no change in 2.3.6 currently only the fonera 2.0g is a working 3G device for my E220

This bug is possibly related to #428, where the E220 does not work with an USB hub.

Steven, did you try connecting it directly without an USB hub?

Yes I tried both... also tried with huawei plugged in directly & rebooted the fonera 2.0n 2.3.6 as well in the logread I never see it "dial out"... just try& try & retry doing usbswitch...launching umts ... but never the ppp ATDT...dialing stuff so it 's not that i've entered incorrect settings?

My Huawei e220 (firmware version is usually able to connect with my Fonera 2.0n (firmware version Gari) on first try.

Sometimes however it doesn't connect on the first try. In which case I usually remove the modem from the USB port of the Fonera 2.0n and plug it in again and at that point the Fonera 2.0n is usually able to connect to the 3G network. Sometimes that doesn't help and I just reboot the whole router which usually fixes the problem.

Another problem is that every day the 3G signal disconnects by itself after having been connected for a number of hours and after that doesn't reconnect automatically. So at least sometimes the e220 is unable to reconnect automatically. It is of course also possible that the e220 is never able to reconnect automatically, however I cannot verify that this is the case.

As part of the upcoming firmware release, we're reviewing old open tickets to see if they are still relevant, which is why you get this response now.

I have an E220 here as well, which works fine with rc2 (but also earlier versions).

If this issue still occurs with the rc2 firmware, feel free to leave a comment here so we can further investigate.
