it appears to be fixed by doing this
usb_modeswitch -c /usr/share/usb_modeswitch/12d1:1446 -v 12d1 -p 1446 > /dev/null

Hello folks just been doing some looking around /usr/share/usb_modeswitch and I see this model no is not included for my huawei usb modem
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 12d1:1436 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E173 3G Modem (modem-mode)
is there anyway I can edit usb_modeswitch to include this
regards Ron
in my previous post I said my problem was solved but only partially because the fix is not permanent I have to put in via terminal every reboot this was the fix
usb_modeswitch -c /usr/share/usb_modeswitch/12d1:1446 -v 12d1 -p 1446 > /dev/null
any help much appreciated
regards ron
