(solved) modem huawei E1750 USB stick not connecting
« on: December 09, 2011, 01:22:49 PM »
Hello,
I was trying to use today my usb on a coleague netbook ( see my usb setup in http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,11509.msg61207.html#msg61207 )

It started correctly, and looked good, see  http://imagebin.org/187816 ,

but it did not connect to the internet (error with opera or minefield).

what happens? any idea?

hi floppy,

i can confirm, the establishing of your modem-connection looks pretty good.
but your dns points in the wrong destination...
check your resolv.conf, it points probably to your local router for your lan-connection.
so better delete your /etc/resolv.conf that your ppp0-session can create a new one,
that is appropriate for your modem-connection.
you need the right dns-routing for your modem-communication...
and on the other side check that your lan-device is down,
f.e. with "sudo ifconfig eth0 down".

good luck, you've almost succeeded!

A big big thank netnomad.
This is correct, the resolv.conf had a value from my LAN network (the values indicated in the first link in this thread were nomore there).
This is possibly coming from a backup done during I was in the net in the house.
I have now to think about using different backups depending of the choosen connection (usb, wlan..).
Post done from the usb modem!

you don't need different backups, stay lean and flexible.
have a look at my very basic scripts pin, pon and poff:
