Huawei E1550 on linux

Huawei is a famous company for inventing grade A telecommunicating devices. Huawei's E1550 is a one of best HSDPA devices I have ever touched. It's cheap and coming with superior facilities and offer higher bandwith up to 3.6mbps with cutting edge performance...

The package includes :- 1 usb device
                        1 data cable extension
                        User manuel
                        1 year warranty subscription from the local dealer

   This usb device is also inbuilt with micro SD a memory card slot also.. I checked my 16GB micro SD card in it. It has killer performance.... And also it suports both windows vista and xp and all new windows 7 too... There are no software disks. The software is stored in a ROM chip itself in the usb device... That's mean you don't have to take any extra things with you E1550!! This usb device automatically installs it's software in windows.. But not in linux.. When you plugged it in linux you may only see the memory card and the ROM chip. So as linux lovers like us we have to find some other way to install it.. YEAH I FOUND IT HOW TO CONFIGURE E1550 FOR LINUX !!!!!

So these are the steps....

1) Open your terminal

2) sudo apt-get install udev-extras

3) gksu gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/15-huawei-e1550.rules

4) An gedit will open automatically. Copy followings and paste there and save... Close it

   RUN+="/lib/udev/modem-modeswitch --vendor 0x12d1 --product 0x1446 --type option-zerocd"

 Now it's over. Plug the device and create a new Mobile Broadband Connection from Network Manager Applet.... Enjoy...
