ID number for network card for usb dongle huawei E353
« on: May 18, 2013, 05:05:22 am »

Hi folks, I'm trying to connect to internet using VL.
I have read and tried to follow instructions kindly offered in a sticky on the subject by forum member: easuter, but when I make use of <lsusb>, as per instructions,
I get this output:

Code: [Select]
bash-4.2# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 04b3:310c IBM Corp. Wheel Mouse
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 04b3:3025 IBM Corp. NetVista Full Width Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 12d1:1506 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E398 LTE/UMTS/GSM Modem/Networkcard
bash-4.2#
I'm then told that I should be able to glean from above output information about the chip on my card and an address for the card, as described below:

Code: [Select]

Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 1 Device 2: ID 0409:0058 NEC Corp. HighSpeed Hub
Bus 1 Device 4: ID 0000:0000
Bus 1 Device 3: ID 083a:4505 Accton Technology Corp.
Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 5 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

One can see at once that the author of the advice can indeed obtain the following:
" the really important piece of information is the ID number.
In my case, it is 083a:4505"

But if you compare his output to mine at top of post, you see immediately the difference: to wit: there is no ID number given for my network card.

Question: how do proceed?

You did not refer to which VL version you are using. Also
please when referencing a link post it so  we can see what
you are following. I was a little confused  which is your output
and which is the example output.

You referenced this:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 12d1:1506 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E398 LTE/UMTS/GSM Modem/Networkcard
Then say there is no device id. If the above is your output then your address is 12d1:1506

I found this forum post that may help:
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=9443.0

There is a reference to usb modeswitch.
