Gloria can't detect ZTE AC2726

Postby andydch on Wed Oct 28, 2009 12:33 am

I have internet usb modem which can be detected only by Windows XP & Vista. The brand is ZTE AC2726.
How to make Gloria can detect that modem so I can connect to internet?

Thanks

Hi

I assume you mean the Reliance Netconnect Modem - ZTE-AC2726.
Did you try and install the driver that came with the modem?
See if there is a .deb package on the CD.
Make sure it supports your kernel.

To see what kernel you are using run this command
in Terminal[Menu->Terminal]
Code: Select all
uname -a

also to assist in answering your questions, run this command
in Terminal[Menu->Terminal]
Code: Select all
lsusb

and post the output here.

cheers

Hi Mick,

These are the output
Code: Select all
uname -a

Linux andy-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

I did not see cd driver when I bought this modem. The drivers are inside the modem storage. Only Windows & Mac drivers, no Linux driver.

Any advice? :(

Hi Andy

Without the drivers Linux will not detect it as a USB
modem and will detect it instead as a storage device,
in this case a CD rom.(Bus 002 Device 008: ID 19d2:fff5)

My advice is to hunt down a Linux driver for your modem.
Start with the manufacturer's website.

Linux Mint is based on Debian so the preferred driver
would be in a .deb package.
A .deb file works like a Windows exe file, double
click it and follow the directions.Get this if you can.

Next in preference would be a an .rpm package
which is a Red Hat Linux package that can be converted to a .deb.

Then next would be a standard Linux tar package which you would
have to compile yourself.

And last is hand editing all the appropriate configuration files,
which is difficult and the results are not guaranteed.

Unfortunately there is no simple fix for your issue.

Good Luck
mick

That's great news! :D

Perhaps you could share how you did it, either here or in the tutorials
section, so others can learn how to do that.
