Anyone want to guide me on how to set it up with pfSense?
what i want to do is to connect through the usb port.
in windows its a storage device at first, after the driver install it brings a virtual network adapter of some sort
(HUAWEI Mobile Connect - Network Adapter)
if i am not mistaken it would list in ifconfig?
also in in /dev i get a few cuau, ppp wan mode through webui brought no success
[2.1-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/dev(14): usbconfig -d 0.2 dump_device_desc ugen0.2: <huawei mobile="" huawei="">at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON bLength = 0x0012 bDescriptorType = 0x0001 bcdUSB = 0x0200 bDeviceClass = 0x0000 bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000 bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000 bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040 idVendor = 0x12d1 idProduct = 0x1506 bcdDevice = 0x0102 iManufacturer = 0x0002 <huawei>iProduct = 0x0001 <huawei mobile="">iSerialNumber = 0x0000 <no string="">bNumConfigurations = 0x0001 [2.1-RELEASE][email@example.com]/dev(15):</no></huawei></huawei></huawei>
ugen0.2: <huawei>at usbbus0
u3g0: at uhub0, port1 addr 2
umass0: at uhub0, port 1, addr2
That looks like a device already in modem mode (PID: 1506).
Exactly what devices do you have in /dev? Please copy and paste the output of:
What was the result of trying to setup a ppp interface? What did the ppp log say?
Edit: The Huawei E5331 is a mobile hotspot device. Is that what you have? How are you connecting to it?
