Yes. This would be my target & desired solution.

That is common issue,
once people solve their issue no one bother to add it to wiki

Sorry for the delay. Here is what ended up working for us.

Edit /opt/vyatta/etc/config/scripts/vyatta-postconfig-bootup.script and add the following lines. You can also do this from the CLI first to see if the modem will enumerate.


modprobe option
echo 1bc7 1201 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
(this should make the modem enumerate under /dev if it hasn't already.)

you can identify the hex needed in the previous command by issuing lsusb

Then create interface wlm101

set interfaces wirelessmodem wlm101 device ttyUSB3
set interfaces wirelessmodem wlm101 network att
commit

edit the chat scripts in /etc/ppp/peers to inculde ONLY the following text:


att-TNAG-chat
TIMEOUT 35
ECHO ON
'' \rATZ
OK 'ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0'
OK AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","broadband","0.0.0.0",0,0
OK ATD*99***1#
CONNECT ''



Additional notes:
Signal strength
sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB4
AT+CSQ


DIAGNOSTICS
lsusb Shows modem identifier (1bc7 ....)

sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB3 115200
AT OK response
AT+CSQ check signal strength
to quit (ctrl+a ctrl+d)


I apologize for the delay. This forum has helped me out a great deal. And I hope to contribute something useful.
