Modem Not Detecting due to Port Speed in Windows

Is the data transfer rate set too high?
If your data transfer rate is set too high, your modem may not be able to connect to a modem that has a lower data transfer rate, or you may experience problems with your communications program.
To determine whether this is the problem, reset your data transfer rate by lowering your port speed.

To change your port speed
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Phone and Modem Options.
  3. On the Modems tab, click your modem, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Modem tab.
  5. In the list box under Maximum Port Speed, click 9600.

After you lower your port speed, try to use your modem.

Authentication and Protocol Settings for Citycell Dialup Connection

Error/ Reason to Configure
Error Type:  The protocol is not configured / A dial-up connection could not be established/ Username and password wrong

Common Requirement

The necessary information of dialup connection of Citycell are as below,

User Name:       waps
Password:          waps
Dial Number:    #777

Note: To know how to create dialup connection, then click here.

Internet Protocol Settings in Windows 7

Go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet and click on Networking and Sharing Center

Click on Change Adapter Settings

Now select the correct dialup connection which is created to get Internet (PPP - Point to Point Protocol) connection and right click on the icon to click Properties of the Dialup connection.

Note: To know how to create dialup connection, then click here.

Here, we will get a option to select the correct modem from multiple modems which will be used to get internet connection.

Here, we can set the rules which will require at the time of dial and at the time of auto re-dial to get internet connection.

Here, select Data encryption as No encryption allowed (server will disconnect if it requires encryption)

Here, we can select the correct protocol. Just do mark “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” which is used to get connection and unmark other protocols, if selected. To edit the other option of the protocol, click Properties button after selection the protocol.

Select Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Now, click the Advanced button to configure more.

Internet Protocol Settings in Windows Xp

By default, Windows dial-up networking connections bind the IPX/SPX and TCP/IP protocols to the dial-up adapter. However, most Internet service providers (ISPs) like Citycell requires only TCP/IP, Client for Microsoft Networks, and the dial-up adapter to connect to the Internet.

Turn off any unnecessary protocols. If same problem, then check Control Panel> ISP Name> (Right Click) Properties> Networking> Type of dial-up server I am calling> selected as PPP: Windows 95/98/NT 4/2000, Internet.

If Problem not solved, check whether IP address is selected as dynamically assign an Internet Protocol (IP) address, therefore check,

Installation of EC122 Modem in Ubuntu (Linux)

Step Start] Please confirm the following packages (with dependences packages) whether installed or not. To check you may executive following commands,
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ dpkg -s ppp
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ dpkg -s setserial
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ dpkg -s wvdial
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ dpkg -s wvstreams
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ dpkg -s usb-modeswitch

usb-modeswitch: mode switching tool for controlling "flip flop" USB devices. Several new USB devices have their proprietary Windows drivers onboard, especially WAN dongles. When plugged in for the first time, they act like a flash storage and start installing the driver from there. If the driver is already installed, the storage device vanishes and a new device, such as an USB modem, shows up. This is called the "ZeroCD" feature.

On Debian, this is not needed, since the driver is included as a Linux kernel module, such as "usbserial". However, the device still shows up as "usb-storage" by default. usb-modeswitch solves that issue by sending the command which actually performs the switching of the device from "usb-storage" to "usbserial".

Step 1] Plug-in the Huawei EC122 USB modem and open Terminal to execute the following two commands to the whether Huawei EC122 modem is identified by operating system
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 09da:000a A4 Tech Co., Ltd Port Mouse
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 12d1:1446 ONDA Communication S.p.A.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Here we get vendor id (12d1) and product id (1446) of Huawei EC122 modem. However product id as 1446 means that the modem acts as a storage device rather than as a modem.

Step 2] Now, we will edit the configuration file of usb-modeswitch to work Huawei EC122 device as a modem rather than as a storage device.
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo gedit /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
# Huawei EC122
DefaultVendor= 0x12d1
DefaultProduct= 0x1446
TargetVendor= 0x12d1
TargetProduct= 0x1001

Step 3] Execute the following command to make applicable of changes in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf file
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo usb_modeswitch
* usb_modeswitch: tool for controlling "flip flop" mode USB devices
* Version 0.9.5 (C) Josua Dietze 2008
* Works with libusb 0.1.12 and probably other versions
Looking for target devices
No target device found
Looking for default devices
Found default devices (1)
Prepare switching, accessing latest device
Looking for active default driver to detach it
OK, driver found ("usb-storage")
OK, Driver "usb-storage" successfully detached
Setting up communication with device
Trying to send the message
OK, message successfully sent.
-> See /proc/bus/usb/devices (or call lsusb) for changes. Bye

Step 4] Now execute lsusb command again to confirm whether product id changed from 1446 to 1001.
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 09da:000a A4 Tech Co., Ltd Port Mouse
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 12d1:1001 ONDA Communication S.p.A.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Note: if product id not changed then unplug the Huawei EC122 device and re-plug it and execute the command again.

Step 5] Now give parameters to kernel for identification of the modem and to do this use the following command
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1001

Step 6] Execute wvdialconf command to modify the file, /etc/wvdial.conf on the basis of Huawei EC122 modem identified by kernel.
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo wvdialconf
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 Z -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: Modem Identifier: ATI -- Manufacturer: QUALCOMM INCORPORATED
ttyUSB0<*1>: Speed 9600: AT -- OK
ttyUSB0<*1>: Max speed is 9600; that should be safe.
ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 -- OK
Found a modem on /dev/ttyUSB0.
Modem configuration written to /etc/wvdial.conf.

ttyUSB0: Speed 9600; init "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0"

Step 6] Before execute the final command we have to modify the /etc/wvdial.conf file to set phone number, user name and password based on ISP requirement
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
[Dialer citycell]
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Phone = #777
ISDN = 0
Username = waps
Init1 = ATZ
Password = waps
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 9600

Step End] Execute the wvdail command to get Citycell Ultra Zoom connection
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ sudo wvdial citycell
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ

To disconnect the Modem, just press Ctrl+C

Note: The following commands need to executive if security purpose unable to run the pppd called by wvdail in normal user mode rather than administration.
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273312 2010-03-07 09:59 /usr/sbin/pppd

ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root dip 273312 2010-03-07 09:59 /usr/sbin/pppd

Note: To check IP addresses and connection related other information then execute the following command
ZoomUltra@Citycell:~$ ifconfig
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr: P-t-P: Mask:

TX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

Note: in case of new version (Version 1.1.0 (C) Josua Dietze 2010) of USB modeswitch then check and edit the file by following below picture,

or execute the below command,
