Having spent a weekend firmware-updating, speeding up, network-unlocking, and making interoperable between computers (and a Netgear 3G Mobile Boardband router) a pair of Huawei modems, I thought it'd be useful for my reference -and maybe for yours- if I were to write up a few notes.This page is not about running dubious 'unlock' applications, but lower level manual hacks/tweaking.[TESTING] Requires Huawei 3G modem; needs to be the E220 or E1550 model for successfully testing the resolution of this issue.
The E220, among others, remains one of the most common 3G modems available.
[REGRESSION POTENTIAL] Low; this patch changes probing for Huawei devices only, and has been tested successfully with good support for the affected devices after the patch is installed, as well as unchanged behavior for many other devices (tested by cyphermox with a E1831 too).
The default hostname, login, and password are as follows: host:raspberrypi Username: pi Password: raspberry For this tutorial, I will be using putty.
On first boot, you will be prompted with a configuration tool called Raspi-Config.
I’m writing this blog to help anyone with an Edimax Nano USB Wi Fi adapter (EW-7811Un) configure a Wireless Accesss Point.
The main reason I wrote this post is because the Edimax was the first wireless adapter I ever recommended(turning a Raspberry Pi into a fully functional web server).I cannot connect the Huawei E220 usb modem since 11.10 beta1 (now I'm in beta2). I have found this in syslog Oct 5 ubuntu Network Manager[I tried that. The modem is not detected when I comment that lines. Tried with Huawei E153 was able to connect Internet. Appreciate if E220 can be fixed since I dont onw the E153.Ubuntu 11.10 is not usable until this is fixed and this force me to use window7.If you already have your operating system running, skip forward as needed. I recommend it because it is an optimized version of Debian built specifically for Raspberry Pi’s. To flash your SD Card, you will need to unzip the image and write it your SD card using Win32Disk Imager.This tool can also be used to after our initial setup to create an image of our finalized implementation(very useful as a backup).E220 works well with Linux, as support for it was added in Linux kernel 2.6.20 (2007-02-04 formatted with CDfs, thus emulating a CD-ROM drive.
