Hello,

my ThinkPad came equipped with a Qualcomm Gobi 2000 wwan (3g) modem, but I can't seem to find any info as to wheter it is supported by fbsd or not.

Usbconfig says:
Code:
ugen1.3: <Qualcomm Gobi 2000 Qualcomm Incorporated> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON

 Configuration index 0

    bLength = 0x0009 
    bDescriptorType = 0x0002 
    wTotalLength = 0x0020 
    bNumInterfaces = 0x0001 
    bConfigurationValue = 0x0001 
    iConfiguration = 0x0001  <Qualcomm Configuration>
    bmAttributes = 0x00e0 
    bMaxPower = 0x00fa 

    Interface 0
      bLength = 0x0009 
      bDescriptorType = 0x0004 
      bInterfaceNumber = 0x0000 
      bAlternateSetting = 0x0000 
      bNumEndpoints = 0x0002 
      bInterfaceClass = 0x00ff 
      bInterfaceSubClass = 0x00ff 
      bInterfaceProtocol = 0x00ff 
      iInterface = 0x0000  <no string>

     Endpoint 0
        bLength = 0x0007 
        bDescriptorType = 0x0005 
        bEndpointAddress = 0x0081  <IN>
        bmAttributes = 0x0002  <BULK>
        wMaxPacketSize = 0x0200 
        bInterval = 0x0020 
        bRefresh = 0x0000 
        bSynchAddress = 0x0000 

     Endpoint 1
        bLength = 0x0007 
        bDescriptorType = 0x0005 
        bEndpointAddress = 0x0001  <OUT>
        bmAttributes = 0x0002  <BULK>
        wMaxPacketSize = 0x0200 
        bInterval = 0x0020 
        bRefresh = 0x0000 
        bSynchAddress = 0x0000
Any ideas?

Try loading u3g(4) and see if it recognizes the card.

Thanks for the driver tip.

Unfortunately nothing shows up in dmesg, so it is probably not recognized. Some searching gives that even the linux-crowd are having a tough time with it :/

Try putting it in /boot/loader.conf and reboot. Most of the USB device drivers need to be loaded before the device is plugged in. But because it's most likely build-in it'll be somewhat hard to remove and reinsert :e

Tested with the modules in /boot/loader.conf, but still nothing :(

You are correct in that it is built in ;)

allright, so i made it to work on that hp machine, i did a kernel patch to recognise that device with u3g module (patch was merged long time ago), then firmware needs to be uploaded using gobi_loader [1] utility. firmware you need to take from windows drivers, those are 3 files you can put in /boot/firmware/gobi and then load it into device with devd rule matching vid/pid of the device..
