Trouble connecting 3g modem

Sun Jan 29, 2017 1:42 am

I have an rb2011uias-2hnd-in running 6.38.

I didn't have the original usb otg cable that came with the router so i found a usb micro otg converter. When i connect the huawei e353 3g+ modem, it powers up and i get a green light on the stick.

On the router i can see the device detected from /system resource usb print
 # DEVICE VENDOR                               NAME                              SPEED                             
 0 1:1    Linux 3.3.5 ehci_hcd                 RB400 EHCI                        480 Mbps                          
 1 1:7    HUAWEI                               HUAWEI Mobile                     480 Mbps                          
I don't however see the usb port listed under /port print
 Flags: I - inactive 
 #   DEVICE NAME                                      CHANNELS USED-BY                                    BAUD-RATE
 0          serial0                                          1 Serial Console                             auto     
According to the docs I've read for this, it should be listed in the port print results.
Needless to say, there's no ppp interface for the device appearing when i connect it.

Any ideas?

For anyone interested, seems router needs a cold boot to properly detect the device.
It's working now!!

in doubt: Reboot
