Stanron Tech: USB_Modeswitch. Can anyone help? (13) RE: Tech: USB_Modeswitch. Can anyone help? 21 Oct 18

There is no other router. I got rid of my landline a year ago. The device is a USB mobile internet modem. The same sort of thing that gets internet on a phone through a sim card.

Written on the Device is

'4G LTE USB Modem F
DL:100Mbps UL:50Mbps'

various symbols and 'RoHS'

lsusb identifies it as

Bus 003 Device 005: ID 05c6:f000 Qualcomm, Inc.

05c6    is the Vendor id and

f000    is the product id.

$ sudo usb_modeswitch -v 05c6 -p f000 -i 0


Look for default devices ...
   product ID matched
Found devices in default mode (1)
Access device 003 on bus 003
Current configuration number is 1
Use interface number 0

USB description data (for identification)
Manufacturer: Qualcomm, Incorporated
    Product: Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM
Serial No.: 1234567890ABCDEF
Warning: no switching method given. See documentation
-> Run lsusb to note any changes. Bye!

I can't work out from the documentation what to do next.
