#11245 new defect

modeswitch fails for P14 USB Modem (4G XSStick P14)

Reported by: Manfred.Steiner@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: usb-modeswitch Cc:


I am working with the latest trunk version of squashfs-factory on a DLINK DIR-825 (Linux version 3.2.9, Tue Mar 13 20:33:19 MST 2012).

My Huawei E270 Modem is working without any problems. The 4G XSStick P14 is not working (but P14 is working on my Ubuntu 11.10 system).

My investigation ends in the result that the problem is caused by usb_modeswitch. I try to call the commands by hand and get the following output:
(look at the line with Sending the message returned error -145.).

# rmmod usbserial
# insmod usbserial vendor=0x1c9e product=0x9605
# usb_modeswitch -I -W  -s 1 -v 1c9e -p 9605 -m 1 -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/1c9e\:f000

Mode switch has failed. Bye.

Without rmmod and insmod the usb_modeswitch fails with "unknow driver.

Any ideas what I can do to fix the problem?

Sending a switch msg to a device that is already switched (1c9e:9605) will of course fail.
