Installing Telenor 3g Modem (Mobilt Bredband) on Ubuntu
As far as I know none of the turbo 3g GSM modems on the swedish market officially support Linux. However, I was able to get my Telenor modem working just fine on my Ubuntu Eee just now. I used the USB_ModeSwitch software along with swedish instructions from Hasain. Once my modem was recognized I ran sudo wvdialconf. I then edited my /etc/wvdial.conf to be:
[Dialer Defaults] #Init1 = ATZ Init1 = AT+CPIN=<YOUR PIN HERE> Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 Modem Type = Analog Modem Baud = 9600 New PPPD = yes Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 ISDN = 0 Phone = *99# Password = peter Username = peter
Note that you have to change the PIN above. I then ran sudo wvdial and voila - I was online! Well, online on a slow and unreliable connection that is. Oh well, I'm thinking of changing to tre.se one of these days. They supposedly have the best 3g network.
