    any linux driver for USB modem ?


    How does Fedora recognise USB modem ?
    I have a USB Modem that works on Windows but It does not work on Fedora 10 linux. It is for Reliance Netconnect (India) and USB modem is HUAWEI EC 1260
    Can any one please suggest what is to be done.
    I tried editing the wvdial.conf in /etc/wvdial.conf as

    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = #777
    New PPPD = yes
    Username = 93********** (the phone number)
    Password = 93********** (the phone number)
    CBaud = 460800

    but it does not seem to work
    I even tried changing the Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 to Modem = /dev/ttyUSB2 but I get the message as
    --> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory

    can anyone please suggest what to do
    I tried google but the post only mention what to edit in wvdial.conf file
    Please suggest what to do ?
    Thanks and regards to all

    Fedora 11 has KPPP as dial-up manager. There is one huge list of several types of modem and many USB types. Use the dialogs to pick your spot. You will then get a message "Modem is busy" - ignore and close the boxes. Then on your Fedora taskbar click the connection manager.

    With my Motorola V3 connected before boot up, the "Auto Mobile Broadband" connection gets done under Start menu conditions. It is recognized as a USB modem.

    Also, there is a method to make sure you are using the correct /dev for your modem. Before you plug it in, run this command.
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Now plug the USB device in. It should show messages, one of them being the ttyx of the device.
