contributor: Fernando Anthony Ristagno' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '###################################################' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo 'DefaultVendor=0x19d2' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo 'DefaultProduct=0x2000' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo 'TargetVendor=0x19d2' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo 'TargetProduct=0x0031' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '#MessageEndpoint=0x1' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
    echo '#MessageContent="55534243b8fe6681000000000000061b000000020000000000000000000000"' >> /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf

    usb_modeswitch

    I hope this could help you or someone else, just replace Vendor and Product with yours.
    Thanks to “Fernando Anthony Ristagno”

    Greetings

    Sir, sorry for this stupid question,

    My usb modem is currently ZTE MF-627, Axesstel MV-140 and AC-2726

    1. how can i determine my default vendor and product + target vendor and product

    2. Also the value for messegge end point and content.

    3.also the value of Checksucess

    4. I also notice that the original zeroshell usb_modeswitch.conf has “;” in front of the commands while your’s don’t. Is it fine?

    Thank’s a lot for your time, sir. I really appreciate it.

    Go to this page http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/usb_modeswitch.setup and find your modems there, I didn’t see the neither 627 nor the MV-140. The other is there but you’ll need to try different configurations and see which one works.
    For the 627 you might try other ZTE configurations and see if it works.
    You don’t need the “;” in front of the value.

    Hope it helps!
