This Post is the continuation of Micromax MMX 310G 3G modem settings (linux) So please go through it before implementing below settings this is basic of How to run any 3g modem on linux operating system..

 

 

STEPS :

1.  Install latest usb_modeswitch for opensuse 11.4 from here

Copy, paste & save

ATTENTION: If your modem has a different vendor- or product-id adjust  the strings !

 

 

3. Install Sakis3g Script for your architecture from here http://www.sakis3g.org/ or http://www.sakis3g.org/versions/latest/i386/sakis3g.gz

Install sakis3g by extract sakis3g and copy to /usr/bin/ with executing privelege

cd /usr/bin
wget 'http://www.sakis3g.org/versions/latest/sakis3g.gz'
echo "dda70fd95fb952dbb979af88790d3f6e  sakis3g.gz" | md5sum -c
You should see: sakis3g.gz: OK
gunzip sakis3g.gz
chmod +x sakis3g



4. Now Insert Micromax MMX 310G or any other 3g device and run sakis3g from root
Now follow the procedure of connecting and you are good to go :)  

NOTE: Also try latest Network Manager for Gnome they have solved this issue it will automatically detect your modem..it has some
lags initially but it works great.. usb_modeswitch intallation is necessary for it.
