trying to get openwrt on a TP-Link TL-WR703N to work with my Huawai E303 for quite a while now, seems I'm a bit slow in getting forward, hope there are some comments to speed me up.
TL-WR703N (1.7 FW), installed "OpenWrt Barrier Breaker r36006"
Huawai E303, just arrived from EPLUS Germany (12d1:14db)
OpenWrt install was cumbersome, but once I noticed I don't have to compile (thought i had to because of 1.7 HW) it worked fine. LUCI install failed twice, seems the device (4MB) is to small.
Now - I've been struggeling with the E303:
- lsusb shows 12d1:14db from the beginning. Played with usb_modeswitch w/o any avail until I read a comment that :14db means I don't have to do so.
- opkg install usbutils kmod-usb-serial kmod-usb2 kmod-usb-uhci kmod-usb-ohci usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data comgt
- opkg install kmod-usb-acm kmod-usb-serial-option
usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x14db
With that done, I get dmesg to notice a GSM Modem. That's good? and took quite a while.

I thought with the modem up I'd be good - but i can't get a new device to show up for IP configuration?
Any suggestions are very welcome :-)
