Re: Verizon/Novatel USB551L support?

Hey Jason,

I have a Verizon/Novatel USB551L 4G/LTE (with CDMA 3G fallback) that I'm
trying to get working. I'm running Fedora 18 (kernel
3.8.4-202.fc18.x86_64) with NetworkManager and ModemManager With these versions the modem doesn't seem to get detected
correctly. The only thing I can find about NM/MM and this device is
commit 463de46e on April 17th of this year by Dan Williams, with a
comment of "novatel: ignore USB551L / Just like the E362, which the
USB551L is quite similar to." which adds the USB ID to
forbidden_products for in mm-plugin-novatel.

I use KNetworkManager as a frontend, and when I plug in the device, it
appears to be recognized but when I attempt to add a connection, my only
option is "Installed CDMA Device". I've tried adding a CDMA connection
with no luck, and NM (or at least KNM) doesn't seem to know anything
about the LTE.

Does anyone have this device working? If not, devs, I can open a bug
report and provide NM and MM debug output, lsusb, etc. My C skills are
pretty poor (virtually nonexistent), but I'm willing to provide any
assistance that I can to get this working properly.

You should probably try to use ModemManager >= 0.7.x or directly compile
git master. I've got some (old) packages for F18 x86_64 here, which you
may give a try:
