Huawei E220 3G modem with pfsense 2.0 Beta4



  • Hi,

    i followed the docs but my E220 modem (Vodafone) can't connect. Some people get the E220 to work here. So is there a kind of howto?

    The modem is recognized by u3g driver and i got 2 devices in Gui. But my ppp connection dont come up.

    Provider set
    SIM PIN set
    init strings dont set

    "modem script failed after CPIN command"

    plz help me :)

    Cya



  • I would disable sim pin and test again.

    Do a search on E220

    To get more hardware info some commands can be found in this post http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,27211.0.html



  • Hi Perry,

    you were right :D without PIN it works fine.

    Is it possible to determine the network the modem is connected to (GPRS,UMTS,HSDPA)?

    How to start a search on E220?

    cya

    Hi Perry

    on some dongles or 3g-modems you have some LEDs blinking in different colors.
    They represent GSM, EDGE or 3g.

    example:

    " … rapid green blinks: Modem is powered -- no network available
    Blinking green          : GPRS or EDGE available
    Blinking blue            : 3G network available "

  • Hi,

    are there some parameters to prevent the UMTS Modem to use other mobile networks?

    I dont want my UMTS modem with vodafone sim dial to other networks than vodafone.
