I have a dongle HUAWEI Mobile Broadband E397. And SUSE Tumbleweed just downloaded and installed yesterday. Try to set up network connection trough the dongle. Saw a lot of topics, but most of them the problem is usb mode switch.
So My problem is that SUSE see the Dongle but network manager don’t want to create mobile connection. So output of lsusb :
Bus 007 Device 009: ID 12d1:1507 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Modem/Networkcard
so SUSE recognized it as USB modem, result of ls /dev/ttyUSB*:
where wwan0 is our dongle (if dongle is disconnect wwan0 disappear).
So it also see the device, and output of ip a (difference between without dongle and with) :
4: wwan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 100
link/ether 96:5B:d3:81:db:9a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Well I’m aslo tried to set up it from Network manager, but after choosing provider, it skip billing plan go to confirm settings and after confirmation nothing change, still no connection and only what you can do only create new one. So how to make it work? Thanks.
Hi, just a wild guess: do you have the PIN enabled in the SIM card inserted in the dongle?
If so, please insert the SIM in a phone, enter PIN number, then disable PIN usage and put the SIM card in the dongle again.
Or, the database for your provider and/or billing plan might just be out of date…
