I tried both
/etc/netctl/examples/mobile_ppp and added number and APN name as there's no pin/pass/username and set interface to
/dev/ttyUSB0 (also tried the other
ttyUSB2 as well).
My `/etc/netctl/mobile_ppp` file's contents are as follows: Description='Example PPP mobile connection' Interface='ttyUSB0' Connection='mobile_ppp' PhoneNumber='*99#' # Use default route provided by the peer (default: true) #DefaultRoute=true # Use DNS provided by the peer (default: true) #UsePeerDNS=true # The user and password are not always required #Userfirstname.lastname@example.org' #Password='very secret' # The access point name you are connecting to AccessPointName='internet' # If your device has a PIN code, set it here. Defaults to 'None' #Pin=None # Mode can be one of 3Gpref, 3Gonly, GPRSpref, GPRSonly, None # These only work for Huawei USB modems; all other devices should use None Mode=3Gonly # ^ tried all other options too
netctl start mobile_ppp "connects" silently with no errors on output and shown on
journalctl -xe, but there's no actual connection.
And it also shows
* sign prepended on its name when issuing
netctl list (as if really connected/operating).
Currently I am connected with
netctl but with
wls1 (Wi-Fi profile set up with
Moreover the USB modem is not shown in the
nm-applet of NetworkManager, what I installed separately.
Also, the modem's LED turns blue as if connected or operating, but with no results.
I did a lot of research on the web, came across and read wikis and other users asking about similar issues, and tried the solutions, installed many many packages in Arch Linux, but unfortunately nothing worked for me to simply connect with the modem which used to automatically connect on Fedora 25 (without GNOME even).
