Default A solution - Huawei E220 USB Modem


Thanks for all the help. Both my problems have been solved

1. Getting Yum through a proxy server
2. Codecs - thanks Tim for that detailed reply

Today I would like to provide a solution to a problem. See it is easy
to ask questions and tap information. Hopefully I can make someone's
day for a change.
I have been struggling to get my USB E220 modem going for a while now -
3 Months to be exact. Last night I stumbled upon a solution. Quick

I am running Fedora Core 9 with KDE 4.0 with kernel

This should fix the issue of the modem continuously restarting.

You will have to edit this file
"/usr/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/10osvendor/20-broken-usb-sticks.fdi" and
add to it the following:

<match key="@storage.originating_device:usb.vendor_id" int="0x12d1">
<match key="@storage.originating_device:usb.product_id" int="0x1003">
<merge key="info.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>

Then I used the Network Manager applet to to configure the APN settings
under the Mobile Broadband tab.

I know about the Betavine project and those guys do and excellent job.
I just do not use the beta software because the last time I did it I had
more problems than solutions. I do check
there website twice a week to see if the final release of version 2 of
the software is not yet released. Maybe not the best way, but at least
and alternative. This should also work for Gnome but I cannot guarantee it.
I do know that I get HSDPA speed although KDE only shows it as a GPRS or
GSM connection.
