Huawei E176 / T-Mobile web'n'walk Stick IV



  • I want to use a Huawei E176 / T-Mobile web'n'walk Stick IV as a backup for my two ADSL WAN connections. Therefore I've connected the stick via USB and used the following instructions for setup: http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Configuring_3G_modems
    Unfortunately, I don't get a connection. It always appears the following error message in the log file: "ppp: [opt2_link0] chat: The remote modem did not answer."
    My provider is T-Mobile Germany with the following settings:

    APN: internet.t-mobile
    User: t-mobile
    Password: tm
    Dial-number: *99#

    What could be the cause of this? Does this USB stick work with pfSense in general?



  • Ok, I've updated the stick with a new firmware and now it seems so that i get connected. Next problem is, that I don't get an ip-adress. What could be the reason for this?
