Configuring Yota on Ubuntu 10.04 for Intel 5150 WiMAX Card



    Now WiMAX is built into many laptops, for Windows users, in this regard, everything is simple and everything works from the factory and Yota Access runs it all. But those who use Linux remain aloof because the driver for it has not yet been written. And as it often happens in such cases, the community has to get out of it.

    This instruction for setting up a WiMAX card (Intel 5150) using the example of Ubuntu 10.04 + script for auto-tuning .


    Script configuration


    If you don’t want to bother with anything or just don’t understand something, use this script , it will do everything for you. You will only need to enter the root password.

    You need to download the script, unzip and run the command in the terminal:
    sh intel5150-wimax-driver.sh


    Manual setup


    If you do not want a script, then manually.
    First, download these files:


    1. We need to install the libnl-dev package. To do this, run the command
      sudo apt-get install libnl-dev

    2. Unzip the folders WiMAX-Network-Service-1.4.0 and Intel-WiMAX-Binary-Supplicant-1.4.0 and place them in the / usr / src / directory. Or do it all in the terminal with commands
      tar -xvjf ‘WiMAX-Network-Service-1.4.0.tar.bz2′ –directory /usr/src
      tar -xvjf ‘Intel-WiMAX-Binary-Supplicant-1.4.0.tar.bz2′ –directory /usr/src

    3. Now we put the driver.
      cd /usr/src/WiMAX-Network-Service-1.4.0
      make clean
      ./configure –prefix=/usr/ –with-i2400m=/usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) –localstatedir=/var
      sudo make
      sudo make install

    4. Let's Supplicant
      cd /usr/src/Intel-WiMAX-Binary-Supplicant-1.4.0
      sudo ./install_supplicant.sh installsudo cp -r /usr/local/lib/wimax/*.* /usr/lib/wimax/

    5. Now install the configs.
      sudo cp NDnSAgentConfig_forDriver.xml /usr/share/wimax/NDnSAgentConfig_forDriver.xml
      sudo cp NDnSAgentDefaultConfig.xml /usr/share/wimax/NDnSAgentDefaultConfig.xml


    Well, sort of like that.

    Connect to a Yota network


    The sequence of commands that I execute to connect. Everything should work now.
    sudo wimaxd
    sudo wimaxcu ron
    sudo wimaxcu scan //должен показать сеть
    sudo wimaxcu connect network 15



    List of necessary commands:

    sudo wimaxd — запуск демона
    sudo wimaxcu status — информация о подключении
    sudo wimaxcu scan сканирование доступных сетей
    sudo wimaxcu connect network 15 -подключение к Yota
    sudo dhclient wmx0 – авторизация (присвоение IP)
    sudo wimaxcu ron – переключение в режим WiMAX
    sudo wimaxcu roff – переключение в режим WiFi
    sudo wimaxcu status link
    wimaxcu reset factory — для сброса заводских настроек.
