Bekijk de volledige versie : Option iCON 225 modem in OLEG

10-06-2008, 07:20

As I understand it, the iCON 225 modem is not supported by default in Oleg's image. Are there any plans to support more modem types than Huawei (including the iCON 225) or is it up to each user to add the driver needed?

I've seen tutorials for using this modem in Ubuntu, so I guess it can be used on Linux. Could anyone give some ideas what has to be added to OLEG's image in order to support another modem?

Unfortunatly currently this modem not works. Others may work with the koppel firmware (cdma-wifi), witch based on oleg's.

On desktop linux distros this works with the HSO kernel module, that designed to kernel 2.6 series. I'm waiting for the solution too.

the latest hso driver 1.12 is for 2.6 kernels,and only version 0.1 was for 2.4
here's source and compiled hso.o against kernel for firmware (yes, you have to flash it to get driver working)

[admin@router /home]$ uname -a
Linux router #2 2009-07-28 12:34:25 YEKST mips GNU/Linux
[admin@router /home]$ insmod /home/hso.o
[admin@router /home]$ lsmod

but i have no modem of this kind, so can't test if it's working driver.

Thanks, but my solution was to switch to a Hauwei 220 modem instead (as you can see, the thread was quite old) which I'm running without any problems. :)
