PostPosted: Wed Oct 18, 2006 11:38 am    Post subject: Franklin CDU-550 Linux Directions

Here is the information (direct from Franklin) for getting the Franklin USB EVDO CDU-550 Modem working with Linux.

Quote:
Linux systems already have USB modem driver but needs to assign a device to a special node. After the assignment, user can use the node as a modem device.

Attached file is a shell script to create a node for "C-motech" modem. The script produces nodes which mount modem as a serial device. The CDU-550 modem will be mounted on /dev/ttyACM# where # is a number, for example, /dev/ttyACM2.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# usb : acm
echo -e "\033[32mMake Modem Device\033[0m"
for i in `seq 0 2` ; do
   mknod /dev/ttyACM$i c 166 $i
done

echo -e "\033[32mMake Dual Mode Device\033[0m"
for i in `seq 0 2` ; do
   mknod /dev/ttyUSB$i c 188 $i
done

echo -e "\033[32mMake driver rule\033[0m"

I tried to follow the instructions posted here but am not certain how to proceed. It is very possible that I skipped a step or did something else incorrectly. Here are the steps I followed:

1. Opened geany
2. Pasted in all of the text following "Code:" below.
3. Saved as /root/my-applications/franklincdu550/cdu550.sh
4. cd to: /root/my-applications/franklincdu550
5. Clicked on "cdu550.sh"
6. No errors, just a new "#" prompt

Did I do things correctly?

How do I get Setup - Network Wizard to see my USB modem, please?

Thanks! doc

Has anyone figured this out? Has the replier retried and fixed the issue?
