Hi all,
I'm tring to make my router an AP with a vodafone UMTS modem (Huawei E220)
I've sucessefuly configured the modem however I would like to know how could I use the buttuns to disable and enabling the connection. I've found this:

How about a little script to monitor the SES button and connect?
root@OpenWrt:~# vi /usr/sbin/dialmon
#!/bin/sh
junk=0
until [ $junk -eq 1 ]
do
        sleep 1
        read junk </proc/sys/button
done
# turn on white LED in SES button
echo 32 > /proc/sys/diag
/usr/sbin/pppd call cingular
root@OpenWrt:~# chmod +x /usr/sbin/dialmon

Let's use SES amber to show connect status. Add echo to these files:
root@OpenWrt:~# cd /etc/ppp
root@OpenWrt:~# rm ip-up ip-down
root@OpenWrt:~# cp /rom/etc/ppp/ip-up .
root@OpenWrt:~# cp /rom/etc/ppp/ip-down .
root@OpenWrt:~# vi ip-up
#!/bin/sh
[ -z "$6" ] || env -i ACTION="ifup" INTERFACE="$6" PROTO=ppp /sbin/hotplug "iface"
echo 33 > /proc/sys/diag
root@OpenWrt:~# vi ip-down
#!/bin/sh
[ -z "$6" ] || env -i ACTION="ifdown" INTERFACE="$6" PROTO=ppp /sbin/hotplug "iface"
echo 0 >/proc/sys/diag

Now just run "dialmon &", and push the button!

******************************************************************************

However this doesn't work on asus.
Al the Information I've found was this:

The reset button does not work (due largely to mis-mapped /proc/sys/reset)
gpio 0 = RESTORE button (reset) (00 = unpressed, 01 = pressed)
gpio 1 = Power LED (enable = off, disable = on)
gpio 4 = EZ SETUP button (similar to linksys "button"?) (00 = unpressed, 01 = pressed)

Can anyone help me making a script using the buttons?

mkdir -p /etc/hotplug.d/button
touch /etc/hotplug.d/button/01-connect

and put this

if [ "$BUTTON" = "ses" ] ; then
 if [ "$ACTION" = "pressed" ] ; then
   (something like /usr/sbin/pppd call cingular etc.)
 fi
fi

Hi it doesn't work.
Again my problem is that i dont have the linksys router, mine is a Asus so i don't have the "ses" button. All I have is a LED (GPIO 1) and two buttons (GPIO 0 and GPIO 4).

Can anyone explain what should I do in order to use them? Seems like noone did this in asus.

If I make the procedure as in linksys

Code:

root@OpenWrt:~# vi /usr/sbin/dialmon
#!/bin/sh
junk=0
until [ $junk -eq 1 ]
do
        sleep 1
        read junk </proc/sys/button
done
# turn on white LED in SES button
echo 32 > /proc/sys/diag
/usr/sbin/pppd call cingular
root@OpenWrt:~# chmod +x /usr/sbin/dialmon

I Get this error:

Code:

/usr/sbin/dialmon: 8: cannot open /proc/sys/button: No such file

install a script into /etc/hotplug.d/button
it will be called when a button is pressed or released
you can check for these variables:
ACTION=<pressed|released>
BUTTON=<button name>
SEEN=<time since last press or release event>
polling the button state from a script is a very ugly solution...

@Casemod: I have wl-500gp as well, and this script working.  When you press EZSetup button then $BUTTON has "ses" value.

I'm sorry I have a limited knowlage on linux... Wich script should I install in  /etc/hotplug.d/button ??

I may be getting this wrong sorry, but if i use the linksys script I cant find the directory /proc/sys/button.

Can someone give me an example, for instance to light up the GPIO 1 LED when I press the EZSetup button ( GPIO 4) just to see if there is anything wrong with the modules or that? Im confused :S

Thanks!

mkdir -p /etc/hotplug.d/button
touch /etc/hotplug.d/button/01-led
chmod 777 /etc/hotplug.d/button/01-led
vi /etc/hotplug.d/button/01-led

and put this into file

#!/bin/sh

if [ "$BUTTON" = "ses" ] ; then
 if [ "$ACTION" = "pressed" ] ; then
  LED=`cat /proc/diag/led/power`
  if [ "$LED" = "0" ]; then
    echo "1" > /proc/diag/led/power
  else
    echo "0" > /proc/diag/led/power
  fi

Hi, The Led script works ok, but if I put  /usr/sbin/pppd call cingular it does't do anything.

I've tried this script

 if [ "$BUTTON" = "ses" ] ; then
            if [ "$ACTION" = "pressed" ] ; then
               reboot
                fi
            fi

It works fine as the LED but if I write /usr/sbin/pppd call cingular instead of reboot nothing happens.

Any ideas??

Thanks!

hi, try this

echo 1| /usr/sbin/pppd call cingular

The discussion might have continued from here.
