    Hi,

    I fixed your image links, to make it easier for folks to see your problem.

    It is very odd that a wrong mac address would cause that. what command(s) did you perform to change it?

    have you tried a reboot?

    do you have udev installed and running? a udev rule would do something like that. you can look in /etc. try something like this to see what you can find:

    Code:
    find /etc/ -type f -exec grep -H usb {} \;
    don't know if the busybox find applet can do all that, though.

    I use a build in command on the telnet of the modem. But it came out I inputted a wrong mac that's why.

    BTW, the find says command not found. And it does not have udev, but it has mdev.

    i don't understand this at all.

    yes, looking back, your busybox does not have the find applet compiled in, unfortunately.

    And it does not have udev, but it has mdev.
    okay, mdev is mini-udev. so it may still be a udev thing. look in /etc/ for udev/mdev files or directories. grep in them for usb*.
