I have been given a new modem dongle and I would like if possible to get it work with my pi.
It is an Alcatel OneTouch L800Z. Like most of these it first shows on a Windows machine as a USB CD, then once the software is installed it becomes an ethernet port.
Having searched I think I need usb_modeswitch to change it over in Wheezy and as such I have apt-get usb_modeswitch.
I am now stuck as I can't find the ID's it needs (or what to with them when I know what they are ).
The last message that widows event log has for this is
Driver Management has concluded the process to add Service usb_rndisx for Device Instance ID USB\VID_1BBB&PID_0195&MI_00\7&1BA77EA6&0&0000 with the following status: 0.
When doing a lsusb it shows as 1bbb:0195. I also see it as /dev/sda
I can see in ifconfig that therer is a usb0 and the first 3 pairs of the mac are registed to alcatel but it doesnt have the 192.168.1.1 it normally gets in windows
Any help very welcome, thanks
