Fulvio,
First off, thanks for the awesome work and product!! I've been using it for over a year now and love it! I do have minor problem now that I wonder if you or someone on the forums can help me with.

Sprint updated my modem from a 595u to a 598u. The 595u worked fine, however, the 598u comes with a software burned into the ROM of the device they call "Tru-Install" that makes any OS (including Linux and ZS) to mount a drive. When I plug the device into my ZS server, it mounts it as a USB drive instead of a modem. The Ubuntu forums have directions around it, that including running the command "eject /CDROM0" from a prompt, but that doesn't seem to work in ZS.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Jeff

From Fulvio document

In alcuni casi, cos come per il telefono cellulare HSDPA N7010, necessario associare manualmente il modulo di conversione USB-Seriale al dispositivo. Per esempio, nel caso sopra indicato si usato il comando

modprobe usbserial vendor=0x05C6 product=0x6000

Per automatizzare il caricamento del modulo Kernel al boot sufficiente inserire il comando modprobe citato sopra, all'interno dello script di Pre Boot usando la sezione [Setup][Startup/Cron] dell'interfaccia web di Zeroshell. Se non si conosce a priori i valori da assegnare ai parametri vendor e product, sufficiente digitare il comando dmesg qualche secondo dopo aver connesso il modem al sistema. Tali parametri saranno visualizzati dal dmesg come idVendor e idProduct

use dmesg to show idVendor e idProduct
In preboot [Setup][Startup/Cron] insert (enable this section)
modprobe usbserial vendor=idVendor product=idProduct

Now ,if kernel support device, you must find 3g modem.

Bye

ZS is finding the device (according to dmesg), but it doesn't show up in the web interface as a detected modem. Here is the text for the log after connecting the device:

In some cases, as well as the HSDPA mobile phone N7010, you must manually associate the form of USB-serial conversion device. For example, in the case above we used the command

modprobe usbserial vendor = 0x6000 product = 0x05C6

To automate the loading of kernel module at boot time simply enter the command modprobe mentioned above, within the script Pre Boot using the section [Setup] [Startup / Cron] Zeroshell web interface. If you do not know a priori the values to be assigned to the vendor and product parameters, simply type the dmesg command a few seconds after you connected the modem to the system. These parameters will be displayed by dmesg as idVendor and idProduct

use dmesg to show idVendor and idProduct
Preboot in [Setup] [Startup / Cron] insert (enable this section)
modprobe usbserial vendor = product idVendor = idProduct

Now, if kernel support device, you must find 3g modem

Zen/Fulvio,
I've figured out the sierra driver in ZS is 1.2. The 598u (and any other models with the onboard flash drives) needs the 1.7 drivers. I've tried following the instructions for adding all the tools to compile a package, but I think my skill set is severly lacking Sad Is there a way just the Sierra lib could be compiled and added to the download site?
