DIR-655 w 3G USB modem does not connect
« on: January 27, 2010, 08:58:55 AM »

3G Modem: Huawei E1750 USB UMTS/HSDPA (works fine when connected direct to computer)

Can you see anything in the Logs ?
Is the router dialing ? Does the behavior of your Huawei change ? (LED color change or blinking ?)

If not, seems the router does not recognize this stick.
Only a few are supported.

Log
USB 3G: init

That is logged before the 3G modem was connected.
Nothing else relevant, I think

No other sign of any attempt do connect or dial.

LED
green double flash = Power On
the slow blue flash, no matter what I do

What do you think?


Huawei E1750 LED
1.   Power On----Green light double flash
2.   GPRS(GSM/GPRS/EDGE) Registered----Green light flash
3.   UMTS(WCDMA/HSDPA) Registered----Blue light flash
4.   GPRS Connected----Green light steady
5.   WCDMA Connected----Blue light steady
6.   HSDPA Connected----Cyan light steady
7.   USB hardware removed----LED off

It is the same with my ZTE Stick - it receives power and the blue LED blinking for UMTS signal found.
But in the Log no recognition.
I do not think the Huawei E1750 is supported though some Huawei models are known as working with the DIR.

Sorry if I'm making a stupid question but, is your SIM protected by a PIN? If so disable it using the management program of your PC.

I have the same problem with a Huawei E182E (up to 16 Mbps)

Anyone knows where there is a list with supported 3G modems for the DIR-655??
I have been stalking around but can´t find such a list

Good question. Anyone?
Anyone knows if Huawei E1750 is or will be supported?

I had the same problem, only difference was I had a DIR-855 with Huawei E1550 3G modem. I could not get it to work at all. Worked fine when connected directly to my computer though.

So I bought the DWM-156 instead. Still, it did not work when I had the modem connected to the DIR-855. But the I tried the FW upgrade (DIR855A2_FW121EUB01Beta01.zip) from ftp://ftp.dlink.se/Products/dir-products/dir-855/drivers_firmware/ and lo and behold, not it works perfectly. This might not be applicable to you since you obviously got a DIR-655, but I thought I'd share this anyways.

After the FW upgrade and using the following settings, life is once again sweet:

Settings:
My USB type is: 3G USB Adapter
Internet Connect type: 3G USB Adapter
Country: Sweden
ISP: Telenor
Dial: *99#
Authentication: Auto
APN: internet.telenor.se
Reconnect Mode: Always on
DNS1: 204.194.232.200
DNS2: 204.194.234.200

Until now I doubted that it isn't possible to conect to an 3G modem through the usb port of the DIR-655. But this thread and the selection possibilities of my connection configuration put me right.

First of all, I would check the firmware and may update it to the newest (european) one - atm 1.32b01 (see here for the ftp links).

@luring: your swedish provider seems to define other configuration - especially the DNS data.

Använd i första hand medföljande programvara från telefonleverantören. Mobiltelefonen ska också vara installerad som modem i din dator.

- Användarnamn/Username: Skall ej anges (är fältet tvingande, ange valfritt användarnamn/username)

(source: www.telenor.se; section 'Inställningar för Mobil data' / in english: www.telenor.se; section 'Settings for Mobile Data ')

[EDIT]
Did you set the device-type in the settings? AFAIK have you to define the via usb connected device as '3G USB-Adapter'.
path: config page => setup => usb settings (http://192.168.0.1/Basic/USB.shtml)
[/EDIT]

Another, simple, question: is at the routers location a connection to the mobile network possible?

... and if You by any chance get a strange error message, saying that the third ??? address should be a numeric value, try entering the DNS servers as 217.174.65.61 & 62 instead.

That made the trick on my DIR-825  (with the DWM-156)

When i bought my DIR-655, i ask the shopkeeper will this router work with 3g modem?
The shopkeeper told me it only work with Dlink's 3G modem and he recommend me to buy DWM-156 3G USB modem.
So i bought the Dir-655 and DWM-156 and they work perfectly well.

for support of other brand modem like Huawei it is better to get the Dir-412 or Dir-451 router.

Hi Chengfansoon.
Can you show a dir-655 setup for 3G USB modem? (e.g.  Print out of display)
