When I searched for "Huawei ec152 fedora/linux" on the internet, I found a very few results, and that left me wondering if this device would work on Fedora.
Hence, I am posting this as an informational thread: the new Huawei ec152 USB broadband device works out of the box in Fedora 15.
All you need to do is
- go to Edit Connections through Network Manager
- add a connection in the "Mobile Broadband" section
- In the new dialogue box that opens up, "HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES HUAWEI Mobile" should already be selected. Click Forward.
Then, I selected (for all Tata Photon+ users in India)
- Country: India
- Provider: Tata Indicom (Photon+)
- Edit the connection you just made and make both username and password "internet".
Then connect using NM. It takes a few tries for it to get a connection, but that happens even in windoze. Also, after you plugin in the device, it takes a little time for "Tata Indicom (Photon+) Connection" to show up in NM. Currently posting this thread using the same device.
