LG LXU 800

It does not work out of the box in Ubuntu.

The device shows up, if lsusb is run. But no driver claims this device. But if on standard ubuntu run following command:

modprobe usbserial vendor=0xeab product=0x9357

The device is detected. It shows up as three tty devices

ls -la /dev/ttyU* 

For purpose of using it as modem we are interested in only /dev/ttyUSB0 device. The modem can be configured with wvdial with this configuration in /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = AT
Init2 = ATE0V1
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 115200
New PPPD = yes
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = 0
Phone = "#777"
Password = <your password>
Username = <your username>

Wvdial and its graphical frontend gnome-ppp

Many graphical frontends are available like gnome-app to connect using this device.


Reliance claims that this device runs on linux. But no configuration details or step by step technical documentation is available.

Dependencies and sub-dependencies
