Re: 3G Modem DHCP time out

Thank's a lot Bjørn for pointing me this bug report. It appears that
it's exactly the bug I'm encountering (on the same laptop by the way).

I'm very far away from being an expert about that, but if I understand,
the simplest way to make thinks work currently with a 3.8.x kernel would
be to rebuild my kernel with the key CONFIG_USB_NET_CDC_MBIM set to "n".
Is that correct ?

Thanks again,

This may be a problem introduced with the cdc_mbim driver in Linux 3.8. The problem is that we don't have 
userspace support for it yet.

See for more details. 

Ben Hutchins suggested that ModemManager could include a modprobe.d *.conf snippet setting ncm as preferred 
until the MBIM support is ready. But this might not be so easy as long as you need a 3.8.5 or newer kernel 
to have this option...

Ideas are welcome.
