Connecting with Huawai E3372 modem

Tue Feb 24, 2015 12:00 pm

I'm trying to connect with the usb modem Huawei E3372 using sakis3g. I've managed to connect with other Huawei USB modems, but not this one. Have anyone had success with this modem?

I am about to order the same modem and was looking if its supported by the PI.
I found the following instructions:

Hi, looked at the page. These instructions does not apply to Raspberry Pi and is about setting up the e3372 with "Cubietruck" as a hot pluggable USB modem. It does not talk about how to make e3372 connect to internet. At least from what I could understand....

This may give some ideas of alternative method as Sakis3G is afaiaa no longer developed

Just tried out this. Had some success. Managed to switch modem, but failed to connect properly as I could not find the correct modem init commands.

I'm trying to do the same, but it seems that I can't switch it with the usb_modeswitch. Someone did something to connect it?

Hi!
I managed to connect this device to my raspberry pi and it works flawlessly.

[email protected] ~ $ lsusb | grep Hua
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 12d1:14dc Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
This is what you wanna see in order to get it working as HiLink modem.

here is dmesg output
[ 3.432410] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg
[ 3.564023] usb 1-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=12d1, idProduct=14dc

[ 7.936841] usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_ether

As HiLink modem, it basically behaves as a router reachable over ethernet (eth1).... and not as USB modem.
To get it working just be sure you have usb_modeswitch installed and that the modem is getting enough current. In my case the raspberry USB port was not able to giving out enough juice and I had to use a powered usb hub.

If the e3372 gets enough power you should see the led constantly lit.
Good luck!

BTW I would love to get it working as USB modem.. since HiLink doesn't allow me to open ports on the internet! :(
Has anyone of you managed to do that?

i know it has been 6 months but open ports... thats more your ISP

most mobile broadband providers run their stuff on a private network so you will not be able to connect from the outside

a select few provides a public ip as a business option at a prem price
