Unable to connect T-mobile dongle with Mint Linux

this is really very annoying . I am not able to use the T-Mobile dongle on my machine running on the Mint Linux. I call the T-Mobile support and even they were not able to solve the issue and in the end I was told that the Linux was not supported despite me having proof it has worked on another distro. I have updated everything on the my computer with update manager still having this problem. now I weak on the command line aspect so please help me to solve this issue I would really appreciate if this help


Code:
sudo wvdialconf
Found an USB modem on /dev/ttyACM0.
Modem configuration written to /etc/wvdial.conf.
ttyACM0<Info>: Speed 460800; init "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2"
ttyACM1<Info>: Speed 460800; init "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0"
ttyACM1A<Info>: Speed 460800; init "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0"

Code:
GNOME PPP: STDERR: ttyACM0<Info>: Device or resource busy
GNOME PPP: STDERR: Modem Port Scan<*1>: ACM0
GNOME PPP: STDERR: ttyACM1<Info>: Device or resource busy
GNOME PPP: STDERR: Modem Port Scan<*1>: ACM1
GNOME PPP: STDERR: ttyACM1A<Info>: Device or resource busy

Code:
sudo lsof /dev/ttyAMC1
lsof: WARNING: can't stat() fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon file system /home/guest/.gvfs
Output information may be incomplete.

Look like a resource conflict. i think it is connection on the modem on ttyACM0, ttyACM1 & ttyACM1A.that is the serial device, you will need it once . Take a bit of the entry on the wvdial config.

Re: Unable to connect T-mobile dongle with Mint Linux

The problem is that s what in /dev. if it?s something similar to a windows BIOS. I don?t want to start messing in that. And what do i leave? ttyACM0 perhaps? i'm too fresh at this to have much of an idea if I?m honest

well i opened wvdial.conf and get

Code:
[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Stupid Mode = 1
Modem Type = USB Modem
Phone = *99#
New PPPD = yes
ISDN = 0
Username = user
Password = user
Baud = 460800

[Dialer TMobile]
Init2 = ATZ
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 &D2 &C1 S0=0 +IFC=2,2
Init5 = AT+CGDCONT=1,?IP?,?general.t-mobile.uk?
ISDN = 0
Modem = /dev/ttyATC1
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 460800
The latter look as if it is correct but the above us the default setting

Re: Unable to connect T-mobile dongle with Mint Linux

Can you tell me which part is not working . does the device is not detected at all when you connect the T-mobile dongle. Is it possible for you to give the sudo lsmod , sudo ifconfig ?a and sudo dmesg

I am connected to the gnone-ppp. And I already did that the small icon in the taskbar . great option to solve the conflict issue although I am not that sure how to sort that out . the command line throws up that strange error message I posted

through ppp? by way of your dongle plugged in, and when you right click that applet in case it be the in linux mint, then left click , choose edit connections and in the window that appear. You will see there will be a mobilebroadband tab, choose it and then press the put in connection button plus follow the steps.

Re: Unable to connect T-mobile dongle with Mint Linux

Seems just fine to me. Replace the wvdial.conf to /dev/ttyATC0. And on the udev just leave ttyATC0. Save the rule if you need them . I as well like the 'new pppd' line, for the reason that that is most likely telling it to start a fresh instance anyway, which you just require if you have a few modems.
