Modem problem in ubuntu 8.04

Question

I have a Huawei usb modem [built into my CDMA WLL phone]. To get it working in Ubuntu 7.10, I followed instructions on the net and added the following file named “026_ti_usb_3410.rules” in /etc/udev/rules.d

> #TI USB 3410
> SUBSYSTEM==”usb_device” ACTION==”add”
> SYSFS{idVendor}==”0451″,SYSFS{idProduct}==”3410″ \
> SYSFS{bNumConfigurations}==”2″ \
> SYSFS{bConfigurationValue}==”1″ \
> RUN+=”/bin/sh -c ‘echo 2 > /sys%p/device/bConfigurationValue'”

After this the modem started working. But with ubuntu 8.04 my modem doesnt work.

Answer

It seems the driver for your model is broken in ubuntu 8.04 See
http://www.pkuhar.com/blog/?p=15 which provides a patch for the problem.

find the ti_usb_3410_5052.ko file in your system

you can use the command sudo find / -iname “ti_usb_3410_5052.ko”

Download the patched driver from the site, uncompress it and replace
the old one with this,

And change the udev rule as per the post.
