Tata photon Huawei and MTS ZTE Blaze in Ubuntu 13.04 Wheezy

Before you start

Ensure that you have installed wvdial, usbmodeswitch and usbmodeswitch_data

# dpkg -l | grep wvdial
# dpkg -l | grep modeswitch

Install it from your ISO or any other source. Be careful about the proper version is installed.

Be sure that USB driver modules are loaded.

# lsmod | grep usb

This should show that USB Serial driver is loaded
# usbserial              36911  2 option,usb_wwan

Load it if not.
# modprobe usbserial

Tata photon+ Huawei EC1561 Manufacturer ID 12d1 Product ID 1446

$ sudo su -

Connect your dongle

# lsusb
This should show the device as

Bus 003 Device 009: ID 12d1:140b Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. EC1260 Wireless Data Modem HSD USB Card

# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1446
# usb_modeswitch -I -W -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1\:1446

Run wvdialconf. Then make it to look like the one below. This is a simple configuration. I will show you how to add both Tata Huawei EC1561 and MTS ZTE together at the bottom of this document.

[Dialer Defaults]
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Phone = #777
ISDN = 0
Username = internet
Init1 = ATZ

Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 9600

Now dial to connect...

# wvdial

That's it - you are now connected to the internet. You can create the Connection in GUI through System -> Preference -> Network connection

The file /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1\:1446 may not exist by default depending on your USB ModesSwitch pkg. Create it with the entries as shown below.

Create a file called /etc/modprobe.d/usb-storage.conf with the following entries

options usb-storage delay_use=3

# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0xfffe
# usb_modeswitch -v 0x19d2 -p 0xfffe -H -W



Run wvdialconf. Then make it to look like the one below. This is a simple configuration. I will show you how to add both Tata Huawei EC1561 and MTS ZTE together at the bottom of this document.
