Thread: Sim error: Huawei E3276-902 (8ta - HiLink) in Ubuntu 10.10

    Default Sim error: Huawei E3276-902 (8ta - HiLink) in Ubuntu 10.10

    Ok, so two issues that immediately come to mind from the title.
    Old Linux, and HiLink.

    Through various edits to usb_modeswitch database files and a manual command I did manage to get to the router admin page (192.168.1.1).
    I am then faced with a SIM error.
    Something like "no SIM detected" etc.

    My question is, does the SIM error relate to a possible problem in Linux, or is there really a problem with the SIM?
    Which means missioning to Telkom Direct.

    I did try the stick in a newer Linux (ubuntu 13.10), which autodetects as an ethernet connection, but the admin page still gives the SIM error.
    I didn't manage to connect within my VMWare Win7.
    beware the man of one book;

    Yes, upgrade to 14.04 and upgrade your E3276 firmware to the non-HiLink version 21.436.03.00.00.

    See here.

    Upgrading Linux would probably destroy most of the stuff I've done over the years, or so I assume.

    Anyway I've kinda managed to sort out the situation.

    When I first got the stick the lady at Telkom insisted she fit the sim.
    The fact that she tried to put it in the microSD slot should've alerted me.
    But she eventually found the right slot but said it's a microsim, so punched out the microsim part of the total sim.
    I went to Telkom Direct now and the guy sorted it out. It just needed the full size sim.

    I kludged my way through and made it all work on Ubuntu 10.10.
    Just copied a cdc_ncm driver, installed usb-modeswitch, updated the device database, unmounted the HiLink "CD", then manually detected the device with usb-modeswitch. Haven't tested stability yet.

    It's not supposed to destroy your stuff, but do a backup anyway.
