Latest pfsense with Huawei e392 only shows cuau0 cuau1
Hi - I have a pfsense supported e392 usb modem and it refuses to open up it's com ports to usb (cuaU0.0,cuaU0.1 etc) - What steps can I take to rectify this? How can I use usb_modeswitch?
I have tried the command mentioned in the wiki to eject the cdrom device but this makes no difference.
usbconfig -d ugen4.2 dump_device_desc

What is the firmware version on your modem?
In which mode are you going to use your modem - RAS or NDIS (means PPP or Network Card)?
If you see no com port created in pfSense - plug your modem into any computer, make sure it's detected by the OS and check from any terminal emulator:
