Thumbs up Tata Photon's new Huawei ec152 works on Fedora 15!

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.

Re: Tata Photon's new Huawei ec152 works on Fedora 15!!

Hello,

I'm havin trouble connecting the same device on slackware-13
kernel-version: linux-2.6.36.2

Does Fedora having some kind of patch ?

Also It may be helpful if you provide details on how you connected the device
And what is device name in '/dev/' ? I think it is /dev/ttyACM0 (according to manual)


Bye.

Hi Sach1n,

I tried this out in F15 Beta which I used for a brief period of time.

This device does not work on F14, so it must be a patch or an update that brought this functionality to F15. Right now however, I am not using F15. Would switch to it once there's a final release. I can answer your questions only then.
