Greetings,

Using this:
http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/3gdongle

I tried adding

I believe to have all needed packages installed:

Can someone help me with this configuration?

Best regards...

replace '12d1 1505 ff'  with '12d1 1505'

Install OpenWRT's mode switching package ( usbmode ), remove the echo command you added to rc.local
12d1:1505 is the usb id for the dongle in windows install mode (cd-rom mode) and will be switched to 12d1:1506 by usbmode.
The option driver supports the 12d1:1506 id so no need to use the newid function.

Thanks, JonnyM, it seems that modem is now connected (I'll try to configure it farther). The only thing I'm not sure is normal: there are three ttyUSB in my modem now:

Which one should I use?..

Best regards...

It's normal to have three ttyUSB* devices.
Use the one that works best (try them all in your /etc/config/network).

ttyUSB0 is the modem device

You seem to have multiple disconnects of the dongle, MR13U may have problem to supply enough current on the usb bus.
In such case use a separately powered usb hub in between router and dongle.

Good evening,

Got some free time to configure this dongle...
Still having problems with that article (http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/3gdongle):
First of all: they say:

Chat configuration

Now we need to check if the default chatscript does work with your 3g provider or not.

You can find it here '/etc/chatscripts/3g.chat', it looks like this:

, but I don't even have chatscripts (although I have chat installed:
root@OpenWrt:/# opkg list-installed | grep chat
chat - 2.4.5-10

Then:

Establishing connection

Just type on console 'ifup wan'

Now check dmesg logread for successful connect:

but after "ifup wan" absolutely nothing happening...

And if I'm starting pppd manually:

Tue Dec 17 18:27:38 2013 daemon.info pppd[1288]: Exit.

/etc/chatscripts/3g.chat is included in comgt, so install it.

For a working setup under Attitude Adjustment 12.09, you need these packages:

comgt
kmod-usb2
kmod-usb-serial
kmod-usb-serial-option
kmod-usb-acm
usb-modeswitch
usb-modeswitch-data
sdparm
luci-proto-3g

In trunk I think there is no usb-modeswitch-data package anymore...

Then add to your /etc/config/network:

config interface wan2
        option ifname ppp0
        option pincode 1234
        option device /dev/ttyUSB0
        option apn your_providers_apn
        option service umts
        option proto 3g
        option auto '0'

Also edit 3g.chat and change the dial out string, if needed.
For example my provider in Greece requires this:
"ATD*99#"

Reboot or do a "/etc/init.d/network restart" and you are ready to... "ifup wan2" smile

PS: Don't forget to add wan2 to zone wan in /etc/config/firewall

config zone
        option name 'wan'
        ...
        ...
        ...
        ...
        ...
        option network 'wan wan2'

but after "ifup wan" absolutely nothing happens: logs are empty.

I don't see sdparm and luci-proto-3g in your package list.
Also in your wan config, there is no option for the apn and you use service cdma/evdo instead of umts.

Futhermore, you don't need to have usb-uhci and usb-ohci, these packages are for USB 1.1 and I suppose you have a USB 2.0 port.

Do the above and if you can't connect paste logread here...

I also saw this in your previous post:

Tue Dec 17 18:27:08 2013 daemon.notice pppd[1288]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/0

/dev/pts/0 is the pseudo-terminal device which is created by an ssh session.
How did you manage this? tongue

I would suggest go back to factory defaults and configure the device again, properly this time.

EC306 is a CDMA modem and CDMA does not use APN.
Dialstring for CDMA is #777

Hello,

angelos,
sdparm is used to configure devices, which represent themselves as SCSI-devices, like:

[426956.968000] sd 17:0:0:1: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0
[426956.992000] sd 17:0:0:1: [sda] Attached SCSI removable disk

-- definitely not my case. And I'm not using LUCI, thus no reasons to install it's modles.
Also I'm configuring CDMA modem => no APN and corresponding service type.
Thanks for usb-uhci and usb-ohci -- I didn't know this. I'll remove this modules -- let's see if it'll change something.
And I managed to get "/dev/pts/0" by running daemon "by hand" -- to see if it'll give me some errors I could work with.

JonnyM, the problem is (as I see it) -- that chap-script even not being called... So, it's seems, something broken "before it"...

"cdma/evdo" is not a valid value for "option service". It must be either "cdma" or "evdo". Also your wan interface lacks "option proto 3g" so OpenWrt does not even know that your wan iface is supposed to be configured as 3g.

jow, thanks for the service and proto corrections (I totally messed the second-one (and I'm sure that I've seem service exactly as cdma/evdo in some config on the forum...)). But unfortunately I see no changes at all:

jow, neryba,
Thank you very much! -- It's connected now.

P.S.
Never configure your router @midnight.

I am planning to buy the same dongle, i.e. EC-306/ EC306. I intend to try openwrt on my TL-WR1043ND router.

Does anyone know if it will work?

The discussion might have continued from here.
