getting huawei e8231 work on ubuntu 14.04

After connecting, i get following in lsusb

It says “Mass storage mode”. If you check demesg, you will see

Last line says, device mounted as “/dev/sr1”

Changing Device Mode to Modem

I found some information about the device in file

It says device can operate as products “14db” and “14dc”.

I tried changing device mode to product id 14db, it did not work, so tried 14dc and it worked.

Now “ifconfig” shows usb0.

If you check “lsusb”, now device have different product id.

Connecting To Internet

You will need to disable eth0 or all traffic will be routed through it by default.
