Sorry, no modem was detected!  Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

It is indeed not detecting a modem. All it's seeing is a USB Storage device

It is possible that you need to compile drivers for that thing

That's what I thought as well, but it might not be true.

I just got hold of another model (a Huawei K3520, I think), and my /var/log/messages is almost the same as the Headhunter posted above.

BUT, running wvdialconf detects it!
I couldn't actually try a connection as I don't know the username and password, but I suspect it would work even though it doesn't seem to show up in /var/log/messages (or at least I didn't spot it).

You can see that on the second modem, it successfully links the device to /dev/ttyUSB0. So you whould be able to connect with that one.

Try doing "wvdialconf" as root with this second modem attached.

As for the first modem you tried, Headunter, it seems in my case the device is indeed linked in /var/log/messages, but *before* the vl-mount messages. If I just do tail, I only see the vl-mount messages, and nothing about the modem.
So, instead of doing "tail /var/log/messages", do "tail -f /var/log/messages" (with that first modem).
Then, and only then, attach the modem and see everything new in the output.
If you just do tail, you might be missing important info that comes before.

In my case:
Code:
Nov  8 13:57:37 zequinha kernel: usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4

Nov  8 13:57:43 zequinha vl-hot_mount: /dev/vl-hot/sda not mountable...
Nov  8 13:57:43 zequinha vl-hot_mount: Finishing vl-hot_mount...

As you see, the last part is almost identical to yours, but before it displays the crucial bits that say the modem is attached to ttyUSB0, etc..

Something's definitely there.
Judging by this bit at least:
Code:
Nov  8 19:34:36 lappis kernel: drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for GSM modem (1-port)
Nov  8 19:34:36 lappis kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver option
Nov  8 19:34:36 lappis kernel: drivers/usb/serial/option.c: USB Driver for GSM modems: v0.7.1

But it's not attached to /dev/tty, so I don't know how this could be solved....

Have you tried "wvdialconf" with your second modem (the one that shows the line "Nov  8 01:49:47 lappis kernel: usb 1-2: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0")?
That should work just fine, I would think...

I found this istructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-858032.html
Login as root to try it.

Untar the Linux driver that comes on CD into a local directory
Locate a file named rules/10-Huawei-Datacard.rules and open it with an editor
Change first line from

Quote
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idProduct}=="1001", SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", RUN+="/sbin/rmmod pl2303"

to

Quote
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idProduct}=="1001", SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001"

Save and copy it to /etc/udev/rules.d
Run in a terminal:

Code:
$ chown root:root /etc/udev/rules.d/10-Huawei-Datacard.rules
$ chmod 644 /etc/udev/rules.d/10-Huawei-Datacard.rules

Run install script in driver directory (consent to reboot)
After reboot, open a terminal and run:

Code:
$ tail -f /var/log/messages

ONLY NOW you can insert your dongle
Look in terminal that something like this shows up:

Quote
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.739133] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.739367] usb 2-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.742277] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.1: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.742420] usb 2-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.744227] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.2: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.744356] usb 2-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB2
Jul 13 09:17:24 kernel: [ 340.746216] usbserial_generic 2-1:1.3: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected

The method looks fine to me, but if you don't have the CD with the "linux drivers" try

Code:
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001

Then you can diagnose again by running tail -f /var/log/messages and plugging the device.

ok I found this now:

SUBSYSTEM=="block", \
ACTION=="add", \
SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", \
SYSFS{idProduct}=="1003", \
OPTIONS="ignore_device"


Put this in a file /etc/udev/rules.d/
Reboot, if I understand correctly this should prevent the system to recognize the dongle as storage device. I note that this one uses another value as idProduct for the device, lets try that. After reboot as root run:

Code:
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1003
