HP Elitebook 840 G1: Can't use built-in Huawei UMTS Modem

Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:30 pm

Dear team,

I switched to Solus and I'm quite happy with your nice and solid piece of software.

The only thing that makes me struggle is my built-in HP hs3110 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband Device. Under OpenSuse Tumbleweed I had to load

# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x3f0 product=0x521d

and it was being noticed by the GNOME NetworkManager. Now it doesn't work anymore. Do you have any ideas?

Basis Specs about my system:
Model: HP Elitebook 840 G1
kernel: 4.14.13-46.current x86_64

Data:
# lsusb -s 001:004 -v

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:521d Hewlett-Packard
Device Descriptor:
bLength 18
bDescriptorType 1
bcdUSB 2.00
bDeviceClass 255 Vendor Specific Class
bDeviceSubClass 2
bDeviceProtocol 1
bMaxPacketSize0 64
idVendor 0x03f0 Hewlett-Packard
idProduct 0x521d
bcdDevice 0.01
iManufacturer 5 Hewlett-Packard
iProduct 4 HP hs3110 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband Device

# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x3f0 product=0x521d && journalctl -xe
