    T-mobile USB Mobile Broadband


    hi guys,

    I picked up one of these dongles the other day.. its packaged as the t-mobile broadband stick 615, i think it is the huawei e173...

    I am running LFS 6.3 with 2.6.22.5 (a bit old I know, but I will be updating and would rather download everything in current lfs instead of windows and coping things about)

    When I insert the dongle, the kernel finds the internel memory where windows software is installed, /dev/sr0 and the sdcard reader as /dev/sg0.

    Other instructions I have found stated to use "eject /dev/sr0" then is should be detected at /dev/ttyUSB{1..4}... eject works, if I use -v it say rin correctly, but dmesg doesn't change and no new ttys..

    I went through the kernel and added usb-acm support, but couldn't find anything for the huawei modems, even in search (may have been typo but don't think so).

    anyone know any posible kenerl options I could be missing? Or a different way to using eject?

    ps using windows to write this, no internet in linux at the moment
