I have got an AirStream TM 1100 WiMAX USB Adapter. It works without any drivers on a PC using Ubuntu but will not work on my Raspberry Pi. The kztech.cn website does not provide any drivers for the device. Could anybody help me install it?

  • Could you put the contents of dmesg, lsusb, and lsmod run on Ubuntu with the adapter plugged in on pastebin.com? – Fred Mar 27 '14 at 16:43
  • In ubuntu, dmesg, lsusb and lsmod. Sorry that I was gone. I am back again :D – Damodar Dahal May 24 '14 at 11:02

Insufficient RPi and USB power supply?

The normal RPi PSU and USB port might not have enough power/current for a USB modem. Maybe try it through a powered USB hub or at least a higher current RPi PSU. I have a Nexus 7 PSU that is 2A it sorted a few problems out.

  • Nope. Not that. I know that my USB dongle is receiving power properly. – Damodar Dahal May 24 '14 at 11:05
  • Are you running it through a powered USB hub? The USB ports only have about 100mA current - not the same as a USB on your PC. – xcxc May 30 '14 at 1:55
  • sorry, I tried a hub and it worked :D – Damodar Dahal May 30 '14 at 13:15
