The GL-AR300M mini router runs a Linux based Open WRT system, making it highly configurable. Recently i have been trying to use the 3G modem Option Globetrotter GI0505 i have with it, but without success.

By running dmesg | grep usb it seems that it is detected only as a USB drive, and ls /dev/ doesn’t show any ttyUSB devices. If usb-modeswitch is run with usbmode -l, it does say that there is a Found device: 0af0:d055 (Manufacturer: “Option Wireless Technology”, Product: “Globetrotter GI0505”, Serial: “Serial Number”), but the -s flag doesn’t seem to modeswitch anything.

What is missing here?
