    Its really strange that it didn't work properly for you. I have successfully used the E220 and E160G from 3 on openSUSE 10.3 and 11.0 as well as Fedora 9. One thing I've heard from some individuals is that sometimes you have to use the modem on Windows first, so that the modem part of the dongle is activated instead of just the mass storage. I'm not sure how true this is, but I never had problems with both of the modems because I tried them out on Windows first, so that I could get the correct dialup settings before setting them up on Linux.

    hi there,

    i'm having the same problem as ringo - trying to connect using 3 mobile's huawei e160g modem.

    the software i'm using is umtsmon on opensuse 11.

    here is the log from pppd. the last part is quite similar to what ringo got:

    using channel 6
    Using interface ppp0
    Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyUSB0

    Modem hangup
    Connection terminated.
    i know the modem works and coverage is fine because it works on my wife's windows laptop.

    from my log, and from ringo's log, it looks like modem hanged up after sending three IPCP ConfReq packets. from other logs i've seen posted, this should go up to 15-16 times. perhaps opensuse's default settings for pppd makes it timeout too fast? anyway i think i'll try playing with those ipcp-max settings. any other suggestions appreciated
