This page describes how to make a HUAWEI e353 work with Zeroshell 1.0beta14, which does not work out of the box.

  1. Log into zeroshell web interface.
  2. System > Setup > Startup/Cron > Pre Boot
  3. Paste the following command lines:
  4. # HUAWEI e353 dongle setup
    usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1446 -P 0x12d1 -V 0x1506 -M "55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000" -n 1 -m 0x01
    modprobe option -r
    modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12D1 product=0x1506
  5. Press the “Test” button, to make sure ugly error messages don’t appear.
  6. Check the Status checkbox
  7. Press the Save button
  8. Reboot
  9. Log into zeroshell web interface.
  10. System > Setup > Network > New 3G Modem
  11. The one i have works with ttyUSB3. However try them all out. I think ttyUSB0 was connecting as well, however it wasn’t working.
I don’t think this is the cleanest method. I was hoping that a modification to /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf would be enough, however i wasn’t sure how to modify that file in such a way that it would not change after a reboot. Maybe storing it in /Database/etc? I canot seem to find documentation on how the boot process of zeroshell works, and how/where to modify things, if necessary.
